Fatboy Slim - Star 69 (2001)

No lyrics needed for this one... - I was never really a fan of Norman Cook, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim - - - until this one came along. Checking out the gay scene of Cape Town, South Africa that year, I remember going out to a packed-to-the-rafters 'Bronx' bar and there it happened: suddenly the DJ starting to fade the iconic '...what the f***' into the preceding track. I was blown away. Gob-smacked. Jaw-dropped. So was pretty much the entire bar and a massive cheer made the round. The same must have happened to most of Brighton Beach when the man himself aired it at a festival session - here the video. Awesome track!
There is also a censored 'clean' version, but - understandably - that one far less poignant...
