Drifting out of time
Something on your mind
And I wanna be the
One that you call
When you get down
No matter where you
Are in the world I'll be around

Fly me away on an Aeroplane
High in the sky
Wanna see you again
Wanna know this time,
Gonna tell you what I'm feeling
Gonna know this time,
Gonna get it back that feeling

Miles and miles of sun
Endless roads
twist on
Don't wanna live a life
In a world that's all the same
The crazy little things
That you do are magical

This crazy life
This crazy world
We're living in is
Magical

Goldfrapp manage that great feat of turning a relatively simple song into something much greater through brilliant production and subtly clever instrumentation. And very seductive vocals. This is not the very best example of that, but it's still a brilliantly uplifting song. Roll on her gig at the Roundhouse (Camden) in a few weeks time!
 
Agree with all the above, especially the "very seductive vocals".  She makes my ears melt.

Yes, the music originally called "disco" in the early-to-mid-'70s, (The Hustle, Rock The Boat, The Bee Gees, KC & The Sunshine Band, etc.) wasn't very electronic at all.

 

I saw a documentary on Sly and the Family Stone where one of the band members said that disco, with its 1-2,1-2 beat came into being because white folks couldn't dance to anything more complicated than that.  Made sense to me.

I would classify disco as a specific type of electronic music, even though a lot of it was made with traditional instruments.
Looks like wikipedia sorta agrees with me.

I think Amazon probably has this right.  Not getting the disco feel more electronic. Yea I know the difference is probably considered that great.

I must say, I am deeply enamored of this gal's voice — her delivery is something else! I see strobe lights, the room spinning, and her
magical music

Amazon.com classes Goldfrapp as belonging to the "electronica" genre. Yeah, you are right - it does have a beat reminiscent of disco. (See the Amazon.com listing for her latest CD and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see how Amazon categorizes this (and other) music.

Nice to have in the rotation... esp as Alison used to live next to a former girlfriend... we shared an odd word over the hedge!!

 
Which word was shared and what made it so odd?

Not their best album. Please play Lovely Head from their first effort. 
I am not a big disco/dance music fan but this is ok.  Of course the cover art helps.
Utterly terrible

This is fun!
There's cheesy dance music, then there's Goldfrapp. Okay, maybe fluffy, but certainly not cheesy. Good stuff.

Every time I hear one of Goldfrapp's songs, I like it, and then I look to see who it is.  I really think it's about time I invested in some of her music...
fluffy
Quite the seductive voice.

can easily imagine this as the soundtrack as the credits roll on an action movie with chase scenes in jazzy cars, grim urban settings, angst, and romance -
Je veux un frappe! :cheers: :daisy:

For all the world like the disco songs during the seventies! :dance:

Wow, that's TWO Kate Bush sound-alikes in a row...

This is great stuff! Only other song I've heard from them was called "Strict Machine", prominantly featured as the backbeat to a gameboy commercial a few years ago.
Their First Album is gorgeous, and totally different, Felt Mountain, perfect chill out.

Dunno what to say about that.. I guess I'll give it a 7.
