One Life Left

Definitely the UK's favourite radio show (sort of) about videogames.


Commissioned by London’s award-winning Resonance 104.4 FM in early 2006, One Life Left was only meant to run for six episodes.

Take that, The Man because now, somewhere around one hundred and fifty episodes later, it’s in its seventh season and grown from humbling, terrified, fumbling beginnings into one of the station’s most valued shows.

Take THAT, The Man. Also take that, British radio standards.

One Line Left Songlist: Help Required

As regular listeners will know, One Life Left is hosting an ill-advised / amazing [delete as applicable] karaoke evening at Nottingham Game City. Songs will have rewritten lyrics and we — and you — will sing them, culminating in a collective version of Do They Know It’s Christmas Time. Yes, we know. We know.

We’d love for you to take some of the blame for this help us rewrite some of the songs. As a guide here are the sort of things we’d like to see on the playlist as we stagger around the venue:

9 To 5: Dolly Parton
Torn: Natalie Imbruglia
Parklife: Blur
Mr. Brightside: The Killers

So, if you’re stuck for inspiration but want to get involved, please, please feel free to take one of those and turn it into something special. Or ‘special’. And if you don’t know what I mean by either form of special there, listen to Simon’s self-penned take on Uprising in #149 or Ann’s Fame (provided by the amazing Dave Green) in #150, appearing on your podcast feed very soon…

    Hiya
    I’m rewriting Sound of the Underground for you guys. The song fits like a glove for the topic I have in mind, but I’m going to keep it a surprise ;)
    I might also sing it and send that as a demo along with lyrics of course.

    Hi Guys

    Where is the next pod-cast? Always look foward to the show but wishing it could be uploaded on a more regular time frame.

  3. hiya possibly not helping but if you haven’t already mentioned my “We Will Bioshock You” idea on the show, this could also be a medley with Blondie’s Rapture which is where Bioshock takes place (probably harder to sing though)

    +other 2 ideas, one of which is a tune you already have or whatever that list is :)
    Half Life instead of Park Life
    Heavy Rain to the tune of Penny Lane
    (these are also both “list songs” so possibly easy-ish to adapt)
