Sing along: "I'm a journalist"

How many songs can you think of that mention the noble craft of journalism?

Band The Lovely Eggs have a song on MySpace called 'I'm a journalist', which guarantees that a certain proportion of the population will give it a listen.

This remined of Paste Magazine's list of 10 songs about print journalism, which includes the Jam's 'News of the World', and the Billy Bragg song 'It says here'.

Any more journalism songs for the list?

The Lovely Eggs song also includes the line: "I'm a journalist, up yours". That gives me an excuse to mention X-Ray Spex and 'Oh, bondage, up yours'. All together now...
