A while back Eric J Baker posted about his all time most annoying song. I actually liked Come On Eileen by Dexy’s Midnight Runners so I thought this was as suitable revenge for Eric! (If revenge is the right word.)
Recently I set my music player to play ALL songs randomly, instead of selected play-lists or albums, something I hadn’t done in quite a while. And boy did that bring some memories back!
Amongst the throng of the brilliant and the absolute crap was this little gem by Alvin Stardust. My Coo Ca Choo. It could also be eligible for the most annoying song ever but I felt that Daggiest, Corniest, Cheesiest were also applicable.
Check out either the Original 1973 video with the start and end chopped off, a 1974 version apparently badly mimed or badly dubbed live at some TV music show, or you can see Alvin perform, sorry mime, it at a live gig in a 1996 come-back.
By the way, I still play this song. It’s awesome!
