The Wannadies were a Swedish alternative rock band who never received the success they deserved. Their most famous hit song 'You and Me', originally a flop, was re-recorded on 'Bagsy Me', their fourth album and it remains the best known recording on this CD, but it is far from the best.
The track 'Hit' was also issued as a single and did briefly dip into the UK top 20, but 'Bagsy Me' only made the lower regions of the top 40 in 1997 despite being a strong record from start to finish.
The album has a great vibe, and the songs are varied and excellent. 'Friends' is a fun track to put you in a good mood, 'Someone Somewhere' is about someone leaving their hometown and what/who they are familiar with in order to find better things, but they promise to return one day, this is a very good song and manages to overshadow 'You and Me', with it's completely different lyrics and story.
This album is fairly typical punk pop from the 90s, but The Wannadies were a band who deserve a larger fan base. If you want an album with immediately catchy tunes to uplift you - I unhesitantly recommend this.
