Mini-Pop Slutfest





:: Mini-Pops - Video Killed The Radio Star ::

:: Mini-Pops - Novelty Medley ::

Here we are with another song sung by kids, so apologies in advance, though I don’t think it’s too bad. This one actually holds a bit of nostalgia for me, as the record somehow made it into my household when it came out in on K-Tel in 1982. My eight-year old self spent a little too much time listening to the Mini-Pops version of The Buggles early synth-pop classic, “Video Killed the Radio Star.” Come to think of it, I don’t think I had heard the original at that point, so this version was my shameful introduction to the song. The Mini-Pops were a television show in Britain in the 1983 and apparently caused a bit of an uproar over the inappropriateness of small children being dolled up like adults and suggestively dancing and singing pop songs. In Philadelphia, we had our own disturbing version, called “Al Alberts’ Showcase,” where we not only got song and dance in little frilly outfits, but little girls sitting on creepy Al’s lap to tell him jokes at the end of the show.

Oh my, can I 2nd the request for Baggy Trousers? must...hear...!

Be careful what you wish for...

The tune should be up soon in this spot, though it's included on the record as part of a "novelty medley." Also in the medley: "The Green Door," "Turning Japanese," "Stop the Cavalry," "You Drive Me Crazy," and "There's a Guy Works Down at the Chip Shop."
