"Yeah Yeah" is a song by New Zealand-born musician, singer and producer Willy Moon, initially released on 5 May 2012. The song peaked to number 26 on the UK Singles Chart and 18 in the US on the Billboard Rock Chart.

The song was re-released on 10 September 2012 due to its use in Apple Inc's 2012 iPod lineup TV advertisement, including the 5th-Generation Touch, 7th-Generation Nano, and 4th-Generation Shuffle.[1] It was also featured in the official soundtrack of the 2012 Xbox 360 game Forza Horizon,[2] and in the trailer for the 2013 comedy film Last Vegas.[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video to accompany the release of "Yeah Yeah" was directed by Alex Cortes and debuted on YouTube on 31 October 2012.[4] The video is stylistically influenced by the song "Prisencolinensinainciusol" [prizenkolinensinainˈtʃuzol], composed by Adriano Celentano, and performed by Celentano and his wife, singer/actress-turned-record producer Claudia Mori. It was released as a single on November 3, 1972, and later on the album Nostalrock.

Remixes[edit]

"Yeah Yeah" has been remixed by Cedric Gervais, A1 Bassline, Sinden and DJ Cable. There was also an "Urban" remix, which featured a guest verse from Wiley (also re-worked into DJ Cable's remix).[5]
