The light song is not a summer thing. Not two. Not three. The summer song is linked to this season of the year and threatens to stay for life rumbling in your ears and in your head forever. All the summer songs are fun, damn catchy and absurd for a long time. But they are here to liven up an entire summer season of bad taste and entertainment.
They are free and there, on YouTube, at the mercy of anyone who wants one of these two things. Option A: have a great time without knowledge or restraint. Option B: give anyone the afternoon and probably the whole summer. Whether you contemplate one way or the other, we will provide material so you don’t lack anything.
Here you have two dozen fun and absurd summer songs on a platter. They come without wrapping or anything. These things better without contemplation. All you have to do, if you dare, is to hit the play button.
1. There is no beach here – The Refrescos
This first summer nonsense arose in 1989, but to top it off, Los Refrescos (that was the name of the group that succeeded with this move) have made a version again. This second crime was committed in 2004 and here we are to remind you.
2. Chiki Chiki, Rodolfo Chikilicuatre
It was 2008 when Andreu Buenafuente came up with the idea that it would be a good idea to laugh a little at Eurovisión. He managed to get Rodolfo Chikilicuatre (David Fernández) to embark with his five dancers (among whom, by the way, was Silvia Abril). As planned, we made a fool of ourselves (although that’s not new) and then we sang and danced to it all summer. One, the brikidans …
3. Eat me the donut – Lapipi and Giraffe King
I come with you, I put a steak on you / I do not buy a follower and you do / I bring you to the kit (kat), the face left – ah / I leave it in glitch gyal, 32bit goes / Get ready, get ready, get ready for ‘the hit / Coming now / Eat me the donut, eat me the donut. This starts as bad as it ends. These lyrical geniuses don’t give a damn about making a fool out of themselves of jerky movements. We have no words for more.
4. Bomba – King Africa
How could the legendary King Africa be missing in a ranking of absurd summer songs? Well here you have it, with the greatest summer success of all time. How many times did it ring in the summer of 2000? And at your cousin’s wedding? Shut up, shut up … is thinking about it and bringing back memories of those times when you danced and sang Boooooooomba loudly, right? Better to wear a thick veil: that two decades have already passed.
5. Opá, I traveled a corral – El Koala
And we are going with another character who at the time left us stunned. He vindicated the rural thing with a song that wanted to be a kind of rock, but that remained in a mix between plaid shirts, straw, chickens and beanies. Can anyone guarantee that animals and people did not suffer when recording that video?
6. The beach bar – Georgi Dann
Stop machines, here is the king of summer songs. He is, with all our respect, the king of the light, summery and silly song: Georgie Dann. It will not be the first time that we talk about this good man and his endearing successes. The beach bar is one of the most representative songs of any summer worth its salt. So, here you have it.
7. Sexy Summer – Aless Gibaja
The one with this boy has no waste. Let’s say that, at a minimum, it is to lock up. But if you want to have a laugh at his expense, here is a succulent video in which he lends himself to all kinds of taunts, insults and derisions. The poor man dances to the sound of a very Martian song (if someone has the nose to call it a song) among unicorns and other oddities. If you can take ten seconds, you deserve an award.
8. Asejeré – The Ketchup
Do you remember these three girls? They are the daughters of Tomatito and they called themselves Las Ketchup. No one knew how to decipher very well what was the hidden message that was in the lyrics of the song, but the truth is that people spent the summer dancing and trying to hit the choreography. And so his story ended.
9. Mayonnaise – Chocolate
It is seen that the sauces are for the summer. Although it seems impossible to you today, this song became famous not one summer, no … but several. It had choreography included and it wasn’t wasted either. It was, for a long time, a central hit in weddings, baptisms and communions.
10. Waka, Waka – Shakira
We arrived at the summer song number ten with the certainty that the songs that succeed do not have to be located in the field of logic. Not much less. And if you don’t remember the song Shakira popularized for the World Cup in South Africa. That in which Iniesta’s goal led us to stardom, just ten years ago. In the official song, Waka, Waka, was tirelessly repeated. And it triumphed. The dance is perfect for making a fool of yourself as a family.
11. Follow the Leader – SBS
This was the song of the summer and of all time: weddings, baptisms and communions. With a choreography, let’s say, little worked, everything consisted of following the leader (that is, the brother-in-law who is at one end of your row) with his finger raised. And then the other way around. No, don’t deny it. Even if you tried to erase it from your mind, all those dances are registered in VHS. Maybe this summer you want to repeat it and upload it to Instagram.
12. The BBQ – Georgie Dann
We return to the load (because it is a tremendous load) with Georgie Dann and his other great success: The barbecue. It is present whenever someone organizes one, especially if it is in summer. Be brave and then try to get it out of your head. WILL NOT BE ABLE. There is something ancient and mystical that prevents you.
13. Macarena – Los del Río
If they had done it on purpose, it wouldn’t have been better. The Macarena song was catapulted as a worldwide success back in 1993. Even Bill Clinton danced it in public and these Sevillian gentlemen lined up, of course. To dance it you don’t have to go to any academy. Now, if you are arrested for ridicule it is not our thing.
14. Don’t break my poor heart anymore – Coyote Dax
Well, a separate mention deserves Coyote Dax and its not break anymore. Put your hand on the Bible right now and swear that you did not try to take those ridiculous steps to the rhythm of Aunt Encarnita at your cousin’s wedding. What madness, huh? Mendos years those. Ahem, we don’t have a Bible around here.
15. The Flying Cat – El Chombo
In the chapter of disturbing songs is that of The Flying Cat. A thing from another planet that was sung by a certain El Chombo. Do not ask us what is the meaning of this succession of ancient cries, because we have found no explanation. We haven’t even been able to find out what substance they ingested before composing such a thing.
16. The Shark – Project One
Let’s continue with the selection of songs dedicated to animals. “There is the shark / There is the shark / The shark took it, the shark / Don’t stop, go on, go on, don’t stop, go on, go on / Don’t stop, go on, go on, don’t go on, go on, go on.” It is all you have to know to sing it. And at this point we must ask ourselves, how will humanity have survived until today?
17. Making love – Dinio
From the creator of “La noche me confunde” is the hit “Hasiendo el amor”, with misspelling included, because it is in the nature of the specimen. Dinio, who rose to fame for becoming Marujita Díaz’s boyfriend, sang a song years ago with which he triumphed in various discos and televisions. Intelligent life was neither expected nor expected.
18. Stick – Ylenia
Years later this lady arrived, her name is Ylenia and she seems to have some problem when pronouncing. The thing is, basically, to touch yourself a lot and make jerky movements. Something like a good sample of why we tend to look bad in the PISA report.
19. Micromania – Tata Golosa
Don’t try to make sense of this song, because neither this woman, who sang it, knew very well how to decipher what she was saying. It seems that this lady was Italian and emulated orgasms as the song progressed (song, to say the least). You will not complain about the selection: thank goodness it already ends.
20. La salchipapa – Leticia Sabater
And we say goodbye in this apocalyptic special with another one of those signs that the world is ending. Although to make things less serious, we have chosen a parody that Yolanda Ramos made of one of the tremendous hits that Leticia Sabater gives us every summer. Nor was it a matter of making your day more bitter. Ala, you suffer it, I say, enjoy it very much.
