YUI comes from a very modest single parent family and so of course there was no money for a car or driving lessons, so when she became successful, one of first the things she did was obtain her driving license and buy a car. She was so happy, she wrote three songs about her car after that ! ! ! This one is about a trip in the car to the seaside and it is very carefree and cheerful ! ! ! It is really popular at her live shows and there is even a special dance that the fans do to the track ! ! ! I always find myself singing it when I am in the car ! ! !
Is there anything better than a couple of girls raucously yelling about how rubbish boys are? I don’t know that there is. Like Shampoo crossed with Republica crossed with Girls Aloud crossed with… oh, you get the idea. Now pogo, goddammit!
My girls’ favourite song right now is “Up, Up and Away” by The Fifth Dimension, which I have as the opening track on a Big Chill compilation. We listen to it a lot. If I’m lucky we go on to track 2 (Lambchop’s wonderful “Up With People”), and then this classic. Best chorus ever?
Languish in the groove of the highlight of a 2012 Maria Muldaur-led tribute album; few but Snow, who died in 2011 at age 60, could equal the legendary Minnie’s singing and the guitar players she married.
A Creamy classic gawn well funky.
Stumbled across this by accident. Swedish Cajun ! Makes me smile every time. What more can you ask of a tune? The title translates as ‘The Girls In Gothenburg’.
As the close-down of the ‘Earworms wiv wilemena’ broadcast has already been announced, I’ll add to that by saying a huge Thanks to all you lovely listeners and contributors. Please send no cards or flowers, but donations to the Earworm Fund would be most welcome.
Best wishes to the next worm charmer.
