Song Frenzy

My girlfriend thinks I'm insane. But I can't get over this song. I don't think I've ever listened to anything so many times in 48 hours. Twice on the way to school today. Twice on the way home. Once on the way to dinner. Once back. And when I post it here, it's gonna have to be played to make sure it works properly.

I don't know why I like it. It's the official song of World Cup 2010 (fuuuuuuck yeah), so maybe that's it. Football and global camaraderie kinda give me chills anyway.

It's also that classic chord progression - used by many songs - but it stands out here. The lyrics are bombastic and cheesy, and it has that subtle undertone of Disney-fied (Rachael said it sounded like the Lion King soundtrack) "world" music. Like, just exotic enough to be cool, but totally safe for housewives. Like Slumdog Millionaire.

Regardless, I can't get it out of my head, and it was giving me major, major chills on my way to school today.

By the way, this is the World Cup remix, the original can be heard here.

You ARE a little crazy, but that song does have a spark.

You've stuck this in my head for the next week or so.
