Nineties, summer, dance. Almost all the qualities of this song to become a hit. The Summer hit of 1996. But actually, we have to say: The Bayside Boys Remix.
The original song was not such a hit, but in the remix, it became a big hit! And now almost everyone knows the song AND the dance!
So, what do you mean by popular?
The popularity was good to have a 19th place in the Summer Song of the Day Top 20:
Number 19: Los Del Rio- Macarena [Bayside Boys Remix]
