This is an awsome song Tim.. can i have your permission to do a cover of this song in my band because we love it so much? we will give all the credit to you because you are so wonderfull…

Reece on 13th of August 2009

Hi Tim,
Just wondering where you got your coat from! I love it!!!!!!!
favourite songs at the moment are ‘not perfect’ and ‘you grew on me’!

Sue on 9th of August 2009

How many pseudonyms do you have?? XXXX

Dr Bob on 6th of June 2009

I saw this piece of art on Rage tonight and thought it was great. It did make me want to get up and go climb into bed with my wife and now I am typing this to you with U2 in the background.

It really did surprise me after ‘Canvas Bags’ which i have seen Tim perform live to great applause.

I would like to know where I can get hold of a copy of the Rage play-list tonight. (I would, assuredly, be happy to purchase it)I found myself forgoing watching both the rugby and the cricket as I gleefully sang songs that i have been unexpectedly reacquainted with.

Thank you Tim, I very much appreciate your selection.

Katrin on 22nd of May 2009

Seems you can have a dark side too :-) How about bringing out another cd with your not so funny stuff – this is beautiful :-)

Kathryn on 11th of May 2009

I have been listening to Drowned obsessively since Saturday and I think it’s amazing; I wish the music I wrote sounded as good as this

Jed Dancer on 20th of April 2009

I’ve been hooked ever since i saw “If I Didn’t Have You” on the secret policeman’s ball. I’ve been obsessed with every song, and “Angry” had me in fits of laughs for hours!
Drowned is a truly great song, which does display your unique ability to combine a little humour with deep meaning and emotion. Just like “Not Perfect”, which has some amazing comments on the state of humanity.
I wish i’d heard about your tour dates sooner… I’d have loved to come and see you live.

Steph on 12th of April 2009

Hi Tim,
This song is so emotional! It really is beautiful. This is the kinda of thing all songwriters SHOULD aspire to. I think it’s fantastic that you can write a song like this then one like “10 foot cock and a few hundred virgins”. You’re AMAZING!!!
Steph xx

Katie Huxtable =] on 24th of March 2009

I. Love. This. Song.
as do I love all your songs :D
I am soooo excited to see yo in Aberdeen in october :D
10 foot cock and a few hundred virgins is like actually on repeat on my ipod :D

Abi on 17th of March 2009

I bought this sing , its amazing (:
Can’t wait to see you in Swansea !

Jacquie E. on 17th of March 2009

I love you Tim!
Musical genius!!!

Alexander on 24th of January 2009

I watched the clip and really liked it. It was a cool new version of a previous song, twas awesome. I’ll probably go and see the movie just to hear it again :P

ollie mead on 23rd of January 2009

oh and I hope you autograph my girlfriend

ollie mead on 23rd of January 2009

You make me feel so thrilled about life in general. I appreciate you .

Thanks for the validation

Sam Waugh on 22nd of January 2009

When are you next touring the uk??

james on 22nd of January 2009

you are hilarious. i mean really funny, and intelligent. i like your music. you can sing/perform better than most of today’s truly quality *cough* chart toppers, plus you bring a comic element, which in my opinion puts the icing on the cake. it’s a nice cake by the way, not a supermarket one.

i mean, you can also totally send me lots of free merchandise, im up for that. seriously, do. i know where you live.

btw that wasnt an actual threat, dont get the cops onto me. im too young to be violated by prison lords.

Bec on 22nd of January 2009

That’s a rather lovely love song. Not really a surprise that your black sense of humour hides a slightly bruised sentimental side. I like it. It’s normal.

Patrick on 22nd of January 2009

dude you’re hilarious and a very talented musician. I would like to be a musician but, and my family thinks i’m funny.. somewhat. I don’t, but it’s the only thing in life i like to do as far as work goes. How did you get started with your career?

Olivia Jones on 22nd of January 2009

Hi Tim,

Don’t know if you actually read this, Your Adelaide Fringe show could you PLEASE play “the christmas song”. My we lost out sister just before christmas and she loved this song and loved your music. Here name was Nadia , we are going to the Saturday night show ( the 2nd one ). It would mean a great deal to all of us.

