Todays Throwback Track takes us all the way back to 2001 and this number 1 hit from Scooter “ARE YOU READY!??”.
‘Ramp! (The Logical Song)’ was a cover of a Supertramp hit from 1979 but that version didn’t feature that famous high pitched voice now did it!?
Scooter were around for years before this record became a hit, it was actually their 23rd single!! But this was the song that gained them a new legion of fans. You literally couldn’t go to school without hearing one of the lads whistling this one before double maths in the morning (yuck).
Then come lunch time you and your mates would be doing your best chipmunk voice and imitating the song – don’t act like you’ve never done it!
After school, we’d go home to do the homework and mammy would shout from the bottom of the stairs “Turn off that racket will ya? The neighbours will be complaining”.
We can now understand why mammy was so considerate – the song is VERY loud!
The video for ‘Ramp! (The Logical Song)’ features lots of engine noises and explosions which really hurt our ears (feck, we’re sounding like mammy now).
Anyway, we must admit we have a soft spot for this track and so do a lot of other people. It managed number 1 in Ireland for weeks when it was released so we know there’s lots of you hiding out there who still secretly love the song.
