"Video Game" is a pop/hip-hop song that uses the names of 50 video games as euphemisms for sex. "Video Game" is one of the songs from Slam Horses new album, Finally Getting Nowhere, which celebrates sexuality. It was recorded with female porn stars, and released November 8, 2012. Over 50 adult film actresses auditioned to be on this album. Bed springs samples provide the rhythmic structure of Kama Sutra. Other songs have samples of zippers being unzipped, and the sounds of champagne being uncorked and poured. Most of the guitar work on the album is 70s-style wah-wah, which makes the whole album sound like a porn movie soundtrack. Half the songs on the album are about sex, and several others are tangentially about sex.

Slam Horse's new album, Finally Getting Nowhere, has the feel of electronic dance music (EDM), with hip-hop, industrial, reggae, and So-Cal rock elements providing nuance and depth. Unlike many traditional EDM artists, Slam Horse writes and performs his music organically on synthesizers, guitars, and drums, with loops and samples holding a secondary position and providing what he refers to as "sparkle." The lyrics are clever, intelligent, and edgy.


Slam Horse is an accomplished singer, writer, and musician who has written, sung, and performed in a wide variety of genres, particularly in progressive rock, theater, experimental, and new age. He is trained in voice, piano, guitar, and drums. He currently studies with a prominent Julliard-trained voice coach who has been the voice coach for MTV's Made, American Idol, and Cheetah Girls. He has 14 albums to his credit.


On his new release, Slam Horse wrote the lyrics and music, and performed on lead vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, synthesizers, acoustic drums, percussion, and electronic drums. Studio musicians included: Noam Wallenberg on additional guitar; Ben Joseph on electric bass; Sandy Day on backing vocals; & a large variety of porn stars and voice-over talents providing sexy statements and much more.
