"Baby Baby" is a 1995 song by the Italian band Corona.

About the song[edit]

The song is actually a cover of Joy & Joyce's 1991 hit, "Babe Babe" also produced by Lee Marrow, and was released in February 1995 as the second single from Corona's 1993 debut album, The Rhythm of the Night. Particularly devoted to the dance floors, it had a great success, reaching the highest positions in various Singles Charts around the world. It peaked at number-one in Italy and on the dance chart in Canada, and number 5 in UK. In 2007, the Swedish dance group Sunblock made a cover of the song.

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "Follow-up to "Rhythm Of The Night" steamrolls down a similar Euro-NRG dance/pop path. Although the airwaves are now flooded with similarly giddy fare, this jampacks a chorus that is insistently contagious—and it is voiced with a fullthrottle diva energy. To that end, both radio and club tastemakers should climb aboard early."[1]
