Pomplamoose – “Do Not Push: A Gotye Call Me Maybe Mashup”

Pomplamoose Pomplamoose   Do Not Push: A Gotye Call Me Maybe Mashup

“Ohhhhhhhh shit.” Said everyone upon reading the subject line of this post. Yes, it’s finally happened. Don’t act surprised. Don’t get upset. The pairing of this year’s two most popular songs was bound to occur eventually, and indie music duo Pomplamoose are the ones who finally pulled the trigger.

“For the chorus, we used the famous chord hits of ‘Call Me Maybe’ but superimposed the melody and lyrics from Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know.’ For the verses, we used Gotye’s chords and the ‘Call Me Maybe’ lyrics.”

Repetitive playing of this mashup will likely prompt the government to permanently close the Internet. Be sure to grab a download of it before that happens.

    i guess. on another note, would you still post this stuff if the site generated real mainstream traffic? it just seems like a small community thing to me… its hard to take too seriously, but thats the point i guess?

    I suppose it would depend on the specific item, but something like this serves a two-fold purpose. It’s topical, which is why I chose to cover it, and it’s also just simple entertainment. Sometimes it’s nice to do a lighthearted a piece like this. Feedback is good though, always appreciate the thoughts.

  • wewo

    Does no one see the correlation of the video and Richard Matheson’s “The Box”?

    @Wewo, no I didn’t make that connection but then again I’m not very familiar with “The Box.” Thanks for pointing it out though.

    ooh I get it. If I’m a regular visitor to this site, I couldn’t possibly be interested in frivolous pop music, right? These songs are fun and the mash up is to. Thanks for the post. Entertaining stuff. No music snobbery here.
