This isn’t related to android apps or live wallpaper, but I just wanted to do a public service. A couple of days ago, my brother called me up wondering what the name/artist of a particular rap song was. When he described it as being the one that goes dun dun dun dun, I immediately knew what he was talking about, but couldn’t remember the name/artist either.
Shazam didn’t work when I hummed the distinctive part of the song (didn’t really expect it to), and so I turned to google. I was pretty sure the song was from before 2003, because I remember being psyched when they played it in bars during college. I tried searches like “song that goes dun dun dun dun”, “rap song chromatic bass”, and “rap song chromatic baritone”, but nothing worked. Eventually I gave up and my brother found out what the song was through a friend of his.
It turns out that the song is “Simon Says” by the incredible lyricist Pharoahe Monch. I just wanted to post this in the hopes that if you had the song stuck in your head and couldn’t remember what it is, a search for “song that goes dun dun dun dun”, “rap song chromatic bass”, or “rap song chromatic baritone” would result in this post, and your mystery would be solved. You’re welcome.
