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.
I haven't lost so many IQ points in such a short time period since the first (which was also the last) time I watched Jersey Shore. >.<
I am a DJ, and will never play this stupidness!!
DO The Harlem Shake
I'm IN ❤ with this song ever since my brother danced to it when I was feeling sad to make me cheer up! And guess what? It worked!
Anyway I DO NOT get why ppl don't like it! It is a catchy song and the meaning is to have fun! Get up and dance! It doesn't need to have lyrics to make it "awesome"! And 4 some of you, it's #1 cause ppl like it! They love to dance to it & sing to it! I know some ppl won't agree with me and I get it, it's your opinion. But other ppl have THEIR opinions, too. Like someone said, you either hate it or love it.
