Most homes rely heavily on gas for providing heating in the winter and enabling us to cook our meals all year round. When something goes wrong with a gas appliance or even the gas supply, we notice immediately! Bearing this in mind, let’s dedicate some songs to gas, the wonderful substance we can’t live without!
Life’s A Gas – Joey Ramone
From gas cookers to fireplaces and central heating systems – life really is gas! It would be a cold and miserable experience to live without our central heating and ability to cook. Imagine living with a coat on and surviving on microwave meals or pot noodles! No thanks. At the first sign of trouble with your gas appliances, seek help from a professional.

Gas Panic! – Oasis
Would you know what to do or who to call in a gas emergency? Make sure you have this information easily accessible in the rare case you might need to call your supplier in an emergency.
Price of Gas – Bloc Party
Yes the price of gas is rising, so homeowners will want to do all they can to reduce costs and conserve energy. Consider updating an old, inefficient boiler and making sure your property is fully insulated. Draught proofing and turning down the thermostat are also simple ways to save some money.
Out of Gas – Modest Mouse
It has been said that if we carry on consuming gas at the current rate, we will run out of natural gas by 2060. Let’s hope in the meantime we can learn new ways to conserve natural gas and focus on more sustainable and renewable forms of energy for our increasing power demands.
Gas Into Fire – What would you say? – Dave Matthews Band
There is nothing as cosy as warming up in front of the fireplace on a cold winter’s night. If you’re a landlord, make sure your tenant’s gas appliances are annually checked by a gas safe registered engineer. It’s a legal requirement!
A Pain In The Gas – Billy Ray Cyrus
Boiler problems are never fun, especially when they leave you in the cold. If your boiler is making strange noises, like a boiling kettle, for example, it’s time to call for an engineer. Any other unusual bangs, clangs or thuds then you might have a loose or broken component that needs repairing or replacing. Don’t let problems fester. Instead get them checked out as soon as they occur.
Before Gas And TV – Mark Knopfler
What was life like before we had such luxuries like gas central heating and televisions? Well, our ancestors used thick materials to wear, wood burning stoves and furnaces, coal fires and hot stone bed pans. They slept together for warmth and might even have slept with their animals! Our ancient ancestors used fur skins and log fires to cook and stay warm. We are seriously spoiled today with how easy it is to stay toasty and well fed with our gas appliances!
