Weekend Remix: Play That Funky Music Football Head
Song: Hey Arnold! Theme Beat
Based On: Hey Arnold! Theme
Original Composer: Jim Lang
Hey! Get off my stoop!
No, you know what? For this week’s remix, you can stick around. Just don’t breathe heavily behind me like Brainy. There are a lot words you can throw toward’s Nickelodeon’s Hey Arnold! Funny. Unique. Triangle.
But no matter how you describe it, you have to admit that the Nicktoon was generally just so darn cool. And this is probably best exemplified by the show’s swingy intro. There was just something about it that breathes smooth inner-city, like it’s the proper soundtrack to that one cool cousin from the “big city.”
The intro was one of the little factors that helped set this show apart from other cartoons and made it such a staple in the hearts of 90’s nostalgia addicts.
pl4y4h’s hip-hop inspired remix keeps that same feeling intact, while also taking it in another direction. The theme sample meshes well with the beat, still having that carefree and too cool for school feel found in the original. And hearing Helga Pataki’s uttering of Arnold and Football Head stuttered and cut just plain makes this remix fun.

Until next weekend…GO Party!
