Black Lace - Agadoo (1984)

80s songs don't get much cheesier than this! Black Lace released a number of successful novelty party records during the 80s, after representing the United Kingdom in the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest. They didn't win, but they managed a respectable seventh place with their song Mary Ann.

Agadoo was an irritating novelty song which peaked at number 2 in the UK singles chart and spent 30 weeks in the top 75. Amazingly, it went on to become the eighth best-selling single of 1984!

Other camp and annoying singles by Black Lace that made the UK Top 40 were;

Superman - 1982 (#9)
Do The Conga - 1984 (#10)
The Hokey Cokey - 1985 (#31)

Black Lace - Do The Conga (1984)

The follow-up single to Agadoo reached #10 in the UK. It was yet another irritating party song that forced me into dancing like an idiot at the 80s school disco. It was written by Peter Morris, who also wrote the Black Lace's Eurovision entry "Mary Ann."  The duo's UK album Party Party sold over 650,0000 copies within the first five weeks of release, reaching double platinum status - Heaven knows I'm miserable now!
