It's catchy as all get-out, has a chorus that lingers like poison ivy, and adds unlimited spoonfuls of zip spin after spin. Decamping to Nashville for 2 months of intensive writing the girl group shared their vision for a song that summed up their artistic ennui, and their view that life, an enchanting and fleeting dance, contained infinitesimal nuances that we could rarely grasp. In any case, open-minded programmers who have had success with Britney Spears or Cleopatra should certainly give this a meaningful spin and let their audiences have a chance to catch on to the magic of this fearless track.

We had tried to distract the girls with more prostitutes, but they had grown tired of the music industry when they realised how much money they could make from selling heroin,” Richie Stern, the band’s manager at the time revealed. C’est La Vie was released as a single on the 25th of May in 1998 but seeds were sown 12 months earlier as the girl group made up of Sinead, Keavy, Edele and Lindsay were paired with a songwriting team by their label. The chorus was then recorded in Vietnam, but the band became distracted by the local drug trade and became embroiled in a turf war with the leading supplier of heroin in the area.

The final days of the music industry’s irresponsible overspending and largesse saw the band record one line of vocal for each verse, then flying in a private jet to the different recording studios, rotating until the recording was finished.

To be fair the song itself was quite catchy, but the music video is where its iconic status really comes from. Management had to break up a particularly violent fight, which saw Stoller lose a leg and an eye after he protested that the line went against the overtly pacifist ideals of the song.

Let's take a look back and examine what exactly was going on in the music video for the teen pop hit.It served as their debut single and the lead single from their self-titled debut studio album (1998).

Both Leiber and Stoller claimed the lyrics to be their Mona Lisa, even surpassing their iconic Stand By Me but they fought intensely with the band during initial recordings when the band ad-libbed “I fight like me da as well”. C'est la Vie" debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart on 31 May 1998 and remained at the top the following week. The song features many cheeky double entendres; the band commented in 2013 that "it went over children's heads, but the parents got the innuendos. If you want to get involved in the world of tech, why not apply for the Vodafone Graduate Programme? Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, the song was a huge success for the band after it reached number one on the charts in various countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand.

The accompanying music video for the song features the four girls dancing around a lush green field full of bright flowers with a puppy as they playfully tease a teenage boy. A dog is introduced into the clip next to one of the girls and the quartet then begin dancing and singing to a teenage boy in a treehouse.

That's a shame, given the growing profile of this personable Dublin-based female quartet and its fine self-titled debut album. In a perfect world, this dancey helping of youth-oriented pop would have no problem conquering the States with its giddy melody and squeaky-clean teenage vocals, but sadly, top 40 has again entered one of those periods during which it shuns most any uptempo track that might be considered plain and simple fun. WHAT is often referred to as ‘Ireland’s Greatest Song’ C’est La Vie, sung by girl group B*Witched is fondly remembered by almost all of the country, but very little is known about the troubled writing and recording of the quintessential pop song of our times, that is, until now. Chuck Taylor of Billboard wrote, "This European creamsicle has already tickled the top of the European pop charts, and with good reason.C’est La Vie went on to sell 47 million copies in Ireland alone on its first day of release and the song went on to win a Grammy for Best Use Of An Irish Dancing Breakdown Section In A Video. The music video for the song was directed by Alison Murray, who later also directed the UK video for " Rollercoaster". This company procures the screams (and subsequently laughter) of children to create energy for an entire city. Weeks later, while high on LSD the group completed the vocals, with the particularly potent trip providing the inspiration for the song’s much celebrated video.
