Summer Song of the Day #14: Wes- Alane
I quite like this summer song. Not only is it nineties from my birthyear (1997), it’s a cool song, too.
And you can sing along, or at least, I do: Alaaaaaneeeee.
Something like that. But I suppose you don’t want to hear that live. Nobody does.
I am not entirely sure, but I think Wes was one of those one-day flies. One hit and you never hear of them again. Wes had some later singles, but they didn’t end high in the charts.
So, this one hit of Wes, Alane, ended on a good place 14.
Number 14: Wes-Alane
Song of the day: Aqua- Barbie Girl
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!
