19-2000 was the second Gorillaz single release. A marked departure from their previous rap-driven hit, this was, in its Soulchild Remix incarnation (the only version to get major radio airplay in the UK and Europe) three ecastatic minutes of pure pop. Whilst not as big a hit as "Clint Eastwood", the single charted well in the UK and sold consistently for weeks. B-sides "Left Hand Suzuki Method" and "Hip Albatross" showed the more experimental and less immediate side to Gorillaz. Overall this single sustained the momentum that "Clint Eastwood" had built up, leading to the reissue of the debut LP in mainland Europe, the UK and Asia to include what had become the de facto 'single version' of the song.

Lyrics

The world is spinning too fast
I'm buying lead Nike shoes
To keep myself tethered to the days I tried to lose
My mama said to slow down
You must make your own shoes
Stop dancing to the music of Gorillaz in a happy mood
Keepin' my groove on

Here you go!
Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine

There's a monkey in the jungle watching a vapour trail
Caught up in the conflict between his brain and his tail
And if time's elimination, then we've got nothing to lose
Please repeat the message, it's the music that we choose
Keepin' my groove on

Okay, bring it down, yeah, we'll come back out

Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine
Get the cool
Get the cool shoeshine
