We replaced the lyrics from famous songs with the word “mugwump”. No, really…

This would normally be the point when we insert some kind of rationale or reasoning why we created this particular article, but there truly is no reason for what we are about to show you so we don’t really know what to say.

The word “mugwump” is not made up by the way, it actually refers to “a person who remains aloof or independent, especially from party politics”. We could say that this is some kind of commentary on how the role of politics in society has become, but it really isn’t…

Like Alfie Deyes’ blog this is completely pointless, but perhaps therein lies the genius. Observe.

1. Ari loves feeling like a mugwump.


2. 5SOS love it…


3. Taylor should have known better…


4. Little Mix are so generous…


5. 1D have been hoarding mugwump


6. Fifth Harmony don’t gotta go to mugwump…

Now head of all things content, David takes being a music fanboy to a whole new level, and can often be found dancing like there's nobody watching to 'Shout Out To My Ex', obsessing over Lauren Jauregui and defending Taylor Swift's honour.

David once appeared on TV in Armenia. Apparently, "it was awesome".
