I use to play a game with family and friends of letting them choose a song to see if i had it in my vast library of music. No matter what people would ask for .. I had it. That was until certain friends knew which songs or genres i disliked, like the stupid song by Crazy Frog or the Ketchup song. Other notable crap songs: The Macarena song, anything Hannah Montana, Cotton Eye Joe, Spice Girls, Milli Vanilli even the dreaded "Dancing Queen" by Abba! Those songs mentioned are enough for anyone to run away into the hills because of madness. Anyone who is suspected of terrorism should be forced to listen to music like this. I know i would open up like a can of beans in nano seconds!
Do i still play the music game? Hell no, life is to short to listen to utter crap. Quick i need some Pink Floyd!
Daughters of a traditional flamenco guitarist from Cordoba, Spanish pop sensation Las Ketchup comprises sisters Lola, Lucía and Pilar Muñoz. Born and raised in southern Spain, known for its Andalusian traditions (flamenco and bullfighting among them) Las Ketchup emerged with a mix of Spanish rumba, Latin pop and Jamaican reggae. Their first single "Aserejé," named after the 1979's old-school rap multi-platinum seller and radio hit "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang and arranged by Manuel "Queco" Ruiz became a local smash. Their debut album called Las Hijas del Tomate followed soon after. ~ [Drago Bonacich, All Music Guide]
Pass the sauce?
"The Ketchup Song" is the English title of the song "Aserejé" which was an international hit in 2002. The song exists in two versions, Spanish and English, with the latter performed in a mixture of English and Spanish, described as "Spanglish", but better suited would be "phonetic English". This song reached #1 in the UK charts, as well as 26 other charts worldwide. The song tells the story of a pimp-like "afro-gipsy, rastafari" character named Diego who walks into a crowded nightclub at midnight, and the DJ, as he sees Diego walk in, plays the "twelve-o'clock anthem", "the song he desires most", which happens to be the 1979 rap hit "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang. Its first verse: "I say the hip hop, the hippie...", pronounced phonetically in Spanish, the way it would sound to someone who does not understand English, becomes the song's chorus. Although technically meaningless and sometimes referred to as gibberish, the chorus is a more-or-less phonetic pronunciation of the first verse almost in its entirety. ~[Source: Wikipedia]
