Album


Born To Laugh at Tornadoes is a 1983 album by the art-funk band Was Not Was. Rolling Stone declared it conceptually, the best album of the year shortly after its release. It did manage to become the band's first release to make it onto Billboard's album chart, peaking at 134 in a nine-week stay in the fall of 1983. The Was brothers provide a strange bunch of songs with irresistible dance beats, plus an array of guest singers that is, well, unusual to say the least: Mitch Ryder, Doug Fieger of The Knack, Ozzy Osbourne, and, on the ballad Zaz Turned Blue, Mel Tormé.

Try it Not Was is a band that, in its heyday was considered odd, even in the 1980s, when everybody had a weirdo-gimmick. However, these guys were actual musicians, and were the REAL DEAL. This album debuted Out Come The Freaks which later appeared on their 2nd LP with a a new mix. A stand-out song is The Party Broke Up, featuring Don Was on kookoo-kreepy spoken vocals. Sweet Pea Atkinson fronts Knocked Down, Made Small Treated Like a Rubber Ball which is reminiscent of good old fashion Motown. In fact, Don Was once said in an interview, We would like t.

The tune "Shake Your Head (Let's Go To Bed)" originally recorded with Ozzy Osbourne and Madonna on vocals just feels like Was (Not Was) already had all the ingredients for happy piano house music back in 1983, way ahead of time! Steve "Silk" Hurley later remixed it in 1992 with Kim Basinger and Ozzy again on vocals.
AceBeaty The tune "Shake Your Head (Let's Go To Bed)" originally recorded with Ozzy Osbourne and Madonna on vocals just feels like Was (Not Was) already had all the ingredients for happy piano house music back in 1983, way ahead of time! Steve "Silk" Hurley later remixed it in 1992 with Kim Basinger and Ozzy again on vocals. An unknown Madonna sang on the original demo recording of Shake Your Head and it's Ozzy Osborne who sings on the 'released' Was (Not Was) album version.Much Later on... "Hi Madge, can we use your vocals on a new mix of that oldie of Ours ?"We can imagine what was said.Funny how the demo version with Madonna's vocals 'accidentally' managed to get pressed on the 12'' release ?
I can't BELIEVE the track "Shake Your Head" is from 1983. Don Was was truly ahead of his time. Seriously, did he have a time machine? This music was literally the shit in the early 90's and he did it 10 years earlier. Kicking myself for not buying this album today.
