Riff: Olly Murs – “Army Of Two”

Feb 28, 2013

Soldiers, follow my lead. Repeat after me/Our faith is the bullet, hope is the gun

from Army Of Two lyrics by Olly Murs

After successfully aping Maroon 5 on “Troublemaker,” Murs looks to the pomp-rock of Tears For Fears‘ “Sowing The Seeds Of Love” for its follow-up on a schmaltz-ridden tribute to the awfully-named army of ‘Murmaids’ that have helped him surpass Robbie Williams as Britain’s favourite cheeky chappie.
