He Got Lucky: Puttin’ on the Ritz by Taco

It’s September of 1983: Martina Navratilova wins her first Wimbledon, The Big Chill was king of the box office, Vanessa Williams is the first black Miss America, and the #4 song in America is… Puttin’ on the Ritz by Taco?? How and why did this song from the 1920s regain popularity in the 80s and should it have been such a huge hit? Tim and Q break down the interesting Dutch-Indonesian performer behind the song, the Dutch-Indonesian rock scene that he rose from, and the power behind MTV music video selections during that period, and, for the first time, they both agree: it should NOT have been a hit!
