19-2000 (Soulchild Remix)

19-2000 (Soulchild Remix) is a track featured on the 2001 single 19-2000 and subsequently as the 1st track of the 2002 Gorillaz compilation album G-Sides. It is significantly faster than the original mix and became the best-known version of the song, receiving the greatest share of airplay in the UK and Europe. A version of the 19-2000 video was issued using the remix as its soundtrack.

Alongside the radio mix of "Danger - High Voltage!" by Electric Six, this remains one of the best-known remixes by the partnership of Stuart Bradbury and Damien Mendis, who had only recently teamed up as Soulchild having worked separately as remix artists for several years.

Lyrics

It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
Body Movin'
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose

The world is spinning too fast
I'm buyin' 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

They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
Here you go!

Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoe shine!
(Na na na na na na)
Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoe shine!
(Na na na na na na)
Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoe shine!
(Na na na na na na)
Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoeshine!
(Na na na na na na)

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 a limitation
Then we got nothing to lose
Please repeat the message
It's the music that we choose

They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)
They do the bump
(It's the music that we choose)

Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoeshine!
(Na na na na na na)
Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoeshine!
(Na na na na na na)
Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoeshine!
(Na na na na na na)
Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoeshine!
(Na na na na na na)

They do the bump
They do the bump
They do the bump
They do the bump
They do the bump
They do the bump
They do the bump
They do the bump

It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
It's the music that we choose
Ok bring it down y'all we're gonna break out

Get the cool!
(Na na na na na na na)
Get the cool shoeshine!
(Na na na na na na)
(repeat until fade)
