Song 55 Barnes and Barnes

Barnes and Barnes - Fish Heads, 1979

'Fish heads! Fish heads! Roly-poly fish heads!' 1979? Really? How could this song have been recorded in 1979, when I remember it so strongly from Muchmusic in the mid 80s? It makes no sense, I tell you. (If the song played on Monday, you just knew someone would be singing it in class on Tuesday, and as anyone who knows my family could guess, it was a firm favourite in our house for years.) So let's keep this tune with Eraserhead in the category of 'released in the late seventies and %&*#ing up heads throughout the decade to come.' Enjoy. Or recoil. Or sit baffled and whimpering, rocking back and forth and wondering why you got up today. It's up to you. That's the beauty of Fish Heads!
