10 HILARIOUS REASONS WHY YOU NEED ABZ LOVE’S NEW SINGLE ‘COCKADOODLEDOO’ IN YOUR LIFE…🎤🐔

I’m guessing that you, like everybody, have cleaned out your coffers this Christmas and now you’ve got the January ‘back to work blues’…So why should you buy Abz Love’s new single ‘Cockadoodledoo’ we hear you ponder??

Well ponder no more…Here are the top 10 hilarious reasons you (and everyone that you know) should purchase ‘Cockadoodledoo’ this January…

1.) Out of pity – Perhaps you watched Abz’ futile attempts at farming on Abzonthefarm and you want to help him bring his farming dream to life? ☔☁🐔🐺🐛🍃🌷 (Watch the christmas special of COUNTRY STRIFE : Abz on the farm here )

2.) Make a political statement – with lyrics like “hens are friends not just chicken nuggets” ‘Cockadoodledoo’ could almost be a vegan protest anthem??? So if you prefer your chickens alive buy this track. 🍴

3.) It’s 79p – And for 2:44 minutes of brilliant wackiness that’s just good financial sense. 😂🎉😂🎉

4.) It’s a great wake up alarm – With it’s authentic cockerel sounds ‘Cockadoodledoo’ brings a bit of farmyard fun into your life each morning. So make like a farmer and wake up the old fashioned way. With a cock. 🔔🐔

5.) Watch your cockerel MIME – Sounds unbelievable but this weird phenomena is 100% TRUE. As we discovered when we played the track back for the first time, cockerels cannot resist miming along with the crows in the song. So if you, like Abz, have a cockerel of your own…Then enjoy hours of fun & laughter watching them mime along with the song. Try it, it REALLY works! 🐔

6.) Bring back 90’s pop – I think we can all agree that most modern pop music is bordering on soft pornography these days. But despair no longer because ‘Cockadoodledoo’ has been called a lot of things but ‘sexual’ is definitely not amongst them. So if you miss the innocent & fun pop songs of yesteryear buy ‘cockadoodledoo‘ and help Abz and Vicky continue making fun, farm themed, family friendly music for the charts! 📀📻

7.) It’d make a fabulously inappropriate ringtone – Enjoy the puzzled expressions of your fellow commuters as they try to work out why there’s a chicken on the train. 📱📣

8.) Cover/Remix it – If you’re creative, why not make a fun remix of the weirdest pop song ever and put it on youtube for all your friends to enjoy. 🎤💽

9.) If you buy this song your life will be better – Ok so this isn’t true at all. However by buying this single you are supporting a truly grass roots project because when it comes to ‘cockadoodledoo’ Abz and Vicky did everything themselves. From the writing to the vocals,to production, mixing and mastering, to producing/editing the music video and promotion…They even hand-painted the single’s comedy artwork! (Complete with a cock eyed Abz) So support your local/small business music ‘farmers’ by buying ‘cockadoodledoo’. 📝🎤💽🎥🎬💻🔊📠

10.) 10 is the magic number – The numbers of the songs running time (4:22) add up to 8, which is close to 10, and 10 is a pretty cool number. 1⃣0⃣ (According to numerology number 10 can bring peace and harmony to all. So perhaps cockadoodledoo will save the world? #justsayin)

So there you have it. 10 hilarious reasons you need cockadoodledoo in your life…You’re welcome. 😜

Abz Love is best known for selling over 20 million records with Simon cowells 90’s boyband 5ive, reuniting for ITV’s the BIG REUNION and coming runner up in Celebrity Big brother 12.

And then in 2015 the BBC sent a documentary crew to film us for our own 3 part BBC 2 series COUNTRY STRIFE : Abz on the farm. The show followed us as we made the not so seamless transition from urban life to running a smallholding in rural wales.

Many people tell fibs about their financial status out of fear of what people will think, but we decided to shun pride and convention by admitting that money was tight for us. We were hoping that we could earn a living from our new lifestyle but unsurprisingly our ‘farming empire’ was plagued by disaster and didn’t quite get off to the flying start we were expecting.

So in September 2015 Abz announced live on the wright stuff that he would be selling his brit award on eBay to fund a delivery of top soil and some gardening tools. And thanks to his rather comical listing description which included comments like “has been used as a door stop” and “has been held by Jason Statham though I can not prove this” the story went around the world and thousands of fans flooded to eBay to send messages of support and bid on the award.

Over the following days news of the auction hit africa, australia and even india and bids on the Abzonthefarm eBay account reached £1,000,000!!!! We were egg – static! (sorry) The story became so big it was featured in the BBC christmas special of Country strife : Abz on the christmas farm

But we were quite literally ‘counting our chickens’ too soon because eBay deleted the auction before bidding ended leaving the trophy unsold.

