There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them on cheesy countdowns run by music channels over Christmas if you are lucky.
So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.
Ooh Stick You – Daphne and Celeste
If you were a kid at the end of the nineties or the early noughties then you would hear this song so much as it was always played on the radio, at the school discos, on children television programmes – it was everywhere. For someone like me who couldn’t stand the song it was intimidating as you couldn’t escape it but saying that a lot of people liked it, so let’s have a look at the song today.
Ooh Stick You was a single released by pop duo Daphne and Celeste in September of 1999. It was written by Michael Marz, Michelle Chiavini and S Burkes. It was released under the Universal Record label and produced by Chiavini as well. The song was the first track to be released from their debut album We Didn’t Say That.
The song charted in a few countries with it’s biggest position n New Zealand where it went to number 5 and also went platinum in record sales. It went to number 8 in the UK Charts.
Like I have already said, I wasn’t a fan of the song. The first reason was the high voices that were I believe computerised. The second thing I didn’t like was the negativity around the words. When you are a kid you are taught to be nice to others and I always felt the lyrics were nasty just for the sake of it. Listening to it now I still feel the same.
