"Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)" (also released as "Gypsy Woman (La da dee la da da)") is a house music song by American singer Crystal Waters. It was written by Neal Conway, Nathaniel S. Hardy, Jr. and Waters and is the first single from her 1991 debut album, Surprise. The song includes the chorus of "La da dee, la da da" and a much-sampled organ refrain.
Slant Magazine ranked the song 48th in its 100 greatest dance songs list, adding: "'Gypsy Woman' sets its portrait of a crusty, haphazardly made-up bag lady begging dementedly on street corners to the Basement Boys' unforgivingly brutish, mongoloid thump".
It peaked at number eight on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and at number two in the UK Singles Chart, and it went to number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play Chart.
When the song was descending the charts, it appeared on the benefit album Red Hot + Dance in a new incarnation mixed by Joey Negro, who took the song into a new musical direction.
Retitled "Gypsy Woman (La Da Dee)", the song was the highest-debuting single for a new act in the UK Singles Chart at that time - its debut at three was later eclipsed by Gabrielle's "Dreams" entering at two, and then by Whigfield's "Saturday Night" debuting at one.
In the media
In 1991, the song was spoofed in the memorable sketch "My Songs Are Mindless" performed by Kim Wayans on In Living Color, where series regular Wayans portrayed Waters referencing TV shows. Wayans skewered the song's simple rhythm and melody by singing "Hey look, there's Fred and the Flintstones/I got a song now, that's a song now/Yabba dabba doo, yabba dabba doo/Yabba dabba doo, yabba dabba doo...." The clip from the comedy show would sometimes show up mixed into Waters' own version at gay clubs with video screens.
"Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)" is also featured in the video game Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party on the Wii.
Cover versions, samples and remixe
The song's elements were used as the basis for 2 Eivissa's 1997 single "Oh La La La," which itself became an international hit.
Drum & bass producer DJ Ron sampled and remixed in the track called "La Da Dee" on the La Da Dee single in 2003.
The song was sampled by Styles P in 2004 on the song "Favorite Drug" from his album Time is Money, and later by T.I. on his 2006 single "Why You Wanna." At the end of the song "Bums" by Mr. Hyde and Necro, there is a quick sample of Waters saying, "homeless... She's homeless."
In 2006, it was remixed by Sami Dee and Freddy Jones and re-released as "Gypsy Woman 2006 (La-Da-Dee)" on the record label Absolute Sound France. The 12-inch (30 cm) vinyl included two remixes, as well as the a cappella vocal. The Big Room Anthem remix was featured on the 2007 Ministry of Sound annual.
In 2007, Montefiori Cocktail released an instrumental version of "Gypsy Woman".
In summer 2008, Sam Sparro recorded a cover of the song in London with his touring band. He had been performing the song in his live show during his UK/European tour since the spring. He released the song as a B-Side to his single "Pocket".
In January 2009, UK DJ Timmy Vegas released the song "Another Dimension" with Bad Lay-Dee which contains the organ sample of "Gypsy Woman", as well as a sample from Beastie Boys' "Intergalactic". The latter sample is routed through a vocoder-like instrument, which is also driven by chords of the "Gypsy Woman" organ sample.
In February 2011, Japanese singer YU-A released a cover of "Gypsy Woman" on her album 2 Girls.
"Walking" by Mary Mary on their album Something Big contains a sample of "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)" by Crystal Waters.
"Crystal Caverns 1991", the first single from the album Galaxy Garden by British electronic musician Lone, samples the song.
Alexandra Burke sampled the song in her album track "Oh La La" taken from her second album Heartbreak On Hold.
MK1, a hip-hop duo, did this song, along with "Pass Out" by Tinie Tempah on week three of the ninth series of The X Factor.
Alicia Keys used big portions of "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)" and renamed the track "Brand New Me (Part 2)" and released the track in January 2013.
Swedish DJ Ted Nilsson's latest single "Homeless" feature the vocals of "Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)". The song also features British DJs Cjay Swayne and Errol Reid. The song was released on Spinnin' Records's Spinnin' Deep imprint. Two versions of the song were recorded: the "Day" mix and the "Nite" mix and were both released on July 22, 2013.
In 2014, Vassy, Crazibiza, and Dave Aude teamed up to release a single called "Hustlin'," which samples the song and chorus. Its accompanying music video features Vassy and Waters (who received co-writing credits), which pays homage to the "Gypsy Woman" music video. The single reached number one on Billboard's Dance Club Songs Chart in December 2014.
