Thought you could finally take Baby Shark off your Spotify playlist? Not so fast there, mama. And PSLs! That's right -- in case you didn't know, a Halloween version of "Baby Shark" exists, and it's been torturing parents every fall for the last two years. That might be why you've noticed it bubbling up again, as parents are starting to ease into the Halloween spirit along with back to school activities. Wondering what the main difference is? Well, instead of the "Do do do do do do do's," you'd normally sing along to, the remix gets a ghosty makeover with lines such as "Baby shark boo boo boo, boo boo boo boo boo Unlike the original tune, which was created by Pink Fong, the remix was made by a company called Super Simple , which reportedly created the holiday-themed version to help young learners. But even if you're dreading having yet another "Baby Shark"-related tune stuck in your head, speech therapist Laura Brown says the songs can be helpful to young kids who are just learning language skills.

Coachella had a "Baby Shark" moment this year, thanks to a remix by electronic music producer Jauz. The remix, which was played to a huge crowd during the festival's daytime, was particularly incredible because of the transition into Darude's "Sandstorm," the musical equivalent of a meme. Did I watch 3 hours of replays to find this? Yes pic. Now Jauz's remix of "Baby Shark" has been released , as part of a collaboration between Jauz and Pinkfong, the South Korean education company behind the song's most popular version. Jauz, real nam Sam Vogel, told Mashable he contacted Pinkfong to ask permission after his tweet promising to remix the children's song went viral, allowing him to premiere it at Coachella in Coachella is all about having fun and I think sometimes artists, including myself, start to take themselves too seriously especially for a show of that magnitude. At the end of the day I'm there to make sure everyone is smiling and having as much fun as possible and I think I did my job. As Vogel mentioned, the official remix doesn't include the "Sandstorm" sample which was from the Coachella set, but maybe we can hope.
Popular as a campfire song, it has taken off since , when Pinkfong , a South Korean education company, turned it into a viral video which spread through social media, online video, and radio. Some sources have mentioned traditional myths as a basis, others camping origins in the 20th century,  and some see it as possibly developed by camp counselors inspired by the movie Jaws. Different versions of the song have the sharks hunting fish, eating a sailor, or killing people, who then go to heaven. Various entities have copyrighted original videos and sound recordings of the song, and some have trademarked merchandise based on their versions; however, according to The New York Times , the underlying song and characters are believed to be in the public domain. The single peaked at 25th on of the German charts  and at 21 in the Austrian charts. The German version of the song remains popular among German youth groups and multiple variations also in different dialects of German  have been published. Johnny Only, a children's entertainer based in Upstate New York, was a DJ at a kids camp, and the counselors would regularly perform the song with their campers, acting out the hand gestures and going through each verse. Only saw how engaged and animated the campers were when "Baby Shark" was performed, so when he became a full-time children's entertainer, he released his own version. The "Baby Shark" song was further popularized by a video produced by Pinkfong , an education brand within South Korean media startup SmartStudy. This version of the song was performed by thenyear-old Korean-American singer Hope Segoine.
