Is this song the epitome of Disco or what?! I can't get over the girl dancing in the video, it's priceless. I'm not quite sure why she is dressed like a parrot though.
I've always liked the cheesiness of this song and love a bit of disco every now and then. Hearing this track makes me reminisce of a time I was walking along the bustling humid side streets in Patong, Thailand with only one thing in mind....an ice cold Chang beer! How does anyone decide which bar to go into in Thailand? There are thousands of them, all similar in look and the only things that tell them apart are the names and the music. I heard this unashamedly blasting through speakers in one bar and knew that was the one for us! You couldn't get more random than Ottawan in one bar, techno next door, and some Thai bloke playing Dire Straits on the electric guitar next to that. We happily cooled off in the bar for a few drinks listening to Boney M and other disco classics. There is one thing I will say about bars in Thailand, they know how to look after their customers! You never have an empty glass and that was detrimental to my zombie like state later on. One night I had been drinking quick fire and just totally lost it, the motor was running but no one was behind the wheel! The bar owner immediately proceeded to revive me with a freezing cold damp towel on my arms, neck and face! It really did work like a miracle cure and I fully recommend it if you are ever having a whitey!
