Proudly from New Zealand, O.M.C produced probly the most parodied song of the 90's. The most famous 'Stole the car'.
I remember being on holiday in Queensland when everybody was using the term 'How Bizarre'!

#78 Triple J Hottest 100 (1996)

Peaked at #4 on my personal.

Came in at #95 on my official TOP 100 list of 1996.

Pretty cool song.
*****
Almost what you would call a hybrid song (genre), from New Zealand group OMC (Otara Millionaires Club). It has been categorised as pop rock, even reggae. I particularly like the spanish style melodies and background bass that comes through. A hit internationally. It was something different at #1 and was a refreshing change.
****
Very silly but still have some sentimental value for it.

Cool song, sad about the lead singer's death.
****
Very catchy song, the chorus works really well but the verses are a bit nothingish.
*****
Cool track.
****
kinda good
*****
Classic easy listening music from across the Tasman.
***
Tolerable, but I can't believe this became such a hit!
****
This was inescapable growing up (especially being from Otara) and I hated it for that reason. But now I don't mind it.
****
4 stars
***
Decent 90's hit.
******
More than great actually, it's amazing. Love the very chilled out instrumentation which sounds like a mesh of many different genres. One of my favourite Kiwi tracks of all time. Happy that it was a big worldwide hit and especially a big hit in Australia.
