MONTE VIDEO - SHOOP SHOOP DIDDYWOP CUMMA CUMMA WANG DANG (lost hit)

Hello and welcome back....... New Zealand band "Monte Video & the Cassettes" released this strange song in 1983. Must say, Without watching the video, I have no idea what this song is about, also I could have sworn the singer was from the UK because of the English accent, seems I was wrong.
To try and make sense of this song you need to know what things mean =

  • Shoop Shoop—singing and dancing at a distance
  • Diddy Wop—drinking together
  • Cumma Cumma—dancing together, with some touching...
  • Wang Dang—close dancing 
  •  
    MONTE VIDEO - SHOOP SHOOP DIDDY WOP CUMMA CUMMA WANG DANG (things are not as it seems)



The Lyrics in case you need them =

Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang

Well the Shoop Shoop stands for the mood you're in
And the Diddy Wop mean let the fun begin
It's a feeling gonna set your senses reeling and you can't sit still
Cumma Cumma mean what you thought, that's right
And the Wang Dang gonna get you through the night time
Baby there's a right time if you wanna lose control

Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang

Shoop Shoop - li'll party, nothing formal
Diddy Wop - she's in the corner, looked quite normal
The Cumma Cumma, empty glass, bold as brass, pinch me, hang about
Wang Dang

Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
She said Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang

Well the Shoop Shoop stood for her mood alright
And her Diddy Wop gave me a nasty fright
Sought of feeling that-a sent me senses reeling and you can't sit still
Cumma Cumma meant what I thought, touche
And the Wang Dang, err, anyway, nearly died, mortified, nearly lost control

Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang Dang
Shoop Shoop Diddy Wop Cumma Cumma Wang

Hello and welcome back...... Belinda Carlisle is Back and looking stunning....Another 80s Icon making a comeback and listening to her new song "Sun" it going to be a brilliant, with awesome melodies and sporting an infectious beat.... Its one killer track.

One word..... Stunning







From Belinda's website = http://www.belindacarlisle.tv/

Hi everyone:
I’m so happy to announce today that my new dance single, “Sun”, which is my first pop release here in the U.S. in over 15 years, will be released on March 19th!

When I first heard “Sun”, I immediately knew I had to record it. It’s the best song I’ve recorded since “Heaven Is A Place on Earth”, and I’m really excited for everyone to hear it!

The song will be available for download as a single on iTunes, as well as part of the brand new “Belinda Carlisle – ICON” album which will be released online and in stores by Universal Music on the same day, which will include my top solo hits from over the last 27 years!

I’m so grateful for all the support my fans have given me so far, and I can’t wait to kick off this new adventure! Will keep you updated as we get closer to the release.

For now, thanks for the support, and let’s get the news out there!
Love,
Belinda xx

ULTRAVOX - LIE (From The Album - Brilliant)

Hello and welcome back...... From the album "Brilliant" (Released in 2012...How did I miss that?), comes the song "Lie", possibly the best song on the album, a stunning sound that is pure Ultravox, Its a song you can listen to over & over.
Another song that caught my attention was "Brilliant" the title track to this album.
If you get the chance to buy this album, do so..... Sadly just about every review I have read about the album "Brilliant" has not been very inspiring, I must admit, the middle of the album seems to aim for that "Vienna" sound, kinda sounding a bit morbid but just when you thought... "this album is crap", song 10 "Lie" smacks you in the face with its tasty goodness, and says I'm not finished yet, I mean...com on, its been 20 -30 years since their last album, give them a break....so for me, its worth the money....Its great to see another 80s electronic band making a comeback, even if it was a year ago.
Cheers


LIE


BRILLIANT

MATT MOFFITT - MATT FINISH

Hello and welcome back....... Some times you hear a song and instantly love the sound, that how it is with this song by "Matt Finish", a song called "Short Note"
Matt Finish was a band with Matt Moffitt as a lead singer & guitarist.

Matt grew up in Glenbook, Blue Mountains, NSW, (Glenbrook is 15mins down the road from where I live (I'm in Springwood)).
He formed the band Matt Finish in 1979 and toured with bands like U2, Midnight Oil, INXS, The Ramones & Brian Ferry (Roxy Music).

Sadly On 13 August 2003, Matt Moffitt died on his Birthday in his sleep at the age of 46


Matt released 4 albums from 1981 - 1993 & 4 EP's.
My favorite songs would be "Short Note", "Miss this Tonight" & "All that Stuff".......
"Miss this Tonight" is an awesome song I never sick of hearing.

Classic Australian music that will never be forgotten.












SHORT NOTE  (thanks to John Prior for the video)



MISS THIS TONIGHT  (thanks to aussie80ss for the video)



ALL THAT STUFF    (thanks to aussietv2 for the video)



BILLY FIELD - YOU WEREN'T IN LOVE WITH ME (lost hit)

Hello and welcome back..... Sometimes the simple things in life are often the best..... as with this 1981 song, just a man (Billy Field) and a piano, letting the lyrics hit you in the heart.
I love this song...reminds me of a certain girl in my life at the time, yes I was in love with her, but she was just friends with me.....
Billy also had a hit called "Bad Habits" also in 1981, it was more of a Swing type of song but it was a hit non the less, but it was the song "You weren't in love with me" that always brings a small tear to my eye.
yes folks, I am an emotional cushion sometimes.








YOU WEREN'T IN LOVE WITH ME  (massive thanks to nzoz1981 for the videos)

ALF - STUCK ON EARTH (lost hit)

Hello and welcome back.....Who could forget the lovable alien "ALF" from the planet Melmac.
He was so Cute & Loveable that he could get away with anything including trying to eat the Tanner family cat (Lucky) 
ALF was short for Alien Life Form
Did I mention he was cute?
The name of Melmac was in reference to dinnerware from the 1950s.





In 1987 a Dutch radio show did a remix called "Stuck on Earth", I admit I brought this single....It was catchy, one of those songs that stick in your head.
Stuck on Earth made it to No 6 in the Dutch music

If only all aliens were this cute...... Just hide your cat




ALF - STUCK ON EARTH
