Every time I listen to Chromeo Iâ€™m reminded of those old school smooth soul R&B/Funk bands. You know, like the Barry Whites, Fatback Band, Major Harris, the Persuaders. All the guys whose sole purpose as artist was to sing about the many complexities, dimensions and details of macking it to girls on a daily basis. I was always fascinated by those steamy spoken interludes Barry White had in his songs, I mean you have to be deep in the seduction game to pull that off and not come across like a master cheese-ball.Â Call Me Up is about making the said girl comfortable with some casual phone conversation and flirtatious foreplay…
Call me when youâ€™re sad. Call me when youâ€™re mad
Call me when youâ€™re home alone. Call me when youâ€™re freaky
Call me when youâ€™re nasty. Call me when you wanna *ahem*â€
All you rookies can learn a thing or two from this song – making a girl at ease and comfortable around you will get you very far in romance. Communication is key, I know it sounds cliche but if you dive into that concept and apply it you’ll be surprised how open a pretty girl can get and how exiting a love life can be. Hereâ€™s the original and Bag Raiders remix/mashup ofÂ Call Me Up, enjoy.
