David Scobie Gypsey GirlThis video by David Scobie of his hit-single, “Gypsey Girl” from way back in 1980 brings back so many good memories, including that of watching Sounds on Saturday on ZBC.

This original video of the song, shows a very young David, aged just fifteen wondering around Harare. The single was released in October 1980 and it went to No.1 in Zimbabwe that November, staying there for the next four months. It was then released in South Africa in April 1981 and it bounced up and down the Springbok charts for nineteen weeks. Gypsey Girl eventually went on to go Gold in both countries and David became an over-night celebrity.
