Le Freak Lyrics


(Chorus)
Aaahh Freak out!
Le Freak, see'est Chic
Freak out!
Aaahh Freak out!
Le Freak, see'est Chic
Freak out!
Aaahh Freak out!
Le Freak, see'est Chic
Freak out!
Aaahh Freak out!
Le Freak, see'est Chic
Freak out!

Have you heard about the new dance craze?
Listen to us, I'm sure you'll be amazed
Big fun to be had by everyone
It's up to you, It surely can be done
Young and old are doing it, I'm told
Just one try, and you too will be sold
It's called Le Freak! They're doing it night and day
Allow us, we'll show you the way

[Chorus]

All that pressure got you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, check the ride
Come on along and have a real good time
Like the days of stopping at the Savoy
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to fifty four
Find a spot out on the floor

[Chorus]

Now Freak!
I said Freak!
Now Freak!

All that pressure got you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, check the ride
Come on along and have a real good time
Like the days of stopping at the Savoy
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to fifty four
Find a spot out on the floor

[Chorus]

Le Freak
  • Chic was a group led by bass player Bernard Edwards and guitarist Nile Rodgers. Both were very successful writers and producers, combining to work on hits for Sister Sledge and Diana Ross. Edwards went on to produce for The Power Station, Joe Cocker, and Robert Palmer, while Rodgers has worked with Mick Jagger, David Bowie, and Madonna. Edwards died of pneumonia in 1996.
  • Rodgers and Edwards wrote this after they were denied admission to a nightclub, even though their song "Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)" often played inside.

    It was New Year's Eve, 1977, and they were invited to Studio 54, a very popular club in New York City where many celebrities and trendsetters were known to hang out. A singer named Grace Jones wanted Rodgers and Edwards to do some production work for her, and asked them to come down to the club as her guest. When they got there, they were not on the list, and couldn't convince the doorman that they were the group Chic. All dressed up and nowhere to go on New Year's Eve, they left and started writing this song as a reply to the doorman. They called it "F--k Off," but when they decided to record it, Edwards wasn't comfortable with the cursing, so they tried it as "Freak Off." That title sounded lame, but when they made the opening lines "aaaahh Freak Out!" instead of "aaaahh F--k Off!", they came up with a better title: "La Freak."

    They ended up not working for Grace Jones, although Rodgers produced her comeback album in 1986.
  • Studio 54 is mentioned in the last verse: "Come on down to 54." A year after Rodgers and Edwards couldn't get into the club, this was included on an album of dance songs called A Night At Studio 54. They had no trouble getting in at this point.
  • This was #1 in the US for six weeks. After a while, they stopped distributing it as a single to encourage people to buy the album.
  • "C'est Chic" (which was not just the name of the album but also part of the lyrics to the song) is French for "It is Chic." (thanks, Jerro - New Alexandria, PA)
  • This is the best selling single of all time for Atlantic Records with 13 million sales, including 2 million in the USA.
  • This was the first single to be displaced from the US # 1 twice, each time regaining the top position. It first hit the top spot in December 1978, then dropped to #2 for a week to make way for "You Don't Bring Me Flowers." After reassuming the #1 position for a second week, it then dropped to #2 again for two more weeks, this time to make way for the Bee Gees' hit "Too Much Heaven." In January 1979, "Le Freak" then moved back into the #1 spot for a third time, holding down the top spot for four more weeks.
  • This song returned, remixed, to the UK Top 20 in 1987 as "Jack le Freak."
  • Nile Rodgers told Billboard that the song "was our homage to a Chubby Checker song called the 'Peppermint Twist.'"
