OK, this has been annoying me ever since this song first came out, and subsequently all of my friends when I ask them about it. For anyone who has the song, (or if you don’t, download the first 8 seconds of it, that’s all you need) you will notice the song begins with a guy beating away on his drum set with a few other minor sounds as well.
Listen VERY carefully to the music JUST BEFORE the guy says the first word in the song “Aruba”.
You will here a distinct noise which sounds something like errrr… hitting a wooden spoon on a metal rubbish bin. (OR SOMETHING like that.) You only here here it for the first time JUST before the guy says “Aruba” and you then here it twice more.
WHAT I CAN’T FIGURE OUT IS…
The initial time you here this sound, is he hitting the instrument once… or twice very quickly?
I know most of you right now are thinking… ‘OH MY GOD… you SERIOUSLY need a life to want to know something like that’.
But being a person who has recently taken up drums, this has really been bothering me lately even more so.
SO… insults aside, can anyone give me the low down?
