Nailed it, John!

Can't wait to hear the 12" extended remix

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

By letter? I'm just trying to cram a "Moroder, he wrote" pun into this.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Getting back on topic I heard a snippet of this dreck today and it occurred to me that it must be the worst song ever.



Absolute garbage.
A number one hit in the USA!

They're like the only British band to have a US #1 without even charting in the UK. It was a big song in Australia too, I was like 6 when it came out, and the floating arms in the clip freaked me the fuck out.

Freddie & The Dreamers is the one British Invasion band that no one will admit to liking now, for they are considered to be a total embarrassment. And yet their "Nightcap" album is going for big bucks as a CD reissue, and when you sit down and have an unguarded listen to a career comp, all sorts of surprises leap out of the speakers. Take for instance a B-side from '66, "Short Shorts", which was a cover of a song by Royal Teens. It is the Dreamers at their zaniest, most out there. Just completely idiotic, and yet you cannot help but warm to it in all its tautological glory, relish that cretinous, falsetto-like call-and-response: "Who's real crazy?" No wonder it became a concert staple for them.

"When the desert comes, people will be sad; just as Cannery Row was sad when all the pilchards were caught and canned and eaten." - John Steinbeck

I mean, it's trash, and the singer is about the biggest dick ever to hold a microphone, but I've heard a LOT worse.

Yeah I finally heard that stupid Prefab Sprout song mentioned in Polishgirl's sig and that's a million times worse than Escape Club, horrendous on every level.

Wow, they're British?! I never knew that.
It's not that bad, Count :) A harmless bit of dumb fun, not close to 'What's Up' level.
