If you were under the age of 18 in 2002 then your parents will have hated this song, which is what Pop Music should be all about. Every new generation needs it’s own identity.

”Ramp! (The Logical Song)” was at the time of release one of four new songs recorded to promote Scooter’s second singles compilation Album ‘Push the Beat for This Jam (The Second Chapter’) released in January 2002. The song is loosely based on the English Rock band Supertramp’s 1979 UK Number 7 single ‘The Logical Song,’ with songwriting credits given to Roger Hodgson of Supertramp, the production was done by Scooter. The lyrical content includes a nod to the ‘KLF’ (see also best songs 329) who Scooter have always acknowledged as a big influence. The song features all of Scooter’s usual trademarks including high pitched voice, and vocal improvisation.

‘When I was young it seemed that life was so wonderful, a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical, and all the birds in the trees, well they’d be singing so happily, so joyfully oh playfully, watching me.’
