|This is the song that bought the flapping talents of our Manchester girls to the public eye. With their willingness to be as bawdy as the most bawdy of pirates, Cleopatra made their mark on a tired world of premeditated pop. As part of the publicity for this single, the girls learned how to fly big aeroplanes, air-dropped copies of their single over war-torn Bosnia. "You can't fight when you're dancing", reasoned Cleo, "and if you don't dance to our Theme, then you must be really grumpy!" The first Discotheque opened in Bosnia soon after.|

|Cover version of the Jackson 5's hit. People said it sounded exactly the same, but we did a very important experiment. We played both versions at the same time, each version through a different speaker at the local discotheque.

believe our sound goes straight to the street, and we don't need no
journalists validating what we do. But the guy who wrote this, yeah?
He'd better watch his back. Cleopatra is everywhere.
is where we explain to our old friends that we're not having such a
good time, so that when the inevitable descent into obscurity occurs,
they won't hate us too much, and pull our hair, screaming "how
do you like that, pop star? hunh? how do you like THAT?"
We know what it's like to not be famous - we weren't born surrounded by a screaming crowd! Well, we were - but they were just other babies, and that don't count!
