Released in 1966, ‘Black Is Black’ was the debut single by Los Bravos. It was covered by a number of acts, but was notably translated into Johnny Halliday’s repertoire in the same year. Those frenchies were sensible enough to include an upbeat (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch) rhythm that Earl Van Dyke and his Funk Brothers would have been proud of. Also, most topically, the video is reminiscent of my daughter’s Christmas dance extravaganza this weekend. Have a great week.
