    A. Angelucci: Coffee beans

    by phil_uk_net Written Oct 17, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Almost next door to Bar Italia, A. Angelucci is a specialty coffee bean shop made famous in a track from the first Dire Straits album - Wild West End. They only sell the raw product but if you want to sample the coffee go along to Bar Italia and ask for a Mokital, Angelucci's secret coffee blend.
    Wild West End by Dire Straits

    "Stepping out to Angelucci's for my coffee beans
    Checking out the movies and the magazines
    Waitress she watches me crossing from the barocco bar
    I'm getting a pickup for my steel guitar
    I saw you walking out shaftesbury avenue
    Excuse me talking I wanna marry you
    This is seventh heaven street to me
    Don't be so proud
    You're just another angel in the crowd
    And I'm walking in the wild west end
    Walking with your wild best friend

    And my conductress on the number nineteen
    She was a homey
    Pink toenails and hands all dirty with money
    Greasy hair easy smile
    Made me feel nineteen for a while

    And I went down to chinatown
    In the backroom it's man's world
    All the money go down
    Duck inside the doorway gotta duck duck to eat
    Right now fells alright now
    You and me we can't beat

    And a gogo dancing girl yes I saw her
    The deejay he say here's Mandy for ya
    I feel alright to see her
    But she's paid to do that stuff
    She's dancing high I move on by
    The close ups can get rough
    When you're walking in the wild west end"

    What to buy: Coffee beans - whole or ground.
