Song Playing From Another Room is an audio-based meme in which people remix songs such that their audio quality is muffled and the bass is most prominent, making it sound as though the song is being played on speakers in another room.
On September 6th, 2016, Tumblr user dentiuschestus created a remix of Kirby background music titled "When your kids are playing kirby super star upstairs on your $4000 subwoofer" (shown below); muffling the sound of the theme while keeping the bass highly present to make the theme appear as if it was played in another room using expensive hardware. Over the next 9 months, the post gained over 27,000 notes.
Precursor: BASS BOOSTED
Prior to dentiuschestus' creation of the Kirby themesong remix, they already created several songs with prominent bass presence in it titled "BASS BOOSTED": featuring songs which only had the bass increased to insane levels but without them sounding like they are played in another room. While none of these managed to match the popularity of the Kirby remix, several versions managed to gain over a 1,000 notes; including The Pillar Men theme (shown below) and the relaxing sounds of rain and thunder. Similar songs are still created and shared over Tumblr alongside the songs playing from another room remixes, but these commonly don't tend to be as popular.
On November 20th, 2016, Tumblr user largecat uploaded a remix that made it sound as though Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You were playing in another room (shown below, top post). On December 8th of that year, largecat also posted a version using a song from a Kirby game, titled "kirby's dreamland theme song except your neighbors are playing it really loudly at 3 am" (shown below, bottom post). As of June 2017, the posts aquired respectively over 140,000 and 23,000 notes.
Fromanotherroom Single Serving Blog
The style began growing popular on Tumblr a few months later with the creation of the blog fromanotherroom, a single-serving blog dedicated to posting remixes within the genre. They made their first post on March 3rd, 2017 with the song "Good Ones Go" by Drake (shown below). Since then, some of their most popular posts have been Toto's "Africa" with over 91,000 notes, The Killers' "Mr. Brightside" with over 64,000 notes, and Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba" with over 52,000 notes. On June 25th, 2017, memedocumentation covered the popularity of the meme on Tumblr.
The Redbone meme in which the song "Redbone" by Childish Gambino is remixed to sound as though it were being played in various places started as a "From Another Room" remix. On May 14th, 2017, Twitter user @chloestixx tweeted a remix of the song where the audio was heavily muted, captioning it "What Redbone would sound like while you're making out in the bathroom of a house party." Her tweet gained over 85,400 retweets and 195,900 likes (shown below).
