It played for weeks in the 1982 Great Ontario Talent Search. I loved the song. It was a spoof on Kraftwerk's TEE. The words included its likely title "Trans American Express," and the intro "Sit back, enjoy your flight..,"

What was the band's name? I hear "Hare/Hair Ebden."

My gratitudes for help and where I can get a copy of this song.


From Gina, 9/9/2003 9:06:46 AM:

The only clue that might help you is that "Ebden" sounds German. And "Herr" means Mister or Sir. As in Herr Schmitt or Herr Arnold Schwarzenegger, etc. But I have never heard of the group and all searches for Ebden have not come up with any music.

Hi !

...maybe "American Express" by Harry Thumann.
I know Harry Thumann plays electronic music

Great Satan, please contact me reguarding my Unknown Song- I was wondering if it matched up to the intro on the BoDeans song "Black White and Blood Red" I know the bassline fits, but what about the intro??



From Great Satan, 9/17/2003 8:07:42 PM:

Gina--Dang!! I never thought of that! and I should know better. Marek, I'm checking your suggestions out. Frayo--Ditto with the BoDeans. I'll let you know when I get the song.

Thanks for the interest and help people.

ebden is not german, tho the name is in central europe. it's anglo-saxon and means "valley where the rosehips grow". it's likely a U.K. or Aussie band, though possibly in South Africa too.

I'm sure it's Harry Thumann's American Express! He's from Munich/Germany and so am I!
