Harpo – My Teenage Queen
Harpo – My Teenage Queen/ I Don’t Know Why – EMI 4E 006-35115 (1974 Sweden)
Prior to his more widely known Peter Sarstedt/ om-pah band hit Moviestar, Sweden’s Harpo (née Jan Svensson) released this Neanderthal Glam Thumping Cruncher to little effect in ’74. Perhaps the fact that the lyrics have him lusting after a 15 year old Teenage Queen curtailed his chances of a worldwide hit, but today they would more likely get him listed on the S O register. The track is great though, perhaps only a killer guitar break short of making the top grade. Still what a scary looking guy… Leo Sayer meets Skeletor anyone? ANYONE????
