"45 45's until I'm 45" (#38/45)

Good morning friends,

something for those of you with an appetite for the bizarre today, at least in one form or another. I think it is a brilliant tune, albeit perhaps of some obscurity, then again - as I pointed out before - there is no reason to withdraw from it just because it is not commonly known amongst you youngsters out there.

The Pete Best Beatles were an eccentric Melbourne/Australia pub rock comedy act from the early 80's and no, I don't have the slightest idea whatever became of them. In my book they should rule the world, simply because of what is your number thirty-eight, people, so please enjoy:

from the '"Sounds" For The Sophisticated Cabaret Music Lover' - 7" EP, Strine Music - SM 001 (1984)
Now, wasn't this neat? I know you all like it when a good story is being told in a song, right? And so do I .... also there is a fantastic video of a live performance of that on Youtube, highly recommended, so have a look there as well!
I really would like to know whether this stroke a chord with you or not, so please leave a comment, okay? Thanks ...
See you soon/take care,

Hallo Dirk - und wieder hast Du so ein kleines Meisterwerk aus dem Hut gezaubert, das mir nicht mehr aus dem Kopf geht. Auch das Video trifft's. Simply Power Pop from the 80s. Schönes Wochenende
