Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #96 – “OYAHYTT,” from Sorry to Bother You
96. “OYAHYTT,” from Sorry to Bother You
I’m pretty sure everyone is at least partially aware of this one. It was all over the advertising for this movie, which felt like it was everywhere around the time the film came out. It’s catchy as shit, this song. And yes, in case you didn’t realize it, the title is short for “Oh yeah, alright, hell yeah, that’s tight.” It’s all about the instrumentation for this one, but also… it fits the film. It just sort of encapsulates the entire film in my mind. It’s a pretty unforgettable melody that makes you want to get up and party. Hard not to put it on this list.
