The Friday OT: Republica; Ready to go

I adore one-hit wonders.

What makes this one great? Take a band put together from session players especially for the occasion who obviously don’t give a toss, a girl who has trouble holding a note at times, a truckload of 90’s video techniques and the combo still can’t ruin the fact that the song is wonderful chunk of pop catchiness. 
It’s also kind of a nod to the start of all the Olympic fun, name of the song and opening ceremony just a couple of hours away and all that. Dedicated to Amber.
