1. Electric Avenue – Eddie Grant

Released in 1982 from the Album Killer on the Rampage, Eddie Grant has a number of absolute classic 80s tunes and this tune is right up there with one of the best songs with electric in the title.

The song was Eddie’s response to the London riots in the 80s which were illuminated by lightning.

Hence the naming of the street Electric Avenue in Brixton, South London.

“Now in the street there is violence
And, and a lots of work to be done
No place to hang out our washing
And, and I can’t blame all on the sun

Oh no we gonna rock down to electric avenue
And then we’ll take it higher
Oh we gonna rock down to electric avenue
And then we’ll take it higher”

2. Everything’s Electric – Liam Gallagher

Obviously known for his days in Oasis and feuds with his brother Noel Gallagher, Liam came out with this electric banger in 2022 featuring Dave Grohl.

From his album C’Mon You Know, one of Liam’s many favourite catchphrases, Everything’s Electric isn’t about the electrification of the UK, many think the song is about the gloomy two years post Covid pandemic.

With glam-style guitars it’s an Oasis / Rolling Stones style song with Britpop vibes, Everything’s Electric is bound to be used for many electric programmes and projects over years to come.

“I don’t hate you
But I despise that feeling
There’s nothing left for me here
You won’t know if you don’t go
Superficial feelings
It’s hard to take it easy
Underneath the red sun
Everything’s electric”

3. Electric Feel – MGMT

American band MGMT were formed in 2002 and released this electric beauty in 2007 from the amazing album Oracular Spectacular.

The YouTube video below has been viewed over 150 million times, it was a big hit in Australia reaching number seven. It was covered by Katy Perry and incorporated into Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)’ during shows in Las Vegas. It’s been used in many different TV shows and soundtracks and we’re sure with it’s electrification lyrics will be used for many more years to come.

“All along the Western front
People line up to receive
She got the power in her hand
To shock you like you won’t believe
Saw her in the Amazon
With the voltage running through her skin
Standing there with nothing on
She gonna teach me how to swim

I said, “ooh, girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel”
I said, “ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel”

4. Electric Relaxation – A Tribe Called Quest

From the album Midnight Marauders, Electric Relaxation from A Tribe Called Quest was released in 1993. This old school hip hop tune samples ‘Mystic Brew’ from Ronnie Foster, with many referring to it as ‘jazz rap’.

ATCQ member Phife said they created the song in Q-Tip’s grandmother’s basement, they actually wrote each other’s lines for the song which is how it achieves it’s relentless back and forth style.

“Relax yourself girl, please settle down
Relax yourself girl, please settle down
Relax yourself girl, please settle down
Relax yourself girl, please settle down
Relax yourself girl, please settle down
Relax yourself girl, please settle down

Honey, check it out, you got me mesmerized
With your black hair and your fat-ass thighs
Street poetry is my every day
But yo, I gotta stop when you trot my way
If I was working at the club, you would not pay
Aiyyo, my man Phife Diggy, he got something to say”

5. Together in Electric Dreams – The Human League

This mid 80s classic released in 1985 was written by Philip Oakley and Giorgio Moroder for the film ‘Electric Dreams’.

This song was a huge success powered by the film but surpassing the film in terms of popularity reaching no.3 in the UK charts.

Oakley stated it took ten minutes to record and has been used in many productions since including iconic game Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories.

“I only knew you for a while
I never saw your smile
Till it was time to go
Time to go away (time to go away)

Sometimes its hard to recognise
Love comes as a surprise
And its too late
It’s just to late to stay (to late to stay)

We’ll always be together
However far it seems (love never ends)
We’ll always be together
Together in electric dreams”

6. Electricity – Dua Lipa

Featuring Mark Ronson and Silk City, Electricity was released in September 2018, it has disco house and electropop vibes but they also released an acoustic version later in the same year.

“Falling into you, baby
Even electricity can’t compare to what I feel
When I’m with you
Ooh, baby
Giving up my ghost for you
And now I’m see-through

You give me a feeling, feeling so strong
I know you’ve been treating, treating yourself wrong
So let me care for you
Ooh, baby
I’ma love you differently
I’ll give you electricity
Give it to you”

7. Electricity – Arctic Monkeys

Legendary Sheffield band the Arctic Monkeys released R U Mine? in 2012, an album which contains the song Electricity.

It’s a song about the kisses of his girlfriend filling him with electricity, nice and simple comparison and great song from an incredible UK band.

