Da-da’s and La-La’s are pop mainstays–think 1999’s nonsensical Top 10 hit “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da” by The Police.
In 2013, Australian Alternative and Adult Alternative singer/songwriter Vance Joy raised the Da-da and La-la bar in “Riptide” and his newest, “Saturday Sun” includes more than a few “ba-ba-ba’s” in the chorus.
Deeper lyrically than the Police hit, “Saturday Sun” charms:
She left her books in my bed
And her song in my head
No ray of sunshine’s ever lost…
All signs point to success, for “Saturday Sun” on the music charts and on Joy’s summer tour, where he’ll be be joined by newcomer Alice Merton. BoomerMusicUpdate loves Alice Merton https://boomermusicupdate.com/top-40/powerhouse-women-beget-powerhouse-women/
Saturday Sun” is #5 on the Adult Alternative chart.
