Chic Chica Chic Chica Chic

Here is a song that's been in my head lately and I dedicate it to all my wonderful chic girlfriends. "Chic Chica Chic Chica Chic" by one of my favorite of the 70's orchestras, Biddu Orchestra. This song is from their 1976 disco classic LP Rain Forest. This song might get repetitive at some points but I can't help but fall in love with the overall kitch element of the song. Biddu is an Indian-British born producer, composer and song writer who has composed a number of hit records during the early part of the British Disco scene of the mid 1970's. He produced Carl Douglas' hit "Kunk Fu Fighting" as a B-side and ultimately selling over 9 million copies worldwide. He then formed his own disco orchestra and debuted the brilliant instrumental LP Blue Eyed Soul and watched his own star rise even further with the first single "Summer of '42". The rest is disco history by introducing singer Tina Charles and a series of many disco releases that filled every disco dance floor. Biddu is still involved in music and produces spiritual and eastern oriented records. Another song I love is their 1978 cover version of Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon", another song about a chic "chica".
