Richie Webb, the man who composes Savage Songs, is a genius. We’re all captivated by the hilarious, wonderfully educational sketches and best of all, the Horrible Histories Savage Songs.
Last summer the BBC Proms held a free concert featuring the best of the best. (Take a look at the end of this post.)
From then, we were all hooked. I bought the DVDs (which helpfully have all the Savage Songs sections in the extras.) There are loads more to watch (the Dick Turpin homage to Adam Ant is also worth a mention)
Here are our Top 5 Savage Songs
5: Cleopatra “I’m a pharoah don’t you dare-o mess with me-o.”
4: William Wallace, Scottish Rebel Ooh that smarts!
3: Boudicca Don’t Diss this Miss!
2: Pachacuti – a hilarious take on all those awful summer holiday songs
1: Viking Song – Literally We’ll drink a toast from your skull…cos we’re Vikings, that’s how we roll
