DIE LUCKY STARS, Ananas, 1961Posted: August 26, 2010
“I don´t want bananas and I don´t want oranges. All I wish for is pineapples. It is a treat, almost as sweet as a kiss. From morning to night, all I want is pinapples, pineapples, pineapples.”
Exotic fruit like pineapple (Ananas) was still a big deal in 1961 in Germany so it was only logical to have the Lucky Stars dedicate a whole song to this new sensation. I couldn´t find any information about these girls or about the original version of the song. Is it Phil Harvey´s Willy Boy song recorded by Phil Spector for Imperial in 1959?
All I know is that if I would be in advertising today and needed a song to sell pineapple, I´d use this one…
