This by The Dit­ty Bops, from their self-titled de­but al­bum in 2004. I’d nev­er heard of them be­fore, nor have I since; but this is a re­mark­able song and more than one friend, hear­ing it in the back­ground, has stopped talk­ing and asked “What’s that?”

The Dit­ty Bops are a fe­male duet with (on this al­bum) tight har­monies and tune­ful tunes, with singing that is ath­let­ic and grace­ful. They sound very young. Ooh La La is fast and tight and a tor­rent of words hur­tles by: Was it the fight­ing was it the fist / Was it ad­ven­ture with a jeal­ous twist / Was it de­sire for another's kiss / What brought the house down? Every time I put it on, I’m glad I did. Now I’m cu­ri­ous if they ev­er did any­thing else.

Links · Ama­zon, Spo­ti­fy, couldn’t find it on iTunes, live video - more fuzz, with band. Both videos drop some of har­monies; nei­ther ap­proach­es the qual­i­ty of the record­ed ver­sion.

Whoa! Another grand slam. Keep this up and this will be my best year *ever* when it comes to music discovery. Thank you.

thank you, this is great fun..

Spotify has a whole lot more, including the note 'in 2006 their sophomore album Moon over the Freeway was released, accompanied by a nationwide bicycle tour'.

My kind of band..
