Songs of My Life #54 - Scatterbrain - Don't Call Me Dude - 1990

Songs of My Life #54 - Scatterbrain - Don't Call Me Dude - 1990

Back in 1990, another strange kinda song started creeping onto the airwaves of Australia. It was a strange song, mixed as it is in style and genre. It was also reasonably long, so it was strange for radio to take it on. Of course, the music video attracted some of the attention, and the story subject matter of the lyrics also created amusement amongst the young people.

I enjoy this song, but the reason this song is listed here is because it led me to go out and get Scatterbrain's debut album which this song was on, "Here Comes Trouble", and it is just brilliant. Not only that, I then went and saw the band live when they toured Australia at Waves at Wollongong, and it was one of the best gigs I have seen.

What is probably not a surprise to you laymen out there that don't remember the song but still surprises me to this day is that Scatterbrain didn't go on to bigger things.
