Boris Johnson gives David Cameron a beating … but don’t worry it’s only in the music charts!

Updated: September 20, 2012

RECORD bosses have released musical compilation albums with tracks inspired by Boris Johnson and David Cameron – and Boris is outselling the PM by two-to-one.

Selling … the Boris album artwork

Producers at Vantage Music selected classic tracks that they reckon are appropriate for each politician – and they’ve released the results to go head to head in the digital download charts.


The album artwork for ‘Music Inspired by Boris Johnson’ has a smiling face of the London Mayor against a backdrop of a bale of hay and a Union flag.

It features tracks including ‘I Just Can’t Wait To Be King’ by The Wild Symphonic Seven, ‘Court Jester’ by Danny Kaye and ‘Sixteen Tons’ by Tennessee Ernie Ford.


The PM meanwhile is seen looking glum against rainy backdrop for ‘Music Inspired by David Cameron.’ Tracks include ‘You’ve Got To Pick A Pocket Or Two’ by Ron Moody, ‘Let’s Stick Together’ by The Wildlife and ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’ by the Glamettes.

2nd place … the David Cameron album

A spokesman for Vantage Music said: “We spent a lot of time researching the tracks and think we have come up with some great compilations. Boris is the most popular by far.”


A third album, ‘Music Inspired By Bob Crow’, features a stern-looking photo of the union boss and tracks like ‘Nice Work If You Can Get It’ by Sarah Vaughan, ‘Big Boss Man’ by Conway Twitty and ‘Get A Job’ by Silouette.  It has sold fewer than the other two.

The compilations are available on Amazon and iTunes.
