16 June 2012 - OMC - How Bizarre

The biggest hit to come out of New Zealand, ever, How Bizarre was a huge, unexpected hit in 1996.  HUGE.  The song was everywhere.  It was a cool, laid-back summer song, perfect for cruising down the road.  Which they do in this video. A lot.  Some people love it; some people hate it.  No one can deny that it was huge, and huge everywhere.

Sadly, Pauly Fuemana, the lead vocalist of this band, passed away in 2010 at the age of 40, a vicitim of a rare respiratory disorder.  His death caused a resurgence of interest in this song.
