your daily reminder that "Chocolate" by Soul Control is a real song

  • gonna burn this whole facade to the ground
    one of a number of weird faceless pop songs that have somehow managed to chart in Europe over the years alongside such numbers as "Who The X Is Alice" by Gompie, "U Got 2 Let The Music" by 'Capella, and "Around The World" by ATC. I made none of those up but would you really know if I did??
  • Acid Mammoth!!!!
    "Around the World" is rather catchy, actually.
  • gonna burn this whole facade to the ground
    Sure, so's "Chocolate".

    They're all just kinda weird is what I was getting at.
  • Acid Mammoth!!!!
    and there ain't nothing wrong with weird

    Jane I am disappointed in your choice of category for this thread
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Moved to the appropriate category.

    On that note, there's something deeply confusing about how sexual and sexless this song is at the same time. The fact that they're performing for what looks like a mostly unengaged crowd of picnicking Germans just takes it to another level and further underlines the intense late '90s/early '00s-ness of it all.

    the song was, in fact, released in Germany. Which I think it may have been a minor hit in? Info on this band is very hard to find.

    also

    every song in this...genre? is like that. Also check out "Sex On The Beach" by T-Spoon (which I have sampled!). Probably the most chaste song with 'sex' in the title in existence.

    The fact that they're very clearly lipsyncing to a studio recording makes it funnier too

    I actually fucking love this song, just for the record.

    I still think it's funny that Sredni had to move this to the correct category

    would the term "bubblegum pop" be applicable to this type of song?
  • gonna burn this whole facade to the ground
    No, I don't think so.
  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    It's more like... chocolate soda.

    unengaged picknicking middle-aged Germans

    scientifically the worst possible audience for any musical event that isn't 5 hours of valkyries written by an asshole

    "Soul Control" is a terrible name


  • “His thoughts were red thoughts, and his teeth were white.”
    Soul Control sounds like it should be a gospel/power metal crossover act.
  • soul control sounds like the name of the token edgy anti-religion song by a european metal band that normally sings about orcs

    Kenji Nakamura directed that show. I've seen I think two episodes of it? It's really odd.

    One thing I didn't really appreciate before is that they're both lipsynching even in the parts where there's clearly only one voice. (Including the spoken part at the beginning.)
