Are you shufflin'? Topping the Billboard this summer at #1 Top 100 is LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem. If you haven't heard of it yet, you are probably confined somewhere secluded and have not been out in the social world. LMFAO is a uncle/nephew electro-hop duo from California. Most of their songs entails "party rocking", which is a combination "partying" and "rocking", according to LMFAO. Party Rock Anthem became an international hit overseas. And now, it has taken over America. The lyrics are fairly simple. You're going to "party 'til you lose your mind; everybody just have a good time". And shufflin' is the dance for the song. "Shufflin" is essentially the a modified version of the "Melbourne Shuffle", a popular Australian dance move back the in the '90s. So what made this song number 1? If it can't possibly be the lyrics, then it must be the catchy soon-to-be-stuck-in-your-head beat. If not, maybe the music video is the seller. The MV is essentially LMFAO waking up to a world of shufflin' zombies, who gets obsessed with the song and shuffles constantly. Whatever the case maybe, I have a feeling that this is going to be the summer song of 2011.
