The Next Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP?

Given the stunning worldwide success of "We Speak No Americano", it's not surprising that other acts are jumping on Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP's novelty song bandwagon. So far the most likely candidate to snatch their crown is Duck Sauce. Comprised of super DJs Armand Van Helden and A-Trak, the band has been making huge waves with their ridiculous catchy disco house anthem "Barbra Streisand". The song rocked this year's Winter Music Conference in Miami and has been picked up by major labels around the world. More surprising is the impact it's having on mainstream radio. "Barbra Streisand" is already top 50 on the Australian airplay chart and looks set to rocket into the top 40 this week. Personally, I can't get enough of these random novelty songs. Particularly when they are this catchy and name check a holy gay icon like Babsi! Although it begs the question - when is Jive Bunny going to come out of retirement and show these bitches how it's really done? On that happy note, treat your ears to "Barbra Streisand" (below).

I've heard the track previously, but had no idea it was becoming that big. I'm hoping it's an edit that is getting played on the radio, because five minutes of that as background music doesn't really work for me.

Sounds like stars on 45 from the 70's which were hideous.

For Mike: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


For discodevil: No, this wasn't sampled from Stars on 45, this song is sampled from the 1979 hit, "Gotta Go Home" by Boney M.

A fast-paced disco track, "Gotta Go Home" was re-written from a German single, "Hallo Bimmelbahn" (1973) by Nighttrain with the brothers Heinz and Jürgen Huth, both also credited as co-writers on Boney M's version. Boney M first promoted it in a few TV shows in its early version "Going Back Home".

PS. All that stuff is from Wikipedia. Happy??
