Throwback Thursday ‘C’est La Vie’ by B*Witched (1998)
I try not to repeat Throwback Thursday songs, but I remember how annoyed Andy was the last time I did this song that I thought it was worth doing it again! Plus, it's St. Patrick's Day on Sunday! So two birds with one stone!
Plus, on the new Hulu show Pen15, the main characters are big B*Witched fans and it got me all nostalgic.
According to Wikipedia:
"C'est la Vie" is a song by Irish girl group B*Witched. It served as their debut single and the lead single from their self-titled debut studio album (1998). Written by band members Edele Lynch, Keavy Lynch, Lindsay Armaou and Sinéad O'Carroll, Ray "Madman" Hedges, Martin Brannigan and Tracey Ackerman, it was released by Epic Records in May of 1998. Initially seen as a cheesy nonsensical pop song, the band finally revealed in 2013 that the song was really about sex, masturbation and fellatio.
WHAT?!?! 12- year old me is devastated!
More from Wikipedia:
Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, the song was a huge success for the band after it reached number one on the charts in various countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand. In the process, B*Witched became the youngest girl group ever to have a UK number one. In the United States, "C'est la Vie" reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100.
The accompanying music video for the song features the four girls dancing around a lush green field full of bright flowers with a puppy as they playfully tease a teenage boy.
"C'est la Vie" has been featured in numerous films and television shows since its release in 1998, including Smart House(1999), Daria (1999), What Women Want (2000) and Life-Size (2000).
