Default Late 70's/Early 80's Disco/Electro i.d.

I will try and describe this song as best as I can.

I presume the song is a late 70′s or early 80′s disco song – I do not think it is a ‘pure’ disco song in that I think it verges more on electro music than real instruments. As such I presume it could be a Euro dance song but that remains to be seen.

So, the song itself – well it doesn’t have a verse-chorus-verse structure and the only bit I know appears to be the middle eight. It is what people would most identify the song as being.

“Wa-hoo-hoo-hoo-HOO (ting) Wa-hoo-hoo-hoo-HOO (ting) Wa-hoo-hoo-hoo-HOO (ting)

The “OO-oo…” sections are short bursts by female backing vocalists and the (ting) is a sound best described as a triangle strike or high note glockenspeil played at the end of each bar.

If I had to chose a style of music I would say ‘Cerrone’ who was a French electro-disco artist with a string of hits in the late 70′s and early 80′s.

The vocal has the similar driving aspect to it that Starsound’s ‘Stars on 45′ intro has. High ptched female chorus with a mid-tempo rythym.

It is not ‘Let’s All Dance’ but you’re in the right ball park.

I have no idea what the song is, but it sounds glorious.

This is all I could think of in terms of similarity:



I know it's not the one but if we can just get the sound down, we'll be closer.

Replace the male chorus with female and imagine the 'Woo hoo...' refrain in the style of a train whistle and you're nearly there.

The song I wish to be identified was on Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe (6/2/14)

It was during the 'Wonga' advert sequence.

Can I post a video?
