Music: Katrina And The Waves
Katrina and the Waves was an English New Wave
/Rock band active between 1981-1999, known for exactly two things: writing the song "Walking on Sunshine" and having, in retrospect, a really unfortunate band name
. Its members were: vocalist and guitarist Katrina Leskanich, guitarist Kimberley Rew
, bassist Vince de la Cruz and drummer Alex Cooper.
They recorded a bunch of albums, but the only song that everybody knows is their upbeat 1985 hit single "Walking on Sunshine". They had a few more singles chart, technically saving them from being a One-Hit Wonder
, but nobody remembers them. They suddenly became big again when their song "Love Shine a Light" won the 1997 Eurovision contest and became their biggest hit in the UK, but dissolved a few years later.
Apart from the fact that "Walking on Sunshine" is Philip J. Fry
's favourite song, and also the theme of The Stephanie Miller Show
, there really isn't anything else to say about them.
