Back in '77, I was just out of junior high and went to visit Germany for 6 weeks in the summer.
I was really into music, and at the end of the trip my mother said I could pick three German hit records to take back home to the US with me.
Here are the three I chose: "Lay Back in the Arms of Someone" by Smokie, "Ma Baker" by Boney M, and "Yes Sir I Can Boogie" by Baccara.
"Lay Back" was always my absolute favorite--This song was so big, people in Germany were belting it out on the streets outside of pubs!
LAY BACK IN THE ARMS OF SOMEONE
YES SIR I CAN BOOGIE:
