Doctor, doctor - Baba and Roody

The couple responsible for the curious song 'Hacka-Tacka music' tried to have another hit with this second single, 'Doctor, doctor'. It's a reggae music version of the 'playing doctor' rites that children go through at an early age. By then, it was obvious that the couple were playing on the funny/sexy market, and the audience literally didn't buy it.

As for me, it was curiosity more than anything. The first single had managed to make me laugh quite a lot, and so I expected something from this one. But as always, the sequel disappointed.

Hacka-Tacka music - Baba & Roody

The reggae-track 'Hacka-Tacka music' is most notable for its panting and groaning by the French performers, Baba & Roody. It was a sensation in the Netherlands in the late Seventies because of their performance in the weekly chart show 'Toppop': the female singer's top slowly moved downwards, revealing a whole nipple in the end.

I bought the single for its comedy value in 1989, and then a year later once again, to give it to a friend during his birthday party, saying 'This is the one you've been searching for so long!'. (In fact, it's his birthday again today!) He was asked to play the single by all who were there, and while the song was playing his head turned bright red. I really had to laugh.

My collection: 7" single no. 959
Found: All that music, Leiden, August 10, 1989
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Hacka-Tacka music' / 'La musique erotique'
