Da Da Da

Some of you might not be familiar with this song. It became a hit in Europe in 1982 and became popular 15 years later when it was used in a Volkswagen commercial. The single was rush released in 1997 to capitalize on its new found popularity.

The full name of the song is "Da Da Da du liebst mich nicht du liebst mich nicht aha aha aha," which translated to English as "Da Da Da I don't love you you don't love me aha aha aha." It was shortened to "Da Da Da" when released in the US. Most of the lyrics are in German with some English words thrown in.

The Volkswagen commercial that made this famous was called "Sunday Afternoon." It featured two young men driving around in a Jetta, picking up an old chair by the side of the road, realizing it smells and dropping it back off, all while this song is playing.

After the commercial started running, US radio stations began getting requests for this song. They had a hard time finding it, as it was only available on an obscure collection - Sedated In The '80s, Volume 3.

In Manila, 99.5RT played this song in Casey Kasem's Sunday afternoon program American Top 40. And it became an instant hit.

Trio (sometimes written TRIO) who popularize this song was a German band that formed in 1980 and disbanded in 1985.
