A few years ago, I wouldn't be caught dead listening to something with
the unabashed pop feel of this track.
The original is poppier and busier, with a strangely Indian sounding sample by Gold Panda opening it.
Goldroom takes "You (Hahaha)" and
elevates it to a whole other level by stripping away the Gold Panda sample,
adding punchy basslines, tricky grooves, and a signature aural firework sound
marking the chorus. So that when you hit 3:08 and the cannons go off, you know you're
in nu disco land.
And what a wonderful world it is.
The song is about learning to walk away,
a lesson we could all could use.
My favourite line is "choke when you
see love grow" and “you were meant to be alone” which she says a thousand
times as the song fades out.
The chorus is what will hook you, with
the very unusual “hahahaha” preceding the matter of fact “I was right” and (too bad) “you
fucked it up.”
Gentle, groovy beratement amplified by
classic Goldroom. It couldn’t get any better.
