Italian disco music act Baby's Gang released in 1983 Happy Song . Happy Song hit the charts a year later when covered by German band Boney M.
Boney M original singers Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett did not participate in the recording. Session vocalists La Mama (Patricia Shockley, Madeleine Davis and Judy Cheeks) did the additional female vocals. The single gave the group their final German Top 10 hit single (#7), their first in nearly four years.
