Throwback Tuesday- LFO With Summer Girls
Let’s take you back to 1999 when one of the best worst songs ever made was released. At the time it was really cool, but listening now, you’re thinking “What the heck?”. We are talking about LFO and “Summer Girls”.
Some how this song reached the Top 30 in the US in July 1999 and peaked at number three in August 1999. Again, God knows how.
The has a ton of crazy cultural references to the 1980’s and early 1990s including: Cherry Coke, Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone, Alex P. Keaton, New Edition, Kevin Bacon in Footloose, New Kids on the Block, Beastie Boys, Larry Bird, William Shakespeare, Abercrombie and Fitch, Michael J Fox, Cherry Pez, “Paul Revere”, Mr. Limpet, Chinese Food, pogo sticks, Candy Girl, The Color Purple and Fun Dip.
I’m not kidding, that’s all the references. Just doesn’t make sense. However, it’s one of my biggest guilty pleasure songs. I blast it every time I hear it. I’m a little ashamed to admit that.
