This brooding nine minute epic is the opening track from dance punk band LCD Soundsystem's third studio album, This Is Happening. LCD leader James Murphy croons amidst sparse percussion, before a synth pulse kicks in around the four-minute mark. Murphy told The Sun April 30, 2010: "The track is two different kinds of songs. Literally, they're part one and part two, but I didn't want to do that because it's pretentious."
Murphy told The NME May 18, 2010: "This is the song I lost my voice trying to do. It's the highest song register I've sung... I'd vowed never to write anything that high for myself. But then I got excited about a synth sound and forgot all about my vocal range, and had to sing it with a voice that was blown out, but I took lots of steroids."
This featured on the December 11, 2015 episode of Amazon's original series Transparent.
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