Heather R on 21st of January 2009

Attn: LEN
It appears that for now N.America is just going to kind of get the short end of the stick… I am begrudgingly accepting it because I enjoy Tim so much. But the more of us the merrier, it increases our chances of eventually getting some sort of official American release.

josh on 21st of January 2009

You are awsome
ever considered doing something at epsom playhouse.

Cameron Kinsey on 20th of January 2009

To Tim I would just like to mention that I think you are absolutly halarious. I have bought your “So Live” DVD and tried desperately to get a ticket to your show in Aberdeen Scotland at The Lemon Tree. I plan to go and see you in London on your “Ready For This” tour but failing that would you be able to inform me as to whether you will be comming back to Scotland any time soon.

Yours Sincerely Cameron Kinsey

Len on 20th of January 2009

Happy New Year, Tim.

Saw you (twice) in NyC last year and am still raving about it. Yowza!

I must admit, however that I’m a bit envious that your DVD is only available in the PAL format. What about those of us on this side of the pond? Are you going to make me buy a universal DVD player? (Because I will, you know.)

Zoe on 20th of January 2009

Dear Tim,

I’m absolutely desperate to inculde the song you did for the Amnesty International secret policeman’s ball, If I Didn’t Have You, on my upcoming witty and sardonic valentine’s day mixtape for my witty and sardonic boyfriend. Please pretty please release it as a download – I’m asking way early so you have plenty of time to take a quick recording before February 14th rolls around…

Also I think you’re completely brilliant etc etc. Keep it up.


kate on 20th of January 2009

hi tim, i met you in darligton and have listened to you since. now i’m sat in english trying to explain to my friends how cool you are. but shhh i’m not on your site during english lesson.

xxx kate

Lauren on 19th of January 2009

Tim –

My cousin in England got me absolutly hooked to your songs. I listen to you on YouTube while I’m at work. When are you going to come to the states?

Sam Wright on 19th of January 2009

hello thaaaar

erm dont know if this goes to Tim Minchin, or someone behind a cute little desk, but anyway…

You mentioned before in one of your songs that you don’t appeal to the teenage market, well im a teenager, i feel quite appealed to :) wow that sounded almost rude

i was just going to say keep doing your thing because its really good, i think your an incredible musician and you have a fantastic vocabulary which is nice apart from where i sometimes have to get out the old dictionary to understand what the fuck your talking about!

But yeah i really don’t have anything that exiting to mention, so i can understand if this is another letter straight for the delete box but hey atleast i tried

I dont see how people dont like your work, my girlfriend thinks your shit, she hates your voice she claims its wierd, dont worry i shouted at her for you so you dont have to bother, your ego shouldnt be scratched at all :)

im 15, im a teenager, and i think you should do a live tour in the UK especially around the south-east, ill be there :)

seeya, Tim/Person who reads these for Tim/Recycle Bin

Sam (a fellah from England)

amanda on 19th of January 2009

Really enjoyed your performance at secret polcemans ba. You are an amazing performer and comedian. Tried to get tickets for concert on 16th but it had sold out.When will you be performing in london again?

Jack Patient on 19th of January 2009

Timmy,me and some mates caught you on youtube a couple of nights ago….. wicked stuff, personal/ confessional, tight lyrics with a really varied delivery. GET THE FUCK BACK TO ENGLAND FOR SOME GIGS! We totally found you at the wrong time man. Anyway, one of my mates said you were just like Russell Brand, but funny.

Kel on 19th of January 2009

A friend of mine is a piano performance major and we have a “just for kicks” silly recital coming, and we were wondering if 10 Foot Cock & A Few Hundred Virgins has sheet music. We’d love to give some of the professors a heart attack, that and its just plain enjoyable.


Kaz on 19th of January 2009

Tim, thanks so much for Hallelujah, it was really very special xx

Charlotte on 19th of January 2009

Hi tim was at your gig at the round house on Fri 16th Jan 09We made it all the way from Inverness in Soctland Has to be said i have a f**cking good time mate thanks and hope to see you soon.

