I’m almost ashamed to mention it, but ‘Boom boom
boom boom’ is also a song
performed by the Venga Boys
, a Dutch
band that became famous in Japan
by flooding the music market with tasteless
, mechanic pop songs, all major hits. With ‘boom boom boom boom’ they instantly became millionaire
s and perhaps even the most successful
Dutch band ever. Somehow that makes me feel very, very sad.
If you think my judgment is scathing, just check out those lyrics:
Boom boom boom boom,
I want you in my room.
Let’s spend the night together,
for now and forever.
(repeated approximately 30 times)
Well, the masses liked it. But if you have a choice, please listen to John Lee Hooker’s version. That’s music.
