Crazy Frog Axel F at the number one spot
Crazy Frog Ring tones have become quite popular here in Europe and according to this latest news, I guess that the funny-looking, but annoying frog is going to ring around for a while longer.
A song based on an annoying mobile phone ring tone has hopped to the number one spot on Britain's single charts.
The "Crazy Frog Axel F" ring tone, inspired by the 1980's movie theme from 'Beverly Hills Cop', is the first song that was created specifically for mobile phones to crossover onto the mainstream pop music charts.
Saying that the ring tone has just been inspired by the 80's Axel F song is an understatement and I wonder if we can really speak of a new trend here. But what is actually really interesting is that the super-annoying Crazy Frog song has replaced Oasis as new number one and has beaten the new single of Coldplay.
In any case, I guess this is going to become a summer hit here in Europe and I am expecting to see a crazy frog dance choreographed to go along with it.
Curious to see what this is all about?
