Awesome. Haven't heard this in ages (and can 14 years since last play be right?!)
Some Beats Antique would be a fine follow up!

Maniac.
I swear this is used on a commercial over in england... can't think which tho.
Damn, this is pretty good, innit? Who'd a thunk it? I'll have to check out some more.
That is hilarious!! You nailed the description,man. fuh2 wrote:
Brilliant. Whoever knew the banjo and whistling would work on the moon
One of the few "techno" outfits that I can actually enjoy. This is very cool.

I believe the technical term for that stuff is "boner medicine". You're welcome. :lol:

You might be thinking of music on the Starburst commercial with the three teenagers walking through a city who bend back keep-on-trucking-style in time with the background whistling. That's what it reminded me of, but that's the Whistle Song by P.J. Olsson.

Sheesh, you try listen to this song without whistling along. Damn near impossible if you ask me! :whistle:

The more I hear of Air, the more impressed I am. Long live trip-hop. (pimp)

mesmerizing... my favorite track on that CD :whistle:

Among my fave new disks (an RP turn-on) I especially like Run and the aforementioned Kyoto. Will have to check out Suicides.
My copy of Air - Walkie Talkie arrived from Amazon today! I'm right into Tokyo...I had never heard these guys until RP. I'm enjoying a new sound immensely.

Far too much "Air" on this station.
hey, there is nothing like eclectic boring air !

Does not merit comparison with Air's work from "Moon Safari" .... everything I have heard from this new album is mediocre at best.
Some folks might have said the same of Sexy Boy, Kelli watch the Stars, etc. IMO, I'd say the albums are both great... for most folks... fewer would like Virgin Suicides, 20KHz as an album or the oldies album...

The whistling always makes me think that this is the theme to the Andy Griffiths Show, gone electronica. Aunt Bea on ex? There's a thought.
I was thinking Bridge on the River Kwai, actually.
Far too much "Air" on this station.
makes me gaga

And here I thought only the Scorpions were corny enough to use whistling in a song... I like Air, but this isn't high on my list of tunes from them.

The whistleing is genius! I love this song. It's intelligent and catchy, which is hard to do.

After giving it at least two full listens I rated it a "3". I don't like to give "bad" reviews unnecessarily. But it was only slightly annoying in a dull, background noise sort of way. On the this, my fourth listen (at least), however, downgraded to "2". "Banjo" bit is slightly redeeming, but...the rest is headache-inducing...at least today. Esp. hate the "whistling". Sorry, nope. :whistle: :P

Banjos are like tits. If you are there and they are there, they ain't fake.

Annoying, yes. But he's correct on this one.
It is scary how much I like this song. I am not sure why.

I often rely on NN's insight even when, as in this case, the CORRECT ANSWER is 9!

It didn't until you mentioned it. Now I'll never be able to listen to this without thinking of my dogs jumping around in the yard.

Saw them yesterday in concert here in zurich. > not particularly inspiring. They're definitely a studio band! But guess what people were whistling afterwards?
happy whistling and banjos. who would have thought. :D
This is like nothing I have ever heard before. I kinda like it.
I've had to listen to this song (and a few more off this album) every day for the last week or so (shelving books in the early morning at a Barnes & Noble). . . and I still love it!
The whistleing is genius! I love this song. It's intelligent and catchy, which is hard to do. For me anyway, it's a song that gets stuck in my head but for some reason, I love it when it does. I usually get sick of songs that do that too........ Air is good for everybody!!
