Song of the Day #1,261: ‘Super Anthem’ – Nicki Minaj & LMFAO (mash-up)

Next week I will start counting down my top ten songs of 2011, focusing not necessarily on hot singles or songs that captured the zeitgeist this year but simply the songs that affected me the most for one reason or another.

First, though, I will spend a week on several odds and ends that didn’t make the countdown but made my musical year brighter each in their own way.

Kicking things off is my recognition of two terrific songs that would be in my top ten if their inclusion wouldn’t break my one cardinal rule for this blog — no repeats.

Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ and LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ were both featured during my series on summer singles. At the time, both were brand-new to me but they quickly became favorites. As ubiquitous as they’ve become, I’m still not tired of either one.

Today’s SOTD is a very effective mash-up of the two songs, with the added bonus of Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ video for your visual enjoyment.

    Comments by consensus today, as I played the song around the kitchen table during cocktails:
    Peg: “I didn’t like the music at all. It’s not my cup of tea.”

    Dana: “I am drawn to Nicki’s rap style, but have no use for LMFAO or their song, so the inclusion of their song in this mash-up detracts rather than adds.”

    Maddie: “These songs sound even worse together. I can’t believe Clay likes this.”

    Daniel: I love both songs, but together this is a train wreck.”

    Amy: “You can look at the boobs, I’ve got stuff I can look at too. He has a nice smile (when I look up from the abs)”

    Molly: “Arf!”

    Doug: “What is there to like about this?… I’ve failed as a father.”

    To be clear… I’m not suggesting I enjoy this mash-up as a standalone song (though it is well-done). This is just a way to feature both of these songs without posting a repeat.

    And I believe Molly offered the most valuable commentary. 🙂
