#61 All That She Wants

#61 All That She Wants – Ace of Bass

According to the most hated of all self-referential random collections of (we who would be the font of all) what passes for (citation needing) knowledge, this track is “a dark fusion of dub-reggae”, at least so I’m told. What it actually is, is Swedish. Anyone who’s been to Sweden will have a fair idea of what is meant by that, and anyone who’s ever been to Gothenburg (birth place of my childhood pen-pal Marika Zsedely – hello, how are you?) will know exactly what I mean. So apparently,

Let's all learn English from a Swedish pop song (I kid you not)

did the German knife-weilding fan who broke into the home of Linn and Jenny and expressed dessent in the usual German fashion (that’s where neutrality gets you). Anyway neither of the girls were harmed (thank God) and before they even had time to turn round and hire bodyguards, their career took them off in a new direction (towards the UK and thence on to the US).

Why can't I listen to Ace of Bass?

For me this song will always be inextricably linked to that episode of South Park where they

Question asked, question answered

discover an ‘ice-man’: he who shall be named Steve. Cool song.

Lyrics

She leads a lonely life
She leads a lonely life

When she woke up late in the morning light
And the day had just begun
She opened up her eyes and thought
“Oh, what a morning”

It’s not a day for work
It’s a day for catching tan
Just lying on the beach and having fun
She’s going to get you

All that she wants is another baby
She’s gone tomorrow, boy
All that she wants is another baby, yea

All that she wants is another baby
She’s gone tomorrow, boy
All that she wants is another baby, yea

So if you are in sight and the day is right
She’s the hunter you’re the fox
The gentle voice that talks to you
Won’t talk forever

It is a night for passion
But the morning means goodbye
Beware of what is flashing in her eyes
She’s going to get you

All that she wants is another baby
She’s gone tomorrow, boy
All that she wants is another baby, yea

All that she wants is another baby
She’s gone tomorrow, boy
All that she wants is another baby, yea

All that she wants is another baby
She’s gone tomorrow, boy
All that she wants is another baby, yea

All that she wants is another baby
She’s gone tomorrow, boy
All that she wants is another baby, yea

All that she wants
All that she wants
