De La Orgee

Album: 3 Feet High and Rising (1989)
  • This song features De La Soul moaning simulated sex as Barry White's "I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby" single plays in the background. "'De La Orgee' came about because our producer, Prince Paul from Stetasonic, had this Barry White record with Barry moaning all the way through," Posdnuos recalled to Melody Maker. "So the three of us got into the booth and started moaning and then we got everybody else who was hanging around to come in too. It wasn't like we had the title and worked towards that - the title came last."
