i said a hey hah a hey a llalalalal lalaallala :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bouncmsk: :bouncmsk: :bouncmsk:

heard this in greece and just knew it was going to be huge over here - number one in 18 different countries no less

but here's a great quote from lola of the band explaining what the song is about:

'It's about a guy who really likes this song and goes to a disco and knows the DJ and the DJ knows he likes it so he puts it on and they dance and because he doesn't know English he sort of invents the words.'

I feel fortunate because I've managed to avoid hearing this song so far. Now I've sad that I don't doubt that I'll start hearing it all the time. How bad is it on a scale of 1 (not too bad) to 10 (oh eh oh ah ah ding dang walla walla bing bang)?

3 when you first hear it... 8 when it's been the most played song on the radio for two months.

It is sad isn't it. I heard this in Italy a while back and thought exactly the same.

PS Mike replies so quickly because he does nothing else

one of the bad thinsg about this one is that the three birds in las ketchup are really minging in a kind of they're so close to being attractive yet so not attractive kind of way

Don't mention that song, please. I suppose it isn't as bad as that infernal Macarena song, but that is hardly high praise...

It is annoyingly catchy the first time you hear it, though.

Right, here's a little story for ya....

Just spoke to one of my colleagues who has a spanish girlfriend. Now she is always singing Las Ketchup, and he asked her what the words meant. Now you probably knew this, but they are pure gibberish. But what you probably didn't know was that they were trying to imitate "Rappers Delight" by Grandmaster Flash!!

the things you learn eh!

Maybe that's what happened when they wrote the lyrics. :D

Any luck downloading that song we were going to cover?

Not at work. I got the contact sheet of the photos though. With a bit of touching up (airbrushing my double chin, airbrushing Goat's face etc) they will be cool.

Rob can you send me the photos please, Rich didn't CC me in

protein

When I gets 'ome I will send you the best ones at internet resolution.

Funkodrom
21-10-2002, 14:30:18
Can you send me all of them? I'm not going to use them I just want to see them.

Goat Spawn
21-10-2002, 14:33:13
Yeah, me too please. All of them. I shall delete the sh!t ones

protein
21-10-2002, 14:45:11
They are very big. I will send you them all at a normal resolution.

protein
21-10-2002, 14:48:19
Oh, I've chosen the best ones from the contact sheet. I will forward that to you guys and hopefully you will pick the same ones that I chose for Rich to send me. We can always ask for more.

(He doesn't have an internet account and his connection is slow so he is sending only the useable ones)
