Song of the day: Aqua- Barbie Girl

aqua greatest hits

This is such a group which had one hit, which stayed in our minds, and the rest of the songs went past us…
And that is actually sad, because a lot of hits by Aqua are nice songs to listen to, the texts are quite good (I especially like the text of the song Back To The Eighties), so why do we only know this one song?

Because it was a mega hit, and it was happy, and it caused commotion. Mattel didn’t like the fact that they used their brand, Barbie, for the song. They went to court with it, lost, and later they used it themselves in their commercials! With another text, okay, but the melody was the same.

So, the “summer” happy song of the day is the song Barbie Girl by Aqua!

And vote for the Summer Song of the day Top 20!

Song of the day: The Pointer Sisters- Jump! (For My Love)

The-Pointer-Sisters-Break-Out-290285

Yes, this is one of the best studio albums by the Pointer Sisters! Okay, we only have one, but still…
One of the tracks on the album is Automatic, a very good song, but not the song of the day.

The song of the day is a song which is a happy song. I can’t think of a better description. Or, well:It has to do something with the Olympic games of 1984.

It’s Jump (For My Love)!

And this song was originally called Jump, the rest of the title was placed after it when the song got confused with Jump from Van Halen.

Song of the day: Billy Preston & Syreeta- It Will Come In Time

I need a happy song today. Just because I like it.

The song I choose for the song of the day is also happy. It comes from the eighties, and is very happy.
Billy Preston and Syreeta with It will come in time.

Get happy, tomorrow two new songs!

Song of the day: Electric Light Orchestra- Mr. Blue Sky

Hello again,

A new song of the day is waiting for you!

It’s a happy song, made by an orchestra. It was written on a mountain, it was foggy for the whole week, and all of a sudden the sun comes through!
The song was remastered in 2012, but I still like the old version better.

It’s ELO (electric light orchestra) with Mr. Blue Sky.

Get happy!
