Annie, I’m Not Your Daddy
Kid Creole and the Coconuts
Peak UK position: #2 (30/10/1982)
Ever have those records where you hear them for the first time and you immediately stop dead in your tracks and begin searching frantically for this amazing tune you’ve somehow never come across before? Yeah, this was one of those lightbulb moments for me. The moment I first heard this record on telly about two or three months ago, I knew I had to do everything in my power to track it down, listen to it a million times in a row and then seek it out as a single. If any song has ever grabbed me on first listen, it was this. What an intense rush of emotions that was.
This was Kid Creole and the Coconuts’ third and last UK top 10 single, and their biggest success, reportedly earning frontman August Darnell enough royalties to last him a lifetime. It treads similar lyrical ground to Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean, it’s basically the same story but told differently and A LOT harsher, the peak point coming with the iconic line “see if I was in your blood, then you wouldn’t be so ugly”… owch!
Nobody ever focuses on the lyrics though, the song’s groove is where it’s all happening. The light calypso feel mixed with a shuffling, almost post-disco feel results in something almost dangerously danceable, while the Coconuts’ backing vocals (and the infamous misheard chant of “ono-ono-onomatopoeia) turn the black humour of the lyrics into something genuinely joyful. It’s a fine example of tonal juxtaposition in the manner of 99 Red Balloons or Karma Chameleon, something that should be unnerving or miserable being turned into something genuinely fun and frivolous. It might just even be the most irresistibly fun song I know, put this song on at a party and you’ll have the entire room going absolutely nuts. Anyone who doesn’t have some kind of physical response to this song must be lacking a pulse. (decent 9 out of 10)

I love the Talking Heads T in #CMBYNfilm . #DavidByrne is one of our great songwriters and musicians. (Also remember Jonathan Demme dir. #TalkingHeads "Stop Making Sense") Great costume design by #GiuliaPiersanti --just #eighties enough but not distracting, overall.
And Timmy's T yesterday references Christiane F., a German actress whose autobiographical account of her drug use brings to mind Nic and David Sheff and #BeautifulBoyFilm (#BTS pic with #ArmieHammer / fan pic is with @brian_pechar)
