RIP, Bobby Farrell of Boney M

Posted By on Thu, Dec 30, 2010 at 10:43 AM

Sure, Bobby Farrell, who died from a post-concert heart attack this morning, didn't actually sing on Boney M's records (producer Frank Farian, the guy behind Milli Vanilli, took care of that part), but he sure could dance.

Below the cut, my personal favorite Boney M track, a cover of Bobby Hebb's "Sunny" that seems to miss the songwriter's intent entirely.

"Sunny":

Bobby Farrell was 61.
