But either way, that's not the point - wear shades where you like, that's the point! Inside, outside, underwater, in space… there is no doin' it wrong!

It wasn't a big deal. Fans just got excited to see Nicky trending. Then Nicky got excited and milked it.

The Twitterati moved on before you could say, 'To be fair, it's a Sunday morning and David Mellor is trending above Nicky'. But you can bet Nicky will write a fucking song about it at some point.

Incredibly, Mystic Nicky predicted 'Shadesgate' would happen in the lyrics of 'Let's Go To War':

The views they will now darken
The knives they will now sharpen

I've written a Nicky b-side lyric, keeping it as authentic as possible so I can sue when the time comes.

Wearing Shades Inside (On A Sunday Morning Cookery Programme)

V1
Wearing shades inside
On a Sunday morning cookery programme
To show how rock n roll I am
Rock n roll I am

The lights they shine in my eyes
Something I've learned to despise
But I still love the smell of Simon's pies
Of Simon's pies

The lights they shine in my eyes
Something I've learned to despise
But I still love the smell of Simon's pies
Of Simon pies

Something I can never escape
In my continued desire to mass communicate

The one copy available at the downtown HMV (near where I work) was gone by lunch. Ah well, Amazon will be sending the deluxe edition to me.
