"Feeling So Real" is a song by American electronica musician Moby. It was released as the second single from his third studio album Everything Is Wrong on October 17, 1994.[1] The single peaked at number 30 on the UK Singles Chart[2] and at number nine on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.[3]

The song features the phrases "sound system rocking" (the full sample saying "sound system rocking my seat") and "set it up DJ" spoken by Kochie Banton, who also appears in Moby's following single, "Everytime You Touch Me". The guest vocalist for the song is Rozz Morehead.

Release[edit]

The single's B-side is Moby's take on the Joy Division song "New Dawn Fades". It would later be included on the Joy Division tribute album A Means to an End: The Music of Joy Division, and Moby would go on to perform it live with New Order.

The remix CD contains all the separate parts (vocals, strings, drums, etc.) for "Everytime You Touch Me". Mute Records and Elektra held a competition where one had to use the parts to create a remix "in any style you want" and mail it in on digital audio tape (DAT) by November 18, 1994. The winning remixes were included on later singles.