“Darlin’ tell me something I don’t know
Be my baby, be my GTO
Call me something no one else calls me
I forget how I want it
That electricity

My heart was breaking
And got left unlocked
Didn’t see you sneak in
But I’m glad you stopped
Tell me something I don’t already know
Like how you get your kisses
To fill me with electricity

Love like locked horns
Love like dominoes
Be my midnight
Be my ebb and flow
I forget how I want it
How it crept up on me
It takes over

8. Electricityscape – Strokes

A rapid and haunting tune from The Stokes is a melancholic tune which states ‘I wish two drinks were always in me’.

From the album ‘First Impressions of Earth’, Electrcityscape is a alternative classic and many rate it up there as one of The Strokes best tunes.

With an incredible guitar hook it’s a song about relationships in the city and nights out.

“Oh, with strangers to impress, so near
Old friends don’t realize I’m here
I wish two drinks were always in me
I’d pretend I had the perfect ear

Take me to the water
Make me understand that I was wrong

For me, tomorrow is my first day
So please don’t tempt me in the wrong way

It’s almost after midnight
I can see the city lights
We’re here

Change your mind tonight
You belong to the city now
And you’re closer now, I know
You belong on the radio”

9. Electricity – Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Released in 1980, Electricity from OMITD was the first song that Paul Humphreys and Andy McCluskey wrote together.

It is a critically acclaimed song from the synth pop era and classed as a hugely influential single.

Unlike many of the other electric themed songs on this list, it’s actually about society’s wasteful nature of natural resources.

Pushed by radio legend John Peel, Electricity gained popularity in the UK fairly quickly. NME even stated the song was one of the most influential songs of the post-punk era.

“Our one source of energy
The ultimate discovery
Electric blue for me
Never more to be free

Nuclear and H E B
Come fuels from the sea
Wasted electricity

Our one source energy
All we need is to learn to save
And if a man would throw away

It doesn’t change the city cost
The alternative is only one
The final source of energy
Solar electricity”

10. She’s Electric – Oasis

We’ve had Liam Gallagher’s solo electric hit and now for his band – from their second classic album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory, She’s Electric was used as a promotional single, not surprising considering it’s catchiness!

Written by Noel Gallagher, it’s about a relationship between a man and his girlfriend’s unique and ‘electric’ family. Despite never being released as a proper single, it makes many best Oasis tune lists.

“She’s electric
She’s in a family full of eccentrics
She’s done things I’ve never expected
And I need more time
She’s got a sister
And God only knows how I’ve missed her
And on the palm of her hand is a blister
And I need more time

And I want you to know
I’ve got my mind made up now (mind made up now)
But I need more time
And I want you to say
Do you know what I’m sayin’? (What I’m sayin’)
But I need more
‘Cause I’ll be you and you’ll be me
There’s lots and lots for us to see
Lots and lots for us to do
She is electric, can I be electric too?”

11. Electric Chapel – Lady Gaga

Recorded in 2010, another electro-rock / glam hit with an electricity theme, Electric Chapel is from Lady Gaga’s second album.

“My body is sanctuary
My blood is pure
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
You want me bad
I think you’re cool
But I’m not sure
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Follow me
Don’t be such a holy fool
Follow me
I need something more from you
It’s not about sex or champagne
You holy fool
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

If you want me
Meet me at electric chapel
If you want me
Meet me at electric chapel
If you wanna steal my heart away
Meet me, meet me baby in a safe place
Come on meet me
In electric chapel”

Bonus song: Danger! High Voltage by Electric Six

Ok so it’s not got the word electric in the title, but it’s a lot to do with electricity and it’s got electric in the group name, so that’s why this classic made it to the list as a bonus track…

Danger! High Voltage is a cult classic and has a crazy music video to match, which you can watch below.

It was released in 2003 and features vocals from Jack White from the White Stripes with Dick Valentine. The female in the Danger! High Voltage video is Tina Kanarek who helps to create this disturbing and legendary music video.

The song hit no. 2 in the UK music chart and NME gave it single of the week.

“Fire in the disco
Fire in the Taco Bell
Fire in the disco
Fire in the gates of hell

Don’t you wanna know how we keep startin’ fires
It’s my desire
It’s my desire
Don’t you wanna know how we keep startin’ fires
It’s my desire
It’s my desire
It’s my desire
Danger, danger
High voltage
When we touch, when we kiss
Danger, danger
High voltage”
