Harlem Shake - Single
Open iTunes to preview, buy and download music.
Besides being at the forefront of the electro-trap movement — a genre that blends crunk hip-hop beats and EDM tempos — this Baauer cut is the soundtrack to an Internet meme explosion, one where individuals uploaded amateur videos of themselves dancing the "Harlem Shake." Jump on your favorite video sharing site and watch football teams, firemen, college kids dressed as Power Rangers, and even SeaWorld animals shaking their everything to this infectious, chirpy, bass-heavy monster. With thousands of videos to choose from, and views counting into the tens of millions, the cut made history when it topped the charts after Billboard changed their formula and added YouTube-streaming data to the mix of sales and radio plays.
Death by Terminal Flatulence Sounds Better
This is an insult to music and the industry that creates it, simple as. Half of the Beatles and Queen are rolling in their graves right now...
It's alright enough to dance to after a few, hence the viral spread of another brand new barking-mad dance craze but right now I'm going to judge this on the track alone, by saying: How strange is this? It just makes me question who is the force behind the tune, it's repetition and most of all those extremely weird sounds, and how it's trying to already become this year's very own Gangnam Style. This is single-handedly one of the most bizarre things this century has seen so far however, for the fact you may still be able to dance to it like a moron, I predict it'll only be here for a while in coming, so love it or hate it, you'd better get used to it...
Great tune to it
