Blast From The Past-Nizlopi

I know that this song isn’t very old and that most of you haven’t forgot it but I don’t care I still think that it deserved a spot in my “Blast From The Past” archive. This was such a simple song that the world fell in love with. Its still as good listening to it today! Nizlopi singing “JCB Song”

According to Wikipedia:

“JCB Song” is Nizlopi’s most successful song, reaching number one in the UK on its second release. The song was written about Luke’s troubles with dyslexia at school and his escape to accompany his dad at work, and was released as a single in June 2005, reaching number 160 in the UK Singles Chart. The single was then re-released in the UK on 12 December 2005, reaching number one the following week on 18 December 2005, selling more than twice the number than the closest contender, Westlife. Dermot O’Leary gave the track extensive airplay on his BBC Radio 2 show. Some bookmakers put it in the running for the honour of Christmas number one but it was beaten by the winner of the second series of the UK version of The X Factor, Shayne Ward‘s debut single “That’s My Goal“. The video has received widespread airplay, mainly on music TV channel VH1. It is an animated video, made by Laith Bahrani (a.k.a. ‘Monkeehub’), who also animated an unofficial video for an acoustic version of “Creep” by Radiohead. In 2007 Nizlopi received an Impala Platinum award recognising sales of over 500,000 copies of “JCB Song” across Europe.
