B*Witched are an Irish quartet, consisting of twins, Edele and Keavy Lynch, Lindsay Armaou and Sinéad O’Carroll, who burst onto the scene with their debut single, ‘C’est La Vie’, back in 1998.

The song was such a huge success with its unique brand of upbeat, Irish-themed pop and peaked at Number 1 in the UK Charts. The track was filled with a series of double entendres and in 2013, the girl group revealed that it was in fact about sex.

This song kicked off a hugely successful (albeit relatively short) career, with their next three singles all peaking at Number 1 in the UK Charts, and both their albums also reached inside the Top 5!

The music video was bright, vibrant, super cheesy and downright fun, featuring the girls’ iconic denim-on-denim style, which became a signature part of their branding.

Has it really been 15 years since Holly Valance released ‘Kiss Kiss’? Well at the start of May 2017, the song will be 15 years old and boy has time gone quickly for this track!

‘Kiss Kiss’ was Holly Valance‘s debut single after breaking away from her acting career in the Australian soap, Neighbours and it quickly rocketed to Number 1 in the UK charts. As a result of this, Valance had a string of hits and a couple of albums during the early 00s but since then, has been relatively quiet on the musical front, instead concentrating on being an ambassador for Disability Rights International.

What a great song and a brilliant blast from the past! Please share this post and re-live some memories 🙂
