Subject: Song with rio whoaah in it?

Written By: coco_pup on 11/05/06 at 11:29 pm

I heard this great song and for some reason I can't seem to get it out of my mind it has the words, RIO, whoaaaaaaa (in chorus)  it's an 80s song I think and sounds like either a Billy Joel or an Elton John song except I'm not sure. Would anyone be able to help me?

It has the whoaaa (whoa) part in the chorus and I think the words are Rio something but that's all the words I heard that I was able to pinpoint hope this helps. 

Thank you all for your help.
Kind Regards,

Ellie.

Could it be you're looking for "I Go To Rio" by Peter Allen (1978)? ???

Pablo Cruise - I Go To Rio {1978}

song clip...

Oooooo...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
My-o me-o...
I go wild and then
I have to do the samba,
And la bamba.

Now I'm not the kind of person,
With a passion or persuasion
For dancin' or romancin'.
But I give in to the rhythm,
And my feet follow the beating
Of my heart.

whoa oh ohh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
I'm a Salsa fella,
When my baby smiles at me,
The sun lightens up my life,
And I am free at last.
What a blast!

Whoa oh ohh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I feel like Tarzan
Of the Jungle.
There on the hot sand,
In a bungalow
While monkies play above-a,
We'll make love-a.

Now I'm not the kind
To let vibrations,
Trigger my imagination
Easily.
No, that's just not me.
But I turn into a tiger,
Everytime I get the sight of,
What I love, love, love.

Ohhh oh ohh ohhh...

---instruments---

Wooooooo!

Ohh oh oh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
I'm a Salsa fella,
When my baby smiles at me
The sun lightens up my life,
And I am free at last.
What a blast!

Wooooo hooooo...

---instruments/whistles---

whoa oh oh ohh...

whoa oh ohh...
When my baby,
When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio
De Janeiro.
I'm a Salsa fella,
When my baby smiles at me
The sun lightens up my life,
And I am free at last.
What a blast!

(Rio)

When my baby smiles at me,
I go to Rio.
Rio,
Rio De Janeiro.

Take me back,
I put it in.
Take me where I know
I'm gon' to Rio.
Oh ohh...

Pablo Cruise - I Go To Rio {1978}


That is the same as the Peter Allen one, though the Pablo version was I believe a bigger success in America

Yes, that sounds like it thank you Dan,  claybricks and tomario and everyone else.  The other songs are they remakes of that one? I assume the song Lido Shuffle by Boz Scaggs is that the original version?  Anyway, that sounds like the right song the whoahh part of the song.
