B*Witched – Rollercoaster

I’ve been really slack about getting a lot of my CDs zapped over to my gorgeous new 16gb Sansa View Mp3 player. I end up listening to the same things over and over cos it’s easier than tracking down CDs and going through the whole ripping process (why haven’t they invented a machine that can rip 20 CDS at a time?). But one strange choice that is on my Sansa View is this one…Rollercoaster by the Irish group B*Witched.

It’s a light, fluffy pop song from a light fluffy pop group. But something happens to my mood every time it unexpectedly pops up when I’m on the train heading to work or heading into town on the bus. I get a smile on my face and flash back to 1998 which now seems a much simpler and more joyous time than 2010.

I think it is one reason I’ve become so addicted to Sweden’s Melodifestivalen – the fun and innocence of a light, catchy pop song is still there in abundance. When I look at the charts today both here in Oz and in the former home of pop music, the U.K., there’s nothing like “Rollercoaster” – the age of the innocent, fun pop song has gone it seems.

Meanwhile, back at B*Witched…..thanks to the magic of Youtube, I’ve put the clip for the song below. It’s silly, fun and a little camp. Who knew I’d still be listening to it 12 years later.