Needless to say Abz still needs gardening tools and top soil. (Not to mention corn for his growing brood of ornamental poultry.) So the UK’s favourite farmer/rapper has come up with a novel way of raising cash for his farm project….He’s back with a self penned fun, farm themed pop track called ‘Cockadoodledoo’!!!

Abz says “I’d describe Cockadoodledoo as a cross between soulja boy ‘crank that’ and ‘old mcdonald had a farm.’ All proceeds will go towards running and expanding our farm, starting with topsoil, gardening tools and some corn for me chickens.”

If you want to support Abz and our farm project please buy the track (available at all good digital stores from January 4th) and you can view the hilarious music video for ‘Cockadoodledoo’ below (please share far and wide!!) Abz has released this himself without any record company involvement, so 100% of the net proceeds from the singles sales will go to our farm project.

COCKADOODLEDOO – Abz Love ft Vicky Fallon

Critics are calling the song “A feathery masterpiece” and “simply EGGScellent”

SURFS UP – A life without wifi

Ok, so the #internet didn’t exist when we were growing up, but I remember it being introduced in my mid to late teens and it blew my mind…(Abz’ mind was already pretty much blown by then but it probably blew it some more..)

At that time, being so new, there was no where near the vast amount of information or entertainment #online because people hadn’t added it yet. But still, using messenger to instant message ‘friends’ all over the world was thrilling…(Those were the days when getting a high score in #snake was the epitome of cool.)

As the years passed the internet, and it’s popularity, grew rapidly. And with the introduction of social media sites like #Myspace, #Facebook and more recently #Twitter people began to live their social lives increasingly online.

Now don’t get me wrong, #email has fantastic advantages in #sharing information and #socialmedia is a great promotional tool not to mention a cheap and easy way of staying in touch with friends and family. I just worry that it might be making us a bit lazy in the real world.

At our last house we had infinity broadband (superfast wifi) and it dominated our lives. I’d completely forgotten how to entertain myself without the ‘World Wide Web’ (that’s what it stands for) and once logged on I found myself stuck like a fly in it’s technolgical web, wasting hours on twitter and watching YouTube videos of baby goats wearing pyjamas. (Which is actually very cute)

So like any good addict I called BT the minute we had our move date, keen to ensure a seamless transition of service to our new rural property. But despite calling weeks in advance, our rural location had a ‘shortage of engineers in our area’ and meant we were in for a bit of a wait…

The day after we moved in it also became clear that there was no mobile service anywhere on our property. The first place we got a weak signal was half a mile down the pot hole riddled entrance track. And once there, our phones would begin to vibrate and beep into life! We soon realised that the picturesque fir-tree covered mountains all around us that we loved so much were acting as a sort of frequency blanket and blocking all chance of us getting a signal of anything. And it wasn’t just wifi or phone service, we couldn’t even get a tv reception!

So 1 week into our new life our wifi engineer had still not shown up and we were starting to get cabin fever. And when he finally arrived a WEEK later the news was not good.

“you’ve got no chance of getting broadband here love…haha…not even dial up! He chuckled as he informed me in a thick welsh accent…”You’re just too far from the exchange.” I’m not a violent person, but for just a second I wanted to slap him.

We hadn’t planned for this, what would this mean for our work and social life? I wasn’t even sure what i was afraid of, but i was. I was flipping terrified.

And then a strange thing happened. Once we weren’t waiting for wifi to be installed we started living our lives normally for the first time in years. I rediscovered my passion for reading, all those gardening and self sufficiency books I’d bought a year ago and never gotten round to reading were coming in handy now i wasn’t distracted, and I was finishing one every few days. Abz & I were playing boardgames like scrabble and talking. And I noticed almost immediately that I was getting so much more done around the house and farm without the constant distraction of texts, emails and tweets pulling our focus into the oh so sticky world wide web..

The quiet became nice, soothing even.

And ok, I’ll admit there are challenges to living without wifi, there were times when we needed to google something like “how to remove a tick” or “ how to grow pineapples”. But if it’s something really urgent we call someone with wifi.

As the weeks and months passed we slowly discovered more spots in our area where we could get a wifi signal and a nearby mountain with 4 bars 3G became the go to site for our ‘mobile office’, the car. Obviously we still have work and social things we need to do that require ‘logging on’. Which means sitting in a chilly car up the mountain for hours on end every few days. But still, it is nice to keep the house a wifi free zone…

So were one year into this experiment now, and on the whole we’ve gotten on really well without wifi, which has come as a genuine suprise to us both.

So when the option of satellite wifi came up we pondered whether – if we had a spare £500 – would we have it installed? And we’d never say never, but for now were enjoying the clarity, productivity and peace that come with a life without wifi.

How do you feel about wifi, and the dominance it has in your life? Could you live with out it? Please feel free to comment below & we’ll do our best to respond 🙂

Happy New year!!!
