1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Can anyone ID this annoying song?

    I've heard it at my gym about 4 times now. They play it in an aerobics class, which is some kind of Latin Dance aerobics.

    The key features that sticks out is a saxophone, or a synthesizer sounding like a sax more likely, just plays octaves, over and over, in a descending pattern.

    I call it "the honking song" 'cause it sounds like they just sampled some geese or ducks and put it to music.

    I just want to find it 'cause I'm always complaining about it to my GF and she wants to hear it now.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you have a smart phone, download an app called Shazam.
    It will do all the leg work for you, just open the app hit the button on the touch screen and it'll figure it out.

    If you dont want to use SoundHound (works great!) try searching youtube for "Top 20 Zumba Songs" or somelikedat.

    FOUND IT! Many thanks!

    The song is "Calabria" by Enur, for anyone who's curious.

    Thanks again, bass_case!

    Hmmm... not as catchy as I was hoping. It's no "Tacata".

    Hate to admit it, but I love that track. There are "related" songs, Crystal waters & Alex Gaudino "Destination Unknown" was remixed with "Calabria" - "destination Calabria" - it was huge in 2008.
