Owen Pallett 2014

One of the things Owen Pallett mentioned when we spoke with him about his great new In Conflict is that he doesn’t want to make a habit of breaking down the music theory behind pop hits as he did for Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” and Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” But it seems he couldn’t resist Buzzfeed’s invitation to take a crack at some more songs. In bite-sized bursts of intellect, Pallett offered his best attempt at dissecting Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “Drunk In Love,” Haim’s “If I Could Change Your Mind,” Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea’s “Problem,” Usher’s “Good Kisser,” and DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” plus Pallett’s own “The Riverbed.” Read the results at Buzzfeed.

  1. Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “Drunk In Love,” Haim’s “If I Could Change Your Mind,” Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea’s “Problem,” Usher’s “Good Kisser,” and DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What”

    all of those songs…yuck.

  2. Now can he explain why everyone seemed to worship “Call Me Maybe” and what separates it from the crap put out by the band of it’s producer and co-writer, Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench?
