Shake your head - Was (not was)

Was (Not Was) biggest claim to fame is the hit single 'Walk the dinosaur', a hideous late-eighties top 10 hit which made me cringe everytime I heard it. 'Shake your head' was a more interesting, albeit less successful song. At least, in the Netherlands: in the UK it was their biggest hit. Was it the video starring Kim Basinger that did the trick? It certainly did for me: that's why it stuck in my head and that's why I wanted to buy it. It was the time in which 7" singles were getting increasingly difficult to find, and so buying this one was one of my minor triumphs during that time.

My collection: 7" single no. 1689
Found: Melody Maker, Den Haag, August 1, 1992
Cost: 6,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Shake your head' / 'I blew up the United States'
