Samba At 13 is a song by Gorillaz, first appearing as a B-side track on the single "DARE" and subsequently featuring as a Japanese exclusive bonus track on D-Sides.

The track principally comprises drumming performed by members of the London-based Paraiso School of Samba. The opening speech sample is from a 1960s workout LP by American exercise instructor Debbie Drake.


Number thirteen: standing with your feet apart, and your hands on your waist.

Then forward and back, forward and back, forward and back.
