Endicott - Kid Creole and the Coconuts

Kid Creole and the Coconuts had a comeback of sorts in 1985 with the single 'Endicott'. The Endicott described in the song is the personification of virtue: he doesn't drink, smoke or do drugs, he's always on time, always considerate, never fights... In short, he's everything that the singer of the song is not. The Coconuts jeer 'Why can't you be more like Endicott?'.

While the single did not chart in the UK, it reached number 21 in the Dutch Top 40.
