Why are bucks fizz called the fizz


Bucks Fizz is an English pop group, best known for its Eurovision Song Contest-winning "Making Your Mind Up" in 1981. The group was formed in 1981 and named after a popular alcoholic cocktail[1]. The group's name originates from the fact that many of their songs featured a backdrop of fizzing bubbles, which they added to the recordings to create a unique sound[1].

The fizzing sound was symbolic of the high energy and fun of their music, thus the name Bucks Fizz was chosen to represent their style[1]. The members of Bucks Fizz released several singles and albums in the 1980s[1]. After the release of their hit single, "The Land of Make Believe", and their album "Writing on the Wall", the group disbanded in 1985[2].

However, the song has since been hailed as a 1980s classic and is regarded as the group's best work by some critics[1].
