Whoomp! (There It Is) vs. Whoot, There It Is
When my power returned yesterday evening, I blurted out "I've got the power!". I was channeling Snap! who had a hit with the song in 1990.
The Power made me think of similar pop-rap hits in the early 90s. Naturally, I remembered that time two songs shared the same chorus...
In 1993, 95 South released "Whoot, There It Is". One month later, Tag Team released "Whoomp! (There It Is)".
Here's 95 South's "Whoot, There It Is":
And here's Tag Team's "Whoomp! (There It Is)":
Despite the fact the choruses are almost identical, they're otherwise completely different songs. Interestingly enough, both songs charted on the Billboard chart at the same time. "Whoot, There It Is" peaked at #11 and "Whoomp! (There It Is)" peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
