Song of the Day #2,149: ‘Turn Down For What’ – DJ Snake & Lil Jon

turn_down_snake_jonAs I suspected, Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’ is sitting high on the charts, at #2. In the third and fourth spots are two other songs I’ve already featured on the blog, John Legend’s ‘All Of Me’ and Pharell’s juggernaut ‘Happy.’

The next new entry is an oddity by DJ Snake & Lil Jon called ‘Turn Down For What.’ The track contains twelve words repeated ad nauseum over an assaulting EDM beat — just like the songs my parents grew up with.

This is one of those songs that likely owes its spot on the charts to repeated YouTube plays of its video, which is rather inspired.

The video reminds me of a Key & Peele skit about dubstep in which “the drop” causes increasingly violent reactions.

[Intro]
Fire up that loud, another round of shots

[Hook 10x]
Turn down for what?

[Bridge 8x]
Fire up that loud, another round of shots

[Hook 5x]
Turn down for what?

    I’m pretty sure it’s the lyrics that make this song a hit.😄 Me no likey, but, then again, I’m an old guy.
