Get Up! (Before the Night Is Over)



"Get Up! (Before the Night Is Over)" is a 1990 song recorded by Belgian group Technotronic featuring Ya Kid K. It was released as the second single from the band's debut album, Pump Up the Jam: The Album on which it features as the second track. The single was very successful in many countries, becoming a top 10 hit in Australia, Canada, and U.S. and topping the chart in Belgium, Finland, Spain and Switzerland. In 1998 and 1999, it was re-released respectively under the title "Get Up (the '98 Sequel)" and "Get Up (the 1999 Sequel)". The song appears in Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 4 and Dance Dance Revolution 3rd Mix. It contains a vocal sample of James Brown's "Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved". In 2007, the song was covered by Global Deejays (featuring Technotronic) who achieved a minor success in France.

When the song entered the UK chart at number 3, it completed the first ever UK Top 3 composed entirely of acts from outside the UK or US, alongside the Australian Kylie Minogue and the Irish Sinéad O'Connor.

Critical reception

Nicole Leedham from The Canberra Times noted in her review of The Greatest Hits, that "Get Up" and "Pump Up the Jam" were "pushing the envelope of dance music in the late '80s." Music & Media commented, "Can they do it again? It certainly seems that way. This is less rap and more of an orthodox pop song. A strong chorus and one of the biggest bass sounds around. Excellent." Pop Rescue noted that the song "isn’t so dissimilar" to "Pump Up the Jam", "although plays more on the bass line, and gives Ya Kid K the vocalist credit that she works hard to earn – rapping, singing and writing the song."
