Song Notes: The Boys And Girls Are Lifting Up Their Plates: And from the whole Indie-Pop thing, we take about a 180 and go the exact opposite direction. Yes, this is the band that did that "Barbie Girl" song, and yeah, they've got a little bit of the Sugarcubes Syndrome (where you fall in love with your captor cool songs are kinda whacked in the kneecaps by an annoying guy shouting over it), but dammit, I love me some Aqua. It's really a pity they broke up, but I think they kind of had to. Their second album was very good, though (aside from the "Barbie Girl" retread, "Bumble Bees" which was actually really pretty embarrassing). This one's from the first, though, and, well, it's one of my favorite cuts from it. Sure, it's absolutely sheer poppiness for pop's sake, but, damned if it doesn't have a great hook that just lodges itself in your brain. I made my SO get this one from a dollar bin at Half-Price Books. She didn't get the allure, so she gave it to my friend Ben who is totally hip to the ways of Aqua. Every so often, you need some Pure Pop, regardless of the Nowness of the people it's for. -Rev. Syung Myung Me
