Day 13 Song 13 - Do Yr Show

Wow - this song has a massive history. To cut it short, I bought the record with the original sample loop in Sth Africa on the Red Bull DJ Academy, got the basic lyrics ("I was with her for 8 months at the same time as being with this other guy") from my then-flatmate, Sarah (shit forgot her surname! oh well..!) and then my good old buddy Patrick Petzold (Rich n Kool, Nachlader) came along and did this fabulous French rap (french rap is really one of my favourite things ever) at the Masha Qrella Studio, and Muffin did the "mnah mnah"s and Kwesi, infamous 8mm doorman and motorbike fanatic, did the deep black man "build a house next door to you"s. That whole 2nd half (the english lyrics) is ripped off this song called Mona, which Craig McLachlan from Neighbours made totally famous in the early 90s. Oh shit I hope he doesn't google himself and I get in trouble...

no! :) it was not by accident.
i fell in love with your "fancy robots" song, after i've seen it on tv! this slow beat was very inspiring to me in this moment so i started to cover your song on the guitar. maybe i'll put it on youtube sometime. hope you won't indicate me for that. =)

i have already saved your page to my favourites!

best wishes, keep it up!

I used get this song stuck in my head from time to time (this happens with many of your songs, actually) and then I'd feel sad that there was no way for me to listen to the song. You rock, girlfriend!
