Champagne: Light up my eyes

When they first hit the charts in the second half of the seventies, Champagne from Rotterdam were hailed as the Dutch ABBA, both in terms of composition and type of music. To my taste, the difference in class is evidenced by the fact that ABBA's songs still hold up 40 years later, whilst the six hits of Champagne sound dated or worse. This is their fourth chart success, just failing the top 10.

Year: 1978
Charted: 6 weeks
Top position: 11
My score: 2/6
