Seriously weird 80s song

Recommended Posts

YouTube - Jona Lewie - "In the Kitchen at Parties" on TOTP

I remember this vaguely from when it was out, as I much preferred it to bloody Stop the Cavalry. Just found it on youtube: is it me or is it about the weirdest thing to ever be a top ten hit? The time changes are mumbled vocals are odd enough, but wait til you hear what happens at 2.15!!!!!!!

The memories are flodding back!

Try Sweaters by Laurie Anderson for oddness from the same era - bagpipes & lyrics lifted straight from an early Goddard film! :eek:

Laurie Anederson, Jesus. That album was called big Science, and one of the tracks began with a wolf howling, then a phone ringing, then a horribly discordant sequence of notes. A housemate of mine userd to play it in the middle of the night to freak us out!

That Jona Lewie track: the backing vocalist, not the one in the red dress but the other one, I swear she drinks in my local (in London.) If she has, she ain't changed a bit.

Check out the keyboard player at 1.49 and at 2.40!
