We’ve finally got some Spaniards on the board and it’s all very tomato-based. In fact, the album this global smash is from is translated as ‘Daughters of the Tomato’. Which is all…fine…I suppose. Anyway, I’m sure we’re well aware that being a global smash doesn’t automatically mean a song is any good. In fact, I would go as far to say that the vast majority of songs that come with their own dance routines are the bottom end of a very unkempt barrell. Whigfield, Black Lace, Los Del Rio….the Blockbusters theme tune; when will it all end?
However, this song does kind of take it up a notch by being a gobbledegook rendition of The Sugar Hill Gang’s ‘Rapper’s Delight’, parodying the people who invent their own words when they can’t speak the language a song was written in. We’ve all seen / heard them.
Also, it was banned in the Dominican Republic for being Satanic. Which I can certainly get on board with. The devil always has the best condiments.
