Ottawan

Artist: Ottawan
LP: 7" single
Song: "Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)"
[ listen ]

Ottawan's 1980 Euro-hit "D-I-S-C-O" has been a favorite find for my 45s collection for over a decade now, so imagine how thrilled I was last week when I discovered this 1981 Ottawan single in the dusty bins of Al's Music in the University District here in Seattle. this one's guaranteed to get stuck in your head - and maybe in your arms and legs too.

If only I knew you when I was nine. After a trip to Club Med with my family, I searched high and low for a cassette of "Haut Les Mains," "Hands Up" in French. I finally found it...I wonder where that cassette is now?

Ah, memories...
