    Good question, RITZ.

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    Taco scored his one and only pop hit in 1982 with a faithful rendition of the Irving Berlin chestnut "Puttin' on the Ritz." Born Taco Ockerse in Jakarta, Indonesia on July 21, 1955, he recorded "Ritz" in Germany in 1981; a year later, the song (originally popularized by Fred Astaire) hit the upper reaches of the U.S. pop charts, accompanied by a video depicting the singer decked out in a bow-tie-and-tails ensemble emblematic of the Depression-era movie musicals his image strived to emulate. Taco's debut LP, After Eight, contained other recreations of 1930s hits, as well as original material in the same vein; however, the market for such stuff was clearly limited, and after a 1984 follow-up, Let's Face the Music, he disappeared from the charts for good. ~ Other releases were Swing Classics / In The Mood Of Glenn Miller in 1985 and Tell Me That You Like It in 1986 for Polydor. After a brief flirt with contemporary dance music (he even recorded a song for the famous Stock Aitken Waterman team in 1989) he repositioned himself as a swing/soul singer. He has collaborated with Geff Harrison of Kin Ping Meh fame.

    My brother was in elementary school when that song came out and had to perform a dance for music class. My parents actually bought him the album, not the single. I'm still convinced it was the only copy of that album sold in the U.S.

    Haha... "Welcome to the only website devoted to entertainer Taco Ockerse"

    I have to admit though, I've listened to his version of "Ritz" more than once.
