|Luv' singles chronology|
"Eeny Meeny Miny Moe" is the seventh single by Dutch girl group Luv', released in the summer of 1979 by Philips/Phonogram Records. This song appears on the formation's second album Lots Of Luv' and entered the record charts in Benelux, German speaking countries and Denmark.
After the success of "Casanova" on the Continental European charts, "Eeny Meeny Miny Moe" was released as the follow-up single. The track's title and chorus lyrics deal with a famous children's counting rhyme in English speaking countries (Eeny Meeny Miny Moe). Its Bouzouki and Balalejka-theme is highly inspired by Boney M.'s "Rasputin". During the promotion of the song, Luv' and their producer Hans van Hemert were not satisfied by the way Philips/Phonogram Records promoted them. They were about to leave the label and were looking for another deal. The Dutch press speculated for weeks about their future record company. In October 1979, the trio signed a contract with CNR/Carrere.
