EBN OZN - AEIOU and Sometimes Y
I SO loved this song.
It was one of the best gimmicky songs of the 80's.
Once you heard it, it would stay in your head for the rest of the day, the melody popping up while you rode the school bus or tried to pay attention in Chemistry class. I am actually quite sorry to post it today, as some of you undoubtedly will be humming it incessantly throughout your day.
I had this album, 'Feeling Cavalier', and can't say I recall listening to any song on it but this one. But boy, did I listen to it! I can remember, even then, thinking that this song, and the lead singer, were kinda cool, kinda dorky, kinda stupid, and kinda funny all rolled into one. Make note in the video of his suede shoes with no socks, the Swedish teacher's big white earrings, and, of course, that rat-tail extension hanging from his head.
It looks like a rat died in his hairdo.
