The hook of this track belongs to the voice of Noodle, Miho Hatori. Miho Hatori owns the chorus of nonsensical words, "Get the cool, get the cool shoeshine. It has no deeper meaning, it's just a happy chorus sung by a contagiously happy ten year old Japanese girl who barely knows any English. Noodle is so happy, she is able to make the depressed and anxious 2D the happiest blue haired man in the world, at least for one song. One of the biggest influences on the sound of this track as well as a couple other Gorillaz tracks is the band Tom Tom Club.
Tom Tom Club are a funky dance group that have been majorly sampled in hip hop over the years and consist of the rhythm section of the brilliantly artsy and weird punk-funk band Talking Heads, bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz. So when Dan The Automator thought the track needed something, he e-mailed the track to the duo and they were able to give the song it's finishing touches.
At the band's home studio, Tina Weymouth recorded some smooth "la la" backing vocals over Damon's pre-chorus of scats and Chris Frantz added some finger snaps over the song's quiet and subtle ending. While these additions may not seem like much, these simple add ons are what got the track on to the album.
So we can thank these two for allowing this brilliant piece of work to be released to the public we should also thank them for their astounding work with Talking Heads and Brian Eno, but this blog isn't about the two of them, it's about Gorillaz. Jamie Hewlett once again perfectly captures the song with the visuals he made for it. The video consists of the band driving in their Geep, the vehicle featured on the cover of the band's record.
Murdoc drives the group on to a course full of safety hazards, ranging from a loop de loop to a broken bridge to even an alien invasion. However, their biggest obstacle is the giant elk at the end of the road. Murdoc tries to kill it with the Geep's weapon system, but the elk sneezes back the giant bullets, causing the band to be left in a pile of debris. In this video, the group goes through just as many obstacles as they usually do in their videos.
But in this video, they don't fret and remain happy as can be, until the end that is. When the bullets hit them, the characters go back to being as unhappy as they are on the rest of the record, their happiness being only a brief 3 minute interlude on an album full of darkness and anxiety.
Miho Hatori was not able to go with Gorillaz on their first tour as she was and still is leading her own group, Cibo Matto. So on Gorillaz tour, the song was reliant on samples of her vocals as well as the song's main drum sample, leaving very little room for improvisation excluding a cool slide guitar part by Simon Katz giving the song a blues edge.
The track achieved radio success through a much faster dance-pop remix, by producers Stuart Bradbury and Electric Six's Damien Mendis under the name Soulchild. After not playing the track for 9 years, the track experienced a surprise revival on the band's "Escape To Plastic Beach Tour. Tina Weymouth's backing vocals are covered by the tour's in-house choir, which along with Damon's vocals, convey a sense of energy which wasn't present in it's earlier live incarnation.
RevBug it's Dell leaving Russels head and actually becoming a thing everyone sees. Rock the house explains that when Dell leaves his body completely to rap that hardcore verse and Russel was completely taken over. His alter ego making his physical appearance causes Russel to literally spazz out in random moments and during drum playing Flag Mj on March 27, General Comment I dont know why but this is my favorite song on the CD!!!
