MP3: Karel Fialka / Hey Matthew
Okay now this song has absolutely no relation to any of the aims of my blog, but I decided to put it up because it's one of the most random things i've ever heard in my life. My friend Matt sent it to me, explaining that he had heard it when he was little and always thought it was about him. He's strange like that. Before you read any further, consider the boys look of fear on the front cover. I'm not sure I'd like to meet Karel Fialka, even now.
Anyway according to this website, Karel Fialka was born in India to a Czechoslovakian father and a Scottish mother. Perhaps this explains his complete and utter insanity, as perfectly demonstrated in this song. It came out in 1988 and was his biggest hit (but don't worry, I won't blame you if you haven't heard it). Apparently, 'Karel is still recording and also producing other bands as well as himself. He has been at work on his third album for sometime which should be with us soon.' I can hardly wait. Here are some highlights for you to listen out for:
Listen and it'll make sense. Then you'll realise that this could possibly be the greatest song ever recorded. To paraphrase that website, 'Take your "hats off" and [enjoy] the unique & powerful music of KAREL FIALKA!'
