Macarena... didn't suck

I was in Ecuador during the Macarena craze, so I had absolutely no idea
that you guys got totally screwed over in the U.S.... and no wonder so
many people hate the song. You see... you guys got the stupid "ditz
singspeak" version where 'Macarena' talks about how she's apparently the
last Coca-Cola of the desert, along with a dumb pop beat behind it
because, you know, U.S. record producers seemed to think Americans would
commit suicide if something played over the radio that didn't match up
to everything that's come before.

So, what was the REAL Macarena like? Pure Spain:

It was far more enjoyable to dance to, and you didn't have the grating
female singer. After having heard the US version... yeah, you guys got
totally screwed over.


Thanks to everyone who answered about whether or not they were still reading my LJ, nice to see you sticking around ;)

Nope. Still don't like it. It IS slightly less annoying without the bad singing Tarzan sounding guy inna background and all but meh.

I think part of the problem too is that they played it TOO MUCH. X_x And it is one of those songs capable of getting stuck in your head. Here, have the Animaniacs version instead. XD
