"Rippin' Up the Disco" is a song by Kylie Minogue, recorded during the sessions for her tenth studio album X (2007). Though it was not included on the final album track listing, it appeared as a bonus track on the CD-ROM edition of the album.

Background and composition

"Rippin' Up the Disco" was one of the many songs recorded during the sessions for X, and was included as a bonus track on the CD-ROM edition of the album.

The song incorporates elements of electronic music as well as elements of pop, dance and disco music. At a running time of three minutes and twenty-nine seconds, "Rippin' Up the Disco" was written by Mich Hedin Hansen, Jonas Jeberg and Jasmine Baird, whilst production was handled by Cutfather and Jeberg. Lyrically the song speaks of some kind of psychedelic infatuation with another, most presumably on a night in the club.

Lyrics

Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down

Micro love, you're shattered dreams and glitter
The shuffle, shaking shiver
To mourn electro lady luck
Metallically reflecting your retromatic fashion and style
I never want to lose the glow
Strobe lightning take over my soul
Intrusion never let you go

You won't control me now
I'm burning to feel it
Now I'm ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor

Baby, if you think you're in me
Won't control me now
Ripping up the disco (won't control me now)
Raving on the dancefloor
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor

Down, down, down, down

Destiny, I'm hip to your persuasion
Your solid reputation
I follow who's at the red light road
You're slammin' and you relish
So foxy funkadellic, you glow
Light's mantra, I begin to move
Reaction spotlight on the groove
Suspicious, everybody wants to play

You won't control me now
I'm burning to feel it
Now I'm ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor (now I'm)
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor

Baby, if you think you're in me
Won't control me now (now I'm)
Ripping up the disco (won't control me now)
Raving on the dancefloor
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor

I'm, I'm, I'm in trouble now
I'm, I'm, I'm (serious reputation)
I'm, I'm, I'm ambitious now
I'm, I'm, I'm

Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor

You won't control me now
I'm burning to feel it
Now I'm ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor (now I'm)
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor
Ripping up the disco
Ripping up the disco
Ripping up the disco
Raving on the dancefloor
