Review: Eiffel 65 – Move Your Body (Pop)

This review covers the dance pop track Eiffel 65 – Move Your Body.

This track was released in 1999 on the album Europop. We previously reviewed the track Blue (Da Ba Dee) and that track got a very solid score. So, we thought it would be interesting to try another track from that album.

The track starts off with a synth effect. A kick pops up before a synth melody and vocals come in. This is backed by a subtle pad. The synths drop back a bit as the vocals continue with parts of the main chorus.

From there, the vocals continue with a more full version of the main chorus. In this section, the vocals are backed by the piano and a more full drum kit. This section is capped off with a secondary synth melody. It ends with a synth effect.

After that, the synths drop back and the vocals start in with a verse. A synth is added in this section. From there, the vocals lead the track into the main chorus. The vocals also have backup vocals. This section is capped off with the secondary synth melody.

The vocals then go through the main chorus again only with some filtering added. After a synth effect, the vocals go through the first verse again. Again, this is backed by a synth. From there, the vocals take the track back into the main chorus. A synth string joins the vocals part way through. Once again, this section is capped off with a secondary synth melody.

From there, the track drops off and the vocals go through the main chorus. The track is then lead out by a synth effect and a synth string.

One thing that works very well for this track is the large variety of synths backing the vocals. There are multiple melodies and a nice variety of different synths flowing throughout. Those synths also give this track a nice flow. They can be subtle and prominent depending on where you are in the track.

Probably the only weakness in this track is the lyrics. Those lyrics are very repetitive throughout. Arguably, the synths that back the vocals (not to mention the filtering at one point) really save this track. Despite the repetitive vocals, this track is very catchy because of those synths.

Overall, this is a very solid track. This is thanks to the huge variety of synths flowing throughout the track. They do an impressive job at muting the huge weakness of repetitive lyrics. It’s catchy and winds up being a very solid track anyway.
