Thoughts on Songs with Fatboy Slim

How much I dare myself to approach this with a basic stable mental state and get a meaning out of it.... Not happening. There are some songs, in specific genres, that need to lyrics with a deep meaning, they just need to be nihilistic cues that punches the crap out of every questionmark they may raise, in the same time.
