Wonderful Copenhagen

 

Mabel – Let’s go to wonderful Copenhagen

The best result from Danish “boy” band Mabel’s German disco adventure in 1978, a song which might just as well have worked in a TV-spot for Copenhagen tourism. According to Mabel’s youngest member, Mike Tramp (who bizarrely enough was once rumored to have had a sex change operation as a child), Bernt Möhrle and the staff at Europasound ended up taking control of the whole project, to the point where they even boycotted most of his vocals. This is clearly not the best memory that the band members have of their career, but for disco freaks it turned out to be perfect.

    […] Great. Ok, so I first heard your song Wonderful Copenhagen about 5 years ago, in a mix by a Dutch DJ named Loud-E. It surprised me because of its heavy […]
