If I didn’t know better, I’d expect a song about bongos to be Africa themed instead of an uplifting Trance song, but that’s what it is. With bongos of course. The secret to its success is its unexpected inclusion in club playlists, which then led to exposure on MTV, eventually leading to it being played at the opening ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, 2001 Eurovision and 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games. Played-A-Live eventually became so big that it was the fourth fastest selling song ever in Europe, which is an impressive feat for a duo that had made classical music for years. This is a song of nostalgia, so make sure to give it a listen.
