"Solomon Gundie" is a song by French singer Amanda Lear released in 1980 by Ariola Records.

Song information[edit]

"Solomon Gundie" was originally recorded by Jamaican ska singer Eric "Monty" Morris in the first half of the 1960s. Amanda Lear released her cover version only in a 7" single format in 1980, between her Diamonds for Breakfast and Incognito albums. The disc bears "Sintas" as the author of the song. The track appeared to be a minor hit in Germany, having reached Top 40, where it was performed in a number of television shows. In 2005 "Solomon Gundie" made a release on Paris by Night – Greatest Hits, a double CD hits collection, in an edited version.
