Inga Humpe is a German singer and composer; she is one of the best-known musicians of the German new wave movement. In the late 1970’s she founded the punk band Neonbabies. During the late 1980’s she moved to England and worked on the ” Fall of the Wall ” project with other international artists.
” Golden Boy ” was released in October 1995 by record label Ariola Records ( now part of Sony Music Entertainment ) and taken as the second single from Sin With Sebastian’s debut Album of the same name.
The song is about being the best and a particular type of lifestyle, it focuses on life as being fun-loving and feeling unique and the best. Additional vocals are by opera singer Donna Lynn Bowers. Donna also features as the vocalist on Sin With Sebastian’s European hit single ” Shut Up (and sleep with me) “.
The accompanying music video shows Sebastian’s face surrounded by fruit such as bananas, apples and strawberries. He is also shown sitting on a gold throne wearing a gold coloured suit. The clips are mixed in with Donna Lynn Bowers holding a baby while singing ” Golden boy ” and half-naked male dancers cavorting around her. The video also shows religious paintings with faces removed and replaced with Donna’s.
Sin With Sebastian couldn’t match the success of ” Shut Up (and sleep with me) “. The song made number 3 in Finland where it spent three weeks on the chart there, elsewhere in Europe it failed to impact charts.
After the success of ” Shut Up (and sleep with me) ” and following the not so successful second single ” Golden Boy “, sin with Sebastian has become known as a one-hit wonder.
