Today in music History: 1999

Oh, 1999.  I was a freshman in high school, riding the the bus like a boss, doing sit-ups to "Angel," and hating gym because of it.  Oh, and there was this little thing called the Latin explosion, and the first of many was...

"Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Maritn!

This song is so slick.  You can practically hear the producers in the background, directing him in every single movement he makes.  Catchy as hell, though.

The video was decent, nothing to write home about.  Clothes and hair were mostly normal.

I do remember this song being performed at the Grammys, I think, and everyone gave it rave reviews, possibly because expectations were so low.

I do rather enjoy the song, even if it is produced as all get out.

SIDE NOTE:  How did we not know Ricky Martin was gay??!
