#FridayBackTrack – Barbie Girl

Once upon a time, my family and I did not have DSTV. We had an aerial, in fact at first we had a bunny aerial. For those of you that are not familiar with such things, a bunny aerial was an aerial that you would attach to your tv and move around to get the clearest picture on your tv screen! Our channels were limited to SABC 1, 2, 3 and E.tv . On these channels, a famous song that they would play (in between soapied like Days of our Lives and the Bold and the Beautiful) would by ‘Barbie girl’ by Aqua.

The video is EXTREMELY colourful and unfortunately not of the quality that we are used to nowadays. The song topped many charts and came second on various year end charts.

It also has received multiple diamond and platinum certifications. Take a listen!
