Subject: Nina and Fredrick
From: Dave the Gnome
Date: 01 Oct 01 - 06:16 AM

A totaly unrelated thread reminded me of this. A couple of weeks back on the radio they played a song by Nina and Frederik.

The anouncer then went on to tell quite an amazing story about the couple. Their marriage was, apparantly, a fairy tale romance of the 50's. He was the crown prince (or some such) of somewhere and she was considered to be the most beatiful model from Sweden. Their marriage was the talk of Europe and Scandinavia at the time and the fact that they went on, in the 1960's, to be musical celebreties with lots of TV time was the icing on the cake.

The marriage did not last unfortunately and after their split Nina had some measure of sucess as an actress. Frederik, however, became involved in some very shady activities and some years later was shot dead in Havana during a drug deal!

I have been unble to corroborate this and it could be a result of bad memeory, poor hearing, mis-information or all three - the old grey cells aint what they used to be:-(

Anyone know any more?

Cheers

Subject: Lyr Add: THE WORM SONG (from Nina and Frederik)
From: Jon Freeman
Date: 01 Oct 01 - 07:47 AM

No idea Dave... but thinking Nina and Frederik, I'm pretty sure I learned this from one of thier records - b side to Puff the Magic Dragon.

The Worm Song

The earth it was damp with the dew of the dawn
And sweet scented air hung over the lawn
A handome young worm popped up from the ground
Looking up from his hole he gazed all around

Just then as he stared at the sun in the sky
Another little worm popped up quite near by
Said the first with a squiggle "You're a trim little worm"
"Why not wriggle up hear and we'll go for a squirm"

"If you'd only agree to a brief rendezvous
I would love to surrender my heart just for you
I would build you a home and I'd treat you with care
And happy we'd be as the birds in the air"

Then the trim little worm gave a shake of its head
As it sadly replied "I would love to be wed"
But I fear we can't marry though I know you'd be true
For you see Mr Worm, I'm the other end of you".

Got this from Hollywood.com:

Nina Van Pallandt

Biography
This striking actress is best known for her roles in the films of Robert Altman. A folk singer who toured Europe with fellow performer Baron Frederik Van Pallandt (to whom she was later married for a period), the Danish-born Van Pallandt made her film debut in Altman's neo-film noir "The Long Goodbye" (1973). She has played leads in a handful of obscure international films and contributed offbeat supporting performances to Paul Schrader's "American Gigolo" (1980) as well as lesser Altman fare such as "Quintet" (1979) and "O.C. and Stiggs" (1987). Van Pallandt earned a degree of notoriety for her romantic involvement with Clifford Irving, whose faked biography of Howard Hughes landed him in prison.

Dunno about Frederik!

Your right, Dai - scary stuff indeed! Continuing my ongoing quest for knowledge that no-one else needs I came across "Nina & Frederik | Sucu Sucu (DB 4632) | 7 inch | tld7847" on Amazon.co.uk.

Now then. Here is another question. I think I can vaguely remember this song (or one with a very similar title) being the theme for a 60's TV series called 'Secret Service'. The song had a calypso beat - which Nina and Frederik did use quite a lot and I can remember a female voice on it. The opening of the TV show was scenes from a tropical beach i think.

Does anyone else remember this? Was it british or American? Am I totaly loopy? Or just completely bored?

Dave etc.

I have the sheet music of "Sucu Sucu", which was indeed the theme music from the William Franklyn TV series "Secret Agent".

Following the "scary" link above takes you to the website of a N&F tribute duo, which is indeed scary, but does have an additional link to a newly released CD of the original N&F's greatest hits. Unfortunately, it looks as though some prat has mixed it so that every other track is a Christmas Carol! Fine within the octave of Christmas, but I can see many people ripping their own CD, omitting the Carols (or, maybe, the secular stuff, according to taste and conviction).

Apparently he was shot in 1994:

"The first of the major featured guests on Dave's Place were Nina and Frederik, who attained popularity in Europe during the folk era with their soft, often calypso and spiritual-styled approach to their music. In their two appearances on Dave's Place they performed six songs including one about a worm that fell in love with itself and the popular children's song Mockingbird. Frederik was a descendant of Danish royalty (real name Baron Frederik Jan Gustav Floris Van Pallandt). He married Nina Moller in 1960 but they were divorced in 1975. Nina had some subsequent success in American films. Frederik later married a Spanish artist, Maria de los Rios Coello de Portugal, but he was shot dead at Puerto Gallera in the Philippines many years later in 1994."

