One Hit Wonder – Haysi Fantayzee – Shiny Shiny.

Haysi Fantayzee was formed in 1981 and consisted of Jeremy Healy (also known as “Jeremiah”) and Kate Garner, who fronted the “band” and Garner’s boyfriend songwriter/producer/manager Paul Caplin. The band released four singles in 1982 and 1983: “John Wayne is Big Leggy”, “Holy Joe”, “Shiny Shiny”, and “Sister Friction”, and an album, Battle Hymns For Children Singing.

Jeremy Healy accused the singer known as Boy George (George O’Dowd) of stealing his infamous look. Boy George later addressed the issue: “When Jeremy saw my locks he was livid. Both he and Kim [Bowen] stopped speaking to me. They thought I had stolen their look. It wasn’t their look to steal…

Good times come to me now
Good times come to me now

I ain’t lying ’cause there ain’t no time
No city it’s a pity ’cause I dress divine
City smokes, people choke
Big meanie he’s a genie and we ain’t got a hope
No chance, no chance

Well, I feel fine, no it ain’t no crime
I was dreamin’ of a demon and I ate a dime
The dime floats, the colonel boasts
Send ’em up the hill boys, this ain’t no joke
No chance, no chance, no chance, no chance

Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny sha-na-na-na
Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny bad times behind me

Your sure look fine your shoes they shine
I taste your face your love is mine
Mercury Dan with a spikey hand
I’m a hot retard, marquis de sade
No chance, no chance, no chance, no chance

Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny bad times behind me

Saw a cop on the line, machine gun shine
I was dreaming not believing that I was alive
My mind broke, the cop he choked
Get out of here, boy, or I’ll use the colt

No chance, no chance
You sure look fine your shoes they shine
No heat can compete with this blue-eyed liar
The child spoke, “We ain’t got a hope press the button
Press the button, it’s all remote”
No chance, no chance, no chance, no chance

Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny bad times behind me
Shiny shiny bad times behind me
