FM

2D appears on a track on a track from Nathan Haines's 2003 album 'Squire For Hire'. Nathan Haines is a relatively-unknown New Zealand born singer-songwriter. You can read more about him on his official site nathanhaines.com .The song 'FM' is a cover of a song by 70's Jazz rock band Steeley Dan, and 2D takes lead vocals on the track. It is not obvious why Damon decided to credit this work to 2D (he did not do this with a lot of post-Gorillaz collaborations, for example his work with Tony Allen and Marianne Faithful), but it is possible that it is because of the fragile falsetto vocal style he employs on the track which sounds like that used on certain Gorillaz tracks.

Lyrics:

Worry the bottle mamma, itís grapefruit wine
Kick off your high heel sneakers, itís party time
Girls donít seem to care whatís on
As long as it plays till dawn
Nothiní but blues and Elvis
And somebody elseís favorite song

Give her some funked up music, she treats you nice
Feed her some hungry reggae, sheíll love you twice
Girls donít seem to care tonight
As long as the mood is right

No static at all
No static at all
No static at all
FM - no static at all

Give her some funked up music she treats you nice
Feed her some hungry reggae sheíll love you twice
Girls donít seem to care tonight
As long as the mood is right

No static at all
No static at all
No static at all
FM - no static at all