Dav on 18th of January 2009

helloo.. the roundhouse gig on friday was something else. i think im a little wet still because of it (keep that hush eh) especially since im a stright man.
just wondering, the shirt you wore. that white piece with the black pattern on the front, where did you get it from. it was wonderfull

Sam on 18th of January 2009

Tim you are an absolute legend! i love all of your songs and of course your crazy hairstyles!

Kerry Bishop on 18th of January 2009

Tim Your Fantastic Maan! Im in Creases Of Laughter When i Watch You! Not only are you hilarious but your amazing at singing, especially when you sang hallejuah Beautiful! :D Are You Coming Back To The Fringe? You should Come To Scotland More Often :) xx

Denise Meloche on 18th of January 2009

What the fuck???? I had to question myself and then came back with so what!!

denise on 18th of January 2009

wow you woke me a little

shayne on 18th of January 2009

David on 17th of January 2009


saw your show last night at the Roundhouse. Absolutely fabulous mate!

Alan of the brilliants on 17th of January 2009

i think your amazing….musicly and in comedy. your peace anthem for palestine is all over my inner circle! do irish gigs! write back and i will be honoured! keep it up!

Hope Meadows on 17th of January 2009

I love that you have introduced us all to something completely new and with it you bring talent and vitality.
I learnt to play music as i thought it was interesting but i have always wondered what i could do with it…incorporating comedy was absoluelty amazing.
I’m wondering if there is more to this comic song writing?….if we are all going to be taken away by something big?…
And the inspiration for lyrics? Where on earth does this come from?….Content includes random rituals to unheard of conversations.
Absolutely love ‘Inflatable you’, it’s a big favourite of mine.
Congratualtions Tim on international success!

Barbara on 17th of January 2009

Hi Tim. We were at the Roundhouse yesterday evening. You gave me a bellyache, and made me cry (with laughter!)You are pure gold – thanks for lighting up a gloomy January.

Liisa Tornivaara on 17th of January 2009

I saw Tim’s show yesterday at Roundhouse. I absolutely loved it !! What a great artist, funny and witty jokes; could have listened more of his music, too. Can’t wait for his next show, that time I’ll get a table in the front. Definately.

Cat on 17th of January 2009

hey Tim, loved ya at the Roundhouse last night!

Chris on 17th of January 2009


Boston on 16th of January 2009

You should add all your comedey songs to iTunes!

Alicia K on 16th of January 2009

Hey Tim.

I’m Alicia + I’m 13

I’ve been a really big fan of yours since I saw you on the Sideshow.

You’re great at making up hilarious songs!

I really hope you can come to Brisbane soon and do a show because I would definitely be there !

Bye for now .

From Alicia xx

Wendy Barker on 16th of January 2009

Hello I saw you (Tim) on The Sideshow when you where over here in Australia and have just got to watch your DVD “Tim Minchin So Live”. It was great and even though I knew some of the songs that just made it even better. I love your voice and the way you can make me happy and cry all at once. Only the Doug Anthony Allstars could ever do that. Keep up the hard work and hope to see you live one day.

Dannie Byrne on 15th of January 2009

Eeep everytime he is on the tele i epp and just want to jump into the tele and be insatiably inflatably HIS!!!!!
OMG i have his dvd and i worship it he really is the best thing since sliced bread!!
Get a podcast so that i can sit and listen to your wonderful voice!!
Love Dannie Nottingham =]=]

Mandy Newman on 15th of January 2009

I love you! If you weren’t already married and I wasnt a lesbian I’d so do you! Thankyou for sharing your humour and talent the way you do. I particularly enjoyed “Angry (feet)” on the So Fucking Rock DVD – so true! Hope you achieve all you so richly deserve. You are a star, keep burning bright! xxx

Brianna on 15th of January 2009

Your a LeGeNd. with a big L, G and N. :D Pretty impresive hey?
You’re so F***ing rock.
I lord you. xxx

