Cowgirl by Underworld

Summary

"Cowgirl" is a song recorded by Underworld, originally released as a single in 1994. The track is from the band's 1993 album dubnobasswithmyheadman.

In Underworld's live performances, "Cowgirl" is often played with "Rez", as they share key elements and samples. The typical arrangement is to open with "Rez" and transition to "Cowgirl", with the "Rez" melody usually brought back at the climax. The track is usually labelled "Rez / Cowgirl" in fan-distributed bootlegs. This combination also appears on the live album Everything, Everything. Slant Magazine ranked the song #27 in its 100 Greatest Dance Songs list, adding: "The jewel in the Orwellian dubnobasswithmyheadman's crown was "Cowgirl"--everything, everything Underworld's thundering electronica has come to represent as a musical and political force."

A key lyrical element in the song is Karl Hyde's repeated chant "Everything, everything."
