Great Moments in Music 004 - "What Does the Fox Say?"

  1. Amy and I first heard this song on the television show, Dancing with the Stars (last week). The dancers used this tune for their group dance routine. I practically peed my pants when I heard the tune! The lyrics, if you can call it "lyrics", took me by surprise. We had a great time watching the dance routine, which was pretty cool by itself (Derek is a talented choreographer), and thoroughly enjoyed hearing the song.

    This tune has BALLS! It's why I'm labeling it "Great Moments in Music". As they were writing the lyrics, I can almost imagine the writers ask themselves, "What would the fox say?" "Oh heck, let's write, 'Ding, ding, ding, da-ding. . . ' " I honestly don't know if the intent of the song is to be silly. It doesn't matter. It satisfies the Great Silliness which, in my book, is really OK! It's a cool tune. I hope that it satisfies the silliness within you as you watch and listen to, "What does the Fox Say?" (Apparently, this is the officially music video.) Enjoy!

    My SIL turned me on to this song a few weeks ago, and I've actually gotten a little mileage on FB with the quip "What does the fox say?" Then when they did the song on DWTS, I went and got my hubby out of the other room to watch the dance and hear the music, whose lyrics are nonsensical but catchy in a weird way. LOL.

    It's fun, it'll last about as long as the Macarena, and it'll never quite be forgotten. Thanks for the video!

    Yea. . . I know that this tune is most probably a passing fad, like the Macarena. Still, the Macarena is a fun dance as this is a fun and silly tune!

    Amy and I first saw/heard this tune on DWTS. Didn't realize that it was some kind of internet success.

    Glad you liked the video!

    Ive found that anytime a tune hits DWTS, or accompanies the Today show or whatever...it's very, very over.