Sophia on 14th of January 2009

ahhh Tim really love the ballad “Drowned”. But Im afraid its happened – i think its safe to say u will never again be able to have a quiet poo in an alleyway :) as your getting too damn awesome! saw u on the Graham Norton show – glad to see more of u on British TV. :) I was at your ‘ready for this?’ show in Cheltenham. I was one half of the couple u spoke to (singing at a future wedding?) just wanted to say hi……. hi :)

Josh on 14th of January 2009

I idolise you Mr. Minchin you’re such a talented musician with an extraordinary vocab, you are my favourite comedian and my favourite musician at the same time… MAS (see you have changed my life)

I love your work, and im going to see you in adelaide when you come :)

ps. i learnt “Angry (feet)” to prove to my mates how much i love you :P

sirrah on 14th of January 2009

i just stumbled across this version of the song. i really like it! but i have to admit that i find your voice a bit more full (not really the right word, i hope you know what i mean) on the acoustic version. but i will listen to it some more, hopefully watch the movie some time and perhaps i find a reason why that is so. perhaps i just got the impression because the video version is a bit quiet…
love your non-comical songs! love the comic ones, too! just love everything you do!

Matthew on 13th of January 2009

I like it, aren’t you a smart one.

Do you want to come and teach me how to play piano…because I so f****** suck.


alice thwaites on 13th of January 2009

your just too good on piano :P
and my mum is off to some thing ur playin at but u hav to b over 18! so not fair, coz its the place where u hav to use the same bar and stuff, so she might meet u and i can’t go!!lol

Destiny on 13th of January 2009

oh and the other day i saw steven hawkins!!!!!! it was so strange but in a good way :D
its just so exciting i had to tell you :)
byeee x

Destiny ( Yes thats my real name :| ) on 13th of January 2009

“whos the world going to revolve around now ?”
haha, love it :)
your brilliant.
get your medium sized arse down to cambridge. Unfortunaly last time you where there the tickets where all gone. :(

G on 13th of January 2009

When are u coming back to the UK??? reallyyyyyy want to see u! x

Rosie Theinternetsadangerousplace (Its Italian) on 12th of January 2009

Wow, so you can leave a message here.

See unfortunatly now that Ive started this whole typing business I’m going to have to think of something to say to you, preferably something deep in the hope that you, old Timmy boy (wow, Ive never even called you that in my head before) if you should ever read this, will be overcome with a sense of wonder and will think to yourself in a brooding sort of fashion, “Now thats deep”…

So, here is my thought, my wonder of wonders; If you type 1 in predictive text after an I, you can follow it immediatly with an m without having to change the punctuation in between!


Not even a smidgen of wonder?

Oh well then, I’ll piss off shall I?

Fozzie Bear on 12th of January 2009

No one has replied to my mail about getting “Sit”.
The forum is temporarily down.
You haven’t planned on coming to Leeds yet.
And I haven’t got round to ordering your CD’s yet :(

I hope you use some form of scientific miracle to brighten up my day soon!

Fozzie x x x

lauren on 12th of January 2009

hiya i missed your tour in the uk when will you be back in glasgow? i really want to see you

Melodie on 12th of January 2009

You are an outstanding performer-you have the rare gift of being able to combine a sharp comic talent with beautiful melodies. I look forward to you producing a ‘serious’ album.
In the meantime I will just have to make do with what you have given us so far. You have brightened up my life.

Mick Kennedy on 12th of January 2009

Hey Tim,
Just wondering if you’ll be heading towards Belfast or anywhere in Ireland this year?
Micky3fingers :-)

John on 11th of January 2009

I discovered you on myspace, and strangely you’ve filled the void left in my soul since the passing of george carlin. the approach may be a bit different, but I completely love how you’re willing to say what you feel needs to be said and touch on deeper issues but keep people laughing. Rock on and hopefully swing by denver sometime!

