Foot-loose and Fascination Free

This week’s Midweek mutating earworm is quick and simple.

When ‘Fascination’ from Alphabeat came along in 2007 all I kept hearing was an 80s classic that would always get played at discos.

Do-do-doooo dad-dah-dah-da

Purely tempo 180bpm and drum pattern from the intro / break is all it took to build an unbreakable earworm link to Footloose by Kenny Loggins

Dum-dum-dummm da-dah-dah-dah

And then the next step on the journey is the same beat but slightly less high energy. The Cure’s “Close to me” taking almost the same drum beats but going off in a completely different direction.

Dum-dum-dum da-da-da-da-dah-da

And that’s it! Short and sweet, journey complete. 

You know what comes next…? tomorrow!

Donovan.
