The Buggles – Video Killed The Radio Star
The female 'ooah-ooah' vocals were originally performed by a friend of the Buggles named Tina Charles. (Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes met while playing as auxiliary musicians in her self named band in the mid-1970's.) The tape was messed up during production of the Age of Plastic LP and Ms. Charles was not available for redubbing at the time. Rachel Fury (fairly well known for her work with Pink Floyd) was contacted instead and she performed the vocals for the LP. The women in the video were just stand in actresses, according to Geoff Downes.
The drums on the A-side were actually played by Warren Cann, the drummer from 'Ultravox'.
