Lied van de week : week 15 - 2010

Stylo - Gorillaz


Dit keer duurde het behoorlijk lang eer ik verslingerd raakte aan de nieuwe single van Gorillaz, maar nu is het dus écht wel prijs... De cartoonversie van Damon Albarn en de zijnen worden deze keer bijgestaan door Bobby Womack en Mos Def, en het opzwepende geluid van racewagens. Dat resulteert in een muzikale trip die voorbijrijdt met genoeg snelheid om je kilometers mee te voeren. In de clip mag Bruce Willis meespelen in een soort nieuwe versie van Death proof, de wilde-achtervolgingenfilm van Quentin Tarantino.

Je vindt het nummer op het nieuwe album Plastic beach, dat je
hier kan kopen.

Lyrics :

[Mos Def:]

Love electricity,
Shockwave central,
Power on the motherboard,
Yes.

Push up,
Overload,
Legendary,
Heavy glow,
Sunshine,
Thunder-roll,
Keep this on,
Yes the lantarn burns firm and easy,
And broadcast so raw and neatly,
Thunder-roll,
Sunshine,
Work it out now, now, now...

[2D:]
Overload, overload, overload,
Coming on to the
Overload, overload, overload,
Coming on to the
Overload, overload, overload,
Coming on to the
Overload, overload, overload,
Coming on to the...

Oh Stylo, (juice)
Go for blossom in your soul.
When you know your heart is light,
Electric is the love.

When the mako flies, (Like a giant fish,)
Up from the bottom in your eyes, (As it leaps from the stream,)
Then I'll know the twilight skies, (Blood curdles, it's death row,)
Are not so broken hearted. (Hot from the end of the line.)

[Bobby Womack:]
If it's love, it's electric.
It'll be flowing on the streets,
Night after night,
Just to get through the week.
Sometimes it's hard.

Right now.

[2D:]
Sing yourself (juice) out of depression,
Rise above
All recession.
If I know your heart,
Electric is the love.

[Bobby Womack:]
There's only one way;
Let it play a little while longer.
It's got a way of passing through man and woman,
In another world,
In another world in the universe.
Ohhhhh...

[2D:]
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the)
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the)
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the)
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the...)

[Bobby Womack:]
Right now.
Here's what we got to do.

If it's love, it's electric.
It'll be flowing on the streets,
Night after night,
Just to get through the week.
Sometimes it's hard.

[2D:]
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the)
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the)
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the)
(Overload, overload, overload,)
(Coming on to the...)

[Mos Def:]
That's what I'm talking about.

Love electricity,
Shockwave central,
Power on the motherboard,
Yes

Push up,
Overload,
Legendary,
Heavy glow,
Sunshine,
Thunder-roll,
Keep this on,
Yes the lantarn burns so firm and easy,
And broadcast so raw and easy,
Thunder-roll,
Sunshine,
Work it out now, now, now...

Right now.
