I Don't Wanna Die In An Air Disaster

Who the hell would write a song with that title? Albert Hammond that's who. Hammond is more famous for the song It Never Rains in Southern California and being daddy to one of the Strokes.

I found this song along with other weird stuff on a newsgroup. It was with the rest of the 1974 and 1976 Dutch Top 40. The Dutch liked some weird stuff. The less said about the Al Martino's disco version of Volare the better.

I'm also now the owner of some George Baker Selection tracks other than Little Green Bag all of which suck. How could a song called (Fly Away) Little Paraquayo not suck?

The sole gem of the bunch is The Walker Brothers No Regrets. That song is just amazing. sigh...
