Band: Boney M

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

I wrote the words and melody for Boney M’s (be­low) Ev­ery­body Wants to Dance Like Josephine Baker, while Pete Bri­quette, from the Boom­town Rats, wrote the mu­sic. Growing up in Done­gal in the 1960s and 1970s the only black mu­sic I ever heard was from Boney M. Usu­ally the ra­dio sta­tions played Big Tom and The Main Lin­ers, or Philom­ena Be­g­ley (The Girl From Done­gal).
