At the end of Electric Avenue

Roger Green’s slice-of-life story yesterday centered on Eddy Grant’s humongous hit record “Electric Avenue,” to which I tacked on a bit of marketing history. It gave me an idea, and I stumbled down several roads that didn’t go anywhere before finding this exquisite bit of silliness. From 1998, this is Eurodance combo Duck, from beautiful downtown Serbia, with “Kako si mogao” (“How could you?”):

This is, of course, a rewrite of Eddy Grant’s “Romancing the Stone,” a song written for the 20th Century-Fox movie of the same name but not used therein.
