The Prodigy – voodoo people (album: Music for the Jilted Generation 1994)

This next song is by The Prodigy, They are so cool. They have quite a few masterpieces. My first exposure to The Prodigy was when I was on a holiday resort with my friends back when I was a teenager. There was a jukebox in the food court area close to the beach and I remember we kept putting coins to listen to this new and awesome song called out of space by The Prodigy, we were crazy dancing and other teenagers kept joining us. I’ve wasted all my money on the bloody machine and I had no money left for food! good old times that food didn’t really matter.

I’m guessing this song is about Magic People, Voodoo people but I can be wrong hahaha... I hope you like this song as much as I do ;)

Song Background:
The spoken parts ("... the voodoo who do what you don't dare do people...") are taken from "The Shalimar," written and performed by Gylan Kain, one of The Last Poets.
The main riff in the song is based on a sample of the Nirvana song "Very Ape" from their third studio album In Utero. (Wikipedia – Voodoo People)
