New Pornographers, The - Dancehall Domine Lyrics




They love you with the lights on
Repeat it, recite it
Whenever you feel gentle
Whenever you'll be knighted
Some will have to brave the line
But they're letting you right in

They love you with the lights on
Turn them on but don't bother
Never been so loved
But you're handling it well, lover
Just like every idea
Wants to be like no other

What we call the dancehall domine
Embedded, indebted, don't let it
No never let it be said
We call the dancehall domine
You're covered in credits
Don't let it, no never let it be said
I've got, got the floor
Now I've got, got the floor
In the heart, in the heart, in the heart, in the heart

They love you with the lights on
Defeated, delighted
Never say the right thing
So keep it exciting
You don't have to brave the line
No they're letting you right in

What we call the dancehall domine
Embedded, indebted, don't let it
No never let it be said
We call the dancehall domine
You're covered in credits
Don't let it, no never let it be said
I've got, got the floor
Now I've got, got the floor
In the heart, in the heart, in the heart, in the heart

What we call the dancehall domine
Embedded, indebted, don't let it
No never let it be said
We call the dancehall domine
You're covered in credits, don't let it
No never let it be said
I've got, got the floor
Now I've got, got the floor
Now I've got, got the floor
Now I've got, got the floor
In the heart, in the heart, in the heart, in the heart

    Lovely song and great video!

  15. Garrett Johnson

    This could very well be the greatest pop song ever written.

  16. gabe_liu

    speechlessssss~! XD

  17. Christos Polydorou

    this has more energy packed in its punch than ten pieces of crap thrown in our faces from mass media's bacteria.

  18. tartan rocker

    good sound....almost a throwback to the 80's, which is not a bad thing!!!

  19. LinuxGuru RHEL Pereira

    my fave song....love it😘

  20. LinuxGuru RHEL Pereira

    awesome song...love The New Pornographers♥

  21. bernie manzoli

    neko is so awesome!

  22. San Dan

    The New Pornographers sound like sunshine.

  23. Minatore Band

    Thank you Nina Gordon from Veruca Salt for recommending this band!! :D Its really cool ! :D

  24. Max Hammer

    I liked the riff better when it was in we got the beat,gogos

  25. Gary Gramm

    So annoying... a song that gets better with each listening, and a video that gets worse with each viewing.

    Dermot Hunt

    This is the best NP video. It's not even close.

    Gary Gramm

    Look, it has its moments... it just needs more Kathryn and Carl, and fewer pretentious models. As for best NP video, what about Crash Years? Simple, memorable, beautiful!

  26. rob mcfee

    Outrageously brilliant video! These folks are geniuses !!

  27. OnIoN4UrTrUbLeS

    That evil back stabbing asian bitch!!! lol if japanese so sexy!

  28. Sal Puma

    the girl reminds me of Mary Hansen

  29. Fragotron McFarland

    I can't fucking stand the guy @ 0:38, Get The Fuck Out Of This Vid!!!!

    D. McBride

    To each his own, of course, but I find his Alfred Hitchcock meets Anthony Hopkins vibe the most compelling thing about the video.

    Fragotron McFarland

    @D. McBride I just look the other way now. It was a little dramatic of me to react like I did, but the hot chicks beat him soundly in that department.

  30. Teugeus

    Awesome !!

  31. Andrew B

    Great song but the vid is a bit busy. Still thumbs up.

  32. Andrew Cooke

    Cool track, Kathryn rocks....

  33. Brntilky

    Pretty sure I heard Neko Case's voice but she wasn't in the video.

    Greg biker

    So, that's not Neko doing what looks like a duet with AC ?

    dtuba

    @Greg biker Nope, Kathryn Calder.

    Greg biker

    @dtuba Thank you !!!

  34. ADKforever

    ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!!!

  35. Roger Baker

    is that Neko?

  36. creeirwin

    I actually like their music, and this is coming from someone who is still stuck in 70s 80s music (I was born in 1971,), been trying to get into current music for a long time. Oh I live in TORONTO and they are performing at the NXNE festival in downtown TORONTO June 19-21,

  38. Oliver Strevel

    This song is really really great! <3

  39. Andrew Markov

    This is such an amazing band. 

  40. Amanda Grieme

    Listen LOUD!  It's brilliant!

  41. Amanda Grieme

    SONG RULES!  Video...   I LOVE LOVE THE TUNE!

  42. Adam Fuller

    I've got the gut flora, I've got the gut flora...

  43. Gregory Eschbacher

    Who is this fantastic band and why am I just discovering them now?  

    Ashley Williams

    They have some great music.

    Gregory Eschbacher

    @***** I know!  I feel incredibly silly and have been rapidly going through their back catalog.   Great stuff.  

    Mark M

    +Gregory Eschbacher Make sure to check out Carl's solo stuff. Neko's, too, but you probably already know about her.

  44. Kween KJ

    OBSESSED! with this song!! On a continuous loop this morning!!!!

  45. Tyler Thompson

    Absolutely sublime.  Anyone down-voting this is literally the reincarnation of Hitler.  And you squish small puppies in your filthy midget hands...smell like cabbage.

    5 bajillion stars!!!

