Fafu - Serial Theme Notorious B.I.G. Remix

6/17/2015 Martha Geyer 0 Comments

PSA: If you haven't listened to the NPR podcast, "Serial," then you are a cultural hoodlum. It is a beacon for the future of investigatory journalism* and human interest pieces. Plus its got all the makings of Nicholas Sparks novel -murder, teen romance, feuding families, lies, deceit,  but mostly just murder. That and it's free, so why the hell NOT? Your inner Agatha Christie will thank you.

More importantly to you audiophiles, Serial has a damn infectious theme song. Which is why, Fafu, you are a genius. This remix is simple really- a layering of Biggie's "Somebody Gotta Die" (subtle, Mr. Smalls) over a continuous loop of Serial's tinkling piano chords. Injected intermittently throughout are excerpts from the podcast, resulting in a pretty ominous mash-up. HOWEVER, the blend of songs is just too perfect. It may top "Office Muzik" - you know, the Lil' Wayne/The Office theme song mashup of '08. What is it about thugs and nerd instruments (i.e. pianos, accordions, kazoos)?? If it's wrong, I don't wanna be right.

*s/o Zoolander. Please tell me there are still others out there who can do dry run of the entire movie from memory.
