The Bangkok variations
"Here's a little thing that's gonna please ya/ Just a little town down in Indonesia"
When I was a teenager my favourite song was 'Bangkok' by
. Cos it's way hot.
Alex isn't on Youtube and you have to pay to download the music thing (only 19 cents though) but here are two cover versions I found for free
The Dum-Dum Boys
(warning - french rock band)
Those are both quite tough versions; in the original Alex sounds like he's fainting.
I know Bangkok isn't in Indonesia
Here's a little thing that's gonna please ya
Just a little town down in Indonesia
Two slanty eyed men lyin' in bed
One got his Mauser, the other said
Makin' love the Japanese way
Learned aggressively in Hong Kong
Marga-ret Tru-deau, Jackie O.
Madame Nhu and Brigitte Bardot
I'm not livin' on Chinese rocks
Here's a revision that's kinda minor
It's just a little town down in Indochina
Alex when he was about 16, cute as anything, look a bit like Syd Barrett.
