Snap! is een Duitse eurodance- en rapact die in eerste helft van de jaren negentig grote successen boekte. De groep wordt opgericht door de producers Benito Benites (Michael Münzing) en John "Virgo" Garrett III (Luca Anzilotti).

Bijzonder aan Snap! is, behalve de snelheid waarmee de act rappers (foto: Turbo B.) en zangeressen verslijt, de constante reeks hits. Tussen de eerste hit The Power (4 weken nummer 1 in 1990) tot en met The First The Last Eternity (Til The End) uit 1995 eindigen maar liefst 11 singles op rij in de top 10. Daartussen zit ook de eurodance-klassieker Rhythm Is A Dancer, dat eveneens vier weken op 1 staat en in punten gemeten de allergrootste hit van 1992 was.

Na The World In My Hands (#37 in 1995) en Rame (#28 in 1996) droogt het hitsucces op. Er verschijnen nog wat remixes, maar die blijven hangen in de Tipparade.

Jaren later wordt Snap! veel geboekt als 90's-party's populair worden. In 2018 is Snap! één van de gast-acts bij de Toppers in de Johan Cruijff Arena.


Songtekst

Say oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Say oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Say oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Say oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh

Oh, ah, say oops upside your head, say oops upside your head
Everybody say op-ah-la, heyeyeyeyey, yeah, yeah
Say oops upside your head, say oops upside your head
Somebody say op-ah-la

This is a song about those bad days
Start out happy and end up sad days
Talkin' about that Murphy's Law
Chill if it can go wrong, yes, it will

Went to the store to cop some groceries
Friday night and I had the munchies
Filled the car 'till it couldn't take it
One more bag of chips would break it (Ah)

Everybody say oops upside your head, say oops upside your head
Somebody say op-ah-la
Everybody say oops upside your head, say oops upside your head
Everybody say op-ah-la

(Oooh)
Snap!

I've got the power! (He could break my heart)
(He could break my heart of hearts)
(He could break my heart)
(He could break my heart, he's got the power) I've got the power!

(Ohohoho)

I've got the power! (He could break my heart)
(He could break my heart of hearts)
(He could break my heart)
(He could break my heart, he's got the power) I've got the power!

(Ohohoho)

(It's gettin', it's gettin', it's gettin' kinda heavy)
(It's gettin', it's gettin', it's gettin' kinda heavy)
(It's gettin', it's gettin', it's gettin' kinda heavy)
This is the cult of Snap

The groove is quick but thick, no trick
Words are manifest, lyrics I lick
(Hype as hype and Snap made it hyper)
Beat to the brain like a bullet from a sniper

When the loser smooth like your cruiser
Beat the beat down, I'm the beat bruiser
On to off to off on and on
('Cause this is the cult of Snap)

Zoom ba hey iko mba hey ya
Zoom ba hey iko mba hey ya
Zoom ba hey iko mba hey ya
Iko iko iko wah hey ya

Zoom ba hey iko mba hey ya
Zoom ba hey iko mba hey ya
Zoom ba hey iko mba hey ya
Iko iko iko wah hey ya

Mary had a little boy but little did she know
That everywhere that Mary went the little boy was sure to go

Mary, a girl at a party
Pretty face, fantasy body
On the strength the girl was fine
Mission: make her mine

So I stepped to her shyly
Before I could speak she walked right by me
Frozen, lost my cool
Outta the groove, what's my next move

Mary had a little boy but little did she know, oho
That everywhere that Mary went the little boy was sure to go, oh, Mary, Mary
Mary had a little boy but little did she know, oho
That everywhere that Mary went the little boy was sure to go, oh, Mary, Mary
