Cover of Thirty Thousand Feet Over China

From Thirty Thousand Feet Over China and 37 other releases

The lyrics for “I’m in Love with a German Film Star” were written by Barbara Gogan about a one time roadie for The Clash and the Sex Pistols named Steve Connelly who had minor roles in several German films. It was produced by Pete Wilson who was the in house producer for Polydor Records. According to Wilson “It was a song that almost seemed to write itself”. The music weeklies declared the song “Single of the Week” while it was named “Peoples Choice” on Capital Radio. This lead to two Top of the Pops appearances. Polydor did not press enough copies of the single which topped out at number 25 position on the UK singles charts.
