B*WITCHED : C’est La Vie
Now almost 12 years old, ‘C’est La Vie’ was the debut single for Irish girlgroup B*Witched. We reckon Sony Music might have seen the global impact that a certain other girl group was experiencing at the time and desperately wanted a slice of the Spice pie. They released ‘C;est La Vie’ throughout the world – and it was successful, hitting No.1 in the UK, the top ten in the US and here in Australia. The clip was a bit of fun, with the foursome dancing their way through a flower-laden meadow. But they’d kidnapped a boy and tied him to a tree and then to further taunt him, they spray him with a garden hose. auspOp does not condone this kind of pop behaviour. There’s also a little bit of traditional Irish dancing as a little nod to the groups’ roots.
