Crazy Frog - Axel F

Anyone heard this wild song?

Apparently it hit #1 in the UK for ringtones..
Quote:
The UK went hopping mad for Crazy Frog Axel F when it was released as a single there two weeks ago, pushing it to the No.1 spot ahead of Coldplay's Speed of Sound.
I've heard it on XM Radio, but not on local broadcasted radio yet..
Has it hit the airwaves near you yet?

Makes a great full length song as well as a video:

Mirrors:

http://alfons.kobranet.cz/crazy.frog.swf

http://www.jok.ru/crazy-frog.swf


And of course, if you don't remember; the original sound of The Most Annoying Thing In The World was a simple insanity test:
http://www.frenzy.com/~jester/racecar.html

And for those of you who don't like this song, or The Most Annoying Thing In The World I bring you this:
It's similar to the hit the penguin game of a couple years back:
http://www.boreme.com/boreme/media-m...crazy-frog.swf


And then there is some press about the song/video:

Re: Crazy Frog - Axel F

Thanks for the links; I was wondering what that crazy frog thing was after I saw it mentioned in The Register; it hasn't been on broadcast radio around here, well, at least not that I've heard, but I can't say I listen all that often.

Re: Crazy Frog - Axel F

consider yourself lucky.
i was in the cd shop the other day buying a decent album (u2 ) and a bunch of 10 year old kids went and made their parent buy the crazy frog album.
I think i found out who controls the charts lol.
Anyway it was number 1 for a week (maybe 2) ....
trust me , stick to real music liek the original Axel F (which rocks btw)

Re: Crazy Frog - Axel F

"biddy biddy"

*shivers* I dare a FIRST DJ to even try to play Crazy Frog. We'll see how long it takes until the angry mob overwhelms him.

Joking aside, it's really just a Beverly Hills Cop trancy-pop remix with that annoying frog's voice laid over it, nothing more. As a result of Crazy Frog, I can't listen to that theme without waiting for the "bing bing." Darn you Crazy Frog!

Oh, if only I had pursued that ASCAP license harder for The Capital Clash...

(Relax, I'm not playing it. It annoys the bajeebers out of me too.)

Re: Crazy Frog - Axel F

the ringtones were around for ages (a year?) before the "song"
the guy who created it hates it and he started it just to try and make a scooter/moped sound.

Re: Crazy Frog - Axel F

Call me sick but I loved it. The guys at work were all asking for the links. The best part is playing the game after watching video 6 times. Not enough humor around lately.

Re: Crazy Frog - Axel F

Psh, I heard this song on the radio when I was in NJ with Corey. I remember him saying "this is number one song in the uk" I go "Yah know, I actually kinda like it..." He goes "yeah, me too."
So that would be two people who like it.
And appearantly it is on some radiowaves in NJ. Stupid NJ. HAHA.

Re: Crazy Frog - Axel F

Crazy Frog also does a song called Wonderland which I think should be played at the Canadian Mini-Comp @ Wonderland..

What do you think?

It's actually got a sample of the same song that was used not only in the Rave scene in the movie Blade, but also during kickoff one year during introduction video of sponsors/suppliers if I remember correctly..

Besides that, the rest of the CD sounds pretty cool. I was able to sample it and it's great.. The sound that is "The Annoying Thing" in the Crazy Frog vid is in all the tracks.

It can kind of get a bit annoying after a while having the same sound on all the tracks, but like I always say.. if you don't like it, don't listen to it.

That said.. I listened to it straight through for more than an hour today.
