Elton Motello "Jet Boy Jet Girl" 1977

German TV 1977. Check out the insane comedy clips that pop up throughout this. Belgian Plastic Bertrand slightly toned down the insane amount of mincing, altered the lyrics and released this as "Ca Plane Pour Moi" (The Life For Me) which became a huge hit in 1978. His version was also featured in "National Lampoon's European Vacation" He used the same backing group as Elton Motello which is why the two versions sound so similar. This is the original. The Damned covered this version.

I always wondered what was up with the Damned version. I just figured they were making fun of Plastic Bertrand. Thanks for posting, what a trip.
