Barbarella was an all-female dance/pop trio from the Netherlands, who released two albums in their short-lived career during 1989-91 - Sucker For Your Love, and Don't Stop The Dance.
They first came to prominence performing in the Dutch TV show, The Pin Up Club, around 1988/1989, eventually recording and releasing what was to become its theme song, "We Cheer You Up (Join The Pin Up Club)". The song, a happy uptempo pop song in the Euro disco vein of that time, quickly hit the Top 10 in their native the Netherlands and gathered some momentum and interest around the European Continent. The video was also aired frequently in the UK on the now defunct music video request channel Lifestyle Satellite Jukebox in 1991-1992.
A quickly compiled debut album consisting a few original tracks, covers and remixes (the title track "Sucker For Your Love" that is cover version of Toto Coelo's song "Dracula's Tango", and also including a version of "Summer in the City") followed around late 1989/early 1990, and yielded further singles in "(Like A) Fata Morgana" and the title track "Sucker For Your Love". However, apart from becoming minor hits in Holland and Finland (where their debut album went Gold too), they weren't an international breakthrough.
A year later at the time of their second album Don't Stop The Dance, the lineup had changed slightly one member having left and now being replaced by a new one. However, while rave and r'n'b were all the rage across the European charts, Barbarella had done nothing to update their simple, melodic 80s flavoured Euro disco, and despite the brilliantly catchy title track lead single, the project flopped badly and was soon abandoned, the girls going their separate ways.
