Play "Shut Up And Dance" by WALK THE MOON on any electric guitar or bass. This song includes a new Authentic Tone. It's that familiarity that makes them so disturbing, and “Shut Up and Dance” upset me more than any other Black Mirror episode to date. "Shut Up and Dance," the surprise hit that Petricca calls a "dork anthem," was inspired by a night out at the Funky Sole throwback dance night in.
'Shut Up and Dance' with Walk the Moon at Olympia date - babae.us
He didn't expect to be at a place like this, added to the fact that large crowds made him uneasy. He looked at Judy and saw the disappointment on her face, and instantly felt bad. Judy, I'm sorry ok? Instead, he grabbed her paw, and redundantly took her to where the other dancers were.
His ears flattened as he got nervous being around so many animals, but he looked at Judy and saw how happy she was so it made him feel better. Not much, but a little.
Judy hushed him as they made it in the room. Since the place was old, they still used coal to heat up the building. The storage room was full of food, water heater, fireplace, and electric box to control all the lighting.
As he looked around, he also noticed Ben at the snack table getting a plateful of sweets, soon more and more members of the department were there. Nick on the other paw, had a smile creeping on his face. These are the boring parties you were talking about? Now's not the time. Why do we have to hide again? They can't see me out there with you! His smile, and confidence, all gone. Was she that embarrassed to have others think that they were on a date?
Was she embarrassed to be with him? All Nick wanted to do was walk out and go home. But, Judy was still his friend. And despite everything, he wanted to help her out. He looked around the room they were in. They both knew that they couldn't just walk out together without at least one mammal from the department seeing them. Nick's red fur and Judy, in general, were easy to spot, unless… Nick looked at the bags of flour, and coal.
The fox just nodded his head at both bags. If we go out there, we will stick out like a sore thumb. Nick set both bags down and walked over to the fireplace, where there were mounds and piles of the dark gray soot. He looked back at Judy, hoping that she would change her mind, but instead she was already taking the flour behind a shelf alley so that she wouldn't be seen. Nick could feel the emotion of melancholy taking over him. With that, he started to strip down to his boxers and began to cover himself with the black-grey powder.
It wasn't as easy as he thought, first he tried to scoop the stuff and pat it into his fur, but his coat was so long it really didn't do much to cover up the red tent. Add the fact that it made dust everywhere making it hard to breathe. So instead, he just decided it was best if he just rolled around the stuff and hope that he looked dark enough to look like a black fox, rather than a dirty red one. As he gave himself a look as best as he could, he started to put his white T-shirt back on, only to make it smeared with black coal smudges.
Luckily he brought with his black jacket, as Judy pulled him into hiding. After getting his pants on, he zipped up the coat, in hope that no one could tell that he even had a white shirt on. Can't be much worse than me.
Ear to toe, she was nothing more than the color white. Added her already white dress, she looked like a ghost. Both of them had the same problem happening. Every movement that made had a dust of black or white around them. As long as we don't draw attention to ourselves, and just head straight to the exit, we should be fine.
Judy nodded her head slowly. Nick and Judy gracefully, glided their way around the other mammals, careful not to be seen by any of the other officers. Right when Nick was about to make a quick dash for the door, he felt something tug his arm. Panicked, he thought it was someone from the department. Nick played along of course-not that he had much of a choice, to begin with. I thought you didn't want anyone to notice us. We almost made it to the exit! Because being seen with me is a bad thing right.
Why are you so upset? And then be brought back in reverse of the move the just did.
As they became close, Nick, turned her so that her back was in front of him. He placed both paws over her hips, as she crossed her left arm over her body to meet on her right side, and placed her paw over his. Her right was holding her left shoulder.
Nick started to sway his hips side to side, as Judy followed in suit. Maybe because my best friend is ashamed to be seen with me in public, off duty. Her jaw dropped, as her eyes widened and eyebrows scrunched.
At this point both of the mammals were dancing on pure rage. I know you don't like dancing ok. I thought it was a diner. You're the one who is in embarrassed with yourself. He let his arms and head fall, eyes closed with despair all over his face.
He just stood there. Judy looked at him, with concern. All that mattered was here and now. They still bring up the bad ones…" Nick never talked about his parents before. Judy didn't want to push him anymore. He was already having a hard time. Instead, she took Nick's arm and pulled him to a different spot on the dance floor. Nick looked down at her confused, he didn't know what was happening.
Just keep your eyes on me. Judy started to step back and forth, while Nick slowly followed. Everything started out slow, but soon enough, their dances became more fast paced and wild. They both were just doing random stuff, whatever just felt right. Soon Nick grabbed Judy's arms, as she laid hers over his, and they started to spin in fast circles, equally pulling in each other's weight.
Soon they were going so fast, that Judy was lifted off from the ground and into the air. Nick took this advantage and swung her even faster.
So instead of her being directly in front of him, he pulled her to his side, as he kept spinning. Judy noticed this and curved her body.
