Time for another installment of the Coulda-Shoulda-Woulda Files, where we blow the dust off of a forgotten favorite and give its lack of chart success a once-over.
Song: “Blossom (Got To Get It Out),” 2003
What happened: A long-running Swedish group with a treasure-trove of potential hit singles, Komeda’s H&M-meets-ABBA sound combined soapy, spastic arrangements and Lena Karlsson’s retro-fitted vocals. Alas, the band had more luck getting its songs on TV commercials than the radio, and its 2003 comeback effort Kokomemedada kokame and went in a flash.
Why it should have been a hit: Just try to shake off that opening bassline: Doo do do do, doo do do do. We can’t even stop writing it down!
