Soundbyte!




Okay. I need some help with my song of the day:

Hanson - Mmmbop

I like this song - dont get me wrong. And it brings back memories of college. I thought the Hanson boys were so adorable especially Zack. But what is this song about? I have really tried to figure it out but i just dont get it. it does have a pretty catch chorous...mmmbop

hmmm I thought 'mmmbop' referenced an amount of time..
like in an mmmbop 'second' it's over, all gone..

LondonBuki said...

I never got it either. I liked the song too...

Noni Moss said...

Never got it although my best friend at the time LOVED the song - which i still think is very odd. It's like an 8 years old's song!

Uzo said...

@Soul: Hmm. Not getting the time thing. LOL. But i will listen again. I still love it

I think that it's about the fact that we don't understand a lot of stuff, but hey it doesn't matter and life goes on, let's just have fun anyway. (Got that from the 'it's a secret, no-one knows', and 'can you tell me, you say you can but you don't know' or something).

Other than that I think it's just words thrown together.

It's fun song, really like it. Whatever happened to Hanson?

Its a lie, I so loved the Hansons too, that song was hot back in the days! Those guys were cuties too!

Patrice said...

I think Soul is spot on, that 'Mmmbop' refers to a short period of time. This line from the song

In an Mmmbop they're gone

refers to the transience of most friendships, which is what the song is about and the reason it goes on to say that we should hang on to those friendships that mean something to us.

Daddy's Girl said...

Hmm.. Uzo you got me curious about this and I just checked wikipedia. Soul and Patrice are correct.

Please, call me uncool or whatever but I love this song! It's just such a summer song and it always makes me smile. I 'heard' that mmmbop was on the backing track for a different song and then they realised that it was actually pretty great on it's own son they turned it into a song. So I guess it doesn't really mean anything.

Uzo r ur music files been hosted on a site or how did u embed the player on ur site?

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

never heard this song in my life.. plz listen to Robin Thicke instead... a whole lot of things in life will begin to make sense.. trust me...

Uzo said...

Aha. Kudos to Soul and Patrice for cracking this. LOL. It actually makes sense now.

@ONG: I like Robin Thicke. U have never heard this song? LOL. Weird. Music for me doesnt always have to be intense. Fluffy songs like this one are nice too especially since it brings back so many memories of summer and friends.

@Naija Bloke: I got the help for embedding the music from DiamondHawk. LOL. I will try to remember what she said i needed to do
