YouTube Treasure: Eurodisco At Its Absolute Zaniest

Baccara is not a brand of unfinished crystal.

It was a Spanish female pop/disco duo who looked like Little Nell meets Pinky Tuscadero, and whose sound came off like half of ABBA--or maybe like all of Pink Lady--but with a lot more teeth and legs.

They're dressed here in skimpy pink beaded usherette costumes complete with naughty gold pumps, indulging in wacky choreography as they emit their girly vocals on some highly contagious nonsense syllables.

This clip (for their song "Venus") proves the title of their biggest hit, "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie".

They sure can--but they should probably have been on ice.

And it's quite possible they are, as they stomp, flail, and whinny around an Arctic looking sound stage.

Enjoy this batty exercise in synchronized inanity, but first a disclaimer:

You must check your mind at the door before watching it or it will surely rot along with your eyes and teeth.

In a good way.

Na na na na na na na na na.....

You compare them to the Brady Bunch kids, then say, "This is serious music"?

I didn't know that blog entries have now attained the status of articles. Or that Eurodisco had started sounding like an ass with full-blown diarrhea. I love them both anyways - blogs and Eurodisco. And when I said ass, I meant ... ah fuck it. Let's just play the crappy song again.

Chill. The article was obviously written with humor and appreciation.

Really Village Voice, this is your voice? Eurodisco is a world of possibilities, why not support people that LOVE our freakiness? My family was one of the first to settle there and I love the vibe, it is so sad to see that you all are so negative. Maybe you should go back to where you came from.....

This article is sooo unprofessional ! It's a shame to read these kind of things on this kind of blog. Criticizing is ok as long as it's constructive, this kind of criticism is just slander !
