There’s no secret that within the formula known as Stimulus Progression lies the ability to manipulate human beings to do whatever we want them to do by using music. BPM’s increased at high levels naturally increase heart rates, which is why house music mixed in with a little bit of ecstasy has been known to make a heart or two falter to its last beat. The affects of music on the body and mind are very real, and with those powers come the ability to also sway humans to do whatever the music dictates.
There are songs that we grow to love simply by association and there are others that we just can’t help but loving the moment we hear. We don’t know why, we don’t even think that there are magic formulas at hand, we just know that these songs make us dance, make us feel pretty fucking amazing, and that they are instantly our new most favorite song of all time.
Montevideo – Horses (Zimmer Remix) is one of those songs that has just that effect; not because it’s the most amazing dance song ever, not because it has the most amazing sounds ever, and surely not because the vocals are so enchanting that they hypnotize us into loving the tune. It’s simply utterly effective because it carries some of todays hottest dance/electro elements in it, it progresses at an intense rate with a ceaseless stomping bottom graced by a groove that bobs and weaves it’s way throughout til the end. It ‘magically’ moves your entire body, because aside from the elements that are built to make your bottom half move, it keeps your upper half busy and going with super fun synths and an incredibly great combination of claps galore that feel as if they are coming from a circle of hands around you, and those super cool lasers straight out of Will Ferrell’s finger guns in a Blades of Glory moment.
Horses can sleep while standing.
Horses remeber everything.
Horses are unpredictable,
creatures of habit and adorable.
Horses are like human beings:
if you take them by the head
they are prisoners and glad.”
