"Would You...?"
(1998)
"Straight To... Number One"
(1999)

"Would You...?" is a song by the British electronic/house band Touch and Go. It was released as a single in October 1998.

It reached the number 3 spot on the UK Singles Chart. It became a hit in Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe where the ensemble toured extensively. "Would You...?" has been included on such television show soundtracks as the American G String Divas and the cult British series As If. The track has also been sampled for San Pellegrino, Carlsberg, and Nokia advertisements.[1]

Content

The track is marked by its distinctive sampling of a woman's voice saying "I've noticed you around / I find you very attractive / Would you go to bed with me?". The lyrics – with almost identical wording – were originally used as part of a psychological study conducted in 1978.[2]
