THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
545-Alvin Stardust-My Coo Ca Choo.
1973-Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 1.20.I can only hope that being called a ‘Coo Ca Choo’ is a term of endearment.
The song was originally written and performed by Peter Shelley, (not to be confused with Pete Shelley,lead singer of The Buzzcocks.) Shelley had no ambition to be a ‘Glam Rock’ star,so when My Coo Ca Choo was becoming successful he had to find someone to front the song and become Alvin Stardust.That someone was Bernard Jewry who had tasted chart success in the early 60’s as Shane Fenton. He dyed his hair,wore black clothing and one black glove,the image of Alvin Stardust was born.
My Coo Ca Choo was a success worldwide,notably spending seven weeks at Number 1 in Australia.
‘Tom Cat! why’ know where it’s at come on lets go to my flat lay down ‘n groove on the mat.’