Soon, Nick slowed down, and gravity caught ahold of Judy, gently placing her back to the ground. Nick kept spinning, but slowly make his circle wider. Judy was graceful, gliding across the dance floor. Other dancers took notice of this and stopped dancing. Some just to watch, others so that they would not get bumped or be in the way.
Nick, still going the same direction; he stopped and lifted his leg up, so when she slid, she went right under him. But, before she was completely under, Nick pulled her back to him with her arms until she was placed back on her feet. Unfortunately, … They were so focused on each other.
They didn't notice all the mess they were making… Dust of black, white and a mixer of gray was puffing off of them.
What made things worse, it made others cough, and it started to stick on others clothes as well. And you bet that every mammal was watching them; confusion, anger, disgust, or just enjoyment was over their faces. Nick and Judy's fur was starting to show their original color again, some parts were just faded, while other places were splotchy.
Nick lifted Judy in the air when "I'm glad you are feeling better Hopps. Nick and Judy froze. Both looking at the water buffalo. Nick quickly placed Judy down, as they both straighten themselves out, to look more presentable in front of their boss. Bogo crossed his arms and waited for an answer.
Date Night: Shut-Up And Dance With Me, a zootopia fanfic | FanFiction
She was still ashamed of him… "Judy? I thought you were sick. Are you feeling better? Why are you in white powder-wait.Shut Up And Dance - Happy Sad Songs
So you two are on a date! Why did you say you two weren't-" "Clawhauser! He looked back at Judy for her to continue. Nick felt even worst. She really was embarrassed to hang out with him outside of work. He couldn't take anymore.
He then started to walk out. But he didn't look back. He just kept walking. She didn't know what to do. She didn't even know why he was still upset. Lied…" she closed her eyes. Hearing that, made Nick stop. It's not even a party. I just wanted to have some fun. I told you to say you had something better to do! How is being sick, something bette-" "Hopps. They are meant to just get out of the house. An excuse if you will. For most mammals, it's just to have a break from family, and have time to themselves.
I just come for the donuts. Who just come for the donuts. She didn't know what to say. I think, it would be best if the both of you just go home, and wash away your As they left to go to the car, they kept getting glances from other mammals, as they could see all the dust that was coming off their bodies. Once they were outside they started to dust themselves while still keeping the same pace. Just to make things clear. You're not afraid to be seen with me off duty in public? It was just a big misunderstanding!
That is a relief! Judy just stared at him, but then she busted out laughing, which made Nick join in too. Soon both of them were laughing so hard, they were having trouble breathing, and looking at each other's faces made them laugh even harder.
Ok… why don't I take you to my spot now. Judy started it up and then they were on their way to the rain forest district. Nick told her where to go; it was at a peaceful waterfall pool. It was completely dark, but there was light coming from mushrooms all around them. It glowed a light, electricity blue. They both got out, and Nick started to undressed but stopped when he saw Judy acting awkward. Nick was respectful enough to turn away, but in the corner of his eye, he could see Judy taking off her dress.
Uncontrollably, his heart started to beat faster than normal. He also realized that he completely stopped what he was doing, as he was so focused on Judy. Shaking his head from any bad thoughts, he continued to strip down. Judy went to an edge, preferably a large flat rock, and took a long look. Why are we the only ones here anyway? I just think this is… odd.
I've been in this pool plenty of times ok. It's late, that's probably why it's not filled with other mammals. And be glad it isn't" Nick had his tail stuck, trying to get it through the hole, and it nearly had him stumble backward. Judy wasn't convinced, it was beautiful where they were, but something was telling her that something wasn't right. Nick on the other paw, had something else on his mind… and thoughts that he couldn't control. Nick finally in his boxers, looked at the bunny.
Still white from the flour. He looked back at his coal body and then had an idea. He looked around and saw a vine close to the water. As fast as he could, he raced to the vine, and reached out and grabbed it. He then swung past Judy, who was surprised by this. When he saw that he was directly over the water, he let go.
Making a splash and a flop. Judy looked at the water. After 15 seconds she started to get worried. He hasn't come back up for air. Panicked she bent down to see if she could make out any sign of him, in the water. As she had her head low, Nick burst out of the water and grabbed her by the neck, and pulled her into the deep water below.
Making her front flip in. She gasped as she made it back to the surface. Nick just started laughing. But stopped as he got a mouth full of water. He looked at Judy who had a smile on her face, as she finished splashing him. Both of them were laughing and giggling and gasping for air.
Finally, they got so close, Nick's muzzle almost touched her face. They stopped as they both looked at each other. They have never been able to get this close to each other's "height" before. Being able to stare "face to face". Judy blinked, getting out of the hypnotic state. Only to turn away; Nick cleared his throat as he too looked the other direction.
The fox looked around and saw a lava rock, close to shore. It was a deep blood red, with holes, making it look almost like a sponge. He swam, and grabbed a couple. Nick really didn't have to worry too bad with his fur, as most of his stuff was already washed out. I'll scrub your back for you.
