Rats on a budget
This site appears to have something but you'll need a Polish friend to translate for you.

Thanks Rob but I don't think that is what I am looking for.
My wife wanted a recording of the song that she heard on the radio in the 1980s or 90s.
I am sure that this is a song that is sung in English.

I cant believe that no one has heard of this song but my wife.
It was one of the first vidieos she saw on mtv.

I cant believe that no one has heard of this song but my wife.
If it was on MTV, thats pretty unlikely;) You propably have the title somewhat wrong????

Yes the Matt Frewer Max Headroom introducing pop videos. Classics such as rats on a budget ~ get out of london ~ sensoria ~ out of the fire ~ germans ~ living in the usa and with all of Max's funny lines - the ones he speaks and the ones behind him!
Whatever happend to Tim the Producer?
What do you reckon Roy? Do you think Ch4 will release Max?

thanks steve

MTV amateur Video contest.
Early 80's MTV had an amateur video contest. You could not have a recording contract. The group that won the contest won with the video and song "Rats on a budget". I remember in the video they actually had hamburgers in hamburger buns with feet and tail hanging out. I liked the video and would like to see/hear it again.

Rats on a budget
This song was recorded by Heat N Serve, I have the video off the 80's Max Headroom show, its hilarious! I've not been able to find an audio copy of it though, would love to get one.

"We're Americans, you know we love junk food
The commercials..they make it sound so good
We'd buy more and more if...????
Though it might not taste the way they say it should.

You deserve a pest tastes better...Have it your way!
Our sandwiches, they only cost a dime and
We serve no pests...before its time

We say that Wendys, the Colonel, the Whopper and chicken McNuggets
Well there's no need to worry when you goin out to Rats on a Budget!

I love...rats on a budget.
Have one...with everything on it
You know...rats on a budget
Its time....time has finally come.

lyrics are not perfect or complete, oh well

I know the name of this woman :)
I know the name of this woman, who sings the song "Rats on the Budget"
Majka Jezowska - she is from Poland. She lived in USA from 1982 where she sung in the international clubs in NY, Chicago and L.A. She was married to Tom Logan - amer. guitarist. In 1984 on the Music festival in Saint Tropez - France her video clip "Rats... " won the Grand Prix. Since mid 1980 she sings for children, very popular songs she has. You can find about her on her web site but everything there is in Polish language, but you can contact her, I think she will write to you with pleasure, English is not a problem.
So..... good luck :) :cool:
