Sharks shag to Salt 'N' Pepa, not Britney

Posted on


Pepa_lSomeone please tell me the Discovery Channel was filming this: According to this piece from The Independent, researchers at 10 different German aquariums played sharks music for two hours a day, for four weeks, hoping to find a sound that stimulates their libidos. (The captives apparently aren’t knockin’ fins like they used to.) While Britney Spears fell flat at a facility in Munich, other cities got lucky: “Push It,” by Salt ‘N’ Pepa (pictured) was a hit in Speyer, Joe Cocker’s “You Can Leave Your Hat On” did the trick in Timmendorf, and Justin Timberlake’s “Rock Your Body” had them courting in Konstanz.

What tracks would you recommend?
