Stop the Rock - Apollo 440

Legbamel Not-Pop

I’ve been avoiding posting Stop the Rock because it seems like such a popular song, to me. That’s probably because my family loves it and I hear it several times a week. It turns out that, despite having appeared in “Gone in 60 Seconds” and a couple of video games a decade or so ago, it has not remained a well-known song. In truth, I cannot imagine why. It gets you moving and sticks in your head for ages, forcing you to tap your toes in odd places like waiting in line to get your cappuccino and during boring meetings at work. Perhaps that’s just what happens to me, as I’m prone to earworms like this song, but just writing about it has me doing a little chair bop and planning to listen to it as soon as I’m done. Now you can listen to it with me.

(I had to do some research on whether this ever charted before I can posted this. The fact that the folks at work had never heard it until I started subjecting them all to my musical taste means very little in regard to the pop music scene. This one hit number ten in the UK in 1999. I don't care, though. I still love it.)

One Response so far.