    Zachary LeClaire

    Wow ur wayyyyy over exaggerating how good this is.
    Also Stalin was much worse than the people that don’t like this song (since Stalin was worse than hitler JK not the reason)

  46. somepig2k

    Is Neko Case not in the band anymore?

    Ruby Doomsday

    Lots of the members are sort of in and out, especially the ones with other successful projects. It's kind of anyone's guess whether Dan or Neko will be playing any given show, and I don't think Neko's appeared in one of their videos for the past two albums, but they're both still part of the recording process.

    somepig2k

    @Ruby Doomsday
    Thanks Ruby Doomsday...and you win hands down for the coolest name EVER

  47. inkadinkadoodle

    i had never heard of The New Pornographers before i heard this song about a week ago. i love this song, and i think the band has a great, catchy, retro-like sound that's very easy on the ears. :))
    this song in particular is a job well done!

  48. romcomfan

    New Pornographers are the best band on the planet

  49. Daniel Teska

    this leaves me wondering just what do the lyrics mean ? this isnt the first song ive wondered about but still  . . . 

  50. Sunsetgrrl

    Fantastic song. Deserves to huge. The video is a little...inert...however.

  51. Ray Gilligan

    little pop classic

  52. Bryan Foreman

    Wow. The video's as good as the song.

  53. Rick Tarded

    Maybe its just my bad hearing, however, is the coruse line saying, "I"ve got cancre sores,"???

  54. Scott B

    lol when the dude on the horse shrugged!

    Bryan Foreman

    Yeah, the dude on the horse with the indifferent expression. Hilarious!

  55. TMLGamingHD

    so damn catchy

  56. Aradia With Geese

    what is happening here?!

  57. Todd Boden

    love the song. hate the gibberish video.

    inkadinkadoodle

    i absolutely agree! "gibberish" is a perfect decription. :PP

    Brass Monkey

    @Todd Boden only gibberish if you can't infer symbolic meaning from it :)

    inkadinkadoodle

    @richardeverts13 true, and i'm a huge fan of symbolism, but this didn't strike me as symbolic. it struck me as stupid!
    oh well...one's art is another's gibberish, i suppose! :))

    Patrick C

    and it's not like the lyrics to the song aren't gibberish, no... lol

  58. Paul Bibeau

    The people who downvoted this are the worst human beings in history.

    nirvgorilla

    I love the new pornographers but Brill Bruisers has a dynamic range of 6. SIX! It just sounds BAD.

    Their older albums are a little better, but I've had to resort to getting the vinyl FLACs because I just can't stand the cusp-of-clipping sound they've gone with over the past 5 years.

    Christopher Walker

    +Paul Bibeau I first heard that song "sing me spanish techno" back in 2007 and I LOVE it, but I haven't heard too much else by them that struck a cord in my ear/heart etc.

    Todd Boden

    I liked their 1st three albums and I like Brill Bruiser.  I didn't care much for the ones in between.

    Allen Snyder

    I just assumed they didn't have 3D glasses. ;-)

    Wilo Polis

    @Paul Bibeau If this thread wasn't over 4 years old I would've pointed out the obvious trolling here

  59. Brianne Olson

    This song is so underrated.

  60. Adam

    I would enjoy this video a lot more if I didn't have to keep clicking X on all the links VEVO keeps putting up in front of it. A random other video doesn't mean shit to anyone watching this band, so why is that there?

  61. James Chilli Chillingworth

    where can I get that green t-shirt!

  62. Hot Sluts

    back to brit pop era ;0

  63. flashinggreenphotons

    Why aren't more people listening to this?  This song is really good.

  64. Blurt Man

    Art school.

  65. wdamian

    Clouzot!

  66. CrazyMax46

    "Never been so loved/But you're handling it well, lover/Just like every idea/Wants to be like no other"

    *Music Video is about overused Music Video Cliches*

    Fucking brilliant.

  67. fittalk

    Good song...  Love it ...

  68. Tré Jones

    Ah NP, they're just so pleasant to listen to. Dig the new song and the video to go along with it.

  69. Patrick C

    I am proud that the NPs have never given in to contemporary music video standards and forced Kathryn Calder to shake her ass for the camera.

    Benny J

    to paraphrase: You are proud that the New Pornographers....haven't forced Kathryn Calder to shake her ass for the camera.
    Haha

  70. Logan Hansen

    Damn, that kiss at 1:06 was a little too steamy for me, had to take a break to recompose myself.

  71. nyanarchist

    From Mass Romantic to Dancehall Domine you never cease to surprise and amaze me. Good job

  74. Todd Prepsky

    Love the song and the video. Wish I had some 3D glasses.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Neko singing with Carl on this song? Why just Carl and Kathryn in the video?

    Elwyn Chow

    Maybe availability issues? Maybe that's just the way it was written and directed?

    thehivecolin

    No, Neko doesn't sing on this song... only Carl and Kathryn

    Peter Byker

    Hey Colin, any more Gigi in the future? I LOVED that band.

    thehivecolin

    @Peter Byker Hahaha... thanks!  Well... never say never, but if that were to happen, it won't be for quite a while

  75. George Reagan

    Great song, great video. It's good rock-n-roll music.

  76. DonInFremont

    More brilliance from the Album Of The Year!!!

  77. Assassinsarms

    I actually put on my 3D glasses for this stuff. 3D Carl and Kathryn... me likey!
