#TBT || Benny Benassi ft. Gary Go – Cinema

It was in 2011 that Benny Benassi captured the hearts of millions with hit track “Cinema”!


Let’s throw it back this Thursday to the year 2011, when electro house was still king and the “Electroman” himself, Benny Benassi, was dominating the airwaves once again. Now, I’m sure that everyone has heard this tune at some point in their raving career. Whether you admit to liking it or not, “Cinema” is one of Benny Benassi’s biggest tunes to date and continues to receive play in sets around the world. Featured on the Need For Speed Hot Pursuit video game soundtrack, the track was officially released with several remixes too. Notably, the Skrillex remix was certified platinum in the US and even won a Grammy Award for best remix. While the Skrillex remix went on to receive more success than the original, I will always love the original version more than the rest.

Benny Benassi ft. Gary Go – Cinema Lyrics

I could watch you for a lifetime
You’re my favorite movie
A thousand endings
You mean everything to me
I never know what’s comin’
Forever fascinated
Hope you don’t stop runnin’
To me ’cause I’ll always be waitin’

You are my cinema
I could watch you forever
Action thriller
I could watch you forever
You are my cinema
A Hollywood treasure
Love you just the way you are
My cinema my cinema
A cinema a cinema a cinema a cinema

Stars spell out your name
Like in a science fiction drama
Romance growing
Like a flower in the summer
You always keep me guessin’
Forever my wonder
Hope you start undressin’
All my dreams and take me under

You are my cinema
I could watch you forever
Action thriller
I could watch you forever
You are my cinema
A Hollywood treasure
Love you just the way you are
My cinema
My cinema

Never know what movie you’re playin’
Never know what movie you’re playin’
Never know what movie you’re playin’
Never know never know never know

You are my cinema
I could watch you forever
Action thriller
I could watch you forever
You are a cinema
A Hollywood treasure
Love you just the way you are
My cinema
My cinema


About Benny Benassi:

The fashionable, fun, and sometimes freaky sound of Milan-born DJ/producer Benny Benassi first hit the charts under that name in 2002 with the electro-meets-house single “Satisfaction.” Created in collaboration with his cousin Alle — in a team that would become known as the Benassi Bros. — it was praised by high-profile DJs such as Carl Cox, Darren Emerson, and Roger Sanchez. Although “Satisfaction” charted internationally, it wasn’t the first time that Benassi had tasted success. In 2001, under the name KMC, he had worked with vocalist Dhany on the infectious “I Feel So Fine,” which initially stormed the Italian charts before it hit the number one spot in the U.K. By September 2003, the campy and quirky Hypnotica was issued as Benassi’s solo debut album in collaboration with the Biz, a vocal team that featured Paul French and Violeta. A year later, Pumphonia marked the first full-length release under the Benassi Bros. name, and by the end of 2004 he had won the European Borders Breakers Award for Hypnotica, when it racked up the most sales that year for an Italian album outside of Italy.

A second Benassi Bros. album, …Phobia, appeared in 2005 before he went on to consolidate and improve his reputation on the DJ circuit with a number of prestigious headline festival performances. His summer 2007 remix of Public Enemy’s “Bring the Noise” went on to win a Grammy in early 2008, further enhancing his profile and leading to work with big names such as David Bowie and Madonna. Summer 2008 brought another solo album, Rock ‘n’ Rave, but it was 2011’s Electroman that featured some of his most internationally successful material: the Kelis-fronted “Spaceship,” the Chris Brown-led “Beautiful People,” and the Gary Go collaboration “Cinema.” The year 2012 was marked by Benassi’s production work on Madonna’s MDNA, and 2013 brought “Dance the Pain Away,” a solo single that featured John Legend. ~ David Jeffries & James Wilkinson, Rovi
