An 80's cheese banger. I only knew it from the Rocky IV soundtrack.


Love the bass.
That guitar lick during the outro reminds me of Seven wonders by Fleetwood Mac

More obscure Prince side-projects, his "jazz" group - didn't know they had videos though






it kind of looks like an episode of Batman


or a very cheap Michael Jackson video I guess.

I was just reminded of this. I haven heard it in about 40 years and I've never seen the video.

"Originally released as a single in 1976, the BBC banned it due to the drug and homosexual references. However, thanks to Kenny Everett, the song received a lot of airplay on his TV & radio shows, and was re-released in 1979. "



"Tonto know that Kimosabi
Never ever have a woman
Tonto sometime stop and wonder
What the trip with the great white brother
Maybe masked man he a poofter
Try it on with surly Tonto
Let me say to mister lawman
Tonto doesn't mind "

The glory days of horse-faced popstars
