The Cool Kids Talk ‘Get Right’

In the song ‘Get Right,’ we couldn’t help but hear ‘The Time of the Season,’ the psychedelic 1968 hit. Obviously that was intentional, but how did you both decide to use that rhythmic beat?
Chuck: That was Pharrell. He actually just came in, dropped his book bag down and was like “yo I got this joint” … It’s actually a really crazy story. He had these prototype Beat by Dr. Dre headphones with a microphone on it. So he started working, and I was watching him in the corner, I even got it on camera, just him with the drums just, *knock knock* “Ah!” *knock knock* “Ah!” He didn’t do nothing but “Ah!” baselines to that song …

I didn’t even put two and two together, I didn’t know what he was doing until the song was on the computer and he was like “alright” and then started coming up with the chorus … And then we started playing that song before we come out [on stage], the, what’s the name of the band? The Zombies. Chuck: Zombies, yeah. We start playing that song before we come out then do ‘Get Right.’ But yeah, that was a Pharrell brain child and I think that’s why we went down there and worked with him. I didn’t leave it all up to me. But where I go with stuff sometimes, I would have never thought of that. The ‘Get Right’ and ‘The Summer Jam,’ that’s what I would want but I hadn’t thought of that yet.
