Strikey – “I Remember”

Hip Hop, Rap, UK Asian

Score: 6.9

Strikey is a rapper so blissfully lacking in self-awareness that somehow, he’s managed to pull off a bit of a blinder on this one. The lyrics are embarrassingly bad. His delivery is awful. And yet, when combined with the manipulative video (it’s a surprise that a freephone number doesn’t flash up at the end, imploring you to donate) and the hauntingly beautiful beat, “I Remember” somehow transforms into a relatively successful emotional roller-coaster. Yes, it’s the sort of thing you could rip the piss out of all day, but sometimes a song just puts you in touch with that innocent inner child in all of us, so switch off your brain and get swept away by it.
