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

I say baby, baby, baby, baby
Say oop-a-la, say oop-a-la
I say baby, baby, baby, baby
Say oop-a-la

Here's what I want to do
Just put your hands in the air
And wave 'em like ya just don't care
Well, if ya really like me to rock real free
Somebody, say oh, yeah
Somebody, say yeah (yeah)
Somebody, say yeah (say yeah)

Chorus:
Say oops upside your head
Say oops upside your head
Everybody, say oops up
Say oops up
Hey, yeah, yeah
Say oops upside your head
I say oops upside your head
Somebody, say oops up
Say oops up

This is a song about those bad days
Start out happy and end up sad days
Talkin' about that Murphy's Law
If you think it go wrong, yes, it will
Went to the store to get some protein
Friday night and I had the munchies
Filled the gut 'til it couldn't take it
One more bag of chips would break it
Went to the checkout, stood in line
Behind me was a girl who was too fine
Got in the end, while they rang the total
Reached for my wallet, uh oh, a polo
Not my day, I felt like a dummy
Went to the store and forgot the money

Chorus x 2

Little Miss Muffet sat on the tuffet
Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
Said, "What's in the bowl, bitch"
Hey, yeah, yeah
"What's in the bowl, bitch"
Hey, I need a break

Me and Amy under the covers
Seeing us hot potential lovers
Demon in the sack is her reputation
If school is sex, she's the graduation
Touching, holding, heavy breathing
I knew I'd get her, she's mad about teasing
Left on the light so I could see reaction
Amy's a freak, guaranteed satisfaction
She's as soft as a bubble bath
I'm as hard as a Chinese math
Ready for the ultimate affection
Took out the packet, got my protection
Rolled it up in one hard stroke
It was my last thing, yes, it broke

Chorus (repeat and ad lib 'til end)