Laura C on 11th of January 2009

Aw, isn’t Benjie’s comment nice… x

Stephen lough on 11th of January 2009

Alright, how ya doing m8 .. am a big fan ov ur work (well since just before christmas but you know wat a mean) nd the whole piano thing is pretty fresh. Im from newcastle, England and was hoping you could squeeze in a few gigs up nd around that area if yav got any time like. Anyway, a was just wondering where did you buy your coat from? The one you were wearing on ur So Fucking Rock DVD. Or just the specific style of it because i have had a look about and cant even find a similar one for love nor money. Aye as i say if you have got time to reply it would be much appreciated. Cheers

Thinwhiteduke11 on 11th of January 2009

It’s so beautiful. Obviously the work of a beautiful soul! Thank you Tim x from your ever faithful fan x

Benjie on 11th of January 2009

“So Fucking Rock”; The fastest way to rise to the top of a first-time-viewers’ personal ‘favourite comedian’ list.

-Friday: Loads of mates sit down to watch ‘a new ginger australian comedian’ DVD… slightly pessimistic, mutters of “that’s like Lee Evans” at the very start, ten minutes in warmed up in the same slow way as the live audience, and by the end only tieing with Dylan Moran as that most amazing favourite comedian due to there really being no way of comparing the two styles of comedy.
-Saturday: Buy the DVD myself, copy to ipod.
-Sunday: Check for nearest next live show; next friday, Roundhouse… full.

Speedy rise to fame you want? You’ll most definitely get it :)

Hope to see you live this side of the hemisphere soon!
Congratulations, and shred the complaints!

Jenni on 11th of January 2009

Dear Tim
Can you sing at my wedding? OK, I lie. There is no wedding. But I love YOU. And if you just wanted to sing for me (and my civil partner coz I’m already “married”) in the Midlands because you are just a philanthropic kinda guy….(which you are) then you are welcome any time. Mi casa su casa – and all that kinda stuff.

And we’re going to win back the Ashes in 2009. Please tell me you actually care (even just a little bit?)!

Love from

Joe Fitzgerald on 11th of January 2009

hey tim
your music is so amazing… i love the funny stuff, i really think you are amazing at the piano. the serious stuff is so awsome and my favorite song is not perfect :)

that song is the song i live by the lines i spent so much time hating it but it never said a bad word about me got to me cause thats how i felt and still do feel… you made me feel good about my self and i wanted to say thanks tim :)

also i wanted to know if you have any plans of a tour in england anytime soon cause i would love to see you live :)

thanks for being amazing tim… i wish i could play like you :)


Gustavo H. Gonzalez on 10th of January 2009

I”m a big fan, based in Washington, D.C. I’m a bit disappointed that you have no tour dates on this side of the pond anytime soon. Will that change? Do you plan on playing anywhere near D.C. anytime soon. I’m willing to travel, but I don’t know if I can go all the way to Australia, especially as I am a law school student. Just don’t know if I have that kind of time.



S. on 10th of January 2009

This song is laverly (:
the harmony in the chorus is brilliant, and seems to be stuck in my head quite alot which is good (:
i would lovee you come and see you live, but i have no money :(
as soon as i do im sooo going to come stalk you :D
your ok with that aren’t you ?
thaught so XD.

Daniel on 10th of January 2009

I really wish I could come up with some profound, deep, original comment that shows how much I love your work, but I can`t so I guess I`ll have to stick with just spreading the word about you and hope that`s enough instead =D

Mel Pollard on 10th of January 2009

What a completely gorgeous song x

Michael Ritchie on 10th of January 2009

Hey Tim.

You are my hero!!!!!! Your work in incredible!!! When ever i have had a bad day i love nothing more than listening to your music and escaping from lifes problems. It always puts a smile on my face.

I just bought your so fucking rock DVD… it was hilarious!!!!! Me and my mates cried with laughter when we watched it.

You are a legend!!!! Hope you tour Scotland at some point.

I shall repeat again incase i didn’t make myself clear… you are my hero.

Take care :)

Catherine Mooney on 10th of January 2009

Just watched your DVD and my son and I have been absolutely blown away by it. I can’t ever remember watching a comedy DVD and getting to the end and wanting to watch it all over again. I love your music, your lyrics, everything… You are inspiring. Thank you for doing what you do.

