"Get Me Off" is a song by British electronic music duo Basement Jaxx. It was released on 17 June 2002 as the fourth single from their second studio album, Rooty. It is their only single from 1996–2005 that wasn't included on their greatest hits album, The Singles.
It was originally intended for Janet Jackson after she contacted the duo to collaborate for her seventh album, All for You.
Upon expressing admiration for the Basement Jaxx's debut album Remedy, Janet Jackson contacted the duo to collaborate. Jackson was offered the song for the album, though declined. "She told us she loved our stuff," recalls Buxton, "but she thought we were Zero 7. We wished her every success in hooking up with a British dance duo eventually and said, ‘Cheerio, Celine.'"
"There wasn't a lot of laughter because she was so uptight."
