By watching that video because it’s so ridiculously cute.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Baby Shark > Crazy Frog, and I’m glad I’m a parent now and wasn’t then.

i can make my five-month-old daughter roar with delight just by singing the opening 'bayyyyy-beeeee'

there aren't many things that can evoke that reaction just from one word and two notes - this song has some ocean-deep magickal power imo

Berghain jumps the (baby) shark.

I'm not gonna nominate it, but if someone else does I'm definitely voting for it.

It's a deal, I will nominate it but I won't vote for it.

I'm more fond of the Bounce Patrol version which my 4-year watches 2x every day. I swear it's like Stockholm Syndrome with these videos.

frogbs, Friday, 30 November 2018 14:41 (one year ago) link

actually the most maddening/incredible version was this one which the creators have now aggressively scrubbed off YouTube for some unknown reason

xp Nyan Cat placed #24 in 2011. I think it was my number one! #neverforget

lbi's life of limitless european glamour (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 30 November 2018 14:43 (one year ago) link

I'm fairly certain Nyan Cat was my number one too. But that has a quality above and beyond Baby Shark. I definitely went through periods where I would listen to it for hours on end. I went a bit mad, perhaps, but it will always remain special to me.

emil.y, Friday, 30 November 2018 14:56 (one year ago) link

Completely agree with your closing statement, and I've listened to it for hours too. It truly is a song that does not (have to) end.

lbi's life of limitless european glamour (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 30 November 2018 15:01 (one year ago) link

frogbs linked version is way creepy

lbi's life of limitless european glamour (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 30 November 2018 15:02 (one year ago) link

never made the "Nyan Cat" connection but yeah both these songs have this sort of synthesized catchiness to them, as if they were developed in a lab. they're like the Fentanyl to the Percocet of "Wheels on the Bus"

frogbs, Friday, 30 November 2018 15:04 (one year ago) link

Sounds like it's time for this beauty

That thing linked by frogbs is hardcore cursed, the gentle acoustic guitar sound in the background is possibly the wrongest thing ever recorded.

Wait did you people watch the video I was talking about? I love it so much and I love this dumb song too.

baby shark is getting around 2M hits/day so should be 2B around Sunday. By next week it will be crack the 15 most watched youtube videos ever.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 30 November 2018 16:44 (one year ago) link

I work with foreign kids and I've had to sing baby shark, but more often it's this monstrous variation:

I did not know about this song until that video. Now... I only know that song song song

rb (soda), Friday, 30 November 2018 16:54 (one year ago) link

One thing I hope that grown up music can learn from the success of baby shark is the importance of having an extra verse to tell you it's the end of the song.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 30 November 2018 16:55 (one year ago) link

my 2 yr old gal likes this one as much as she likes the original

My four year old avoided this until about a month ago when he picked it up at preschool. He watched it a bunch over a week and kind of forgot about it, though he does randomly start singing two-word phrases to the tune of it.

joygoat, Friday, 30 November 2018 18:56 (one year ago) link

The odd thing, at least in the UK, is how it's been such a slow burn. The single made the top forty in August but only just, then fell out, and it's now back in the top forty again; the song itself came out four years ago.

I don't like it as much as Gangam Style. The melody sounds sad. It's less upbeat than I was expecting for a Korea novelty song about a baby shark. It makes me feel unhappy and I don't like that.

Seriously, I'm always thrown for a loop when a song just stops without the singer giving me a heads up. Even just a quick 'the end' helps so much.

all lite up and very romatic (Old Lunch), Friday, 30 November 2018 20:11 (one year ago) link

NB this is based on a camp song/game (with the shark hand motions) that has been around for like…at least 20 years probably, I d k if I'm pointing out the obvious or not

That Alexa video is great... The song itself is not my kind of jam, tho; I have two kids but never encountered it before this thread (thankfully).

I just asked my wife, “Have you seen the video of a girl asking Alexa to play this Baby Shark song?” — and suddenly the swag-bag Echo Dot on the counter in front of me (we got it for free) lights up and says, “Now playing ‘Baby Shark,’ on Amazon Music...”

this song has been ducksussed somewhere

rip van wanko, Monday, 3 December 2018 15:14 (one year ago) link

Haha — I found that Duck Song around 5 years ago, trolling YT for kids stuff when my son was a tot. Spent a hot day playing it over & over. (There’s a “sequel” song/video that’s pretty good, IIRC)

underqualified backing vocalist (morrisp), Monday, 3 December 2018 15:43 (one year ago) link

(I don’t think my son cared about the Duck Song at all, but I thought it was clever.)

underqualified backing vocalist (morrisp), Monday, 3 December 2018 15:44 (one year ago) link

yeah i remember first seeing the duck song back when the video was out in 09. i don't think it's seeing any kind of special resurgence...? although it has been pretty consistently viewed on youtube for the past many years

also a cute song

dyl, Monday, 3 December 2018 18:25 (one year ago) link

debuted at #32 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week

I was conflicted on voting for this song for the EOY ILM poll... on one hand it’s not up to my music standards but on the other hand I’d be very happy to see it represented on the tracks poll as it was probably the song I heard the most this year thanks to my extended family and their babies.

Our dj played a remix of it a few weekends ago as a joke in our club and the crowd went crazy, I have a video of it but I’m too ashamed to ever share it online.

my 4yo started doing the "Alexa play Baby Shark" thing last week. we don't have Alexa but we do have a Bluetooth speaker that must look like the one that's Alexa-enabled at his day care. so this version of Alexa makes him clean up his toys and finish his dinner before it can play any music >:)

frogbs, Tuesday, 8 January 2019 21:53 (eleven months ago) link

i wonder if local lyrical variation to this song as sung at summer camps and such will decrease now that there's an 'official' hit recording. r.i.p. to lines like 'shark attack' etc

she's now 13 months old and still obsessed with baby shark - no matter the scale of emotional meltdown she might be having, just the little 'pinkfong' ident sound at the start of the video will quiet her immediately - it's fucking witchcraft tbh

it's also my most-played spotify song by a considerable distance

when I dropped my daughter off at day care the teacher pulled out a tablet and put this on and immediately all the kids stopped what they were doing, rushed to her and started jumping up and down. and yeah it was that little "pinkfong" tag that they immediately recognized. its nuts. but also quite useful

I've never watched this video as I assume it's some kind of Halloween III trigger but I listened to a podcast history about it and now I am informed.

The "Kleiner Hai” version that was a small hit in Germany in 2008 is quite deranged in its way.

I dunno, at least you don't have to hear the same song over and over again (unless a specific one is requested in which case trying to scrub through three different 20 min episodes to find 'the monster one' is definitely worse).
