I had intended, as I started to do the next Real Deal post, to be somewhat more introverted - but today has been a good one so lets keep happy for the moment and stick with the '80's!
As you are aware one of my best friends was Freddy (to whom in part diablog is dedicated) and he and I used to tour car race meetings all over Europe to the strains of Kid Creole and the Coconuts of whose this was his absolute and all time favourite (was it the middle Coconut Kid was married to?)....
... from the soundtrack of the movie 'Against All Odds'. Astonishingly, as you have found with the link above, they are still around. I haven't heard of them for years, but lets hope I can catch up sometime.
However, this was not one of their biggest hits which include ...
... Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy
and the monster hit which without fail still gets parties going if all else fails - even Engine Room has been known to crack a smile if he hears it - Stool Pigeon. And well he might as the lyrics refer to him - 'he's an old ex con whose been away....'!
Oh the bling and glitz - bring it back, love it! Really great stuff with always at least one on the Glynsky juke. Well worth remembering.
Yours, diablog, boppin' around
