Hm! I’m pleasantly surprised! Not only is this a tad grimier than Guetta’s usual schtick, Skylar Grey is taking a classic song in this EDM track. You can say that Guetta is capitalizing on Avicii’s break through EDM/country mashup with ‘Shot Me Down’. Hell, I wasn’t expecting this. It takes Nancy Sinatra’s ‘Bang Bang’ (you may know it from Kill Bill) and gives it a grittier texture and, honestly, isn’t featured that much! A lot of ‘Shot Me Down’ is about the production and how David Guetta is experimenting with his sound. I like it! It’s not pushing EDM to a new level, but as a DJ Guetta is taking a chance and it works!
