What happens when you unleash Boney M on a bunch of cute kids?
Pure Electro Magic.
I recently picked up a CD of Italodisco hits in the bargain bin section of the internet and my favorite song by far is “Happy Song” by Baby’s Gang. This song was a number one hit in Europe twice! The first time in 1983 for Baby’s Gang in their native Italy, the second time as a cover by Boney M the following year.
Information on Baby’s Gang is scant on the internet, sources say they were on Memory Records, a minorly succesful Italo-disco label. But if Italodisco means nothing to you, think of Baby’s Gang as:
(Justice’s D.A.N.C.E. – Michael Jackson) x (Outrunners + Kavinsky + Muscles)
Which should equal EPIC in anyone’s book.
A truly happy song for the weekend.
Here is the “Extended Dancefloor Version” in 320 for you DJ’s/mp3 hustlers, I guarantee it will bring the heat at your local party.