Jon on 10th of January 2009

Love your stuff, I’ve been telling everyone I know about your songs!


Charley Night on 9th of January 2009

Love your stuff, it is brilliant! To quote the words of one of my very wise colleagues – you are ‘fucking great mate!’

Dawn Rodgers on 9th of January 2009

I’ve just bought your DVD and pissed myself laughing. Angrey (feet) was so funny that I hurt myself and then went back and watched it again and hurt myself again. I must be a masochist. Anyway, please tour West Yorkshire in 2009. I have told my friend (she and I have environmental jobs) about ‘Canvas Bags’ and I want her to make it the offical anthem of a village near where we live that is aiming to be plastic bag free. We have a campaign about it later in 2009. I have been humming the song all day…

Laura C on 9th of January 2009

Is it wrong, that yesterday, on my 35th birthday, I asked the Australian guy that I work with at a primary school in Bedford, if I could stay with his family for a few days so I could see Tim live is Australia?? I mean, I did snog him at the Christmas party – so technically he does owe me!!
He did offer to get his mum to get me the ‘Tim’ canvas bag!! But as I keep explaining to all my friends, I NEED to see Tim again as I have never ever laughed so much in my life!!

Kat on 8th of January 2009

I think I have a crush on you!

Peterr May on 8th of January 2009

Faye Clark on 8th of January 2009

Hello, I was just wondering whether the band you’re playing with is infact your old band; as clever The Humble SHIFT8 of Angryfeet spotted a guy who looks as if he was on your album cover. And now that I’ve had a quick look, the guitarist looks identical too. Faye xxxxxxx p.s. only 8 days now!

Katelyn Hill on 8th of January 2009

I was lucky enough to get your So Live dvd for a Christmas present. It’s my favourite present. The neighbours think I am insane I was laughing so much I’m sure. Love your work and looking forward to the tour.

stuart deacon on 8th of January 2009

will tim b doing a tour in the uk any time soon?

samantha on 8th of January 2009

i love your work and so do most of my friend, and even though this probably wont happen i need to say “COME TO AMERICA”

olgg on 7th of January 2009

I actually cried, while listening to it ._. You’ve made me cry, mister Minchin!!!

Beth and Lauren on 7th of January 2009

Your quite funny…. <3 Bears dont dig on dancing <3 we saw you on graham nortan

mishibishi cult is fucking genius

Maeve (ranga) on 7th of January 2009

he, he, he

=:-D (-:E

Yeah hi, I’m Tegan… her ( previous writing ) friend
Yes, I put up with her :)
I go camping with her and I come back of the same mentality as I left!
Yeah.. You’re cool.

lehua on 6th of January 2009

I have been listening to little more than this song (Drowned) for three days, since I found it. You’re such a talented man, and your voice is so strong and clear, so powerful. It’s beautiful. Of course the accent doesn’t hurt. Did you take singing lessons?

I’m a singer, but only very amateurish. I’m a teacher by profession. An artist by avocation. The whole family sings extremely well, and most play some musical instrument or other. Sing for the church, play for ourselves. Sing for ourselves as well actually, every time we get together. It’s the family harmony thing. It’s really very nice. Today though, my voice is rubbish. I think I’m getting a chest cold. Colds invariably go to my chest and take months to get rid of fully. More than you ever wanted to know and much more than I meant to say here. This was just to tell you how wonderful I think you are, and how your music moves me, silly lyrics aside. You have so much talent! You’re amazing. I don’t know anyone who can play a piano like you. I tell everyone I can about you. Your loyal fan, l

Lisa Tyrer on 6th of January 2009

Saw you on the Secret Policeman’s Ball and loved you. Bought your DVD, watched it and loved you even more…..!!!!
You’re officially our new best friend, and you’re welcome to come and play out with us anytime.

Proud to be giggling c**ts,

Lisa and Paul xxxxxxxxx

Kevin Scoles on 6th of January 2009

Dear Mr Minchin, after hearing your music on Graham Norton I have gone to the great extravagance of purchasing your CD. This is despite the fact that you are Australian and strangely dressed.

