Bobo Step - Sirkus Bimbo
Silhuetit (see earlier entry) were a sadly underrated vocal group. One of their lesser known somgs is this tongue-in-cheek "Sirkus Bimbo". from their 1978 albun ""Jos mulle sydämesi annat". The original tune was called "Bobo Step" and it was the creation of Frenchman Claude Morgan (real name Claude Youcef Eliaou Ganem) of El Bimbo (finnpicked here) fame The record was released under the moniker Blue Bahamas in 1975. It was an early disco hit in Europe, especially in Italy, where also Raffaella Carra made her own hit version of it.
