Lou Bega – Mambo No. 5

Acadia Einstein

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!

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.

I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Six years and counting....

    Okay, first let me say that I thought the guy’s name was Lou Vega. But I suppose that’s because I already knew who Suzanne Vega was.

    -- Monica Lewinsky
    -- Jennifer Lawrence’s younger, baby-faced sister??
    -- That is not Rita Hayworth.
    -- TINA TURNER!
    -- No clue.
    -- Mary Todd Lincoln?
    -- Jessica Alba

    I know the other ones now. You didn’t host the pictures so you could change the filenames.

    Let me see if this works.

    Monica Lewinsky
    The Amazing Plastic 80s Girl
    The White Queen
    Tina Turner
    Sandra Day O’Connor
    Mary Quite Contrary of Scots
    Jessica Biel

    I did not see Eva Halloween. It disappoints me that Lou didn’t have the foresight to put at least one Eva in there. So I’m disappointed and hungry both now.

    1. Monica Lewinsky
    2. Erika Christensen (u spelled it wrong)
    3. Rita Ora
    4. Tina Turner
    5. Sandra Day O’Connor (Supreme Court Justice) (Sandra Bullock would’ve been better or even Sandra Bernhard)
    6. Mary Todd Lincoln (First Lady)
    7. Jessica Biel

    Some of your picks leave a great deal to be desired in regards to the song, but nice trivia quest. (Monica Potter would’ve been better in #1 also; and what about Tina Marie for a stumper ?)
