Mike Batt - The Ride to Agadir

What do you think of this song?


The image is… unusual.
I only liked the title, to be honest. I didn’t like the melody.

What about y’all?

There is no accounting for taste of course, but this is probably one of the worst songs ever.
It’s a cover of ‘Ride To Agadir’ by Boney M which is equally bad.

Come to think of it, every song which has the word ‘Agadir’ in its title is a nuisance to the ear.
Don’t believe me? Just take a look at the disc covers below. Still not convinced? Listen for yourself.

Fernando Express Bony M - Ride to Agadir Andy Borg - Das Mädchen von Agadir
Der Rote Mund von Agadir (The girl from Agadir)
(The red moon of Agadir)

What a difference with Casa! Most songs (and most movies too for that matter) which carry the word ‘Casablanca’ in their title, are sheer works of art.

The Andy Borg song is okay… Fernando Express’s is not that awful either. Although none of the two is my kind of thing.

I didn’t know there were “many” songs “on” Agadir. That’s interesting.
