By Lorenzo Anzoátegui
01. Heather Parisi - Crilú
The Holy Grail of Everything. Artists' supplies come to life while Disney lawyers drop acid in Vahalla. Italian TV in the 80s had budgets like they used to have in Ancient Egypt (you know, for pyramid-building and shit).
02. Bitchin' in the Kitchen (from "Shock Treatment")
Household appliances witnessing deconstructed marital problems. In a faux-ska stylee. So meta it hurts.
03. Elli et Jacno - Oh La La
Notice how Elli's legs are constantly forming a triangle in this thrift-store Illuminatti Op-Art conceptual OMGness.
04. Rubí & Los Casinos - Yo Tenía Un Novio (Que Tocaba En Un Conjunto Beat)
Super-short new-wave mini-dress meets super-narrative lyrics about getting dumped by drummer boyfriend who makes it big. By Argentine exiles in early 80s Madrid is Burning.
05. Lio - Baby Lou
She was the most successful pop-art experiment ever. This song, originally a funk-lite Gainsbourg-penned Jane Birkin number, soars in her hands. And just look at that sweater.
06. Trix - You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
These Argentine Golden Triplets had their five minutes of pointlessness touring Germany (d'uh), Japan and Italy (did anybody say Axis?) Listen to those gorgeous harmonies only siblings can pull off. Live from The West Berlin Orange Juice Porn Hoottenanny.
07. Julio Iglesias - La Mer
Multi-cam Julio gives the Trenet classic the porn-Tropez treatment.
08. Sonny King - I Cried For You
Behold the Godard-y (or proto-Michel Gondry-y) sequence after the soft-shoe bit.
09. Sue Thompson - Paper Tiger
All my best dancing moves come from the Hullabaloo dancers. Pure sixties unintentional techno.
10. Zouk Machine - Maldon
This is from that Futurama episode when Diana Ross and Jean-Paul Gaultier make love.
11. Raffaella Carrá - Total Eclipse of the Heart
The Birth of WTF. Somebody fed this after midnight and Gaga was born.
