Ich lieb dich nicht, du liebst mich nicht, uh-huh

Fellow Blogspottian and Honorary Brother-From-Another-Mother Fritz from the wonderful blog Mookie dug up this from who knows what musty corner of the Eighties Video closet. Trio performing their lone hit "Da Da Da".

I bought that album from Trio (Trio & Error) on the strength of that song alone back in, what? 1983? It was featured in the craptastic Phoebe Cates sex comedy "Private School". "Da Da Da" was definitely the best song on there, the rest being even cheesier and the arrangements even lazier.

I think that album is out of print now, but I do remember most of the song titles being really repetitive. Aside from "Da Da Da", there was "Boom Boom", "Bye Bye", "W.W.W." and "Tutti Frutti". You could tell they probably didn't know a word of English.

And finally, the full title of the song is actually "Da Da Da I Don't Love You You Don't Love Me Aha Aha Aha".

As Sean Connery's Chicago beat cop character Jim Malone said in The Untouchables after schooling Costner's Elliott Ness, "Here endeth the lesson."
