Midnight in a Perfect World
DJ Shadow Lyrics

Insight, foresight, more sight
The clock on the wall is a quarter past midnight

I don't love you
Heading to garden of love, ah
Life come seeking of love, of love

Midnight, midnight, midnight, midnight

Now, now, now, now, now, now
Ah ooh
12 o'clock
Ah ooh
Rock rock rock rock the midnight rush
Ah ooh
Ah ooh

Now, now, now, now, now, now

Midnight, midnight, midnight, midnight

I don't love you
The midnight rush
Heading to garden of love, ah
Life come seeking of love , of love
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Now now now now now approach now approaching now approach now approaching
Now now now now now now now now approaching midni-
Now now now now now now approaching mid
Now now now now approaching midni-
Now now approaching now now now now approaching midnight

This song came out in 1996 and it still sounds like the music of tomorrow.

Every bit as good as it was 20+ years ago.This is what made me fall in love with hip hop.Hall of Fame shit period.


Lots of 90s electronic did. Problem is it all became about attention grabbing. Which is why even proper hip hop sounds lame
