  • Lyrics
  • This song by Italian DJ and electro house music producer Benny Benassi features the voice of Gary Go. It finds the UK pop-electro singer-songwriter comparing his girl to a Hollywood movie. "You are a cinema, I could watch you forever. Action, thriller, I could watch you forever. You are a cinema, a Hollywood treasure," he croons.
  • The song became a hit in clubs worldwide after Los Angeles electro house/dubstep producer Skrillex remixed the track adding some dubstep beats.
  • Benassi has been a leading electro house producer and dance music DJ since the mid 1990s and in 2002 he scored a hit throughout Europe with "International." However, it wasn't until his co-credited collaboration on Chris Brown's 2011 international smash "Beautiful People" that he achieved success chartwise in the US.
  • Skrillex's remix won Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical at the 2012 Grammy Awards. "This is really crazy for me, man," the dubstep king said, on accepting the award. "I made this song in my bedroom when I was living illegally in a warehouse in downtown L.A. I made that song with a blown speaker."
