"Shut Up (and Sleep with Me)" is a song by German eurodance artist Sin With Sebastian.[1] It was released in May 1995 as the lead single from his debut album, Golden Boy. The song was a Europe-wide hit, reaching number-one in Austria, Finland, and Spain. The song also reached the top 10 in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "Here is a novelty number for the Euro-pop twirler in all of us. The vocals are utter camp, lying somewhere between Marc Almond and Jimmy Somerville in style, and the groove is springy and fun."[2]
