"Babble Bobble" is the ninth track on the "Dropped Frames, Vol. 1" instrumental release by Mike Shinoda.
"Babble Bobble" is a song by Mike Shinoda made during the 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic.
In March 2020, the global pandemic created by the COVID-19 coronavirus caused communities to quarantine at home. During this time, Mike Shinoda decided to start live streaming online and inviting fans to watch him create new instrumental music.
"Babble Bobble" was a track made by Mike on March 22, 2020, making it one of his oldest CoronaJams done via streaming. This when he was still calling his streams "Beat Making Demos" instead of "CoronaJams" and still streaming from his iPhone on Instagram Live with a one hour time limit.
Mike didn't talk about this song when he was making it and the stream abruptly cut off in the middle of the session due to the time limit.
On April 29, 2020, Mike revisited four CoronaJams to rework them. The tracks were "KarmaKon" (unreleased), "Babble Bobble", "King Paprika", and "Neon Crickets." Mike said, "Today we're going to do a couple of things. I realized I had some of those early jams that were either low quality audio because they were on Instagram Live only, so if some of you guys missed those, you can see those today.
The song title "Babble Bobble" is likely a reference by Mike to the 1986 arcade game titled "Bubble Bobble."
The beginning of "Babble Bobble" segues from the previous song on Dropped Frames, Vol. 1, "Osiris."
Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
