I was looking at a site the lists No 1 singles in the UK, I remeber this song SHADDUP YOU FACE being a huge hit in the UK and spawing the annoying catchphase 'SHADDUP YOU FACE' as annoying response to almost anything. Even now you still some times hear people say it.
Was this a hit in the USA/Rest of the world or are you guys not even aware of it?

If you don't know this song at all you really need to hear it do get a feel for how it sounds, I can only descirbe it has a guy the a strong Italian accent(almost comedy accent)

It was good fun......

JOE DOLCE MUSIC THEATRE


SHADDUP YOU FACE - 21/02/1981
3 weeks at #1 - 10 weeks on chart

'Allo, I'm-a Giuseppe, I got-a something special-a for you, ready
Uno, duo, tre, quatro
When I was a boy, just about the eighth-a grade
Mama used to say don't stay out-a late
With the bad-a boys, always shoot-a pool
Giuseppe going to flunk-a school

Boy, it make-a me sick, all the t'ing I gotta do
I can't-a get-a no kicks, always got to follow rules
Boy, it make-a me sick, just to make-a lousy bucks
Got to feel-a like a fool and-a mama used to say all-a time

What's-a matter you Hey! Gotta no respect
What-a you t'ink you do? Why you look-a so sad
It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place
Ah, shaddap-a you face

That's-a my mama, I can remember
Big accordion solo
Ah! Play dat again, Really nice, really nice

Soon-a come-a day, gonna be a big-a star
Den I make-a TV shows and-a movies
Get-a myself a new car, but still I be myself
I don't want-a to change a t'ing, still a-dance and a-sing
I t'ink about-a mama, she used to say

What's-a matter you Hey! Gotta no respect
What-a you t'ink you do Why you look-a so sad
It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place
Ah, shaddap-a you face

Mama, she said it all-a da time
What's-a matter you Hey Gotta no respect
What-a you t'ink you do Why you look-a so sad
It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place
Ah, shaddap-a you face
That s-a my mama

Hello, everybody!
'At's out-a dere in-a radio and-a TV land
Did you know I had a big-a hit-a song in-a Italy with-a disc
Shaddap-a you face
I sing-a dis-a song, all-a my fans applaud
Dey clap-a da hands, dat-a make me feel-a so good
You ought to learn-a dis-a song, it's-a real-a simple
See, I sing: what's-a matter you You sing Hey
Den I sing-a da rest and den at de end, we can all-a sing:
Ah, Shaddap-a you face! O.k., let's-a try it, really big

Uno, duo, tre, quatro
What's-a matter you Hey Gotta no respect Hey
What-a you t'ink you Hey do Why you look-a so sad Hey
It's-a not so bad Hey it's-a nice-a place
Ah, shaddap-a you face
OK one more-a time for mama
What's-a matter you Hey Gotta no respect Hey
What-a you t'ink you Hey do Why you look-a so sad Hey
It's-a not so bad Hey it's-a nice-a place
Ah, shaddap-a you face

Joe Dolce was an Aussie comedian. It was a big hit here as well, but I don't remember hearing anything of him after this.
