SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Filly – “Hung Like a Donkey”
With Martin Garrix “Animal” and Ylvis “What Does the Fox Say,” there is obviously an animal trend on the rise. Since these things always happen in threes, UK pop tart Filly (the girl behind “Drip Drop” a few years back) might just have a big viral hit with this ode to well-endowed men. A slight digression here to say that this kind of topic matter is better handled in a woman’s voice and comes off a lot more funny, rather than the desperate-sounding (and borderline racist) like the “Black From the Waist Down” by Albert Kick and Jason Rene track which has been floating around for a few months. Back to “Donkey,” Filly is having fun in her tarty tone rapping and singing about well, you know. It’s kinda obvious the remixes were meant to be satires of three current dance music trends – big room hard electro, stadium house, and retro two-step. Yes, they are cheesy takes of Showtek, Zedd, and the like- but with a novelty record it fits perfectly. The video complete with twerking and animal shots should be going viral about any minute now.
