Vengaboys 'We Like To Party (The Vengabus)'

Chart Peak: 3


'We Like To Party' was the second smash hit single from Vengaboys - Kim, Denice, Robin and Roy... The band have had massive success all over Europe with the track and it has started a new dance craze in Luxembourg, Belgium and Holland, where the single has already gone gold.

With all due respect to the Benelux countries, I do have to wonder how difficult it really is to earn a gold disc in Luembourg, or how one starts a dance craze with such generic dancing. Nonetheless, I do see 'We Like To Party' as the start of the Vengaboys as a pop act, rather than the one-off purveyors of 'Up & Down'. It's the start of them portraying the dancers as the faces of the act and even introduces the gimmick of the Vengabus, and thus spawned a lot of jokes about Arsene Wenger. It's a song that's kind of fun to hear once every few years, but quickly infuriating.
