Elton Motello vs Plastic Bertrand

Elton Motello was the pseudonym of singer- songwriter Alan Ward who released the single ‘Jet Boy, Jet Girl’ on the Belgian record label Pinball in 1977.

The exact same backing track was simultaneously used by the Belgian performer Plastic Bertrand – which was a pseudonym of musician, songwriter, producer, editor and television presenter Roger François Jouret – on his mega-hit single ‘Ça plane pour moi.’ Bizarrely the actual vocals on that particular recording were performed by the co-composer Lou Deprijck, so I’m a tad confused at to what ‘Bertrand’ himself actually did! Anyway, have a listen to both and see which one tickles your fancy!
