Music Monday - Republica - Live at The Music Room

This week's Music Monday is dedicated to Republica. Remember them? Described as a "techno-pop punk rock" band, they had two hits in the 1990s, Ready to Go and Drop Dead Gorgeous. Well, it turns out they will be performing in Dubai on 13th January at The Music Room (Majestic Hotel). Besides their two hits, I really have no idea what else will they sing. Their website has no updated information and I'm worried their set will comprise of various versions of their two songs. Which will probably be hilarious and weird.

Ready to Go is one of my favourite songs from the 1990s and always puts me in a good mood. I also remember loving lead singer Saffron's hairdo, but alas, my curly hair would never allow this slick look .

I'm contemplating going to their show, but will probably depend on my mood on the day. For now, I'm just happy to jump and sing along...

"It's a crack, I'm back yeah standing / On the rooftops having it / Baby I'm ready to go / I'm back and ready to go / From the rooftops shout it out, shout it out"
