Mistral: Starship 109

Mistral were a short-lived studio project by  Robbie van Leeuwen (ex-Shocking Blue and Galaxy Lin) and Rick van der Linden (ex-Ekseption andTrace). They scored three hits of which Starshop 109 was the biggest success. In many ways this song foreshadows the synthesizer driven pop of the eighties.

Year: 1978
Charted: 8 weeks
Top position: 9
My score: 3/6