You're not going to be able to get everything for yourself. Think of it as…" Nick chuckled, "I got your back? Nick made slow, general circles on her back, to make sure he got everything. Both not saying a word. The only noise that could be heard was the waterfall behind them, and the sloshing noises from them moving around the water. Nick studied her, as water droplets moved down her body.
Her short gray fur, shimmered as the blue light surrounding them. As he watched every detail, his washing stopped. So we were British rappers, but our rap was different, our music was fast. We sped up a lot of beats because we were dancers as well. We were well into the hip-hop side of everything—break dancing, body popping. So when, we started to rap, our music was fast. We were sending around this demo tape, trying to get signed as a U.
We were just being rejected left, right, and center. Looking back now it's because our music was totally different to what was happening. This wasand no one did that themselves. They all signed to a big record company. Back then we knew nothing about distribution, we knew nothing about what actually being a record company was.
We were just determined to get our music out there. That was the one thing that was driving us. Do you want this tune? I'm Smiley, the other half of Shut Up and Dance. The label was starting to blow up, so we decided that we had to sign other people to the label. It can't just be me and PJ putting out our own music. Or we thought we were! But it was always a dancey vibe, not this slow thing. Our music had lots of reggae b-lines [bass lines] in it, so we thought that for the act that we signed, we needed to get a reggae vibe in it, a reggae act basically, and put them on our beats.
And we did it, and who signed was the Ragga Twins. They used to be on a sound system called Unity, and we sampled an intro from what they said at a sound clash. All 50 of them! Like literally 50… In my bedroom! That was how the label was set up.
How did they have an entourage? Had they already been releasing records? They were just big in the sound system world. They were basically ghetto superstars.
They had a big sound system. They were like number one though, at the time. What we are doing with you is a total experiment.
No one has ever done this before; this is something totally new that we want to try. A lot of people now give us credit. Because back then, with all the elements that we did: Now everyone says that was basically the birth of drum and bass, jungle, whatever you want to call it.
And then obviously from that, dubstep appeared. How did you first get into hip-hop? In it from day one. Plus, back then, as a kid growing up, you just followed what America was doing. You eat, sleep, and breathe America.
Plus, I was lucky because my mum… My mum left us as kids. She went to New York, so we had a little bit of contact. I waswhen I was in New York, back and forth.
I begged my mom for the money and I found my ass there. I was only So we was in hip-hop from the beginning. Were you doing hip-hop dancing? We thought we were in the film Breakdance! What the Americans were doing, we lived that. Back in school days—we both went to the same secondary school—at lunch time, there would be body popping competitions.
And we were there, giving it all… Smiley: We just did what the Americans did. Well obviously some people did but, we were too busy being in love with the music. Were there other people trying to make hip-hop like you did?
There was a big movement in this country. This country was hip-hop fanatics! It was like the pop music of the day, for kids. It was the youth culture. No ifs or buts. You knew every lyric of every rapper, you knew everything. So what year was this?
Shut Up and Dance
This is throughout all of the '80s. So did you play hip-hop out? Back in the day, in addition to starting a label, running alongside that, we had our own sound system. Whilst all these other things were going on, the U. So if you were anyone, or you thought you was, you had a sound system. So we had a sound system! Still have one to this day, a good sound system. His brother is a sparks, an electrician. And up to this day we still have a sound system.
Just to get the sound out. What's the name of your sound? Go look it up online. So when you were rapping, you already had the sound. Because we were just kids, with no money, no nothing. And we built a sound system. When we was about 15 or 16 we played at our school, at our school prom, like a proper sound system. So when we got up to about 18, we thought, Right, we gotta get the sound on the road. My brother was training to be an electrician, and I was trying to be a carpenter, making our speaker boxes better.
And we started breaking into empty houses, and putting on blueses, dances. We started small, like three rooms, and then you get bigger and bigger.
And that's what we did from the age of about 16, we did it for about three years. So we had this unique sound system. Where most sound systems would play just reggae music, with reggae MCs chatting, or just soul music, we did everything, hip-hop, cutting up Peter Piper, cutting up reggae records, Super Cat, playing rare groove funky stuff, playing James Brown… And we were only 16 or 17, and no one was doing this, no one.
Not in a hip-hop style. Of course it was! There was no one like us. No one like us. People used to come and fight around the decks, just to see what was going on.
We had mic stands, we were all rapping. And this is on all night, All night. It would start about 11 or 12, and go until about 7 a. Because we had that in us. Remember we had to entertain the kids of Hackney. Because only year-olds were coming. Because we were kids. So only kids would come, and we would have a a big house—packed.
Room to room packed, and this is what was going on. You had dancehall, hip-hop, rare groove. Nobody was cutting up dancehall.
Cutting it up on two decks. And this was in the '80s! Live, while we were rapping on top. Cutting it up in front of your face… You said that you just kind of started your own label…but why? We were forced into it.
So you were shopping the music around in the U.
