Formed in Dublin in 1988 An Emotional Fish signed to U2's Mother record label and released a couple of singles that did well for them locally. Celebrate though got some attention in the UK and US on College Radio and although their self-titled debut album reached #40 in the UK Chart it's sales in the US were pretty disappointing.
I still think this single sounds great and the Italian cover of it sounds hilarious!
Celebrate - A Emotional Fish
UK Charts #46
Irish Charts #10
An Emotional Fish must have made a few bucks off of Celebrate over the years since Vasco Rossi released a version of it in Italian called Gil Spari Sopra as a single and the title of his 1993 album (it went Platinum 10 times!).
Someone has cleverly posted a video containing both songs: Watch Here.
There's also a live version from 2012 that's worth checking out. Watch Here.
