Flashback Friday: The Shorts - Comment Ca Va
The Shorts were a Dutch boyband active during the 80's, and I'm sure they released quite a few wonderful tracks, but it's this irresistible single that they're most known for. You don't have to speak Dutch (or French) to enjoy this--though their is an English version available, if you're so inclined. It's one of those songs I could imagine being played at an Oktoberfest somewhere, which is not a bad thing at all. It's so easy to sing along to, and has the feel of a big, crowd-pleasing folk song. It's the kind of track that could have only come out of Europe. In fact, it's pretty much a stereotype of "European" music. This means that it probably sounds pretty chintzy and lame to some Europeans, but to a Yank like me, it's utterly charming.
