The song is sung by Billy Elliot in the stage production at his audition for a place at The Royal Ballet School in London. Billy is asked "What does it feel like, when you are dancing?" by one of the panel. Billy responds, hesitantly at first, "I really can't explain it... I haven't got the words..." And then (see full lyrics) the music takes hold, and he goes into an energetic song. Describes dancing as "Something that you can't control". After two verses, each with a chorus, Billy leaps into a frenetic dance; in this dance many skills such as acrobatics are used (the rhythm for this section of the instrumental varies from Billy to Billy, depending on each actor's dance strengths). The number concludes with another verse and Billy doing several pirouettes or tumbles.
The most notable lyric in this piece is that of the title: 'Electricity sparks inside of me and I'm free, I'm free!" It was inspired by the scene in the film, which it follows closely, in which Billy describing dancing as "Electricity". His passion, shown in his description, is the implied reason for Billy's acceptance into The Royal Ballet School.
The band re-emerged with this successful electronic tune after two years away from the public. For the first time, synthesizers are used as a primary part of a song, working in parallel with the distorted guitar as opposed to just providing backgrounds. The single helped guide the band's new direction, as evident in the fact that electronics was also heavily used in Head Music.
"Electricity" is produced by Steve Osborne, "Popstar" and "See That Girl" are produced by Ben Hillier while "Waterloo" is produced by Bruce Lampcov.
The video for the title song was directed by Mike Lipscombe, and is one of the band's few big budget videos.
Reviews to the highly awaited single were mixed. The Mirror rated it 9 out of 10, writing: "Open the windows, whack this on full blast and watch the sparks fly. Rock is in this summer." However, the Daily Record wrote: "Loyal Suede fans have put Brett Anderson's band back in the Top 10, but "Electricity" lacks the energy of previous hits."
The plot centres around ambitious independent politician Henry Trebell, his plans for a bill to disestablish the Church of England and his fall from grace and suicide after his affair with married woman Amy O'Connell, who dies after a botched abortion. The title may refer to the waste of his potential talents due to the scandal, the loss of the disestablishment bill and the termination of Amy's pregnancy.
In 2003, less than 24 hours after its release, WASTE was removed from distribution by AOL, Nullsoft's parent company. The original page was replaced with a statement claiming that the posting of the software was unauthorized and that no lawful rights to it were held by anyone who had downloaded it, in spite of the original claim that the software was released under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
Several developers have modified and upgraded the WASTE client and protocol. The SourceForge edition is considered by many to be the official development branch, but there are several forks.
WASTE is a decentralized chat, instant messaging and file sharing program and protocol. It behaves similarly to a virtual private network by connecting to a group of trusted computers, as determined by the users. This kind of network is commonly referred to as a darknet. It uses strong encryption to ensure that third parties cannot decipher the messages being transferred. The same encryption is used to transmit and receive instant messages, chat, and files, maintain the connection, and browse and search.
