Bananarama – Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on December 2nd, 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

“Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” is a song written and recorded by Paul Leka, Gary DeCarlo and Dale Frashuer, attributed to a then-fictitious band they named “Steam”.

In February 1983, UK girl group Bananarama released the song as the fifth single off their album Deep Sea Skiving. This version became a top ten hit in the United Kingdom (#5), but only a minor hit in the US (Billboard #101) later that year. In a sketch on the early 1980s comedy show Three of a Kind, Tracey Ullman spoofed Bananarama singing “Na Na Hey Hey” (as well as “Shy Boy”), with the words “We are nanas”.

    Loving the Banana streak, Paul! And I actually wouldn’t mind another week of it, though I know you don’t like to linger on one act too long. But if I had any say in the next eventual run, I’d vote for more Dead Or Alive, Eurythmics…or Prince, who’s a little underrepresented here. Actually, for a one-off, do you have Sting’s “Love Is The Seventh Wave”? The single version of that is elusive.

    Thank you, in any case! The ongoing surprise is half the fun.

    Nothing against this remake, but it stays true to the old adage “If you want a hit, release a cover version!”
    After the unfortunate hiccup that is Cheers Then, the ‘nana’s wisely got back on track with a more familiar tune and more cheery faces. And it doesn’t hurt that the title has some Na-Na’s in it too.
    This MEGA ‘nana spotlight here can go on and on, and seems like no one is complaining!
    Thank you Paul!
    Happy Weekend!

    You’re welcome Ric. I am only going to post one or more in this Nanas series i will post more later on in time. Have a great weekend.

    ric Reply:

    Only one more left? That’s Cruel as Summer! LOL!
    But I guess all good things must come to an end…
    Plus, I’m glad there’s a second installment planned somewhere down the Burning The Ground road.
    I’m sure Robert De Niro will be Waiting…so will many of us here!
