CD single - version by Benny Benassi and the Biz

"Satisfaction" is a single by Italian DJ Benny Benassi from his 2002 album Hypnotica. Using MacinTalk, the song's vocals consist of two speech synthesizers, one male and one female, repeatedly saying "Push me and then just touch me 'til I can get my satisfaction". The track was Benassi's debut single and most successful song, peaking at number 2 in the United Kingdom. It was also used in a TV commercial for an Australian beer,[1] and Wendy's hamburgers. It also appears in the film White Chicks and the video games Just Dance 2, Dance Central, DJ Hero, and Saints Row: The Third as well as in the Beavis and Butt-head episode "Drones". As of August 2014, it is the 48th best-selling single of the 21st century in France, with 382,000 units sold.[2]

Music videos[edit]

  • Version 1: The first version of the music video feature the three men and the woman in the cover of Hypnotica. It consists of one three-second take of the four people turning to face the camera and smile, played in slow-motion to match the length of the song. Overlaid are various animations including close-up pictures of the lips of a man and a woman singing along to the song. This music video was barely played on music channels, although in some countries, it replaced the "construction" version.
  • Version 3: The third version of the clip is animated. It shows animations of people dancing, singing and drinking. Very few music stations played this version.
