I wish I was a boy again With my life spread before me You should have known me then They were sunny days of love and friends.

Slice Me Nice is the debut single by German singer-songwriter Fancy, released in 1984, under the label Metronome Records. Interviewed for the book Europe’s Stars of ’80s Dance Pop: 32 International Music Legends Discuss Their Careers, Segieth explained how the song came about: Todd heard my demo tape of “Slice Me Nice”.

The tape had the whole melody (intro, verses, bridge and chorus), the bass line, and the instrumental riff as well. I asked him to play all my melody tracks on a four-track tape, and I said to him, ‘Write me a funny, crazy, power-disco-nonsense story!’.

He brought me the words ‘slice-me-nice’. Very crazy indeed. Todd’s wife had just had a baby. I gave my composition as a gift to Todd—he worked fast for me on the lyrics, and he did a very good job. I was not thinking of the money; it wasn’t all about the money for me. Well, we went to Arco Studios in Munich, and we listened to the playback with all my melody riffs and my base line.

Than I sang his lyrics. The final mix was played one week later in Hamburg for Intersong (Warner/Chappell) Publishing. The executives there said, ‘Give us the tape, and in 24 hours we will bring you a deal’. The next day, I received the confirmation—Metronome Records would release “Slice Me Nice”. — Manfred Segieth
