  • Lyrics
  • Written by front man Georg Kajanus, "A Glass Of Champagne" is a light-hearted song featuring some typical foolish romanticizing about the oldest profession in the world. The band's first release was a concept album based largely on the theme of sailors on shore leave, but this overtly commercial acoustic number is anything but an afterthought or leftover. It was released on the Epic label backed by "Panama", and can be said to be the song that established the band. >>

  • Sailor founding member Phil Pickett went on to play keyboards for Culture Club and co-penned their #1 hit, "Karma Chameleon."