Secret Agent was Friday - I was always despatched for the chips immediately before it. This annoyed me considerably as I really liked the theme tune and I frequently missed it. And there wasn't so much nice music around in those days - so you really valued the little snatches of what music there was.

Two programmes in one, manitas in work!

Juke Box Jury was the BBC show hosted by David Jacobs with four 'celebrity' panellists. They had a choice of either Hit or Miss, and in the event of a draw, some audience members had a hit/miss sign to hold up and that gave the casting votes.

Over on ITV it was Thank Your Lucky Stars, presented by Brian Matthews, where there was a spot for new releases with marks out of five, and the audience were invited to comment on them.

It was a TYLS audience member called Janice who came up with the immortal phrase, "(Oi wouldn't boi it meself, but) oi'll give it foive," and became a regular to say what she thought (including her 'catch phrase' as often as possible, of course).

That was about all the pop music we got on TV back then!

It was the title theme of the British secret agent TV series, "Top
Secret", which was broadcast in the USA in 1961 and 1962. The action
took place in Argentina, thus the South American flavoured theme.

The title theme's original name was "Sucu Sucu", composed by Tarateno
Rojas and Ren Jan Van Hoogten. The English vocal version had the
title "Step Right Up (And Say You Love Me)", though it is known as
"Sucu Sucu"; the British lyricists were Ray Maxwell and Phil Belmonte.
It was played by the Laurie Johnson and his Orchestra, the same who
later also did the famous title theme for the British TV series "The
Avengers". The single became a 1961 Top 10 hit in the UK, peaking at
#9 on 30 Sep 1961.

This YouTube recording has actual video of Nina and Frederik (not just an album cover) from the 1958 movie Verdens rigeste pige. They're billed as "Lisa and Jacque" - I don't quite figure why, but I'm guessing it's a movie about fictitious folkies and they're the main characters.
If you speak Danish, you can find a summary of the plot here (click). The English title of the film is The Richest Girl in the World described on one Website as "Farcical musical comedy, describing hectic courtship between poor little rich girl and a calypso singer." Whatever the case, it's a good example of their singing.

That EP was amongst the first that my parents bought, along with Harry Belafonte in Carnegie Hall (with Odetta and the Chad Mitchell Trio - incl. John Denver at the time). Ah - that was in the days where our whole family would sit together and listen to music.

I met Nina in 1989 when she lived on the Island of Ibiza. Is she still there? She was done up in the standard uniform of headscarf and big dark glasses favoured by famous people who don't want to be approached (comedy actress Paula Wilcox adopted similar garb when wishing to drink undisturbed in the country pubs around MIddlewich). Also living close by was actor Denholm Elliott.
Enough name-dropping....
Anyway, I always loved N&F's songs, particularly 'Listen To The Ocean' which is one of those songs capable of conjuring up lovely images in the mind.
And regarding the 'Oi'll Give it Foive' girl, I used to regularly win bets on the name of the show she appeared on. Ninety-nine people out of a hundred would say it was 'Juke Box Jury'. I proved my point by writing to Thames TV and asking the question, using their letter of reply as proof.

Prince Frederick was indeed murdered in Puerto Galera in the Philippine in 1994. It was probably a contract killing over either a yacht or a drugs deal. A certain Englishman long resident in the Philippines, with a checkered career, who dealt in yachts and arms was rumoured to be behind the deal but was conveniently out of the country at the time. He was subsequently picked up in Hong Kong on other charges that looked like a set up to get him given they couldn't prove his involvement in the Frederick affair. He was jailed in Stanley prison in HK and transferred to the UK before the handover to China. He was subsequently released and is back living in the Philippines.

Does anyone know the name of the South African enfant terrible of the theatre, who was briefly married to Nina and what has become of him?

I remember back in black and white mists of childhood memory it was either Sunday Night at the London Palladium or it was another Royal Variety Performance where Nina and Frederik did send up of 'Baby it's Cold Outside' singing it in the way it would be sung in the stereotype character of different countries. Frederik did a perfect send up of a reserved English gentleman and it is the one and only time that he ever made me giggle.

This thread appears old, but if anyone is still there, I'm trying to work out the second chord in the melody of 'Listen to the Ocean'. I can get away with a 7th, but has anyone got the proper sequence?
