Song of the Day: Dragostea din tei

Today’s song is Dragostea din tei by O-Zone.

This song is a classic, and yeah, the meme material is still there.
Apart from the silliness, it is still a solid dance-pop track from a Moldovan pop group.
It’s just a ton of fun.

Ma-i-a hi, Ma-i-a hu,
Ma-i-a ho, Ma-i-a ha-ha.

Everyone from my generation likely knows this track. It’s from Numa Numa.

Many recognize it as one of the first ‘viral’ videos they can remember.
I recently learned that it was on Newgrounds first, which I didn’t expect, but I’m happy to know of.
This song may live on in infamy (until it is eventually lost on it’s significance with newer generations).
