  • Any one know this cheesy 80's song

    There was a song i used to love as a kid and i would love to here it again. it was on a mix tape i used to have.

    It went

    "all the people on the left....wop bam boogie"

    "all the people on the right...boogaloo"


    " wobba dickle wobba dickle boogaloo.....wobba dickle wobba dickle wop bam boogie(you probably get the idea"

    It was in a kind of ragga style

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

        Backety - Backety, Bo, Bo
        Backety - Backety, Wap Bam Boogie

        Inspired lyrics.

        Seriously though, I like anything with a dance feel (I am a DJ!) and this ticked the box for me - still play it out today, although only in the "warm up minutes", early doors.

          Loved Get Out your Lazy Bed - was Matt Bianco an individual or a group ?
          Into the 5th Millennium & beyond...!

            IIRC they were a group - wasn't the name derived from a shade of italian paint?????

                Yep the song was 'Wap Bam Boogie', currently on 'The Best Of Matt Bianco'. A 1990 release. The band have reformed to do a new album, due 2006-7.

                Most of the Bianco writing was done by Mark Reilly & Mark Fisher, but the other main members of the onstage trio were Danny White and the gorgeous 'Basia' Trzetrzelewaska. Don't ask how to pronouce that! Plenty to find on YOU TUBE site!

                        Yeah I saw that. Wonder if it was the same caller who asked Five Star why they were so sh**??

                        I thought Matt Bianco were a 2 piece or 3 piece combo?

                          hehe..,but as it was Saturday superstore,not Multi Coloured swap shop.
                          It was Mike Read presenting,not Noel Edmonds.
