>The same exact whooping, melodic sequence has been showing up in a surprisingly high number of recent pop songs. The phenomenon was first noticed by musician and product manager Patrick Metzger. He detailed the trend, dubbing it “The Millennial Whoop,” in a post on his blog, The Patterning. Here’s how Metzger described it:

>It’s a sequence of notes that alternates between the fifth and third notes of a major scale, typically starting on the fifth. The rhythm is usually straight 8th-notes, but it may start on the downbeat or on the upbeat in different songs. A singer usually belts these notes with an “Oh” phoneme, often in a “Wa-oh-wa-oh” pattern. And it is in so many pop songs it’s criminal.

>Here are some more songs with the whoop (and the time in each song when it appears) that Metzger and commenters on his blog identified:

Katy Perry — “California Gurls” (1:05)
Fall Out Boy — “She’s My Winona” (0:14)
Stonefox — “All I Want” (2:02)
Twenty One Pilots — “Ride” (0:48)
Andy Grammer — “Forever” (3:15)
Fifth Harmony — “Anything is Possible” (0:20)
CHVRCHES — “The Mother We Share” (0:32)
Chris Brown — “Turn Up the Music” (1:30)
Outasight — “Tonight Is the Night” (0:52)
The Head and the Heart — “Down in the Valley” (1:48)
Alejandro Sanz — “Looking for Paradise (featuring Alicia Keys)” (0:14)
Kings of Leon — “Use Somebody” (1:28)
BOY — “Little Numbers” (1:02)

that first link is a terrible terrible song


I thought it was pretty alright tbh


they used it on a samsung commercial that got heavy play in my area. it was painful.


since i've made these posts literally every song in the charts is doing it. I'd bet my life right now that there is a song in the top three that does it


yeah, i just visited my mom, who listens to the top 10 channel a lot, pretty much every song had this, it sucks

Apologies for the ban message, a mod did that for disclosed reasons and accidentally left the ban message ticked. Welcome back.


Not a problem, I was over zealous in my threads, I'll keep it simple, promise


So anyway, back on point, I'm just going to use this thread for my exploration as I ran out of paper and maybe Hampus and others will join in.

I might post lots of shitty links and stuff but it all makes sense in the long run, honest 'guv.



As its probably obvious by now I have a hardon for all things South of the border, down Mexico way. Primarily the Caribbean, then Central America, then South until its all penguin field recordings. I hope others will do the same, maybe tastes will cross.

>The Caribbean music area includes all the islands of the Caribbean, including Cuba, Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Anguilla, Martinique, Dominica, Grenada, Guadeloupe and Trinidad and Tobago. In addition, the mainland South American countries of Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana are generally grouped with the Caribbean countries, as is the non-Caribbean island nation of the Bahamas. The island of Bermuda is not Caribbean, and its folk music is little studied; for convenience, it is included herein though it may or may not be typical of the Caribbean music area.

revenge of the cabbages becomes the first track to hit 2000 plays

these are the tracks that people have saved to their devices the most

what is it about these, especially the top 2, that cause them to be saved so much?


Far too many of these were mine.


Nice, any idea who is saving these? Have you been spreading the word about your tracks on Spotify?


I have no idea.

>mfw I play a deceptive cadence
>then lead it into another incomplete phrase which ends the same way
>all in minor
What are some of your favorite tricks in theory?
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Triplets to lead into a tempo change.


mmmyes non-perfect cadences, minor scales and incomplete sounding phrases are tight.
This is a standard thing I do, I'm not even aware of doing it most of the time.
I'm just going to go ahead and use this, I've heard this before in music but never pin-pointed it.


I feel so lost reading this.... like tryna figuring out rocket science.


Check out musictheory.net or read these:

Music theory: TL;DR version:

Throw any questions you have about theory at us, either mzrt, I or someone else will probably be able to answer them for you.


Yeah I mean... I like red fire trucks


Does anyone else here find themselves to stick to music for no clear, apparent reason? I've caught myself listening to music from my teens lately and when I contemplate the reason why, I can't think of anything but nostalgia. All this music should be completely anti and out of line with my current taste and personality, but somehow it isn't after. I still enjoy it for reasons beyond nostalgia and just bopping my head to it. Anyone else here who knows this feeling?


Holy shit are you a fucking musical elitist hipster or something


yeah I know this feeling but it's usually limited to just a few songs and not full albums for some reason


I just like to think about music
Same actually, there's only few full albums which I like all the way through


Oh boy, beef ITT, my favorite food.

Anyway, I have this too, no shame in it. I'll play that Sum 41 track on repeat all day, along with a bunch of other pop punk, alt rock and anything not too edgy or try hard from my teen years. Leaving music behind for the sake of maturity alone is dumb anyway imo.

If people had 4 hand, would it change music somehow?

if people had 4 hands, baroque music would be considered easy


It's more a point about coordination than musical complexity
