Aqua's 'Greatest Hits' Should Tide You Over Till The Maybe/Maybe Not New Ace Of Base Album

Aqua's Greatest Hits—complete with new songs "Back To The 80's," "My Mamma Said" and "Life Fast - Die Young"—was released in the U.S. today.

The lyrical content and video for new single "My Mamma Said" are both creepy affairs. At one point it sounds like gravel-voiced René Dif is singing, "Mamma just cross-dressed, cross-dressed," while he's eating raw meat at a funeral. Hot.

Love the video, and the haunting song is strangely compelling. Well, more so than "Back To The 80's." Don't get me started on that one again.

    She sounds like Britney's daughter, or the worrying thoughts of any child of Britney's perhaps.

    Rene's husband is gorgeous and he is 41 - I never thought so 12 years ago!

    Realsugar, Love the name! It makes me think of sweet things, which is great since you're such a whoreboxx!

    Undisco Me, They've all held up surprisingly well, looks-wise! That "Barbie Girl" cash must buy a lot of botox.

    If I'm not mistaken, having just listening to the cut of 'Back to the 80's' that was 'out there' several months ago and the 'Greatest Hits' cut... there's one huge lyrical change. Do you think this has to do with the death of a certain mega star?

    ALSO: Anyone else notice hoe Mattel is now using 'Barbie Girl' in one of their Barbie ads? 10 years ago they wanted to sue Aqua. How times change.

    I hated their last single but this is quite nice is a disturbing kind of way. Classy video for a change too. Nice to see someone spending more than $2 on it.
