  • Calling Out Around The World

    Happened to hear
    Tinie Tempah feat 2 Chainz: Trampoline
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=6VOeQZ6Bi7I
    just now
    and on the fade out verse he tosses in the bigtown call outs
    specifically
    Sydney, what's going down? New York, what's going down?
    LA, what's going down? Vegas, what's going down?
    Dublin, what's going down? Paris, what's going down?
    Lagos, what's going down? Oslo, what's going down?
    Toronto, what's going down? Stockholm, what's going down?
    Berlin, what's going down? Johannesburg, what's going down?
    Tokyo, what's going down? Rio, what's going down?
    Beijing, what's going down? London, what's going down?


    What are your favourite examples of this,
    added points for early examples, the far reaching and parochial, or just plain unlikely.

    First to spring to mind is Drummond and Cauty's exhaustive titular rollcall
    The Jams - It's Grim Up North
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6eo3bnYmwA
    "Through the downpour and diesel roar, Rockman and Kingboy D can feel a regular dull thud. Whether this is the eternal echo of a Victorian steam driven revolution or the turbo kick of a distant Northern rave is irrelevant. Thus inspired, The JAMS climb into the back of their truck and work."

      Tasty homegrown version on Damian Marley's Welcome To Jamrock (World Jam Riddim)
      Zagu Zar - Welcome To England
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_y-6C9AG80
      From Brixton, to the world of Sheffield, Leeds, Greater Manchester, even Scotland gets an include outside the bounds of the titular remit.

        What time is it in England?
        What time is it in Gibraltar?
        What time is it over there in Fisterra?

        What time is it in Japan?
        What time is it in Mozambique?
        What time is it in Washington?
        ¡A tope con la vida!

            and its got to be done :

            Philadelphia, PA
            Baltimore in DC now
            Don't forget the motor city
            On the streets of Brazil
            Back in the USSR
            No matter where you are


            Way down in L.A., everyday
            Dancing in the street
            Cross in China too
            Me and you
            Dancing in the street

              Surely Roy Ayers merits a mention here.

              To infinity - and beyond!

                        Tinie Tempah's never been to Scunthorpe. But he has been to Southampton.

                              I was a bit disappointed when I finally got the Payback lp and it didn´t have the DJ shout outs over the top like my 45 did.
