    General Commentsoryr mate,thats wrong. but a good idea nonetheless. its actually sampled from a 1970s public awareness film called Charley Says which was about a boy and his cat teaching kids right and wrong things. like stay away from strangers etc.

    General Comment'Go off somewhere' has always seemed to me to by refering to a trip. For example, taking acid and seeing the world in a different way. The user is going off to that acid altered other place.

    The 'tell your mother' bit always strikes up images in my head of kiddies raving the night away whilst mum and dad sit at home reading the paper and watching tv.

    General CommentI already knew that. I think the prodigy sampled those lines because in a rave and drugs context they can have the meaning I've suggested. They wouldn't have just sampled it for the sake of it, I think they saw that they could create a great piece of irony by using it in one of their songs. I think it's a genius sample, because coming from a government awearness ad it's a total piss take.

    General CommentI don't know much about these things...but isn't Charly also a term of drug slang?

    The "meows" that are sampled in this track are provided by late British radio DJ/comedian Kenny Everett!

    General CommentIt's a bit of both, Charly refers to both cocaine and the public awareness advert, its a good tune none the less but the trip into drum and bass version is better

    General CommentIt's definitely a song about drugs, notably the drug addled clubbing culture when this song was written. "meow meow" which is repeated throughout the song is a common street name for mephedrone, and I think "go off somewhere" is a reference to taking a trip.
