Review of the BARBIE GIRL SINGLE
B. Stevens | 04/20/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Unlike the other reviews, which are all about how much the reviewer is obsessed with the song, this review is about the CD and the songs on it.
To start off, I find this song catchy and fun, but even a fan of aqua can (and probably will) get sick of this song after a while of repeated listenings, but that is no reason to enjoy it while you can.
Now, for the review of the actual CD-single of Barbie Girl:
This CD has four songs, with a total time of approx. 22 minutes, with the first track being the regular album version of the title song, and the other three songs are remixes of the same song.
The second track, the "extended edit" is pretty much just that, an extended version of barbie girl.
The Third song, Perky park club mix, is OK, but not as enjoyable as the original, mostly because you can't sing with it since it is just a mix of parts of the song and not nearly as perky as the title suggests.
The fourth and last track (Spikes anatomically correct mix)is mostly just a beat with some of the barbie girl tune in it and parts of the dialog from the original song. The last track is over 7 minutes long, but in my opinion, the worst song on the disc. It starts out with a stretched-out "Laaaaaaughing Plaaaaastic" that could truly give someone nightmares, and the rest of the song is not sing-a-long-able at all.
So all-in-all, while the original song is fine and dandy, and sure to be stuck in your head until the day you die, the remixes on this CD are not that memorable and most certainly not as fun as the album version. If you still want to purchase this CD-single, or if you are a completest, go ahead and get it; you might enjoy it immensely, but I was slightly disappointed."
A fun, catchy, disposable pop song

"Back in 1997, I was completely into europop music. One of my favorite songs was that ridiculously silly "Barbie Girl" song by Aqua. I loved the song so much that I bought the single of the song (prior to their studio album). I really wasn't big on the remixes. I did like the extended version but Spike's Anatomically Correct Dub and Plastic Mix were repetitive and quickly got on my nerves. I have never liked dub mixes. They are pointless IMO. What I didn't like about Spike's Plastic Mix of the song was the repetitive introduction to the song but eventually once the vocals kicked in, I started getting into the song. Still I think the remix could have been done better maybe by someone like Tony Moran who manages to turn Celine Dion's cheesy "My Heart Will Go On" into a great dance song. Seven years later, I can't believe I liked this tripe but you got to admit that it was addictively catchy and hard not to sing along to."
