The Avalanches Lyrics


Here we come, we got funk, [Repeat: x2]
Somebody, somewhere, sex with me,
Here, here we come, we got funk [Repeat: x2]

Next to me [Repeat: x6]

The disco, the disco, the disco, that's gotta be right, [Repeat: x4]
That's gotta be right, down to the midnight, to start
Down to the disco, the disco, the disco,
Down to the midnight, the start to the midnight, start to the midnight,
That's gotta be right

There's a tense young man that's goin' round, turnin' the joint, outside down, [Repeat: x2]
Down to the disco
Start to the midnight, down to the disco
Down to the disco

well said

2:27 is my favorite part, wish they elaborated on that part. Genius how they switched out the bass on the main sample in favor of a different one to give it more of a disco feel.

Freeman Taylor

YES EXACTLY

The Avalanches and The Wiseguys had this amazing ability to sample and loop different beats and melodies to create something extraordinary.

1:15... the way they chopped that female vocal sample is truly great

Oddball Frequency

masterpiece of an album

Jeremy Voss

the flute loop groove at :39 kills me.  

Bill Smathers

The sample is Manfredo Fest- Moondust (near the beginning)
