    I had this record more than 10 years and never really played it or thought too much about it 'til this week when I suddenly started puzzling over the bizarre title and decided to investigate a bit further.
    After reading the lyrics and watching the clip from 'WWF Club', I can honestly say it's one of the weirdest commercially released Italo-disco records of all time, not least that it was released by one of the most successful and high profile Italo artists and on the biggest Italo label, Discomagic Records.

    For your consideration, the lyrics:

    "Before the Russian revolution a man from downtown Vladivostok
    Made the number one worldwide hamburger multinational holding
    Here it is all for you - Trotsky Burger"

    Babe when the sun comes down
    You've got to meet me in town
    Love let the children cry
    Just leave your mother sigh

    Fresh meat, all vitamins now
    Coming from Siberia straight in your blood
    French fries, Caucase Cola, wow
    Snowpies vodka flavour, Vladivostok

    Trotsky Burger, guarantee new
    Trotsky Burger, gonna brainwash you too
    Trotsky Burger, take it away
    Trotsky Burger, 24 hours a day

    Dad can't you see my hand
    You've got to understand
    Red doesn't mean you're dead
    The waitress is good in bed

    Fresh meat, all vitamins now
    Coming from Siberia straight in your blood
    French fries, Caucase Cola, wow
    Snowpies vodka flavour, Vladivostok

    Trotsky Burger, guarantee new
    Trotsky Burger, gonna brainwash you too
    Trotsky Burger, take it away
    Trotsky Burger, 24 hours a day


    From Gazebo himself, these are his musings on the track:

    "It’s one of my biggest, if not THE biggest flop.

    The idea came from nowhere like most of my ideas, memories from the Russian revolution and the reality of those countries 25 years ago .. These people had to queue for hours for some bread and wait for decades to have a Trabant (a cardboard car) .. I saw these things and couldn’t stay careless …

    Many say the song was the first or among the first techno tracks ever"
