Da Da Da (whatever its merits...) somehow sounds like million bucks right now.

I didn't hesitate to go for 'Broken Wings'

I like both, in some perverse way. Da Da Da played that summer I graduated from high school and was alone in Paris, it was everywhere. A really minimalistic euroclassic, guaranteed to annoy some people.

Broken Wings is not quite as startling, more traditional songcraft on display here, but there is nothing wrong with it, a second division effort. For sheer nerve, I vote Da Da Da. If you can have One Note Samba, there should be a place for Da Da Da.
1966 and all that

It's got that sub industrial darkwave bass that leads Cetera to scream "Take These Broken Wings". Of course Cetera would explore that further when he left Mr Mister to form Death in June. Is it just me or is the verse thrillingly morbid? I know Nine Inch Nails would commercialise this sound later, but there's something to be said for hearing it raw like this, in its deathly apocalyptical form, especially with those Chris and Cosey sub woofter atonal bits on the psychothiser which make you bite your head off. Fantastic!

The other one's crap. The kind of thing Noel Edmonds listens to.

Indeed. I listened to it once and had to run to the toilet three times over the next hour.

For better or worse, there's no denying that 'Da Da Da''s insanely catchy. The hook is pure simplicity, so it's no surprise that some advertising simpletons decided to steal it for an Australian food ad flogging rice crackers.

The Trio thing is gimmicky shit made by the sort of rancid fools you'd hope to avoid for the whole of your life. It's no fun.

They're all probably MEPs now, "We were making some fun music in the 80s but now we are concerning ourselves with the future of the motorways in Europe"

Da da wears out its welcome after about 30 seconds.

I remember the Broken Wings song. It’s alright, you know?

The Trio record made me realise, in a way that ’punk’ never did, that you don’t have to be RIck Wakeman to play keyboards in a successful rock band, and get loads of chicks.
Heyyyy!
