ContentEdit

The track is marked by its distinctive sampling of a woman's voice saying "I've noticed you around / I find you very attractive / Would you go to bed with me?". The lyrics – with almost identical wording – were originally used as part of a psychological study conducted in 1978.[2][3]

As a soundtrackEdit

The Peruvian TV channel Andina de Televisión, through its extinct gossip program Magaly Teve, used it for its section of bloopers that end with the Crazy Seal breaks TVs, and an instrumental version sounds, created by the Peruvian producer and singer Carlos Figueroa which also makes different versions of the song of Phone Gossip. Previously, the original version was used. [4]
