FAMW: Joe Dolce “Shaddup You Face”

When this writer read of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie getting into an argument with a Rutgers student over a planned merger with Rowan University, we were tempted to show another Christie video, but he doesn't come off so well in this one. Still, it doesn't matter. One of the commenters at brought our attention to this Italian-American favorite. Dolce was born in Painesville, Ohio, but has made his fortune in Australia. This is a clip from a television show he hosted in 1980, the year this song made number one on the pop charts in The Land Down Under.

What’sa matta you? (Hey!)
Got a no respect
What do you think you do?
Why you looka so sad
It’s a not so bad
It’s a nice a place
Ah, shaddapa you face.

We couldn't have said it better, at least not for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.
