GREAT TUNE!! I had never heard of him prior to RP. Now, the more I hear it, the more I like it! Thanx RP!
Excellent!!
sehr gut!  
These folks come at you with so many different styles.
Nice artistic view of covid virus on this album cover 😂
Reminds me of portal for some reason, might have been the radios

Istanbul is my home town :):)
If you happen to like ethnical kinds of music, I can recommend you a nice "Istanbul band" Ayyuka - Sömetr (Album). Give it a try. 
mind blown

I couldn't believe it when I saw my "Marvin" English lyrics re-posted on some of the lyrics sites.  I was just posting what I THOUGHT I heard for the entertainment of RP listeners.  LOL  This is how rumors get started...

 
Well, they were pretty darn good, so...

denn schön nach... Konstantin.

This screams out for "Istanbul not Constantinople" from They Might Be Giants to follow.

That's cause it's not english and the websites are wrong, the samples are sophy - un amor original and cora - istanbul and one of them is in german

I'm likin' this{#Dancingbanana}
Well this is pretty cool....
Yeah!!!, where are you gonna find a latin beat, in who knows what language singing about Istanbul?
Love that fat trombone line.
Aw hells yes!! {#Dance}
its a bit goofy... that kind of motorized/off beat kilter thing gets either disconcerting or annoying...

This is my absolute favorite comment to a song on RP, ever. I think of it every time I hear this song, be it on RP or not.

I miss trekhead.

listening to this with headphones is like when the wind stops blowing in Chicago. I feel like my head is sling shotting forward when the music stops and restarts. I like it. Woke me up.
Groovy.  Not sure if I like it, but groovy just the same...
I can feel my mullet growing back!

the lyrics are

istanbul

istanbul

ich sah nur deine braunen...
...denn schön nach...
istanbul

da sah ich deine braunen augen

A little beyond the extent of my eclecticism.  0.00001
That was a fun song by RJD2!

Picked up both Deadringer and Since We Last Spoke after what I've hard on RP. The former is now one of my favorite albums, the latter is really starting to grow on me.

Love to hear more like this.
 
I concur - Deadringer is a fantastic album.

I am sorry but I wasn't in the mood for that... 

Thank jeebus - Ride My See Saw!!! Moody Blues.  Aaaahhh. 
Nice track, which just has to be followed by Constantinople...but no, we get the metalfittin' Moody Blues ;(. 7 from the Nottingham jury

Whip Inflation Now!!

The horns are so Barbarella!
One of the best instrumental hip-hop songs of all time.  IMO
Funky!
Well named. Can we hear "popcorn" next?

HAHAHHA Great tune ..
Friggin LOVE it!
I think this just became my new "walking" music.
(Enter Starsky and Hutch stage right, looking for Huggie Bear)...
I like this a lot more than the other RJD2 stuff i've heard....plus 1976 is my birth year!
Woohoo, Night in Las Vegas. yippee

It actually sounds like out of the My Neighbor Totoro soundtrack .....
Dopeness! This should be on a sound track to a heist movie, or something. 8 for now.
Really catchy. I'm buying from this guy! Loved it.
Yum - tastes like CAKE! ^ | (Only emoticon I could find that resembles a trumpet)

awwww yeah... i love me some RJD2!!! i highly suggest everyone check out his live sets if you ever get a chance!
impressive, but it's german, not english they're singing...:)
Is the band name supposed to be a pun on R2D2? Even the cameras (?) on the cover remind me somewhat of R2D2's eyes
Damn can these guys spin.
new to me, but I think I like it.
mod squad!!!

Is that the Flying Spaghetti Monster's cousin on the cover?
Very FUN, very cool! Oscar

wow, this one stopped me in my tracks. I'm diggin' it. It's got a great 70's crime movie feel.
i'm usually a fan of rjd2, but this track is just cheesy and annoying (on first listen, at least).
