You Thrill Me – A!O’s Ultimix
The song Erotica is without any doubt a Madonna masterpiece. The sexy and seducing lyrics, Shep Pettibone‘s production skills, a mixure of striking samples and her disembodied voice on the chourus, mark the song as an all time favourite.When Madonna was working on the track in 1992, she originally had a completely different approach to the lyrics, and an early version was recorded as “You Thrill Me“.
“Thrill me” had the same spoken parts of Erotica, but different lyrics and melody on the chorus and pre-chorus. Erotica and You Thrill Me, although shared the same beats and part of the same lyrics, show two really different way of dealing with seduction. Madonna‘s character in the song, Dita, is not “in charge” in “You Thrill Me” as she is on “Erotica”, and this concept can be easily seen by comparing the frase “You put ME in a trance” from “You Thrill Me”, to “I’d like to put YOU in a trance” from Erotica.
The remix we report about today is a revised, new version of the original mix produced by Dj A!O few months ago, and it’s the Ultimix Version, which contains parts of both “Twin Mixes“, that were made available through Sp!n Online. This version also contains one of the original sample used on Erotica, the mystical prayer “El Yom” by Fayrouz, and you can also check the “famous lyric sheet” of “You Thrill Me” handwritten by Madonna herself.
You Thrill Me
You are who you are….and I
Wouldn’t want to change a thing…in spite of
All the pain that love can bring…
What can I do? I’m so in love with you.You Thrill Me, surround me, you fill me
You send me, You put me in a trance
You fill me, inside of me, take me
You Thrill Me, You put me in a trance.
