Shaddap You Face

Many years ago in a land of baggy trousers and ruffle shirts a song was denied a place in history. Vienna, that old drawn out 80's classic was squished by a certain Joe Dolce to No 1 with a shocking track called "Shaddap You Face".

"Whassamatta you? (hey!)
Gotta no respect?
Whaddaya think you do?
Why you looka so sad?
It's-a not so bad
It's-a nice-a place
Ah, shaddap you face!"

It seems a campaign of epic proportions has begin to rig the charts and send Vienna to the top.

The sacred charts used to have a meaning once, singles would truly be worthy of a place up there..now it seems you can get anything up there.

So, I am going to start another for "Remember you're a womble" and see if I can get those refuse collectors back to where they belong.


  1. Didn't he sit in a bath of baked beans on the Top of the Pops set to sing this? Hope your 69p has been wisely spent!
    Now getting back to the Wombles!!!!! Leave well alone Dave.......

  2. Refuse collectors pah. Ring me up when you've donned a bin liner to sing I Eat Cannibal. Go Toto Coelo!!!

  3. Dave ---- where are you????
