You won't be able to escape this in the clubs this summer. Unless you just stay away, which is what I recommend.

With apologies to abc123xyzinfinity, of course. If I hadn't been 90% through this when I saw his track, I might not have finished it.

Wow your production skills amaze me uncleozzy. This is disgustingly well done, I kinda get the feeling you've done songs like this before and haven't told any of us. This needs to be on DDR.

I don't see this most excellent version with the other tagged covers. Please to add?

My god, this is amazing. It's as though this song were written to be done this way.

You're like the Zelig of music.
This is so awful it's perfect. My own personal hell of music is music that sounds like galloping.
Well done.

Ha, glad you guys dug this. Really, I wanted to test an idea I had for an autotune plugin stack. Logic's built-in pitch correction plugin is not particularly well-suited to this application, so I thought I'd stick some effects ahead of it to make it angry. I really like the result... well, at least as much as you can like a thing like that. (That kick drum is really lame, though; there's an 808 hiding under there, but it's not hitting at all. Oh well.)

No need to apologize, I must bow before the autotune!!! And while you might not like it, your kick makes me jealous. (what's an 808?)

808, man! There's a sampled 808 kick layered underneath the clicky one for some thump, but I cocked up the mix on this track pretty badly. The first mix was really boomy (the wide, grindy bass was eating up all the low end), so I tweaked that and multiband compressed it to even things out, but never listened again on a system with a subwoofer (or with fresh ears). The result is that there's not enough tight bass in the kick to hit you in the chest like it should. If I weren't just doing this for the lulz, I'd have to remix it. I might need to add a sub to my monitoring situation.
