The 80 aids edition is better than the mountain dweller panpipe rape in a bothy version

It is a lovely tune, and it was quite a moment for me when I went round someone's house and there was a bunch of Portguese blokes bellowing it out at the top of their voices, though it was lacking a bit in the tender sensuality the song suggests.
Wayne Wonder and Cutty Rank's version is very cheerful

Weirdly enough my first exposure to it was the Sun City Girls rendition and I had no idea it was anything else, I thought it was their original song. I was so puzzled when one evening I heard it being performed by a busker in a London Underground station with a karaoke-style backing track. How the fuck is this Sun City Girls song this popular?! Felt a bit daft when I told a friend and they were like “mate that’s Lambada are you having me on or what”.

I'd totally forgotten about the forbidden dance [/south American accent] until it popped up on old TOTPs a while back. It got ridiculous coverage for a while. When was the last big summer fad like this? Aside from this year's doing nowt craze.

ETA gangnam style.

I remember the girl in the 80's video gave me funny feelings (I was 9 years old, so no nonceage involved). Why wouldn't her Dad let her dance? Was it cos she was trying to dance with a black kid? Is that it?
