Besides that confounded "Call Me Maybe" song, this was what you, me and everybody else heard in Turkey. The tune is "Ai Se Eu Te Pego" by Michel Telo. Yeah, it's in Portuguese. It was especially everywhere in Istanbul. This tune is almost insultingly simple: one verse, one chorus, one instrumental break (all liberally repeated) and a few hundred attractive Brazilian chicks singing along. I checked up on Telo's older stuff. He's quite a bit paunchier, his skin is terrible and he has trouble singing in tune. But not here. Anyhow, this is very pleasant Brazilian pop music. And honestly, I think this is the only time a pop tune featuring an accordion has garnered 450+ million views.
