Yoo Doo Right
|"Yoo Doo Right"|
|Song by Can|
|from the album Monster Movie|
"Yoo Doo Right" is a song on Can's 1969 debut album, Monster Movie, which had been edited down from a six-hour improvisation to a mere twenty minutes. The song features a pounding, tribal-influenced rhythm section throughout, along with singer Malcolm Mooney repeatedly reading excerpts from a love letter in an almost mantra-like manner.
Can continued to play the song after Mooney's departure, as heard on the Can Live album. It has been covered in abbreviated form by the Geraldine Fibbers, Thin White Rope, Masaki Batoh, Susheela Raman, Jonathan Segel, The Wendys and others. In 2001, shortly after the death of Can's guitarist Michael Karoli, a group of musicians associated with the Austrian composer Karlheinz Essl performed this song in several hour-long concerts in his memory.
The first track on the Primal Scream album Screamadelica, "Movin' on Up", features the line "I was blind, now I can see, you made a believer outta me" which also appears in the lyrics of "Yoo Doo Right".
