Song of the day: Bananarama & Fun Boy Three- It Ain’t What You Do

bananarama it ain't what you do

Wow! Do you remember Bananarama? I firstly only knew the cover of Venus, which is actually bad if you compare it with the original of Shocking Blue. However, between some singles which came out of the box with singles, there was this very single with Fun Boy Three. So what do you do? Put the needle on the record, and start listening to it! And it was a catchy song!
The melody rolled out very nicely, so I decided it could be a song of the day! For today, enjoy

Bananarama & The Fun Boy Three- It Ain’t What You Do

Song of the day: Shocking Blue- Venus

Hello everyone,

The song of today is made by a group which was successful in the Netherlands, but also got a number one hit in the USA.

It’s a few years ago, from the seventies…

Shocking Blue with Venus.

It’s the original song, which was later covered by Bananarama. The last version I think isn’t that good, because the sound of Shocking Blue, which has a thing with it, can’t be heard there.
Nowadays they don’t exist anymore, but they have had a lot of success in the Netherlands and abroad.

Tomorrow a new song!
