I have been exploring the nether regions of The Association’s back catalogue after their smash hit ‘Along Comes Mary’ was used in the soundtrack of ‘The Queen’s Gambit’.
While their back catalogue offers very slim pickings, I think they deserve plenty of credit for the use of the ‘baba-doo-bah’ lyrical hook in Mary.
This sent me down a very pointless rabbit hole of trying to find more top tunes which have ‘dooby-de-doos’ or ‘bibbidy-las’ as part of the lyrics/instrumentation.
Below are my top 2 choices. But there must be more fine examples of this much overlooked genre.
