Rushing
by Moby

Songfacts®:

  • This is the sixth track on Play and the first one not to be released as a single. Moby told Rolling Stone: "Those first five songs - they're OK. None of those first five songs, which all went on to be fairly successful in some country, I think they're all OK. But "Rushing" is one of my favorite songs on the record. This is why I should never be allowed to be an A&R person. I remember when I was listening to the demos of the album, "Rushing" was the only song I felt confident about. And I really didn't change it much from the demo to the finished version."
