They just called to say "hello" (again)

Martin Solveig's Hello is pretty much the perfect radio rotation record. It's under three minutes, it's insanely catchy and it comes packed with more bubbles than an Aero. Consequently, Hello has been played on UK radio more than 500 times in the last 30 days, nearly 10 months after it was released.

Not one to change a winning formula, the French DJ has re-teamed with Dragonette for a sequel. Called Big In Japan , it picks up exactly where Hello left off. I don't just mean it has an equally cheery demeanour and a towering selection of dance beats. I mean this song has literally been recorded over the top of Hello. The instruments are the same, the melody is in the same key, even the tempo is a completely identical 128bpm.

Don't believe me? Here's the intro to both songs, played at exactly the same time.

Still, it's hard to gripe when a song is this infectiously upbeat. If you loved Hello, you're going to love this too... Guest chants come from Japanese reality show group Idoling!

Big In Japan - single version (with Dragonette; feat. Idoling!!!)

10 points to the first person who mashes this up with Brimful Of Asha.
