“He smoke pipe of peace with Tonto
Put his mask on back to fronto”

Doesn’t get much sillier than that

Obvious one and prob more ‘cosmic’ than the b word maybe, but when he sings “it’s so existing” instead of ‘exciting’ gets me every time.

Good shout!

I’ve dropped the Balearic from the title. Pleasingly Idiotic Records works just fine :slight_smile:

the term idiotic doesn’t quite sit right with me here. a lot of these are certainly kitsch italian pop/disco records (which I love to bits) but they are very evocative of a certain time when producers were just playing around and adding an Italian twist to imported sounds. Idiotic to me implies something more ridiculous and disposable (or maybe I’m over analysing?) - either way, safe to assume they were never meant to be analysed by nerds 30/40 years later

Found this interview with Pino D’Angio from 2022 I think (who else knew that he wrote Age of Love?!)

Yeah Idiotic probably isn’t the right word for some of these. Maybe it is just fun songs that put a big smile on your face when you hear it?

It’s not meant as a diss to any of the tracks, I just wanted to try and find more songs like Magazine 60 - Don Quichotte mentioned in “The Balearic Seminar” post. I only heard that for the first time recently and absolutely love it! I knew there would be more tracks out there with a similar feeling / vibe.

“Between legend and mockery” sounds like a good if slightly obscure thread title for this kind of sound.

The techno chat in the track ID thread just reminded me of this corker. I love this way more than I really should. Never fails to raise a smile. I mean just look at it!! Brilliant
