Look out bro, here it come



Timeslip moment again...

Plonked down in this week twenty years ago, our TARDIS has placed us in a world where OJ Simpson, war in Bosnia, the introduction of metric weights and measures in the UK and the launch of the Vauxhall Vectra were occupying the headlines, Bet Lynch (Julie Goodyear) left Coronation Street, and To Die For, Hackers and To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar were on our screens.

In a chart that included such unlikely bedfellows as Suggs, The Rembrandts, Kylie and Nick Cave, Pulp, Jacksons Michael and Janet, Def Leppard, Wet Wet Wet, Michael Bolton, Green Day, hideous wibblers (Ms Dion and Ms Carey), Blur, Oasis, Adiemus and Simply Red, hanging in there were some cracking dance choons - including this one!

Here's The Candy Girls (with Sweet Pussy Pauline - whatever happened to her?) and Fee Fi Fo Fum:



You better walk girls, walk girls, walk girls
Walk girls, walk girls (damn damn damn damn)
Now it was time for me to walk
Ow! Ow!
Boom a-shack-a-lack-a boom boom
Boom a-shack-a-lack-a boom boom
Boom a-shack-a-lack boom a-shack-a-lack
Boom a-shack-a-lack-a boom boom
(Come on baby, come on babe) (4x)
Ow! (Come on baby, come on babe)
Ow! (Come on baby, come on babe)
Ow! (Come on baby, come on babe)
Ow! (Come on babe) Ow! (Come on babe) Ow! (Come on babe) Ow! (Come on babe)
Ow!
Fee Fi Fo Fum, Fee Fi Fo Fum
Fee Fi Fo Fum, look out bro, here it come
(Ow!) Fee Fi Fo Fum, Fee Fi Fo Fum
Fee Fi Fo Fum, look out bro, here it come
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!


Positively Shakespearian.

  1. That was a fun track - although "Wham Bam" remains my fave...

    1. I love them both! In fact I am fond of all that "bitch-vogue" stuff from the 90s. Jx

      PS I found whatever happened to "Sweet Pussy Pauline"...
