"Get Down, Make Love (Queen cover)" as written by and Freddie Mercury....
Get down, make love
Get down, make love
You take my body
I give you heat
You say you hungry
I give you meat
I suck your mind
You blow my head
Make love - (make love)
Inside your bed - everybody get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love

Every time I get hot
You wanna cool down
Every time I get high
You say you wanna come down
You say it's enough
In fact it's too much
Every time I get a - get down, get down
Get down, make love

Oh, sss, hah

I can squeeze - you can shake me (get down, make love)
I can feel - when you break me (get down, make love)
Come on so heavy - when you take me (get down, make love)
You can make love, you can make love, you can make love, you can make love
(Get down, make love)
You can make everybody get down, make love
Get down, make love

Every time I get high
You wanna come down
Every time I get hot
You say you wanna cool down
You say it's enough
In fact it's too much
Every time I wanna, get down
Get down, get down

Aah, ooh, make love, make love, make love, make love, make love
Aah, oh

Get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love

Every time I get hot
You wanna cool down
Every time I get high
You say you wanna come down
You say it's enough
In fact it's just too much
Every time I wanna, get down
Get down, get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love

    General CommentWell, I love NIN...but this cover isn't all too great. Tolerable, yes...but not something I get all excited about when I hear it.

    General Commenti have to admit i do enjoy listening to this song even with the lady having an orgam in the back round the song is just too damn catchy and i can't really despise anything by nin except for some of the songs on with teeth which almost made me cry when the cd came out but i still argue it is better then most of the stupid pointless shit that is out there.

    General CommentThis was alful, how could something which included Trent Reznor and Al Jourgensen, be so ......crap. A song with a sample of a woman getting getting an orgasm ruins it (althought it is a nice idea......). It ruins the orignal version.

    General Comment"The early years of Nine Inch Nails were pretty awful for Trent Reznor. After the first album, Pretty Hate Machine, was released, Trent found himself in an ugly legal battle with his record label-a battle that kept him and his band and his music out of circulation for a number of years.

    The last thing Trent released before things went to hell was an single called Sin. If you know Trent and his records, you'll recognize this as "halo 4".

    It featured three different versions of a song called "Sin" (which appeared on Pretty Hate Machine). These recordings took up tracks one, two and four. Sandwiched in there at track number three was Trent's version on an old song done by Queen back in the 70s. Over the years, it had become something of a show-stopper whenever Nine Inch Nails played live.

    9 Great B-Sides -- Trent ReznorThe track featured some rather disturbing-sounding samples. The spoken word bit by the guy is apparently from an old cable access show called Video Psychotherapy. And the woman is taken from a Japanese porn video from a collection owned by Al Jourgensen of Ministry. He was the guy who insisted on using them. He helped Trent produce that part of the single."

    -Taken from Alan Cross of New Rock Edge 102.1 in Toronto.

    General CommentI like the original more, but this version is awesome, he really captures Freddie's Sexual Aggresiveness on this track. and the begginning is awesome.
