When I was in college (1984-88), I played this song SO MUCH on my JVC boombox that my buddies began calling me "Krishna" - which probably makes little sense, except that they thought this is what was being repeated throughout the song, when in fact, it was "Fiysh Naafiysh Naafiysh..." This is definitely in my top THREE electro songs of all time, alongside "Planet Rock" and "Clear."

Very first ever classic underground Hip Hop tune I ever herd.Around a friends house at his m Mum and Dad's.It was playing on a video recorder with B Boys B-Boying to this track.This was it underground Hip Hop I have found it.Holds a very special memory with me.Peace G Beats.

On Hashim - We're Rocking The Planet the a-side is an edit by Aldo Marin.

On this record the labels mention some "Sure Shot Edit". Sounds like if side A was the edit version again, if you ask me. Is there someone who knows for sure?

The Vicious Remix is a pretty damn sweet remake

The melody line of 'Al-Naafiysh' is stolen hook, line and sinker from Nick Rhodes' lines on Duran Duran's 'New Religion', released in 1982 on their 'Rio' album. It's always amusing to note how few of the electro snobs realise (or admit) that.

Wow,what to say about this?This along with Planet Rock,it is one of the cornerstones of ALL electronic music.Even today nearly 30 years after it's release it sounds futuristic and seriously funky.Massive beats and heartbreaking strings collide to create a track so funky and ethereal that as well as just dancing you can just close your eyes and see all sorts of magical images.This tune is as great as any tune from any genre,EVER.
