'Born Slippy' by Underworld

So I picked up the single for this yesterday at the used CD store.

Best 50 cents I've ever spent.

This song proves that you don't need to have guitars to produce rockin' tracks, and it rocks harder than 90% of them too.

Plus, well, yeah, it was great in Trainspotting.

It is indeed a great track, with the separation of beats and melody. I'm talking about the 10-minute version of course: Born Slippy (Nuxx)

Underworld is one of my favorite bands of all time!

Born Slippy. It's even better live because they never seem to play it the same way twice and they always find these new ways to sneak into the song, so you don't know what song it is until that "Dunnnh Dunnnh Dunnnh Dunnnh Dunnnh Dunnnh" sound hits you over the head and then the whole crowd just goes apeshit!

I love "Born Slippy." I have three versions of it from various compilations, but the Nuxx 10 minute mix is my favorite.

Something about Thom Yorke's vocal delivery in 'Skip Divided' reminds me of this song.

Born Slippy is one of my favourite driving songs - have to keep an eye on the speedo tho - wouldn't want to try and drive at that tempo - might get myself in a wee spot of bother!!
