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][original research?]
