HELLO! Thank you for making this song for me! I was born in 1973 in the USSR with the title The Empress of the Land of a thousand candles. I'm the TSARS BRIDE and the heiress of the TSAR NIKOLAY II, Empress Alexandra Fedorovna Romanova and their V chidlren! I'm also the heiress for the revolutionary names LENIN and STALIN, that are made from my biological grandmothers name AKULINA EMELIYANOVNA ZELENINA-SVECHINA in 1901-1912. I'm heiress for the House "33" on Chernishevskaya street in Serpuhov (1948-1966), that in 1967 inspired the restourant "33" in DISNEYLAND, in the USA. My grandmothers house "33" is famous as "The House of a kitchen children", from the law about the education "About the kitchen children education", that was signed by the TSAR ALEXANDER III in 1887. The kitchen chidlren are my mother NINA and my uncle VALERIY. Their mother, my grandmother TAMARA was a cook in Serpuhov in the USSR. I see fans of my book and film "LAST TRAIN FROM ROPPONGI" in this video! SWEET! Thank you very much! The tiger on the costume of the lead singer - is inspired by my father's Petr Nikitovich Svechin's zodiac. He was born in 1938 in the USSR, the year of the tiger. My father is also inspired the name for the TYATYA VULCANO in my IV Kuril islands KHIS! I would love to say "Hello!" to the band and their fans! Here is my news:

Several questions here. What is the song about? How did they make that Erie siren sound at the start of the song?

they ripped off Bowie's "Jean Genie"!

@Joe Anthony I'm not denying that at ALL, did you read the article I linked in the other reply? But the sentence YOU wrote implies , actually, it just outright says Sweet "ripped off" Bowie..which isn't the case, the songs came out in such a short space of each other, the reality is it was probably just a coincidence..with both of them basically using the famous riff , having the songs come out within only a week or two of each other (on the same label even) And Sweet reaching number one and Bowie number 2. So yeah i am being defensive, unless you care to change the way you worded your initial comment. Sweet always had to, and still has to , fight for respect and commenting "they ripped off Bowie's Jean Genie" is a shitty thing to say when it is so false.

@Foxy-On-the-Run Are you trying to tell me that basic-blues-riff, used by many artists in many various ways, is not similar to "Jean Genie", which came out within a year of each other? I'm not saying I have a problem with it, it just IS. Don't get all defensive over nothing.

OK, anyone sing Bowie's Jean Genie along with this riff -- Sweet kept Bowie off the #1 spot in Jan 1973 with this. Those were the days when nobody sued anyone else for obvious theft!! Great times.....

Great band. Shame the technology made them mime instead of being live. Just take a look at Andy trying to play with acres of trimmings hung around his fretboard. Still. Money in the bank and true to the times.... Luvvem...

Fuzzing out the Swastika on Steve's arm. How fucking petty. If it offends, put your thumb over it. Too many offended arseholes these days.
