Avoid This EuroPAP Guff Or It'll Encourage Others!
on 7 November 2001
"Yeah, I heard it this summer in Europe", he says sarcastically. In EVERY European country I visited, actually. Over and over again, to be more precise. And you know what? It's as terrible now as it was the first time I heard it! Plainly speaking, this is one of those 'novelty' summer records that manages to stick with you long after the summer sun has set. There's no denying it's a catchy song. Then again, so was Black Lace's "Agadoo" when I first heard it. It's one of those songs where your mates make an ar$e of themselves singing it whilst drunk. Or when other drunken louts wake you at 7am while on holiday when you're desperate for sleep. Yeah, 'annoying' is how I'll remember "Hey Baby (Uhh Ahh)" as being.
Ties with Afroman's "Because I Got High" as the worst number one single of 2001.
