Maison Ikkoku - Get Down (Gilbert O'Sullivan song) - Netflix

“Get Down” is a song by Irish singer-songwriter Gilbert O'Sullivan, from his album I'm a Writer, Not a Fighter. Released as a single, it spent two weeks at the top of the UK Singles Chart in April 1973, was also a number-one hit in Ireland and a top-ten hit in the United States and Canada. The song was originally used by O'Sullivan as a piano warm-up tune, but was eventually extended into a full song and released as a single; O'Sullivan recorded and released the song as a change from the more melancholy pieces. Believed to be an order from O'Sullivan to his dog (“Get Down!”), the singer is actually referring to a girl in the song behaving as a dog jumping on him, hence the request to “get down”. In 2006 British dance group Malibu Sneakers recorded a dance version of the song entitled “Get Down Again” which reached number 42 in the UK Singles Chart. In 2008 it was released as a vinyl 12", including a vocal remix by Raul Rincon. The song has also been used in the film The Harry Hill Movie. According to Rick Finch of KC and the Sunshine Band the song was the inspiration for the 1975 disco hit Get Down Tonight.
