BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983
Remember KId Creole & The Coconuts? In 1983, these lovely trio of Coconuts released a dance version of “If I Only Had A Brain” from the classic movie, “The Wizard Of Oz”.
This song was produced by Kid Creole himself, August Darnell.
Unfortunately, their version failed to enter Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, settling for a peak position at #108 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under chart.
This was their 2nd single from their album, “Don’t Take My Coconuts”. Their 1st single, “Did You Have To Love Me Like You Did”, never charted in the US, but did peak at #60 on the UK charts.
