#85 – Lou Bega – “Mambo No. 5 (A Little Bit Of…)” – (1999)

Oh, Lou Bega. Your potential as a pop megastar was so large. What happened? You can’t release a song like this and slip out of the mainstream. It’s too good… Anyway, Lou Bega’s background is quite… multi-cultural. His mother is Sicilian, his father is Ugandan. He grew up and lives in Germany. His most famous song is about Cuban music and I absolutely love it to this day. He did have a small follow-up single, “Tricky, Tricky.”
