Emergency on Planet Earth
Emergency on Planet Earth is the fourth and final single released from British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquais debut studio album, of the same name. The song was written by Jay Kay, and has a very environmentalist tone, urging the listener to “stop modernisation going on.” The track peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart, and at #4 on the U. S. Dance Chart. A remix of the song, which uses a completely different bass track and intro, and includes some changes in the arrangements, was featured on the single, and in the music video for the song. This version was later released on the group’s greatest hits compilation, High Times: Singles 1992–2006.
