"Girls' Night Out" as written by Karin Elizabeth Dreijer Andersson and Olof Bjorn Dreijer....
We were looking for a room We were looking for a hotel We were in between We were a few chosen Somewhere to fit in Something that's fitting After one day it started itching And we rubbed until it was bleeding And we laughed At the moonlight far beyond And we ran through The moonlight far beyond We were looking for something to blow up We were looking for someone to follow We were had one way out We were some hours left We were so close We knew we were chosen We aimed for high speed And for someone who could catch me

    General Commentthis song relates to me 2 years ago.
    me and my friends were wild drunken, stoned teenage girls and basically this song just reminds me of those weekend nights under the night sky.

    General CommentReminds me of a night out on ecstasy/speed. They feel 'chosen' and aim 'for high speed'.

    Gets me in a dancing mood too- also driving fast to this... OMG.

    General CommentThe song is called "Girl's Night Out"

    "after one day it started itching
    and we rubbed until it was bleeding "

    references to the moonlight

    The Knife sound like witches anyways.

    That's what I love, it's a total 'carpe diem' type track that brings in vibes of animalistic paganism, infused with techno-funk-wildness that you can shake too, whilst talking about the sacred bonds of women with the moon. I think it's safe to say that there is no other musical entity out there quite like the Knife.

    General CommentI can actually see the pagan feeling that someone else mentioned on here, moonlight and all. Maybe that's hearkening back to the idea of a witch's coven when they would gather in the moonlight ("and we laughed at the moonlight"). Could also be referring to the heathenesque/pagan idea of releasing all inhibitions and self-control to have fun at night.

    I mainly think of this as a night gone wrong.
    The beginning part reminds me of an ambulance or emergency siren of some type.

    The lyrics sound like the description of one of the "girls" to an emergency responder of what happened as she is in panic over one of her friends' injury of some sort. People panic and don't speak clearly, but you can' make out what they're trying to say:
    "We were looking for a room
    we were looking for a hotel
    we were in between
    we were a few chosen
    somewhere to fit in
    something that's fitting
    after one day it started itching
    and we rubbed until it was bleeding " etc.

    I like the line "we were a few chosen". I hang out with teenage girls and they do think they're somehow "chosen" or something really elite and special. I also really like "somewhere to fit in". It gives the slight anxious feeling in the song that maybe not all of the girls or any of them wanted to be doing what they were doing (getting STDs etc.) but they just wanted to fit in. It's the unspoken mantra of every teenager. Add that with the voices in the background chanting (out...night out....)and it's buckets of peer pressure!

    General CommentPlease, I search for a cover The Knife did. I dont remember the title at all, but I know that they did a cover, pitched down the voice and made it darker. What song was that? Anyone who knows?
