"Roman P": Of the many versions of the song, the best known is the "Fireball Mix", which was featured in a mid-1990s Volkswagen commercial, to the confusion of many fans.

What a great theme. There was a musical skit on the Tracey Ullman show using this song, about a Beverly Hills proctologist and his ex-wife.
  Tue. 10/17/17 1:04pm melinda:

Anyone else remember those musical numbers? I loved the show.

Thanks, Gordon. This track is everything.

Did anyone hear Irwin on Dan Bodah's show yesterday. I think he might have said R Stevie Moore played back up on some Shooby Taylor tracks. Or am I confusing stories?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 10/17/17 1:26pm I am the Upsetter:

three sunrises ( for me) was the last great u2 song. Still holds together well.

Sometime in the '80s or '90s I got to see Nell Campbell do her sitting-on-a-stool-on-a-stage cabaret chanteuse act. I enjoyed it.

I mean, she's no Ute Lemper... but I liked it.

So this song. Does she go back to the guy from Kansas City? Or stay with her current love. I always felt like she goes back to the former beau.

Now I gotta look up that version too.
Lopez: yeah, WTF.
Avatar Tue. 10/17/17 2:19pm Hughie Considine:

Something in the pronunciation of "at your desire" makes it clear that Shocking Blue's Mariska Veres learned the song phonetically.
Avatar    Tue. 10/17/17 2:20pm Mike Lupica:

Here's one of those blue Pier Platters biz cards Rev. Turnip Druid mentioned: tinyurl.com...

Oh shit, Housemartins!
Avatar Tue. 10/17/17 2:22pm Hughie Considine:

I firmly believe that the inaudibility of the bass on Housemartins records inspired Norman Cook to become Fatboy Slim and start big beat, where you could always hear the bass.

Avatar Tue. 10/17/17 2:45pm Lopez:

Pseu: the way you were talking about your name being misspelled came across as angry to me and I remembered coming across that article years ago. Gender neutral reference. I even made sure to spell your name correctly and I'm listening because I dig your show. World peace! Gender neutral anger ftw!
Avatar Tue. 10/17/17 2:46pm Pseu Braun:

well if you lo-splain it that way. I can't tell you how many men truly believe my happy go lucky banter is "angry". it's exhausting.
