This Day in History August 3, 1996

Los Del Rio - Macarenafound onDance                              
I remember the popularity of this dance, but I had no idea that it went all the way back to this date.  Yes, it was on this date in 1996 that the Macarena reached the top of the American music charts.  And the video above features that wonderful group--Los Del Rio.  Please don't feel you have to listen to the entire song--it does get annoying after a while!  But I remember the students I was teaching around that time could not get enough of the song!  And guest how long the song stayed on the charts.  60 weeks!  Good grief, how pathetic!  In 2002, VH1 ranked it #1 One-Hit Wonder of All-Time.

I think I learned to dance the macarena at some point, but I would rather forget that!  But maybe you have fond memories of it.  Feel free to share, if you like.  And if you would like more information (yes, there is more, I did not tell you everything!), please check out:
