‘That’s Lux-on’: National Party leader Chris Luxon gives his thoughts on some George tunes

From Rudimental to Flume, some big calls were made.

Chris Luxon joined the George Breakfast to rate some big tunes and he made some big calls. 

We called the game ‘Lux-on, Lux-off’ (good right?) and gave Luxon three tunes to rate. 

First up, Rudimental’s brand new tune ‘Break My Heart’. The National Party leader only needed a couple of seconds before letting us know he feels about the track. 

“I love Rudimental, that’s Lux-on,” he said. 

Flume’s newly released (he actually made it in 2014) ‘Slugger 1.4’ was the next song that ol’ Chrissy boy judged. 

“Uh, Lux-off,” he said, straight-faced. After Tammy told him “it’s Flume!”, Chris let us know that the trans-Tasman rivalry may have influenced his decision, saying: “I’m no Australian.”

Gaarn Chris. 

The third and final tune is a controversial one. David Guetta’s remix of Eiffel 65’s ‘Blue’. Earlier this year we played it for you listeners in a game of ‘Rark it or Cark it’ and all three callers haaated it. 

Luxon though, reckons it is a jam. 

“Ooh that’s Lux-on,” he said. Tammy was absolutely gobsmacked by Chris’ decision. 

“Nooo, nooo Chris! Oh mate,” he screamed. General Lee was stoked though, seeing as he loves the tune. 

I say we skip the next election and just have Jacinda (well-known deck maestro and former RNV performer) go up against Chris in an aux-off for the ages. Whoever plays the best tunes gets to become the next Prime Minister. Why not?
