  • Pedrodynomite from Fremont, OhioHoly Moly I totally forgot about this song. The 2000's, in my opinion, was the worst decade for music but alot of the dance stuff I did like (and whatever mainstream pop there was)
  • Cindy from Tempe, AzDoes anyone know who the girl in the video is (the actual video, not the Diet Coke commercial) who catches the falling star and walks over to Shifty and starts kissing him?
  • Danielle from Swanton, OhI love this song in that diet coke commercial.. it fits nicely with the bouncing bubbles.
  • Jonny Sapienti from Salem, NhIt might be me, but this song really sounds like the singer is on Ecstacy or something...
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesHas anyone else noticed an uncanny similarity between this song and OPM's 2001 hit "Heaven Is A Halfpipe"?
  • Simon from Newcastle, Englandgreat spot michiel! i really like both songs but never realised theyre the same. thanks
