This week’s Sunday Lunch sees musical couple Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp delivering a hearty cover of My Favourite Game by Swedish alt-rock band The Cardigans.

In typical Sunday Lunch fashion, the video features Willcox singing to the song’s first two verses and chorus as Fripp strums to its signature riff.
“The Lipsticks out and the duo cover an anthem from the Cardigans!!” reads the video caption.
Check out the performance below.
Written by The Cardigan guitarist Peter Svensson and lead singer Nina Persson, My Favourite Game was released in 1998 and found minor international success, reaching number three in Sweden and number 14 in the UK.
The song’s music video, starring Persson herself, caused much controversy when it was first released due to its depiction of car crashes and reckless driving. Many European channels, such as MTV UK, only played an edited version of the video where all the imagery of car crashes and reckless driving were removed to meet broadcast standards.
For those who can’t get enough of the pair’s kitchen shenanigans, Fripp and Toyah have confirmed that they will be taking Sunday Lunch on the road next year. Joined by Willcox’s Posh Pop Band, the Sunday Lunch Rock Party 2023 UK tour promises “the legendary artistic twists that both Robert and Toyah are renowned for.”
