If today's song doesn't at least make you nod your head to the beat or have a little dance break in your office chair (library chair if you're at uni), well... well you probably just have different musical tastes and don't like today's choice. No judgement!
Today's choice is "Can't Remember To Forget You" a song Shakira posted on her Youtube less than 24 hours ago, and has already had over 3 million views. Whoa! Here's a breakdown of what will happen as you listen (your thoughts are in quotation marks):
Step 1: Your desire to be drinking out of a coconut will increase at least tri-fold in the first few moments of the song, as the sweet Caribbean sound of a steel pan kisses your ears.
Step 2: Shakira starts singing. You understand about one word in seven, but it doesn't matter because you're loving it, and your head is already going.
Step 3: Whoa, syncopated rock now! "How do they make rock and steel drums sound like that together?! Doesn't matter, I'll take it!"
Step 4: "Why is Rihanna singing something about trains now? Ah well, it's catchy."
Step 5: Just straight up song appreciation here!
Step 6: "O_o That rock guitar! OH yes!"
Step 7: You're already "singing" along, and currently fighting the urge to get up and dance regardless of where you are.
Step 8: You realise that the song is done, and you have no clue what it's about besides the line "I can't remember to forget you (and that's kind of cheating)," so hit 'Replay' vowing to listen this time, then start all over again at Step 1.
...or maybe that was just me. Let us know if those steps were accurate, or if yours were a little different!
Until next Tunesday...
