Trivia

Wist je dat? "Never Gonna Give You Up" heeft extra bekendheid verkregen dankzij een internetgrap die in 2007 is ontstaan ontstaan en beter bekend is als "Rickrolling".

"Rickrollen" gebeurt door een ander een link te geven, en de indruk te wekken dat daar iets interessants te vinden is. In werkelijkheid leidt de link echter naar de muziekvideo Never Gonna Give You Up van Rick Astley. De grap begon in 2007 toen mensen die zochten naar een trailer van de computergame Grand Theft Auto 4 doorgelinkt werden naar de video van Rick Astley op YouTube.

Rickrollen werd via internet snel internationaal bekend. Zo werd Never Gonna Give You Up afgespeeld tijdens grote protesten tegen Scientology en stuurde de website YouTube op 1 april 2008 alle aanbevolen links op de voorpagina naar deze videoclip.

In 2008 is er door Hugh Atkin een speciale Rickroll gemaakt, de zogenaamde "Barack Roll". In dit filmpje spreekt president Barack Obama de woorden van het liedje Never Gonna Give You Up uit.

Gedurende de Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade van 2008 kwam Rick Astley tevoorschijn op een wagen en "Rickrolde" hij het publiek.

Songtekst

We're no strangers to love, you know the rules and so do I
A full commitments what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy.
I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling, gotta make you understand.

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

We've known each other for so long
Your heart's been aching, but you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it.
And if you ask me how I'm feeling, don't tell me you're too blind to see.

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

(Ooh, give you up, ooh, give you up)
Never gonna give, never gonna give (Give you up)
Never gonna give, never gonna give (Give you up)

We've known each other for so long
Your heart's been aching, but you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it.
I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling, gotta make you understand.

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.
