In case you’ve lived under a rock for the past couple of weeks, there is a new way to remix songs that has taken to the internet by storm (expecting a pun to go there, wasn’t you?). This “advance” form of remixing has the sounds of goats in parts where there is “oh-ing” or screaming in the song. The most famous “goat version” is of everyone favorite serial dater Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble”.
Don’t believe me? Well check out this little ditty:
Yeah, that is what we are talking about. Taking good songs and turning them into nothing more than just extremely awkward and somewhat disturbing remixes. Other songs that visited the farm are “Living on A Prayer” by Bon Jovi (HOW DARE THEY RUIN A CLASSIC!?!), “Party in the USA” by Miley Cyrus (That one felt right), and “Ni**as in Paris” by Jay-Z feat. Kayne (We will let you ponder that one).
While the origin of this phenomenon isn’t very clear (and that we don’t give a flying squirrel who made it), we at The Pop Project do not approve of this! We find the “goat remixes” to be just terrible. If we wanted to listen to crap, we would just turn on some Nickelback because that is all “goat remixes” are-crap. I know what you are thinking, “goat remixes” are made not to be taken seriously but when you publish online, it will be taken seriously. So people of the internet, PLEASE make all of this stop for the sake of our ears and for the sake of our goats!
