Atomium Escalator: Travelling through hyperspace in the Belgian tourist attraction
I like to listen to the radio a lot while I work (tuned into Radio One) and have found myself wondering lately about the exact point pop music got so horny. And I'm not talking about the over sexualisation of the artists and the songs they produce but the increasing use of Adam West-era Batman sound effects in their backing tracks.
It's a fad that fades in from pop's recent sax addiction and to my ears gathered momentum somewhere around Jason Derulo's 'Talk Dirty to Me', peaked with Cheryl Cole's crazy 'Crazy Stupid Love', and settled down with Taylor Swift's 'Shake it Off'.
However it seems it was one fella with some hella good hair who anticipated the trend and started things off, taking horns to a whole new level over 40 years ago.
If Swifty had been around in the '70s, or likewise if Elvis had been around today, it's not hard to imagine The King covering the infectious guilty pleasure 'Patch it up' style. Though maybe not the rap.
P.S. If you play Taylor and Elvis at the same time, then mute the Elvis video, they kinda sorta synch up in places.
