Is "Je Suis Un Rock Star" the strangest song from the 80s?


Bill Wyman

While "Je Suis Un Rock Star" by Bill Wyman might be considered an odd song, it is far from the strangest song of the 80s. The 1980s were a decade of experimentation and boundary-pushing in music, and plenty of songs were far more unusual. For example, the 80s saw the rise of genres like new wave, synthpop, and industrial music, which often incorporated unconventional sounds and lyrics. Several artists, such as Grace Jones, Klaus Nomi, and Tom Waits, were known for their offbeat personas and performances. Some examples of songs that could be considered even stranger than "Je Suis Un Rock Star" include:

  • "Fish Heads" by Barnes & Barnes is a bizarre novelty song featuring lyrics about fish heads and an equally strange music video.

  • "Big Time" by Peter Gabriel is a surreal and theatrical song with a music video that features Gabriel as a giant businessman.

  • "Weird Science" by Oingo Boingo is a song inspired by the 1985 film of the same name, with lyrics about creating a woman using science.

  • "Institutionalized" by Suicidal Tendencies is a punk/metal song with spoken-word verses about feeling trapped and misunderstood.

So while "Je Suis Un Rock Star" might be memorable for its catchy chorus and French lyrics, it is not the strangest song of the 80s by a long shot.
