Deeper Underground is a single by British Acid Jazz band Jamiroquai that appeared on the soundtrack to the 1998 film Godzilla, Godzilla: The Album. The song was also included as a bonus track on the group's fourth studio album Synkronized as well as on the special edition of the group's fifth album A Funk Odyssey.

The song became a hit in several countries, finding the most success in the bands native United Kingdom, becoming group's first and only single to reach number one on the UK Singles Chart.

Music videoEdit

In a film theatre, Godzilla is being shown. However, as the screen shows Godzilla walking on the ocean floor, one of its feet breaks the screen and water floods into the theatre as if the screen were made of glass and everything behind it were real. The theatre turns into chaos as the audience tries to get out alive, in the midst of which Jay Kay appears and dances on top of the seats. Several other things go through the screen, including a helicopter and a taxi.

TriviaEdit

  • Another version of the video replaces Godzilla with a man in the movie who smashes an aquarium, causing the theatre to flood. The rest of the video is completely identical.
  • Directed by Mike Lipscombe, the video was used as a promotional tool for Godzilla (1998 film).
  • A t-shirt promoting the 1998 film Godzilla and Jamiroquai and the song "Deeper Underground" was released in 1998.
