Call On Me (2:54)

Cover of Eric Prydz

From Eric Prydz and 189 other releases

“Call on Me” is a song performed by Swedish DJ and producer Eric Prydz. The single received moderate sales success and topped several record charts. “Call on Me” is known for its music video, which features women performing aerobics in a sexually suggestive manner.

“Call on Me” is a dance music track based on a re-recorded sample of Steve Winwood’s 1982 song “Valerie”. When Prydz presented the track to Winwood, he was so impressed with what Prydz had done, he collaborated with him and re-recorded the vocals to fit the track better.

The song reached number 1 in the UK Singles Chart at a time when the chart was experiencing low sales, due to the CD single facing increasing popularity from the digital download which at the time was not an eligible format in the chart. Until January 2005, Eric Prydz held the record for selling the lowest number of singles for a number-one chart position in the UK in any particular week: “Call on Me” sold 23,519 copies when it returned to the top of the charts on October 17, 2004. This record was broken once again by himself only a week later on October 24, 2004, with the single selling 21,749 copies that week. Nevertheless, it was the fourth biggest selling single of 2004 in the UK, selling 335,000 copies that year - including a DVD single with the uncut video - and staying five weeks at number-one on the UK Singles Chart, the longest run of any single that year.
