From the album Peace, Love & Funkiness
"The Basement Jaxx track 'Hey You' was the inspiration behind this song. Being a member of the Eastern European gypsy music band 'Fanfara' from Brighton, when I first heard this track I immediately thought how good it would be to get 'Fanfara' onto my album. I also wanted to write a song about the environment and so 'Situation Critical' was born. This track also includes the 'in peril' music from the TV series 'Thunderbirds' written by Barry Gary and other musical quotes."

We’ve been telling you for years. Signs of warning everywhere.
Now you see we’re dancing down the road of self destruction.
The sun will always shine so the planet will be fine
It’s just the human race that will be fucked.
Our future’s looking grim - survival chances getting slim.
Tearing up the planet that will keep us breathing.
Pollution in the air. Changing seasons everywhere
With global warming we had better learn to swim.
Heatwave in the winter – what we gonna do?
Now there’s flooding rains in the summer
Is it getting through to you?
Have we got a clue?
