Okay, not really. But I have to admit that I was a bit taken aback when I saw this video by the 70s era Dutch pop group, Luv.
At first, it looked like these women were not wearing anything under their skimpy tops.
Upon closer examination, I see they're wearing nude body suits. Listening to them, I hear them totally channeling ABBA, which was also big during that time period.
I tried another video, again with them looking all sexified... And then I was suddenly reminded of a song I haven't heard in years!
Yes, I remember this was a hit. No, I hadn't thought of it in years!
I had to share this with a few friends and my friend Joann found another video of Luv singing "You're the Greatest Lover".
This band seems to be a mix of ABBA and Silver Convention, which was a girl group from Germany that was popular at about the same time.
It's funny, because when I was a kid in the 80s, I used to think girl bands were rare. Now I know they weren't, but it does seem like a lot of them consisted of sexy women singing and dancing to vapid music. This kind of stuff doesn't have a lot of staying power, even if it can be faddish or fun... especially when the women get older and less fetching.
I can see why this was popular in Europe, though. The music is festive and catchy and the girls are pretty.
The 70s was chock full of chicks like this, doing their thing... I kind of miss it. I guess it takes talent and beauty to pull off this particular act, but really, it's just entertaining for a different reason... perhaps because they seem to shock the audiences!
