  • This is more or less the "legal version" of a bootleg recording named "Let's Do It: Into The 80s Great Hits", which was made the year before under the artist name Passion and caused a hype on dance floors worldwide. As Jaap Eggermont would probably never get permission to use the original Beatles songs the bootleg recording was made of, he decided to use studio musicians to resing them. For the 12" release, most of the other non-Beatles recordings were also resung and a reference to "Beat The Clock" by The Sparks was added. The 7" release focuses on just the Beatles songs.

    Nowadays often referred to as "Discobeatles", it appeared to be a worldwide hit: a U.K. number two (under the artist name "Starsound") and even a U.S. number one, 11 years after Shocking Blue's "Venus" was the first Dutch record to rank the top spot there.
    A "long-play album" was recorded as well, on which the lead track contained even more Beatles songs.

    The formula was repeated by Jaap himself with songs from ABBA, the Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and The Andrews Sisters. Other recordings using the same principle are Lobo's "Caribbean disco show" (using Harry Belafonte songs and another Dutch number one), Startrax "Club Disco" (Bee Gees songs), Goldie "On A Saturday Night" (also Bee Gees) and even the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with "Hooked On Classics" (classical music). Frank Farian also used the formula for "Boney M. on 45".

    Parodies include Rubberen Robbie's "De Nederlandse Sterre Die Strale Overal!" (Dutch language folk songs with altered lyrics, another #1 and multiple sequels), Weird Al Yankovic's "Polka On 45" and Pingo's "Spass Auf 45".

    Of course, Jaap Eggermont was not the first. Previous attempts of putting multiple snippets of songs to a disco beat include Ritchie Family "The Best Disco In Town", Café Crème "Beatles Disco" and Two Man Sound "Disco Samba" (containing salsa themes).
