I am so glad that Bill O'Reilly has finally lifted his economically crippling ban
on the beleaguered French people, because now we can once again enjoy music videos made by French terrorists like Sandra Lou
! I can't get Sandra Lou's music video, "Banana Split
" out of my head!
Check out those dance moves - she turns left, she turns right, she does the monkey! She does the swim! She does the robot! She bounces up and down! She is wearing a mini-skirt and go-go boots! Sandra Lou is retro-hot-pink and fluorescent yellow delicious! "Ooo-la-la!"
I would sing along, but I don't speak the international language of terrorism, French! I have no idea why I like this song, but it has an infectious quality about. When I first heard it, I just thought it was kind of stupid, but later I felt that it had something that a lot of music is lacking today, enthusiasm.
Now there are those that find all bubblegum pop disagreeable, and to a large degree I would concur. But there are certain classic groups, like the Monkees
, the Partridge Family
and the Archies
that just seem to get better with age, and the music today just doesn't seem to be able to hold a candle to them. All of these bands are like the Beatles, timeless and unique.
I am not comparing Sandra Lou or "Banana Split
" to these great old pop groups, but it is certainly a step in the right direction. It is just fun to listen to, and I don't even know what the song is about!
I found this video while I was searching for videos of the Banana Splits
. I find that months later I still go back to listen to it. It's just so much fun! It is just silly candy-floss music and a bouncing camera barely focusing on primary colors against a white background, but it works! Maybe that is what's wrong with music nowadays, it's just not as much fun
The song is not even Sandra Lou's hit, she is doing a cover of an old Lio hit
. Lio's version is fun, but Sandra Lou's version steals the show!
So, What is Sandra Lou singing about? I found the lyrics, and it goes like this:
