This song was made in 1983 when the rockabilly look was all the rage – I tried to have this look but my hair would never look as nice as Carmel’s hair. This song consequently reminds me of many bad hair days, rather than bad days in general, when I just could not get my hair to look right. She also had a great voice…
I once saw Carmel on a ferry to France when I was going to Paris. She and her band were very popular in France, perhaps because she was so pretty in that 1960’s nouvelle vague sort of way.