Here are some song lyrics you can steal and meld into a musical masterpiece

Just because I am Australian, doesn’t make me a sort of alien,
It just makes me smelly and sometimes lewd,
I’m more popular at parties than an Iranian
But then ,random Iranians are difficult to find; and less rude.

We are often lumped in with South Africans
Because our tonal qualties can be misconstrude.
But if you want an arrogant, self satisfied people repellent
Then spend your rent on an Austrralian girl; and a South African dude.

People in the Uk are schizophrenic
With their (can’t think of the word) national talent.
You welcome everyone in then wish they would go.
You all want to be like us
But think we should be quiet on the bus.

La la la etc etc

Jack on 6th of January 2009

Your a god dam legend!

Madeline VanDerMast on 6th of January 2009

Hey Tim,
Your song “Not Perfect” is just beautiful and inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing it with the world. I look forward to seeing you in Sydney this April!
Love from

Brett Lewis on 5th of January 2009

Legend. Absolute Genius!

Oh my – your song Drowned made me cry! How I adore it. After all the shit I went through in 08, how you brought light into my world!! I have to see that movie!! I just gave up fighting myself! Was East Area Kick Boxing Grand Champion in 2007 but a dodgy heart and a screwed up knee forced me to stop! Boo! I was heartbroken! My fighting name was Lionheart! I fell in love with my coach – but he messed about and pretty much destroyed me! Arsehole!! Things got even worse and then you made me smile and all is fabulous again!! I have the best kids in the world and I live with my best friend and our 4 kids and we sing Canvas Bag in Tesco!! I may not be a fighter anymore but I’m discovering there is more to life! Thank you for your fabulous self! Admittedly I have sat watching you on You Tube for some time today and I do play your songs over and over – but fuck it, I love it and it makes me smile :-) I caught you singing Hallelujah today – I kinda liked it!!! Anyhoo, Drowned is great!! Well done you! When is the movie available in the UK??? PS – love the headband!!!!! Lovely bubbly day xx

Isabelle Sellick on 5th of January 2009

can you marry my friend, shes cool
you’re like a ginger russel brand (but better)
love you and your hair

Eilish on 5th of January 2009

Wow, look at your video clip! I bet you feel all pro and marketable now. Tim, it’s lovely – please don’t ever stop creating such beautiful work!

Claudette Sutherland on 5th of January 2009

Okay. Just found you while sitting in my LA home. Saw you o Graham Norton and have introduced you to every single friend who is still dealing with me. We are all pissed off that you don’t have a tour here. What gives??? Anything I can do, short of taking out billboard ads???

Niki on 5th of January 2009

First heard ‘Drowned’ at the Union Chapel – thought it was beautiful then and I am thrilled I can listen to it as often as I like now. Any idea when we might be able to see ‘Two fists’ in the UK?

Jess on 4th of January 2009

I heard this on the myspace page a little way back, bought on iTunes today!!
I love this song Tim! And White Wine in the Sun.
The film comes out one month after I go back to Perth for a holiday, typical! :P As does your tour, ah well, you’ll just have to come back to Edinburgh! Sooner, rather than later. ;)

This is such a magic song.


Kirstie on 4th of January 2009

Wow! I watched the trailer and the music videos. It looks really good!! Will it be coming to England at all? I hope it does…

Love the song, too, although to be honest I still prefer the funny ones.


Chantal on 4th of January 2009

I frikkin’ love this song :D.
You, my friend, are a musical genious.

Too bad I haven’t got a creditcard, so I can’t download via iTunes.
Oh well, I’ll just have to replay the video over and over again :P.
I could download the video and convert it myself*, but that would just make me a meanie. Don’t want to be a meanie, that would make me mean.

Right, I’m off to use up my bandwith listening to your song :).
I’ll definately watch your film when it comes out, if I can find it.

