"Whoot, There It Is" by Tag Team


"Whoomp! (There It Is)" is a number two Billboard Hot 100 single by the Miami bass group Tag Team. The song reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1993. The song's critical reception has been mixed, appearing on both best and worst of all time lists. It is frequently parodied and has also become a staple of sporting events.
 
For the whole history of how two songs with the same idea and chorus become top 20 Billboard hits in the same year, please read our academic analysis of the vicissitudes of life that made “Whoomp There It Is” or the slightly different “Whoot There It Is” the catchphrase of 1993.
But to keep it short and simple, we’re absolutely convinced that at least half the people who bought “Whoomp There It Is” by Tag Team thought they were buying “Whoot There It Is” by 95 South.

And can you really blame them?

Red, red wine
Go to my head
Make me forget that I
Still need her so
 
Red, red wine
It's up to you
All I can do, I've done
But memories won't go
No, memories won't go
 
I'd have thought
That with time
Thoughts of her
Would leave my head
I was wrong
And I find
Just one thing makes me forget
 
Red, red wine
Stay close to me
Don't let me be alone
It's tearin' apart
My blue, blue heart
 
 
 
 
 
(love this song)

Looking at the list of top songs for '93, two things come to mind:

1. Very solid year for one hitter wonders

2. I'm fully prepared to write a 6,500 word oral history of "Informer" when Snow is featured in one of these polls.

Bravo.
