These kinds of threads always turn into absolute shitshows with people trying to be edgy and funny.
I think Dexy's was a band that was constantly changing their looks & style of music (because the lead singer was a control freak) and they had a few hits (at least in the UK), but Come On Eileen and the "overalls & banjos" look and sound was their only US hit.7
The lead singer was a control freak, he literally fired the drummer DURING this music video shoot because he took a bath, yes you read that right, because the drummer took a BATH.
He wanted them to look "dirty" for the video and forbid them from all taking baths while they were filming the video over a few days. That's why after a certain point in the video you never see him again.
They made one more album after this song and it didn't do well and then they broke up.
Wow. I mean to dismiss Dylan's catalogue like that.
Those didn't really do well in the charts though?
I'll take what is satire for 500.Wow. I mean to dismiss Dylan's catalogue like that.
How you can say that stuff like Desolation row, Love minus zero, Stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis blues again, With god on our side, Its all over now baby blue, A Hard rain's a gonna fall etc aren't "all time greats" is completely beyond me!
a friend of mine made a huge mistake of buying their album (we were in high school at the time, and money was scarce). never again!
