    Default Royksopp

    Any fans? I will admit a bit of embarrassment, I learned about them via the Geico Caveman commericals. Awesome band though my favorite song:

    YouTube - Royksopp-Circuit Breaker

    What is that funny light and sound
    Calling me, in my head, repeatedly?
    What is that vision there in sight
    Before my eyes?
    So prominent
    So mesmerizing, turbulent

    You've got a hold on me
    Your ingenuity
    Seems to be driving me down on my knees
    The force you generate
    You reinvigorate
    Your body tells them 'No mistakes'

    For I'm already droll
    Close to the divine
    Toxic human images are rushing through my mind
    Embodiment of sin, has seen a way within
    Sensation seems to multiply
    They're building up inside

    Carried through the night
    Radiating light
    I see you move the crowd
    I know what you're about

    The stories I have heard
    To talk about excess
    I know what people say
    But surely you impress?

    Caressed by a pill
    You elevated soul
    Vanity and pride
    An addict to one
    A universal force
    A one and only kind
    A thing I can't control
    No matter how I try

    What have you done to me?
    This kind of chemistry
    Emotions running over me
    And when you arch your back
    Just when you stay like that
    When it's natural to interact

    When others holding back
    Ready to commence
    Caught up in your bliss
    You're so confusing and intense
    Synergy of two
    Energy go wild
    See the stars aligned and spinning
    Our name out in the sky

    Jealousy in sight
    So fascinating ride
    So much faith between
    Floating up the steam
    Calling out so loud
    Beautiful and true
    Mystery about
    Everything you do

    Caressed by a drug
    You elevated soul
    Vanity and pride
    An addict to one
    A universal force
    A one and only kind
    A thing I can't control
    No matter how I try

    ...

    This electricity
    Injected into me
    Emotions running over me
    And when you're getting close
    You touch my innermost
    A feeling deep inside me knows

    On a floaty light
    Carried through the night
    We have got it all
    I get through without
    Flowing in my veins
    Ribbing through my soul
    I'll never be the same
    The secret can't be told

    Charismatic pill
    You elevated soul
    Vanity and pride
    An addict to one
    A universal force
    A one and only kind
    A thing I can't control
    No matter how I try
    Ground control to Major Tom

    Royksopp FTW.

    I like 'The Understanding' better than any of their albums. 'Junior' is pretty good but definitely has a different feel. Actually.. changed my mind.. I'd say I like 'Junior' just as much as 'The Understanding' though I like them almost as though they were done by different bands if that makes sense.

    They just sound so different from each other.

    I'm not a fan of anything but I like listening to Röyksopp. Occasionally.

    Falcarius went to see them play live in London five years ago or whenever their album The Understanding came out.

    LOL, me too. I never even paid attention to the version on TV but late one night the radio played the slower version and I was like "I've heard that song before but where?"

    The radio never played it again either. Really sad that people in the USA seem let a commercial blind them to a good song and a great band.

    Yeah, they're great. I don't remember when I learned about them, but it was many many years ago! I remember spending many a Winter night playing board or card games with Royksopp on in the background.

    I particularly like Poor Leno and Blue on Blue.

    My cat is a Russian Blue, and we have blue couches so sometimes when she's sleeping on the couch I sing "Blue on Blue" to her.

    PS. I don't know if they've been used on commercials here.

    PPS. Does Falcarius always speak in the third person?

    I like "What Else Is There?" and "Only This Moment" best, but I haven't heard much by them.
