This is how easy it is to write an insanely catchy pop song
Brett Domino looks like an accountant, but donât underestimate him.
If his latest YouTube upload is anything to go by, he is a musical genius that has cracked the algorithms of pop chart success.
HisÂ covers of chart-topping artists like Justin Bieber and LMFAO have gotten a hundred thousand views, and nowÂ he’s condensed everything heâs learnt from those starsÂ into an amazing instructional how-to video.
Itâs a kind of hip-hop spin on what Axis of Awesomeâs â4 Chordsâ did for harmonies. Aspiring pop stars: all you need to take over the musical world, according to Domino, is an instrumental hook, a âkinda funky beatâ, a vocal hook (you can follow his lead and google âsexy phrasesâ), and some lyrics which ‘donât really matterâ. Useful tips given along the way include âuse the internet for helpâ and âkeep it sexyâ.
The song includes some creative rhyming (âI like it when you eat gateau/ I like it when you wear that shade of bordeauxâ). Poetry. It’s addressed to Jennifer Lawrence who is, according to Brett’s internet research, an example of a âsexy womanâ. Add a catchy bassoon hook and a rap bridge, and he has produced something that rivals most of whatâs on Radio One. In about five minutes flat. You might say itâs a comment on the current state of the music industry.
Brett Domino is the alter-ego of Leeds musician and comedian Rob J Madin. Other songs in his back catalogue of Flight Of The Conchords-esque parodies include âParents on Facebookâ and âPenelope (Please Stop Recommending So Many TV Dramas)â, but this is his first real original hit. Snubbed by Simon Cowell during their Britainâs Got Talent appearance in 2009, he seems to be having the last laugh as âHow to Make a Hit Pop Songâ already has 600,000 views in just a couple of days. Seems like heâs finally cracked it.
