Agadoo doo doo...

Good old Black Lace. Try it after a couple of pints! I confess to singing along to this, doing all the movements and having a thoroughly good time more than once. I'm quite happy to confess to this as you don't know me and we're not likely to meet!

All together now - 

"Agadoo doo doo, push pineapple shake the tree
Agadoo doo doo, push pineapple grind coffee..."

Interviewed in 1984, Colin Routh of Black Lace, said:

"Our manager found Superman in Europe. It was a hit there some time back. And one night we were playing in a nightclub and someone came to us and said is Agadoo going to be your next single? We thought it was the name of a disease or something. Anyway, he explained it was a record by the Saragossa Band, made for the people at Club Mediterranean, the holiday firm. It's also been a hit in Germany a couple of times, originally being released in 1967. So we thought it was a good idea to do an up-to-date version of it."

Thanks, lads!

In 1986, Spitting Image took revenge with the Chicken Song.
