If you have a smartphone, laptop, or tablet, you’ll see Wednesday dance.
Tim Burton’s new Netflix series starring Jenna Ortega has a scene where the protagonist dances furiously to The Cramps’ “Goo Goo Muck.”Like any Netflix scene that includes a song, it Go viral on TikTok. but unlike what we saw earlier this year strange things vs Kate Bush’s “Run Up That Hill” – Radio-Made, the 37-Year-Old Song Go viral on TikTokThen Be the hit of the new generationthis time, the kids managed to make the wrong old song famous again.
soon Wednesday premiere, Videos of people reenacting dances start appearing (Ortega’s own choreography). But instead of setting the dance to The Cramps song used in the show, TikTokers set it to a bombastic dance remix of the 2011 Lady Gaga song “Bloody Mary.” There could be several reasons for switching song choices: maybe there is no existing The Cramps song on TikTok, or the lyrics of “Bloody Mary” are particularly suitable for Ortega’s choreography (I will dance, dance, dance / use my hands, Hands, hands / On my head, on my head, on my head / As Jesus said).
Either way, the song is so intrinsically connected to the series that it’s sometimes tagged “Wednesday Dance Party” under TikTok audio, and Lady Gaga herself recreates dance set from her own songs, effectively leaping the musical shark.hell, a piece Wednesday Now, whenever you queue up for “Bloody Mary” on Spotify, the dance will play. “No one is talking about cramps. Shame on you!!” Julia Alexander trweAlexander at Parrot Analytics tweets.
TikTok’s dance and audio virality isn’t a new concept, but TikTok’s effective control over what’s on the air is something we’ve only seen in the past year or so. And now, 11 years after it was released on Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” album, “Bloody Mary” has its first chance at the radio rotation, as Gaga’s team released it as a single.
DJ White Shadow who made this song thanks TikTok for the remix, write on twitter“Thanks to the fans. Thanks to @ladygaga for not sounding arrogant but I’m so proud of what we make to last…”
“Bloody Mary” currently sits at No. 5 on Spotify’s “Born This Way” album, behind only the most radio-played singles of 2011 and 2012. This is the weirdest shit ever. TikTok connects the wrong song to Netflix’s dance scene and breathes new life into it more than a decade later. We live in strange times, kids. Get up, little monster. Sorry for the cramps.
