This website, if it wasn’t already obvious, is for the study of songs written by David Lewis Gedge and all the ephemera that come with them. Since 1985 or so, we’ve been able to enjoy his work, whether it be guised as The Lost Pandas, Cinerama or even The Wedding Present.
So, what is this study? Well, it is an attempt to catalogue and analyse the songs, each one shot through the prism of personal reflection. Best of all David Gedge himself is fully supportive of the site and he is full and frankly answering a range of questions about each song. This site will also therefore provide a definitive version of the lyrics. So head to the Songography section to see what’s been covered in-depth so far.
As you’ll see from the Songs List page, there are, as of 2016, 235 original songs by Gedge (& co). With (hopefully) more songs to come and unreleased ones on top (and maybe even a look at the cover versions at some point), this is a project that will likely never be completed but I’d like to think it’s one worth attempting.
Lastly, a request – if you have any questions about any of the songs, preferably ones that haven’t already been covered, please drop me a line and I will see if I can get David to answer them. My contact details are below or you can send me messages directly on here.
