Entering the ARIA Charts at Number 92 of February 20, 1994, alternative rock band You Am I released the song Berlin Chair from their 1993 album Sound As Ever.
Berlin Chair sat in the charts for 9 weeks, reaching a peak of 73, but reached as high as Number 3 on the Top 20 Alternative Charts.
The distinct sound of Berlin Chair and the cold opening lines of:
If half of what I’m saying / of what I’m saying is true
makes the track penned by frontman Tim Rogers a signature piece of alternative Australian rock in the mid to late 90s. To compliment the tune, the ultra-cheap music video of a one-shot camera recording in a warehouse of a small gentleman in a glittering silver suit dancing away (“P.J.” the Boxer), a sultry dancer and a quick cameo by the actual band jamming away, make it all worthwhile to enjoy the 2 minutes and 30 seconds of bliss.
