Friday Five: Super Pops Songs

Friday Five

Marianna is 100% obsessed with Totally TV - both their Disney princess pastiches and their original series, The Super Pops. (As I type this she is rolling around on the floor taking part in a Super Pops yoga positions challenge...)

It's not as great as the musical group that defined my early childhood, obviously. (I mean, come on, how can anything compare to Rod, Jane and Freddy's Dick Turnip the Naughty Highwayman??? What the Rainbow team would have given for a green screen though - just check out that home made cardboard carriage in the link!) But that's not to say it isn't good fun.

Some of the songs are pretty good too. They take me back to being eight years old listening to B*Witched and Lolly on my cassette walkman over and over again. Here are five of my favourites...

#5. Double Trouble

Mizeree and Dr WhoDoo have trapped the Super Pops at the circus. Shenanigans ensue. This is Marianna's favourite so I have lost track of how many times I've heard it.

#4. Rain On Me

"When you change the way you look at things, you're changing what you see." <3

#3. Friendship

When Bungler Psyphony's clone Hoppy turns good - and that's a sentence I never thought I'd type - she goes the full hog and joins the Rap Pops. To celebrate the girls sing an ode to friendship.

#2. Follow Your Dreams

The Latin Pops only joined the Pop line-up this month but Marianna has already listened to this dozens of times at least. It is incredibly catchy!

#1. The Man

"You got me sick and tired of you telling me to just be quiet...
This is a call for every woman, got to stick together and make a stand,
Anything is possible and we can do big things just like a man,
Everyone's got something to give, to make the world a better place to live,
One voice, one heart, together we stand: the woman, the boy, the girl, the man."

This one is super catchy and comes right on the back of Cosmic Pop explaining what misogyny is, why the guys don't have the right to just shout over them, and how they should all be on the same team. There's plenty of time for filling in the nuance, at five that's feminism 101 right there!

Have you ever seen The Super Pops? Let me know in the comments! :)

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
