According to my friend Wikipedia, the Macarena (or the version everybody knows anyway) is 27 years old today.

Let's all celebrate this cultural touchstone of the 90's by chatting about it on America Online while the latest episode of Friends runs in the background.

There was a GHOST here. It's gone now.




I will die knowing this dance.
If I have Alzheimer's I will still be able to do it.

fun fact:

The song is just called "Macarena"

The dance that goes with the song is THE Macarena. There's no "the" in the song title

This is a good video, watched it a few days ago or whenever it came out and it was great to see the story behind the song that was loving everywhere back then. Incredible that it was two obscure Spanish guys.
