Seven Tears


Not much happening right now, so I'll leave you all with 'Seven Tears' by The Goombay Dance Band.

Sing along, y'all! (unless you are Australian)

I have to tell you I have never in my life heard of that song or that band (that's what living over the other side of the world will do to to ya) but might I say I am all the more better for hearing that song...thank you inchy! It brought a smile to my lunch break.

You've never heard of The Goombay Dance Band, Germany's premier calypso/pop act of the 1980's?!

Are you sure you haven't been in prison?

Ah, The Goombay Dance Band... a poor man's Boney M. And slightly gayer...

sparsely kate said...

Nope, never been in prison (though I was once married, does that count?)

We've heard of Abba and Boney M but I do not know of one Aussie who has heard of th Goombay Dance Band.

I completely agree with you that there is something wrong with that picture - how could we be missing out!?!

P.s I had a German pen pal once...for years we wrote to one another. He sent me a German band's CD (they sung in English) called Phillip Boa and the Voodoo Dolls.
They absolutely rock and I still listen to them today.
But I don't think many Aussies would know about them either.....

You really have lived a sheltered antipodean life.
