It was premiered a year earlier in a Get Smart - Cinerama - Torino Peel Session that was first broadcast on the 24th May alongside three other songs that went on to be singles. The title was probably influenced by the American TV show of the Energie - Trio - Live Im Frühjahr ’82 name from the late sixties see below, I was right!
It was a spoof spy series created by Mel Brooks and starring Don Adams. Certainly not the only Gedge song to have a spy-influenced title. Accurate, funny and a joy to hear. Vocally, Gedge set his sights and his vocal chords high here with some falsetto notes in places.
Not sure it works to be honest but I love his bravery in trying. Gedge co-wrote this song with Simon Cleave and his distinctive playing dominates the instrumental sections with some lovely Spanish guitar twanging. There are some beautiful strings that swing us along and Kari Paavola added his flare to the percussion. Please note: there are also bongos! Questions and Answers with David Gedge:. The Torino version changes a fair bit from the earlier Peel Session.
So we brought in Mat Pharaoh to play bongos and Duncan Bridgeman to add a killer flute solo over the end section. Neither Simon Cleave [or John Peel! The song comes from a very unusual viewpoint of a man wanting his partner to keep her affair hidden better.
I heard exactly what you said but I know that he slept in Get Smart - Cinerama - Torino bed You should really take more care because all it took was a single hair.
And did you really think I might not find out where you were last night? But as you say, give him credit for having the guts to try it.
