The riff goes, then the drum, [ We used to open and close concerts with '' for a long time. Bata did the arrangementsand I think he did it great. He played the harmonica solo on the synthyand did it great. It was among the first songs [from the album] to become a hit, because people already knew it. At the time of the first album I even used to wear a rastacap. Reggae is always played a little bit sloppy.
We wanted to have something like brass players from Jamaicawhich never sound like jazz musicians, but as amateurs playing trumpets. One of the dearest reggae pieces I made. That was the time when stuff like Billy Idol was very popular. On Sa druge strane jastuka it was adjusted to the time. In the Youth Centerwhere we had rehearsals, was a jazz club which worked until two A. We often hanged out with jazzers, because we used to keep our instruments in the same room and we often used to stay together until three or four A.
Later, one of the jazzer said to me: No Money Down - Chuck Berry - The Chess Box not a jazzer, but you made one of the rare domestic jazz standards '. Sounds great, although it wasn't easy to play. I think that Sa druge strane jastuka is a good name for an album. All the love songs there are in a way on the other side of the Francuska Ljubavna Revolucija - Bajaga I Instruktori - Sa Druge Strane Jastuka when you sleep.
The name of the album should be something that can connect other songs as well. At the time, people used to take all sorts of things. The song itself is a half- punk with a melodic refrain. It's a small sting directed towards psychiatry.
Even during socialism psychiatrists used to resolve a lot of problems with pills instead of conversation. The easiest thing to do is to prescribe pills to someone. I loved the film Twentieth Centuryit was an interesting title, so I wrote the song. There's a little critic of playback singer. We thought it was crazy [ Rap wasn't that popular at the time, but there were short forms in which someone talked.
I thought it would be fun if there was another voice. I always did that, to have both male and female voices. I can only listen Déjà Vu - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - So Far Johnny Cash singing twelve songs alone. Our friend Mita, a folkerknew to play some French stuff on the accordion. And it sounds great, a great act on the concerts.
We played on some festival in Toulouse inand they thought it was interesting. A fun song, with lyrics without much importance, like in the most of twelve bars. Slow tempomy voice additionally low and only three chordsbut I think it has a good atmosphere. The first song with atmosphere of which I was completely satisfied. The arrangements were done by Bata, we didn't interfere into his job.
I think he did it great. Actually, It's a very simple song. In it I showed that sometimes the simplest is the best. Somewhere between a ballad and a lullaby. For the Francuska Ljubavna Revolucija - Bajaga I Instruktori - Sa Druge Strane Jastuka meseca [ Hit of the Francuska Ljubavna Revolucija - Bajaga I Instruktori - Sa Druge Strane Jastuka ] show everybody used to choose a song with which they would be represented. If someone asks you: 'What should a song for Hit meseca be like', the answer is: 'Fast and with a hit potential'.
They gave us a great budget and two days to record a video, which was amazing. The videos were usually recorded for three hours And we made the dummest possible video.
Me, with a dog, on the snow And then we're hugging in some apartment. Totally crazy. All together, it was a piece of shit. It was that bad that they played it on one show, on the second, and for the third one they called us to perform live, they didn't want to play the video, it was that awful. And we reached top of the Hit meseca' s chart.
