Song of the day: Las Ketchup- The Ketchup Song (Asereje)

Let’s talk about the Sugarhill Gang with their big disco hit Rapper’s Delight. And now you think: Chris has definitely lost his mind. But no. I have not lost my mind. I just want to talk about a few lines in this song:

I said a hip, hop, the hippie
to the hip-hip-hop, a you don’t stop
the rock it to the bang bang boogie say up jumped the boogie
to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat
Those lyrics have to do with the song of the day. These are the famous words in the chorus of the Ketchup Song. The chorus is the Spanish translation of those lines above, making it:

an de buididipí
So now you know how they invented these stick-to-mind lyrics. But where did they get their name from?
Easy! Their father had the nickname “El Tomato”. The tomato. And what can you make with tomatoes? Yes, ketchup! So…
