Lou Bega – Mambo No. 5
I am not sure why so many people hated Lou Bega. His song never hurt anyone. And it had that sound. It wasn’t an instrument I don’t think. You know, the thing that starts out the song? I don’t even know how to spell the sound. Dowk? “Dowk, dowk, dowk da dowk dowk.” That’s sort of it. I guess it was a synthesizer but who can say for sure. But if I could get myself something that made that noise I would be dowking all over the place.
And beyond that awesome sound, Lou gave us the opportunity to think about the random girl names that he blurted out. And since I am fascinated by the things that Google suggests, I think it would be nice to give you a little quiz after the video. Listen to the song, say “dowk” a few times (or find some smarter way to spell it) then guess who each of the ladies are. And remember, Google suggested them. If I had my way I would NOT have picked some of those people.
Oh, and since this was 1999, I think the douchey hat craze can be traced directly back to Lou Bega. Hmmm. Maybe that is why people hate him. It’s why I hate him now. Bastard.
And now the ladies!
A little bit of you makes me your man!
That last line makes no sense at all. None. But I bet you can’t guess all those people. And no, I don’t know why I chose all different size pictures. I am an artist I guess.
