One Hit Wonders that the World Never Needed

[tps_title]5. Lou Bega: Mambo No.5[/tps_title]

The song was originally recorded in 1949 by a man named Damaso Perez Prado. Nobody paid attention to it. That is, until Lou Bega decided to make it into a cover song. The song hit the very top spot of the charts in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. His follow-up songs never gained the same kind of popularity. Was it because people realized that if someone were to make a cover song, it should’ve been something with more substance in it? Or, did people just get tired of hearing random names of women?
