I’m almost ashamed to mention it, but ‘Boom boom boom boom’ is also a song performed by the Venga Boys, a Dutch band that became famous in Japan and Europe by flooding the music market with tasteless, mechanic pop songs, all major hits. With ‘boom boom boom boom’ they instantly became millionaires and perhaps even the most successful Dutch band ever. Somehow that makes me feel very, very sad.

If you think my judgment is scathing, just check out those lyrics:

Boom boom boom boom,
I want you in my room.
Let’s spend the night together,
for now and forever.

(repeated approximately 30 times)

Well, the masses liked it. But if you have a choice, please listen to John Lee Hooker’s version. That’s music.
