All you Dopers seem especially good at identifying rare and obscure songs, so it has come time for me to take my turn in asking you for help. There are two parody songs from the early 80’s that I used to hear on Dr. Demento all the time, but unfortunately I have no idea who sang them, which makes searching for them on AuGxy a futile experience.
The first was called “Falklands!” and was based on J. Geils Band’s “Freeze-Frame” which was a big hit at the time (which coincided, ironically enough, with the Falklands War.) You’d think that would be enough criteria to find out more info, but a Google search for “Falklands J. Geils parody song” only turns up another person searching for the same damn song!!!
The second was called “Pac-Man” and was a parody of Rod Stewart’s “Passion”. I’m totally stumped on this one.
