Here is a list of what I think are the seven best songs by Richard Cheese.

Do you like rock music? Do you like rap music? Do you like metal music? Do you like hip hop music? If you have answered YES to any or all of those questions then you might just be in for a pleasant surprise, but only if you also like ‘Lounge’ Music’!

Say what now? Lounge music? What’s that when it’s at home then?

Lounge music is reminiscent of a bygone era. Think of a band, dressed in tuxedos, playing at a club to an audience sitted at tables sipping on cocktails. Drums, Piano, Double Bass and Vocalist – nothing more, nothing less. Think of Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin and you get the idea.

So where does the mention of rock, rap, metal and hip hop come in to then? Well, ladies and gentleman, it is my great pleasure to introduce you to the legend that is Richard Cheese.

Richard Cheese is the lead singer of a band called Lounge Against The Machine who perform Lounge music version of famous rock, rap, metal or hip hop songs. The rest of the band consists of Bobby Ricotta (Piano), Frank Feta (Drums) and Billy Bleu (Bass). If it all sounds a bit cheesy then that’s the point!
