The interlude, which transitions into ‘911’, is now being used to soundtrack your fave cultural moments, from Coronation Street to Mean Girls
Arriving mid-lockdown, the record is full of much-needed dancefloor bangers, save for some instrumental interludes. Each clocking in at under a minute, the interludes are likely there to keep the album high in streaming charts (where shorter songs boost the amount of listens an album has), but Twitter has co-opted them for another reason: memes.
“Chromatica II”, which provides the transition between “Fun Tonight” and arguably the album’s best track, “911”, has been used to soundtrack everything from Regina George getting hit by a bus in Mean Girls, David Bowie’s Labryinth entrance, and that woman throwing a cat in a bin.
Starting slow and building to a room-shaking crescendo, the interlude is the perfect piece of music to add drama to any cultural moment. Here’s a round-up of the best below.