Brodie Towns on 4th of January 2009

Very very cool Tim,
Amazing song writer whether funny or not,
Great Work! :-D

Anna on 4th of January 2009

Regarding the UK DVD So F*ckin Rock

Would someone please tap Tim on the shoulder and politely explain to him that the word “broker” is derived from the French “brocour” (n. Agent or witness of a transaction) and has no etymological relationship with the English verb “break”. I wish it were otherwise because the nicely understated gag deserved to work.

Don’t let that deter anyone from mocking stock brokers though; the “Mitsubishi Colt” beat-poem was fabulous.

And, I have to say, the show was inspired and delicious and stupendous in many different and surprising ways.

Callum Christie on 4th of January 2009

Bought the dvd with no knowledge of what it would be like and fuckin loved every minute of it.

Horse - Hannah on 3rd of January 2009

That’s a great clip for the song. Particularly the end bit. Wow.

I’ve gotta tell ya, Tim, I never imagined that song so… rock. The final chorus is epic. I love it.

Lisa on 3rd of January 2009

Love it!!!!!
Downloaded it just now. Thanks.
Will definitely have to see that film.

Amy on 3rd of January 2009

Ah mazing song. I actually love it.
Can’t stop playing it.
I got “so f**ing Rock” dvd for Christmas too.
I’m a happy girl now. Thanks Tim.
Keep those songs coming, comedy or not!

Lottie O'Brien on 3rd of January 2009

Mr. Minchin … oh how to begin. I absolutely love your work, which seems to just get better and better, you never fail to amaze! I am coming to see you in March in Auckland and cannot wait; it will be the first time I have been to one of your live shows. I can’t wait to see what new “stuff” you have come up with but hope that we will get to hear some of the classics. I have watched ‘So fucking rock’ so many times that I am sure the DVD is on the brink of wearing out! You must come to Jersey some time, (Channel Islands Jersey not American New Jersey) and spread the Minchin Message.

Keep up the good work.
Much love to you.
xx (Jersey’s number one Tim Minchin fan!) xx

Emma on 3rd of January 2009

I have been listening to this song for a while now and I love it. All the brilliance I have come to expect from your lyrics but so moving and now I can see you singing it in the video. Wicked!. Is the movie out to buy yet? Can’t wait to get my hands on some of your acting work.

Qwerty102 on 3rd of January 2009

You’re right! How very convenient. Next stop i-tunes. Its a lovely song.

Mandy Billings on 3rd of January 2009

Wow.What a beautiful version Tim. I can’t stop singing it. Do you feature in the film too?

Melissa on 3rd of January 2009

This song is so beautful.
And it says so much to me at the moment, its like you read my mind
Thank You.

Michelle on 3rd of January 2009

Wow Tim, and I thought the other version was good. Really beautiful! And snazzy video you’ve got there, you musical devil.

Behind all the satire, bohemian coats and strange yellow and purple trainers (yes, STRANGE) is a romantic… person. Lovely.


Melissa15678 on 3rd of January 2009

It is beautiful. I love both the Acoustic version and this version. It has been bought and played from iTunes.


Jas on 3rd of January 2009

I love this song :)

Jenny on 3rd of January 2009

“Drowned” sounds/looks awesome darling. Our rock n roll nerd did good :D

Dressed in Black (again) on 3rd of January 2009

I gritted my teeth and fought with iTunes for the first time ever just so I could own this ‘filled out’ version of Drowned. After several failed attempts, involving wrong email addresses and passwords I finally managed to download Drowned. I hope you are proud of me, I’m rather proud of myself. :D

Signed, a computer unsavvy Tim fan.

Elena on 3rd of January 2009

Beautiful Song, as ever, Tim

Lorna on 3rd of January 2009

awwhh its such an amazing song. ♥ ♥
I really hope we in the uk are able to see the whole film. It’d be a shame to miss just cos we live in the wrong hemisphere.

Faye Clark on 3rd of January 2009

:) Hey. I love this version because it’s really powerful and brilliantly chosen and developed for the film, although I still can’t let go of the acoustic which has the power to make me cry!
Well done on your fab not-so-comic side :)
Faye xxxxxxxx

L-A on 3rd of January 2009
