Yes Sir!

Ah... Does early euro-disco get any more beautiful than this?!?!

While it doesn't share much with the classic euro-disco acts, being more French/Gainsbourg sounding than most of the disco coming from the continent, even though the group consisted of two spanish flamenco singers!

Fun Fact: They were chosen to represent Luxembourg (?!?!) in 1978's Eurovision song contest!

The instrumentation on this is just perfect! And every once in awhile the little moog comes out and you hear the little synthetic chords peek out over those violins. No wonder this song sold more than 16 million copies on it's release!

If the question is "Can you boogie?" Then the answer here, is rhetorical...

Baccara - Yes Sir, I Can Boogie

P.S. Just for shits and giggles, here's a 2005 remix of the same song, all handbag housed up for your gay disco loving souls.

And here's a video of Baccara singing live on Top Of The Pops.

To this day I am convinced, that they were a heavy influence on Björk with their unashamed use of heavy accented lyrics.
