Weird songs often come out of nowhere. And this is no different. A song has recently been released by a little heard Swedish group called Tex Glitter on their new album - Walk of Shame. The song is entitled "No Country like Abu Dhabi". That's bizarre in its own right because Abu Dhabi is not a country, it's an Emirate. I'm not sure what they are trying to say - maybe, as a country single, there is no country music in Abu Dhabi - or maybe it is actually saying that Abu Dhabi is not a country. Inspired lyrics, I'm sure - "under du desert skies, du camels run wild, du road goes on for ever, tru du desert sand". The track gets even weirder once you get to 2 minutes 10 with some experimentation with Arabic type background. Who knows - maybe this will be the hit of the summer? And perhaps it will be the surprise choice to be played prior to this year's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Stranger things have happened.
Sing with me now: "no derz no, derz no country, like abu dabby". I guarantee you, you will be humming it unexplainedly later today.
