A song by Fatboy Slim, with lyrics/vocals by Macy Gray, released on Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars.

The song's really more about simple plays on words, rhyming, and the way vocals are ordered and presented than anything else. Gray is always a delight to listen to, and the way Slim mixes up her vocals is intriguing. He cuts the recording to pieces and throws half of it into the background, letting it surface in bits and pieces, seemingly in no particular order except for a few extended sequences of wordplay. I can hardly make out half the background samples (I've only included the most obvious ones in parentheses, especially ones that interact with the foreground vocals) and I'm pretty sure there are several lines that never come up in the foreground, or even clear enough for me to make out all the words. All in all, it's a far more solid track than Demons, where Slim let Gray take control - the vocals on this one don't stand alone, but that's what makes it a sort of gestalt song - no element of it has even close to the appeal that comes from the complexity of everything ordered together. And the "Blue it", "Be my _ man", and "A ya" parts always make me smile.
