"E Talking" is a song by Belgian electronic music duo Soulwax. It was released as the second single from their third studio album, Any Minute Now (2004), on 17 January 2005. It reached number 27 on the UK Singles Chart in 2005. A snippet of the song is featured on their 2005 album Nite Versions, through a hidden track in the pregap.


The high pitched electronic sample used during parts of the song is a modified sample from the end guitar riff from "Always the Sun" by The Stranglers.

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song is set in a nightclub, cycling through various club-goers and listing the drugs they are on. The video goes through the entire "drug alphabet," beginning with A for Acid and ending in Z for Zoloft. The video has been restricted to night-time play because of its drug content.
