After WandaVision‘s latest episode aired last week, millions of us the world over have had the “BUM BUM BAHHHHM” of Agatha All Along going round our heads in an infinite loop, and it doesn’t look like that’s about to change.
The unforgettable 63-second song, which – spoiler! – finally revealed Kathryn Hahn‘s Agatha Harkness as a secret antagonist, was released yesterday (Tuesday) along with the whole episode seven soundtrack; and it’s gaining some nice momentum on iTunes on either side of the Atlantic.
At time of writing, it’s at No5 on the US rankings, and it’s knocking on the door of the Top 20 in the UK. Imagine if it had come out a few days earlier when the hype was even bigger! We could be looking at an actual chart smash.
It’s credited performance-wise to Eric Bradley, Gerald White, Greg Whipple, Jasper Randall, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, plus Hahn herself. Anderson-Lopez and Lopez are the composers-slash-writers behind the inescapable earworm.
Guess it makes a nice change to having UK Hun? in my brain all day every day, huh…
