A "New Year Tradition" is upon us - no, not the January sales, nor the usual mounds of dead Xmas trees lining the streets, but yet another Tube strike. Thus, the opening throes of my week not only include the traditional sense of impending doom, but also the prospect of walking to the benighted office in the cold and damp...
Never mind, on this Tacky Music Monday, I have a genuine item of wonder that ought to put a smile on our faces as we prepare to get out there into the gloom - the Belgian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973. Of course.
It has purple bell-bottoms and matching platform boots. It has backing singers in proto-Golden Girls fright wigs. it's completely incomprehensible. It's Baby, Baby by Nicole & Hugo!
I don't think they had much of a career after that.
Have a good week, peeps...
