I’m a sucker for layered music. Whether it’s metal, dance, world, or whatever doesn’t matter – it’s simply the layered aspect of the music that I enjoy. It’s one of the reasons why I enjoy so much dance, trance, and house music.
, the Swedish House Mafia have created a track that is the archetype of everything dance and house music. I’ll freely admit that it may not be the “best” music ever, but it really does stand as a self-contained archetype. And it’s a nice, pounding, fun song to boot.
The video is actually worth a mention as well – if you thought the TV spot was pretty spiffy looking, this is quite a bit better. It’s a bit of a visual treat.
The product placement with Absolut is a bit annoying in the video, but honestly, I’m just trying to enjoy this song now. Because I’m predicting we’re going to keep hearing this song whenever a movie or TV show wants to signal “dance music” for the next decade or so, and I want to like this song before overuse makes me sick of it.
