Down Slow
Moby Lyrics

Overall Meaning

As the song is an instrumental, there are no lyrics to interpret. However, we can analyze the music itself to understand the emotions and themes behind it. "Down Slow" is a moody, slow-paced track with a melancholic tone. The instrumentation is simple, featuring a haunting piano melody accompanied by electronic textures and atmospheric sounds. The overall result is a piece that evokes feelings of longing, sadness, and introspection.

The use of piano in the song is particularly striking. Its slow and mournful melody adds weight to the track, and the electronic effects used in the background provide an ethereal quality to the soundscape. The contrast between the organic piano and the inserted electronic effects is a hallmark of Moby's sound, and this track is an excellent example of his use of contrasting elements to create a distinctive mood.

One interpretation of the track is that it represents the feeling of being trapped in a low mood or a difficult situation, but ultimately finding a way to move forward. The slow, steady pace of the song could represent the process of working through and overcoming challenges. The inclusion of a piano melody also suggests a personal connection to the emotions being expressed, perhaps indicating that this is a deeply personal track for Moby.

I was on my 20's driving on a VW Pointer from Queretaro to Pinal de Amoles. The landscape fitted perfectly the song. Thank you Moby, after 20 years, I still have chills with these songs.


Ahh down slow..on repeat was my 'come down' tune after a heavy night in the club! Helped me sleep 😴🥰


I'm glad to see there are people who still listen to this today.


Love Moby Instrumentals! 


I've had this on Repeat for nearly a week now. ;_; So chill


Good for finding ones center.


Moby was out here in 1999 making proto-vaporwave


This whole album is great


truly unederrated album


​@@ojberrettaberretta5314 Platinum in over 20 countries, it's the highest-selling electronic album of all time. Its many, many singles helped keep it in the charts for two years, and it's the only album that had every single track featured in advertisements.

It also did all of this while achieving near-universal acclaim from critics, and introduced millions of people to electronic music.

Tell me again: how is this record "underrated"?
