Unbelievable (3:30)

Cover of Schubert Dip

From Schubert Dip and 252 other releases

“Unbelievable” is a song written and recorded by EMF . It was released as a single in the UK in 1990, peaking in the UK Singles Chart at number three on 25 November 1990. It was the 32nd best-selling single of 1990 in the UK. In the United States, it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on 20 July 1991.

Due to the amount of air time that “Unbelievable” has received since its release, it may be responsible for the most profanity ever heard over radio. The constant background vocal during the chorus saying “What the fuck was that?,” which even appears in the lyrics in the CD booklet, was never edited. This is possibly due to the fact that the background vocal appears incoherently, and most people dismiss it as undecipherable lyrics.

    The funniest thing about this song, for me, is how when it first came out, women thought it was about a guy telling his GF (or BF I guess) how she was SOOOOO wonderful, she was unbelievable (as in good), then watching their faces as you pointed out the lyrics and let them know the guy was calling his GF a two-faced, double standard holding, LIAR! So much so, she was LITERALLY unbelievable!

    Iconic, but that's not the same as good.

    I never knew this had profanities until the other day since you can barely make them out.

    Holds the record for the most profanities ever broadcast in one song! Mind you, you can barely make them out.

    My favorite thing about this song is it's NOT about how unbelievably GOOD the person is, but rather how ridiculous they are--unbelievably so. I'm sure I'm not the only one who started liking the song back in the early 90s thinking it was about how great someone was. LOL!
