The other day during a morning walk around Colindres, I found this very waterlogged album cover lying on the wet pavement. So I took a photo and forgot about it until today. Using the all-knowing internet tubes, I’ve found some information about the album.
Lio, Bébé Vampire

Only 100 pesetas! That’s 0.60€. Or $0.86 as of today.

From SpikedCandy:

Portuguese-born Wanda Ribeiro de Vasconcelos is better known as 80s Belgian pop sweetheart Lio. ‘Bébé Vampire’ appeared on Lio’s 1980 debut album, released in 1980, and like most of the songs on that album, was created by celebrated Belgian songwriter Jacques Duvall. Duvall was also wrote her infamous, 2-million-selling ‘Banana Split’, which she says, like France Gall with ‘Les Sucettes’ before her, she was too innocent to understand the double entendre behind.

Less than a fortnight ago, someone posted this classic song to YouTube for your “enjoyment”. Ahhh, 80’s europop…

Or if you prefer, here’s an MP3.

The SpikedCandy review nails it by calling it “a fizzy synthpop confection”.

    Let me guess… you didn’t pick the album up, like the hat the other day. So, you take pictures of trash, but don’t actually help to clean it up?

    You pick up every bit of trash you see on the street?

    No, just the ones I take the time to take a picture of. :)

    Wow, Jane, that comment was so on topic that I changed your comment to embed the image. Very similar, if slightly more porcine.

    And slightly less vampirish.

    The picture may be somewhat similar, but the talent is a world apart. Linda Ronstadt has been thrilling audiences since the early 70’s. I have her greatest hit cd in my work player right this very minute. By the way, The Eagles were her backup singers before launching their own modest career. I’m guessing that Jane’s mom and I are of the same generation :~)

    I *love* Linda Ronstadt, particularly the stuff from the 1970s, Betsy. I also love the work she did with The Seldom Scene.
