Glitterati tune: Slow down, Jolene!

Recently, I’ve told you about two historical Belgian subcultures that featured playing pitched-down versions of songs: Popcorn and New Beat. There’s another fairly recent example of this phenomenon, with a surprisingly pleasant result. When Dolly Parton’s Jolene is played at 33 rpm (in stead of 45 rpm, or slowed down by 25%), a completely new kind of song, with a spooky male voice appears. Eerie, isn’t it?
