THE WISHLIST OF AN AQUA FAN… SANTA ARE YOU THERE?

Filed under: Aqua — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — RichardGriffin @ 5:45 PM

Aqua (Live in concert)

Aqua (Live in concert)

Christmas is coming, did you write your letter to Santa Claus?!
While we wait for some news from the band, I thought it was a nice idea to write down all the songs that a die-hard-fan like us would kill for!

Aqua split up in 2001, in the middle of the recording sessions for the 3rd album.
Some of the songs were ready and presented live during Aqua tour in 2000/2001. Those songs were “Hi-fi stereo”, “Shakin’ Stevens”, “Wow wow wow” and “Coach potato”.
Rough live recordings of the first 3 songs can be found on the web, while “Coach potato” is totally missing.
10 seconds of the studio version of “Shakin’ Stevens” were added on Aqua’s MySpace page in 2008, mixed with other Aqua songs and another unreleased song (probably a cover of Dean Martin track called “Everybody Loves Somebody”).

Will we ever hear the whole studio versions of these five songs originally written for the never released 3rd album?
Only time will tell!

With a surprising announcement Aqua reunited in 2007 for a Danish tour to be held in 2008.
During the shows a new song, called “Back to the 80’s”, was presented to the audience.
The song became a single in 2009 but maybe not everyone knows that the first version was a little bit different from the single version.
A very nice bridge between the verse and the chorus was, infact, deleted from the final version and the chorus melody has been changed a little. It would be a dream to have also the studio version of this first edit because it was really great!
During the concerts Aqua played also a new version of “Shakin’ Stevens”, with a rock mood. The song became “Sucker for a superstar” on Megalomania album but many fans are still in love with this version and its lyrics.

Finally in 2011 the band released Megalomania, a totally brand new album, and in summer 2012 Aqua declared on their Facebook page that two new songs were ready! Will the adventure continue? 2014 is at the doors… we just have to wait and see!

So Santa Claus, we have been so good this year… make our wishes come true and spin us a Christmas! With no hurry ;)

- Hi-Fi Stereo
- Wow Wow Wow
- Coach Potato
- Shakin’ Stevens (2001 version)
- Everybody loves somebody
- Back to the 80’s (2008 version)
- Shakin’ Stevens (2008 version)
