Talk:The Bad Touch

Talker at the beginningEdit

Who is the guy in the beginning that says: "Haha! Well now, we call this the act of mating..." I know it sounds like a well known TV/Radio "Sex Therapist" but was wondering if there is any positive references to who it is. Billy Nair 00:06, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

It also kind of sounds like Kevin Spacey — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.191.220.54 (talk) 05:19, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Music based on?Edit

Where was it documented that the music is based on In The Night? I've heard that song before and the similarities are vague at best. If anything, dance music fans should know it as "Disco Hit", an obscure 80's dance track from Europe by Blockhouse. Little info exists about who they were. To hear a snippet of it, go to Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music and find it under "Italo Disco". Interface76 18:37, 21 June 2007 (UTC)Interface76

No, I'm pretty sure it's "In the Night." I can hear it really clearly.--76.246.176.32 (talk) 22:14, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

ReferencesEdit

I don't seem, to remember Sisqo being mentioned in the song... although, there is a reference to Gene Siskel, who's last name sounds like Sisqo. Removed for the time being. User:Rick 50000 5 September, 2006. 19:45. (UTC)

Correct. DWaterson 21:10, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
It is definitely Siskel, not Sisqo: "yes I'm Siskel, yes I'm Ebert, and you're getting two thumbs up". Nietzsche 2 (talk) 15:49, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

I dont really see the point in the references bit? It's just like what objects or people does mention? It's a bit obsessive. Like "daylight saving time?" I suppose if people hear it and dont know what it means its relevent, but... It's just so pointless. Any song could have a references, saying what everything in the song means. It doesn't seem very proper, thats all.--Ace Face 12:05, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

I don't remember the full extent of What Wikipedia Is Not, but for people who honestly have no clue what half of the references are (e.g. due to not being on top of American culture, i.e. most of the people who are not from USA) the references section is well needed. Whether that's appropriate for Wikipedia to have or not, I'm not sure. I don't think a references section is the same as a trivia section, as long as it deals with solid, obvious references and not "if"s and "maybe"s 83.249.236.210 18:36, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

SampleEdit

Should it be mentioned that there is a sampling of Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls?" pud--2.18.98 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.86.18.192 (talk) 22:25, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Didn't this reach number 1?Edit

I thought this came number 1 in the UK? c_falco 16:35 (GMT), 24th March 2008

Release dateEdit

"It was released in May 1999 as the lead single from their album Hooray for Boobies. It was released a year later, in the US and UK." - when was it released? May 1999 or May 2000? A year after the album? Or what? 87.112.54.212 (talk) 18:33, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

The song is not from EuropeEdit

"The song is not a euro-disco it is a disco tune but Bloodhound Gang is from American not Europe". So please just put disco or dance-pop or maybe dance. LucaElliot2 (talk) 11:56, 17 June 2014 (UTC) LucaElliot2

Lyricism sectionEdit

The edit Special:Diff/847031514 (by User:Andrzejbanas) and summary "removed trivial unsourced or poorly sourced observations about the son", removed the following content, which at the time had formed the majority of the article contents:


Working through the Genius citation (also removed) appears to support all of the statements in this section. Andrzejbanas, could you give an idea of what additional citations might be useful? —Sladen (talk) 12:49, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Hello, its not that the source was not stated appropriately, perhaps my edit summary was poor. Its more so that the Rap Genius and Genius sources are all from user-submitted theories and interpretations and not published sources. Its basically the equivilant of citing another Wiki online, which is something we do not do on wikipedia. Andrzejbanas (talk) 13:37, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Not a single reference to the "Discovery Channel" songEdit

You know Wikipedia is failing when the song that's known as "The Discovery Channel song" doesn't even have the words anywhere in the article. --Bobak (talk) 02:23, 25 December 2019 (UTC)
