Built around a sample from a public service announcement, "Charly" was a single from a still very young The Prodigy, and one of the 5 singles released from "The Prodigy Experience". Considered a seminal release for it's time and also one of, if not the first, full length LP by a "rave" act. Combining elements of dub, acid-house, hip-hop and Liam Howlett's unmistakable looping style, Experience is classic of a time gone by.
Charly is a fun track, with swirling synth passages, beats and this captivating "cat" yowl that adds an element of interest to a track, that for some people can be ultra repetitive and mind-numbing. The video, a product of it's time, depicts a live performance (which included dancer Keith Flint who later on went to be the voice of The Prodigy along with Maxim Reality—Flint didn't provide vocals until Fat of The Land, two releases later) and scenes of the public service announcement that the main sample is from. Moving past Experience, the follow-up Music For The Jilted Generation leaves behind some of the youthful elements of "rave", in reaction to governmental crackdowns on such events, and is by far a more well-written written record that cemented them into having a long career. It contains one of my favorite tracks of their's, Poison, though Charly brings back some great memories when I first heard the song on WDRE/WLIR's industrial/techno show hosted by DJ Tarnax (Tommy Nappi).
