Ma Belle Amie

Tee-Set was a pop rockband formed in 1966 in Delft, Netherlands. The group recorded a single in 1969 titled “Ma Belle Amie“, which was a hit in their native country, selling over 100,000 copies.[1] The group released an album in the United States on Colossus Records in 1970 titled Ma Belle Amie (the single of the same name listing the artist as ‘The Tee Set’), which reached #158 on the Billboard 200chart,[2] just as the single took off in the United States, eventually reaching #5.[3] The single sold over 1 million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.[4] The version of “Ma Belle Amie” released in 1970 on Major Minor records in the UK is a different studio version of the song, slower in tempo and beginning in a lower key than the hit U.S. version. In the Netherlands, the next single “She Likes Weeds” attained #1. The track was banned[by whom?] in the U.S. because it was said to be referring to drug use; however, the title had been taken from the film Funeral in Berlin. The follow-up single “If You Do Believe in Love” hit #81.[3] The group disbanded in 1975, but briefly reunited in 1978 and 1983. Since 1983 the band was revived, although its work was mainly nostalgic “sixties”.
