Do you want the good news or the bad news first!?
Let’s start with the good news: Aqua are coming back!!
And now for the bad news: Aqua are coming back!!!
Whatever way you look at it, it’s both good and bad. Sure, Aqua were massive in the 90’s for their cheesy pop numbers including ‘Barbie Girl’, ‘Doctor Jones’ and ‘Cartoon Heroes’. But, they were more than just a gimmicky pop band and every now and then they recorded a song that made you think twice if this was the same group that told us we could brush their hair and undress them everywhere.
Today at Pint of Pop our Throwback Track is from Aqua and we’re not ashamed to say that. It’s the underrated pop gem ‘Turn Back Time’ that featured on that flick ‘Sliding Doors’ which starred Gwyneth Paltrow.
The song was a massive hit worldwide when it was released in 1998 and even managed to get to number 1. It really is such a shame that Aqua didn’t release more stuff like this and will forever been know as the group that did the ‘Barbie Girl’ song.
If you’re wondering what the group look like now, here’s a pic from them recently.
