The Ketchup Song by Las Ketchup
Asereje: The Ketchup Song
This will not post anything on Facebook or anywhere else. Remember the Las Ketchup song from the early s, which made you sing along even though you had no idea what you were singing? Well, I've got news about that song and if you've been a fan of the gibberish chorus then I suggest you sit down somewhere. Cos this Twitter thread is going to turn your life upside down. The lyrics then roughly translate to "with the moon in his pupils, and leftover contraband on his blue suit. Then Diego goes to a club which is super-packed, but he doesn't care.
Chances are if you've been on holiday to Europe over the summer, or within spitting distance of The Box you will have known this song for some time now. Las Ketchup are three slightly odd looking women from Spain who are the proud exponents of this year's Macarena. It's got dance moves wiggle your hands, thumb a lift, raise your arms, knock your knees together and a sunny video where the trio serve drinks in a beach bar. Its chorus is a very Spanish europop interpretation of Rapper's Delight. Unlike previous euro-cheese to hop the channel there has been no attempt to cack handedly translate the lyrics into broken English. Point 2 is particularly amusing because everyone sort of knows how it goes but tends to make up every single word after " a hey a ha a hey " see opening sentence. It's quite feasible that this single is going to become the biggest selling non-english hit ever to top the UK chart.
