Fathers Day lost and found: Adrian Belew 'Oh Daddy!'
While Adrian Belew has been honored in 2009 in the SIT80’s blog before by guest blogger Douglas "The General" Arthur for his contributions to '80s recordings, it is only fitting that on Father’s Day Weekend we add 1989’s Oh Daddy to the Lost and Found catalog.
Oh Daddy is a fun father-daughter duet in which his Adrian’s daughter, Audie, questions when, if ever, her dad will get that elusive hit single. With art imitating life, Oh Daddy did hit the charts, but only made it to No. 58, leaving Audie to keep wondering when her dad will hit the big time.
If you want to see what Audie looks like now, she’s out there on Facebook still rooting for her dad. Adrian is still making wonderful weird noises with his guitar.
