Sven will I see you again

One of the most important things to remember when running an mp3 blog is to never take yourself too seriously. (we're only writing about daft old pop music, after all.) Which is why I like to throw in songs like this from time to time:

Ahhhh, M.C. Miker G & Deejay Sven and their ring-rang-a-dong-ing for a hol-e-day. Truly, they don't make them like that anymore. It's just a shame that this tip-top Dutch duo blew their chances of supporting The Smiths on the Meat Is Murder tour when they turned up for a meeting with Morrissey wearing those leather trousers.*

But what style! How could anyone (other than that notorious sourpuss Stephen Patrick) fail to be impressed by Miker G's trendy 'tache, or DJ Sven's winning combination of Deputy Dawg hat, Superted cardy and those aforementioned raunchy leather keks?

The following pair of American fans certainly were (impressed, I mean), as they've gone and filmed their own mimed tribute to these devastating Dutch masters who bestrode the worldwide charts like a pair of rapping colossuses (colossi?) in that barmy balmy summer of '86:

I know, I know, it's enough to bring a tear to your eye!

*If that "fact" ever turns up on Wikipedia, I never dunnit!

Miker G sort of made a small comeback last year in the Netherlands. Good for him! Isn't it a brilliant summer song?

Yes, it makes me feel old. But in a good way.

I think it's a brilliant summer song too! It makes me feel old as well. It's incredible to think it's already twenty-two years since it was first released.
