Dial up my number now
Weaving it through the wire
Switch me on, turn me up
Don't want it Baudelaire
Just glitter lust
Switch me on, turn me up
I want to touch you you're just
Made for love
I need la la la la la
I need ooo la la la la
Calls up and round me
Teasing your poetry
Switch me on, turn me up
Oh child of Venus you're just
Made for love
You know I walk for days
I wanna waste some time
You wanna be so mean
You know I love to watch
I wanna love some more
I'll never be the same
A broken heel like a heart
I'll never walk again

La Grange a-how how how how... ;)
 
ZZ Top "borrowed heavily from John Lee Hooker's "Boogie Chillen" and Slim Harpo's "Shake Your Hips" when they composed "La Grange" - as did Norman Greenbaum when composing "Spirit In The Sky".  In a failed copyright lawsuit regarding "La Grange", the court rules that the rhythm was in the public domain.  In other words: it's a standard R&B rhythm.
I love Goldfrapp but not when they're channelling T Rex.
Alison! Ooh La La me right now! Please!
 
The glam band music video of this is kinda cool too.

And ZZ Top.

This comment is from 2005. If you're still listening to RP, you may want to acquaint yourself with the music Goldfrapp (Alison and Will Gregory) have been making since. Quite diverse and brilliant.

How about a comment like - Go Fuck Yourself?

Never fails to get me up and moving!!
First time for me and liking it! Initially felt a Sweet vibe
Rated an 8 just for the cover art.
Sounds like Chris Isaak.
This whole record is good! Her slow songs are pure magic.
This beat made me turn up the volume!
So, it's from the cover art of a different single, but Alison (or her social media manager) posted this to Facebook and Twitter yesterday - for everyone who'd like to see Brienne of Tarth wearing nothing but a rabbit mask and an Alison Goldfrapp on her lap (no explicit nudity).


Cool, I've never heard this one, even though familiar with newer Goldfrapp.
Funny to see comments from 13 years ago.
I stopped what I was doing to see who this was with this boogieing, get-down song.  And regardless of the negative comments below re: ripoff of other artists/styles/songs may I humbly remind you that there is really nothing new under the sun.  She does a right good job of blending  past artists styles/lyrics/etc into one jumping song.  An 8 right out of the box for me.

ummm can you have an IQ any lower?? it's called a SAMPLE, you twits (reference, homage, parody etc) - late sixties/early seventies, pre-disco, cerrone...anyone? as for t-rex - duh!! 1 of their songs is called Ride a White Horse ('Ride a White Swan'...). i don't care for the 'opinions' of anyone who knows enough about ZZ Top to 'hear' it in anything, anyway. And the dumbass who compared Alison Goldfrapp to Britchrispinksimpson...ok, i think it's things like this that cause aneurysms.
When I first heard this, I thought: Whoever this is, it's a total rip-off of Goldfrapp.
It's hard for me to rate this. I don't think it's unacceptably close to Spirit in the Sky. But her music creeps me out.
Too many licks ripped from other "real" bands... :ask:
I hear T-rex.....
I would prefer to listen to any of the tracks from her first album Felt Mountain, rather than hear this again. Ooh La La doesn't do it for me.

What's there to say? Goldfrapp have done it again. Pop doesn't get much cooler than this!

Yup, and middling besides that.

New Goldfrapp? Yay!
