An unusual song called "Boiler Change" has reached the top of the UK pop charts, out-selling by two to one its nearest rival "Love a love of lovely love" by a talent show reject.
"Boiler Change" is a unique track, consisting of an actual real life recording of two plumbers changing a boiler, over a light drum track. It is taken from the album "The Sound of Plumbing", which features other songs called "Blocked Drain", "It'll Cost You" and "Replacing the Ball-Cock". All of these songs feature real plumbers going about their work. Occasional vocal sounds can also be heard, such as someone saying "pass the wrench," or "ow, that's my foot, you wanker!"
This "plumbing" music is very popular amongst youths, who can often be heard on buses, in shopping centres and on park benches playing it loudly on their headphones. One hooded youngster who admitted to owning the album said, "Yeah, this music is banging!" It is unclear whether he was commenting on how much he liked the music, or describing what it sounds like.
The album follows last year's hit record, "Now That's What I Call Gas-Fitting 7".
