Love them just a little bit more...




Not much info about Dolly Dots apart from the fact that it is a German group formed in 1979 and originally composed of 6 girls : Angela Groothuizen, Angela Kramers, Anita Heilker, Esther Oosterbeek, Patty Zomer and Ria Brieffes.


Group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Love Me Just a Little Bit More (Totally Hooked on You)" released in 1983.


As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1979 ... the beginnings of the Spice Girls in an 80s version and above all in a German version. A very nice group of young girls but who we suspect will not end at the top of the Charts ...



1979 ... their good humor is a pleasure to see, that's clear. Even if the style is particularly kitsch, it is nonetheless effective. What more...



1979 ... as often in this kind of concept group, the titles are legion. Just for this first year of existence, there are already 3. It promises !



1980 ... the problem in these cases is that quantity does not necessarily mean quality. For this year 1980, there will still be a plethora of titles but only this title will come out more or less well ...



1981 ... we can not base everything on the physique of singer-dancers to finish at the top of the Charts and that's what the producers of this group may have overestimated ...



1981 ... the girls still try to stick to the latest trends of the moment and we feel a little better. Hope it lasts ...



1981 ... well, that won't have lasted long. The girls fall back to an after all average qualitative level and it is clear that this is not how they will get their first mega hit ...



1982 ... like any year with them, there are some good and some not so good. On average, it's 1 successful title in 3. We will keep only the best of course ...



1983 ... the years pass and they still do not manage to release THE title which will finally consecrate them. We will therefore have to be a little more patient ...



1983 ... we still feel that something is happening during this year 1983. All the titles are inspired and we suspect that at some point something particularly interesting will happen ...



1983 ... and the particularly interesting, here it is ! Here they finally get the recognition they have been chasing for years. A title that will undoubtedly remain as their most successful !



1983 ... a year 1983 which will undoubtedly remain as their best vintage. Plethora of titles, as usual, but quality on every level. What more !



1984 ... a mid-decade that sees them at their best. They have finally found the style and sound that are going well to compete with the competition and without complex



1984 ... the upturn was short-lived. They go back in their ways and especially their too simplistic style. Frankly shame ...



1984 ... they constantly alternate between inspired pieces and those which are clearly less so. Fortunately, this one will rather be part of the 1st category ...



1985 ... in full boost mode. They deliver here a track which spins at the speed of light and which can only make you dizzy given its totally unbridled rhythm ...



1985 ... they will never have been ridiculous, far from it. But it is clear that the level will have remained too average for them to one day hope to win the stars ...



1985 ... anyway, the adventure continues for good. Even if there is only them to believe in it, they quietly continue on their way ...



1985 ... a nice group which will never have landed a major hit but which will not have to be ashamed of its discography. Nothing exceptional but a good job overall ...



1986 ... it is clear that they have been doing more of the figuration than anything else for some time but who would be angry with them to still believe in it a minimum ...



1986 ... they slowly but surely approach the exit door. Until the end they will have hoped to win THE title that could have made them enter the legend. Sadly lost ...



1987 ... the last year of existence. This time the concept is reaching the end of its possibilities and no one believes it anymore. Hard law of the trade ...



1987 ... an adventure that will have lasted almost 8 years, not bad for a small group without pretensions. Many other bands at the same level will not have lasted that long ...
