About How Bizarre

"How Bizarre" is a single written and recorded by New Zealand musical group OMC. It was released in December 1995 as the lead single from the group's debut album of the same name, and went on to top the charts in at least five countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand. Outside New Zealand, OMC are generally considered a one-hit wonder; they had a further few successful singles in New Zealand, including "Land of Plenty". The song was featured in the 1998 movies Palmetto and Disney's The Parent Trap and plays at the start of the first episode of the second season of American sitcom Clueless.

Brother Pele's in the back
Sweet Zina's in the front
Cruisin' down the freeway in the hot, hot sun
Suddenly red-blue lights flash us from behind
Loud voice booming
"Please step out onto the line"
Pele preaches words of comfort
Zina just hides her eyes
Policeman taps his shades
"Is that a Chevy '69?"

How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre

Destination unknown as we pull in for some gas
A freshly pasted poster reveals a smile from the past
Elephants and acrobats, lions, snakes, monkey
Pele speaks "righteous," Sister Zina says "funky"

How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre

Ooh, baby (ooh, baby)
It's making me crazy (it's making me crazy)
Every time I look around (look around)
Every time I look around (every time I look around)
Every time I look around
It's in my face

Ringmaster steps out, says "The elephants left town"
People jump and jive and the clowns have stuck around
TV news and cameras, there's choppers in the sky
Marines, police, reporters ask where, for and why
Pele yells, "We're outta here," Zina says, "Right on"
Making moves and starting grooves before they knew we were gone
Jumped into the Chevy, headed for big lights
Wanna know the rest? Hey, buy the rights

How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre

Ooh, baby (ooh, baby)
It's making me crazy (it's making me crazy)
Every time I look around (look around)
Every time I look around (every time I look around)
Every time I look around
It's in my face
It's in my face

Ooh, baby (ooh, baby)
It's making me crazy (it's making me crazy)
Every time I look around (look around)
Every time I look around (every time I look around)
Every time I look around
It's in my face

Ooh, baby (ooh, baby)
It's making me crazy (it's making me crazy)
Every time I look around (look around)
Every time I look around (look around)
Every time I look around
It's in my face

OMC

OMC, or Otara Millionaires Club, was a New Zealand music group. They were best known for their 1996 hit "How Bizarre", named one of the greatest New Zealand songs of all time by the Australasian Performing Right Association. The full name of the band is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Otara's status as one of the poorest suburbs of Auckland. more »
