Something's Cooking In The Kitchen
by Dana

Album: The Girl Is Back (1979)
Charted: 44


  • In the March 3, 1979 issue of the British music newspaper Sounds, reviewer Giovanni Dadomo said of this song: "It's amusing, yes, but spoilt by some ugly gruff-voiced chap's silly interjections".

    He might have added that what was cooking was clearly turkey, which is really a little ironic when one considers the way the very same lady laid into Dustin The Turkey thirty years later. But then, he probably didn't see the video Dana made for this truly awful culinary misadventure of half-baked puns, in which her lip synching is so bad she makes Britney Spears look good.
  • "Something Cooking In The Kitchen" is credited to D. Jordan, was produced by Lynsey de Paul collaborator Barry Blue, and was released on GTO Records backed by "Slip Away". If only it would. >>
