The Tao of Scooter

What I Learned From Scooter’s 1995 hit “Move Your Ass!”

  • “Get up your shirts and wait for further instructions!”
  • “Starting the microphone business I’ve got one message for the next decade: Move! Your! Ass!
  • “Maximum respect to the whole European posse!”
  • “Ravers of the universe! You keep the spirit alive!”
  • “Come on posse! You’ve gotta keep it up!”
  • “Come on party! You’ve gotta move!”
  • “It’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice!”
  • “Rave nation!”

Scooter vs Depeche

Posted in Dance,Depeche Mode,Music Reviews,Scooter by M on October 16, 2005

HP Baxxter from Scooter vs The angel from Depeche Mode's Precious single

Scooter, now celebrating their eleventh year of goofy techno cover tunes, has a pretty catchy single in “Hello! (Good To Be Back)”. In fact I though the chanting male chorus wouldn’t be out of place on an album by the twice-as-old Depeche Mode.

But who is really being sampled by Scooter? Read the fine print:

Music and lyrics by Glitter, Leander

Yikes! It’s Gary Glitter!

So be careful. There’s only a thin line of good taste separating “Personal Jesus” from “Rock and Roll Part 2”.
