Remembering Japanese cars from the past


Hilarious: The Checkers (???????) namidano rekuesuto

Not that I’m a big fan of The Checkers (???????), but I came ac across them on with the song Electronic Dreams which is absolutely horrible. So actually I was looking for that video instead.

However I did come across their music video of Namidano Rekuesuto (also known as Namida no Request):

If you can’t watch the video, here is it located on youtube:

As you can see this is definitely a more horrible 80s video then

Hilarious: Sonseed – Jesus is my friend

After two weeks of drifting Babe action I thought I should change back to the musical entries. ;)

Not a entry because I found this one genuinly through Youtube:

Once I tried to run, once I tried to hide, but Jesus found me and touched me deep down inside.

I personally love 80s ska bands like Madness, Specials (or Special AKA or the Special Beat), Mark Foggo and Mr. Review but I don’t really like this! ;)

I don’t really have anything to say about this except that the guitarist really goes wild at 1:36! ;)

BTW: This is not meant to insult Christian followers. :P

Hilarious: Den Harrow

Again I had a tough one after last weeks Mr. T raps and Jozin z Bazin, but again I managed to find another gem! :)

This week I found Den Harrow when searching material for the Italo Disco vs Early demoscene posting. I remember Den Harrow from my youth and back then I thought some of his songs were great!
One of my favorites was Future Brain (great clip!)

Well, boy was I wrong. I just heard “A Taste Of Love” on and immediately thought it was great stuff for the hilarious section.

When looking at this and reading the Wikipedia page about Den Harrow I found this small quote:

Revealing the Truth
After years of continued fame and popularity, the fans of Den Harrow were faced with an unbelievable news, it was revealed both by the frontman of Den Harrow Stefano Zandri and the producers that they had been hiding the truth from their millions of fans. It was disclosed that Stefano Zandri did not actually sing his own songs; he was essentially a character who lip-synched to vocals produced by a number of other Italo singers.

No shit? He didn’t sing that himself? Amazing nobody ever noticed! It’s soooo obvious if you look at that live perfomance! And the alternating voices between the songs and years?

Something that would be a nice thing is that if Den Harrow jumped from the Italo disco bandwagon on to the Eurobeat bandwagon during the early 90s instead of persisting that he learned to sing and still performes 100% the same song over and over again

The sad thing is that he nowadays claims he leaned to sing and still sings Future Brain with the same voice as 23 years ago!

Hilarious: Jozin z bazin

This weeks hilarious posting is not one from

I got this one from my Polish colleagues some time ago and I can’t stop laughing about it when I see it. They told me they are a bunch of comedians who performed this song at national television in 1978.

Especially the guy with the weird voice belching into the cup. It reminds me of an old colleague who invented the “haubing”, which is a technique to sing when belching!

And the dancing guy: it looks like he’s got parkinson. The guy next to him doesn’t even move at all!

Here are the translated lyrics:

1. I drive Skoda 100 to camp here on Orawa
So I hurry, take a risk – go through Morawa
The monster lives there, comes out of the bog
Eats mostly Prague citizen, its name is Jozin (Joseph)

Chorus: Jozin from the bog creeps through swamp
Jozin from the bog closes to the village
Jozin from the bog edges its teeth
Jozin from the bog bites, strangles
To defeat Jozin from the bog, who could imagine, only works a plane with manure (white powder)

2. I was driving through the village on road to Vizowice
The village mayor greeted me, said to me during drinking Sliwowica (DIY plum vodka)
‘The one who will bring Jozin dead or alive
gets my daughter and a half of National Agrarian Farm

Chorus: Jozin…

3. I said: ‘give me a plane and powder, mayor,
I’ll bring you Jozin, I see no trouble about that’,
Mayor helped me, in the morning I went up in the sky
The powder from the plane prettily fell on Jozin
Jozin from swamp is totaly white now
Jozin from swamp is running away from the mud
Jozin from swamp ended up on the rock
Jozin from swamp will meet his end here”

I got Jozin from swamp, now I hold him in my hand
A bit of money is always nice so I will sell him to a ZOO

Hilarious: Mr. T raps

After the Gumbay Dance Band of last week I had to dig up something good… This week I found Mr. T rapping! Somehow (not surprising) Mr. T and rapping is not something that mixes…

Just look at this hilarious attempt of Mr. T to make some profit from his rapping skills:

There is no other
Like Mother
So treat Her right
I always Love Her
My Mother
So treat Her right, treat Her right

Deeeehm… What terrible lyrics!!
And that last scene! I almost threw up my breakfast, and it’s almost evening!!

And this attempt…


Do I need to say more??

I’m not sure if anything posted as hilarious will ever surpass this! Anyway, next week another hilarious posting!

Hilarious: Gumbay Dance Band

After last week’s hilarious entry of Fancy I have another one: the Goombay Dance Band.

The Gumbay Dance Band is a German Boney M spin off which best can be described as German Schlager music combined with Jamaican goombay music.

Just look at this fantastic clip:

The singer starts breathing fire, then starts singing Schlager and after a while just babbling some stuff (is that supposed to be the predecessor of rap???). He has a really nice, ahum, open shirt and with his golden curly hair he really looks like he is from Jamaica. ;)

It gets really hilarious when they start limbo dancing: those children doing limbo are crawling on the floor: that’s no limbo!! The male dancer sets the pole on fire and starts doing his limbo dance and eats the fire after passing the pole. What is this? A circus act?

Then we get a closeup of one of the woman dancers: scary!! She looks like a voodoo which!!

They still exist and still tour, so maybe you’re lucky and they will visit your town someday! Or you can just wait till 1:58 and write down their address and book them! :P

Another hilarious posting next week. :)
