For some reason or other, but what I can’t quite explain. I’m in the mood and groove for a bit of electronica pop just now. I hadn’t heard this is in ages when it popped up on random shuffle the other day and it damn near hypnotised me beyond my stop on the train journey.
mp3 : Air – Kelly Watch The Stars (edit)
It was the second single to be lifted from the hit album Moon Safari and it peaked at #18 in the UK charts in 1998 although I thought it had performed better than that and indeed that it was more recent than 17 years ago.
I like how on the sleeve, if you peer closely, you will see the words ‘French Band’ next to Air. I do recall hearing it the first time on radio and thinking that it was a Chemical Brothers record.
Here’s yer other tracks on the CD single of which just the Beck remix of an earlier hit is really worth your time:-
mp3 : Air – Sexy Boy (Beck ‘sex kino’ mix)
mp3 : Air – Kelly Watch The Stars (album version)
mp3 : Air – Remember (D Whittaker version)
