Everyone Nose (All the Girls Standing in the Line for the Bathroom) (3:27)

Cover of iTunes Festival: London 2008

From iTunes Festival: London 2008 and 4 other releases

This song was recently plagued by a shit description on Last.fm.
The song was written by Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo and produced by The Neptunes. The title of the song derives from the subject of social snorting cocaine in lavatories among women. “Yes, when the girls go in the bathroom, they’re powdering their faces with that other white stuff,” N.E.R.D said. Andrew Coleman, the band’s engineer, explained the song’s bridge, saying it is the “breakdown” of the girl: “you can imagine a girl who is totally coked out of her mind dancing and sweating.”

The beat was inspired by a rare video clip that Missy Elliott showed to N.E.R.D. Williams “lost his mind, the way these people were dancing and these crazy beats”. The song begins with an acoustic bass patch from a Roland 5080 and continues with drums from the Triton Extreme. Coleman, explained the beat was inspired by the “Baltimore B-More sound”. He went on to say that “Timbaland is scratching in there, too. The big Latin section is again, all Pharrell—all the same instruments; he just flipped the programming. That is the Latin club explosion part, mostly programmed beats with some buckets.”

N.E.R.D promoted the song by performing it in several tours and festivals, including the Austin City Limits Music Festival and the Diesel Bash. Toby Green of The Guardian attended a concert at The Roundhouse in London and gave the performance four out of five stars, saying “Pharrell’s knack is connecting with the crowd. Many bands tell the audience they want to party with them, but N.E.R.D seem to mean it.”
