Amateurism

Trio - Da Da Da (Version Originale Anglaise)

Leo Walton, VibesLeo WaltonComment

Just another example to prove my much broadcasted opinion that 1982 was the golden year for unusual pop music. This little ditty from the German band Trio is a strange mix of clashing elements that simply shouldn't work, but it's carried out with such pizazz that (to me) its the very definition of vibes.

In review: A relentless casio-influenced bleeping groove gives the backbone to Stephan Remmler's droll but brilliant "Da, Da, Da" vocal. Combine that with just the right amount of off-kilter breakdowns, uplifting guitar licks and the truly tropical piano chords that are used with wonderful restraint, and quite simply, you have an AMATEURISM HIT.

"Ich lieb' dich nicht du lebst mich nicht" 5/5
