Alexander Curly (echte naam: Harm Douwe Breemer) wordt in 1946 geboren in Haarlem. Hij werkt eerst als steward bij de KLM en speelt in de jaren '60 in de band De Maestro's.

In 1972 gaat hij solo en wordt hij opgepikt door Chiel Montagne. Hij scoort prompt een nummer 1-hit met I'll Never Drink Again, dat het twee weken bovenaan volhoudt. In 1973 volgen drie Tipparade-noteringen, maar in 1975 is het weer raak: het Nederlandstalige Guus (over koeien die op springen staan) eindigt eveneens op 1 (drie weken).

In 1976 wordt Curly onderscheiden met de Zilveren Harp.

Halverwege jaren '80, met vijf hits en evenveel Tipparade-noteringen op zak, keert Curly de muziekwereld de rug toe. In 2012 wordt bekend dat hij op 4 juni is overleden aan prostaatkanker.

Songtekst

{transcribed by Lidwien Engel-Ligtvoet, 04-08-2013}

Have you ever been to 42nd street
without noticing the mess is complete
it's like Sodom is newborn
on sex and on popcorn
where I was no one
and no one was someone

Well I made my appointment with Samuel's
advising store on the 30th floor
where his rabbit toothed secretary
asked if she could help me
I said may'be, probably

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere
Curly, Samuel said so, shure thing Curly, yeah
Somebody, sometimes, somewhere
Curly, Samuel said so, shure thing Curly, yeah

There is blood on the road
and blood on my car
The dust is cold and it creeps as far
till my eyes can't see yes I agree anyway,
since I heard Samuel say
Samuel said live your 30 years then starve
and forget about the rest
well that's the best

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere
Curly, Samuel said so, shure thing Curly, yeah
Somebody, sometimes, somewhere
Curly, Samuel said so, shure thing Curly, yeah

He gave me this book to read
The whole world is 42nd street
where the mess is complete
and there's no need to be hopeful
well thank you Samuel, guess I'll be doing quite well
thank you
thank you
thank you
thank you Samuel

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere Curly, shure thing
Samuel said so, shure thing Curly,

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere Curly, shure thing
Samuel said so, shure thing Curly,

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere Curly,
Samuel said so, shure thing Curly, shure thing

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere

someone, someway, something, no one

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere

someone, someway, something, no one

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere

someone, someway, something, no one yeah

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere

someone, someway, something, no one

Somebody, sometimes, somewhere

someone, someway, something, no one
