VENGABOYS : WE LIKE TO PARTY
We have to admit a little something in here – and some might say ‘the shame of it’, given we’re a pop music blog and as such we should really like all pop. That said, back in 1998, we couldn’t STAND this song. In much the same way that Steps had a novelty hit with ‘5, 6, 7, 8’ (we hated that too), the Dutch outfit came to town with a bus-full of fun, bright lyrics, bright costumes and… well it was just all very bright. That said, it’s a wonder that Vengabus got anywhere it was so old. And though this single didn’t quite hit the No.1 position down under, it certainly burrowed its way into our pop psyche for a very very long time.
