Baby baby - Nicole & Hugo

Nicole & Hugo's 'Baby baby' could be the biggest surprise of the day for me. When I bought the single yesterday, I had a vivid memory of a ridiculous couple dress in purple jumpsuits singing a song slightly too loud with strange expressions on their face. But ridiculous clothing aside, this is actually a very good song! The video is included here for your pleasure, but listen to the track first - you will be pleasantly surprised.

Probably thanks to their appearance, the song ended 17th at the 1973 Eurovision Song Contest - out of 17 competitors. Recent reviews have described it as 'a relatively tacky song' and 'a Eurovision turkey'. But personally I think the music on this track is impressive. Although the lyric is indeed pretty bad...

Found: Record fair, Utrecht, November 19, 2011
