AEIOU Sometimes Y – EBN-OZN

Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.

This is perhaps the last genre of music that anybody would guess me doing a SoftD in, but I heard it on my iPod, and I can’t get it out of my head. This short-lived New Age duo made something so quintessential ’80s and funny that it didn’t seem fair not to relish in its campiness. The story is kind of funny, especially featuring a Lola(!) and the synths are full-on, but the kicker is the chorus. It’s so rhythmically perfect. A. E. I. O. U. Some. Times. Y. I think the video cuts off part of the song, but you can email Pinko and he’ll give you the full version.

  • No way! The last time we posted this I think we accused Ebn, or is it Ozn? of looking like David Lee Roth’s Waver cousin. I think that still applies.

  • Clearly, there is a mistake in the recording. It’s not “Lola” but “Lolcat”.

    True story.

  • This used to be on VH-1 Classic’s “the Alternative” all the time when that show still existed. Though not nearly as much as anything Weller related.

  • A sugary slice of New Wave boppability. Thank you. If my old, old gray feet could dance, they would.

    This should be in D or D, under DELICIOUSLY SWEET, natch.

    Seitz, Weller’s lates live bit “Catch-Flame” rocks pretty cool.
