"Physical" is a hidden track on 1992's Broken EP that was originally written and performed by Adam Ant. When Broken was first released, this and another extra track, "Suck," were on a Mini CD that was packaged with the EP. But after allegations that some music stores were removing the Mini CD and selling it separately, the two tracks were incorporated onto the EP as tracks 98 and 99, with tracks 7–97 consisting of one second of silence each.

At the beginning (at approx. 27 sec.) of the song Trent Reznor can be heard saying, "Eat your heart out, Steve." This is a possibly directed towards Steve Gottlieb of TVT Records with whom Reznor had been feuding because Gottlieb would not let him out of his contract (it should be noted that the entire Broken EP was done behind TVT's back).

According to a previously unreleased interview Reznor did with Melody Maker magazine, "Physical" was supposed to be a "tongue-in-cheek" cover.

Coming soon.


    I want to date you maybe
    I want to take you out
    I want to wine and dine you
    I want to twist and twist and shout
    I want you hard in my arms
    So soft on my bed
    You get the keys to my heart
    When you wear that sweet dress
    (You know, the short one)
    You're to physical, physical for me
    You're just too physical, physical, for me
    I want your roughhouse baby
    I want this night in your ear
    Let me feel you danger
    I want to make this feeling clear
    I want the touch of your charms
    The heat of your breath
    I want to say all those things
    (Those dirty things)
    That would be better unsaid
