#MusicMonday – Happy Up Here

royksopp[1]I’m genuinely surprised I haven’t passed this song aroung like H1N1 yet, being one of my favorite songs as of late. The song, “Happy Up Here,” is by a band called Royksopp (or Röyksopp, for those of you with “special” keyboards). Royksopp is an electronica duo, hailing from Norway. Most people have never heard of them, but they’ve certainly heard their music before; they were featured in a multitude of different things, from the Mac OS 10.3 installation intro video (Song: Eple) to a Geico commercial (Song: Remind Me). They’re very good, and have a pretty “chill-out” quality to them, which makes them great listening for any occasion. Besides, Norway? Who doesn’t like Norway (apparently not Middle Easterners)?

Anyways, here is “Happy Up Here,” by Royksopp.

    woho :D Norway! Love those guys ^^ btw. it seems like youtube have removed the video. In my opinion the song Eple (apple in english) might be a little bit better, but still…

    For those with spotify;

      Totally sorry about the video; the video's owner disabled embeds, although
      it should still have taken you to the youtube page. Regardless, I'm updating
      the link now.

    Well, the song worked because I am now freakishly cheerful.
    Anyway, I was listening to this song and my brother walked in the room and we started debating whether or not songs like this have any substance. Though, sometimes I think fun, light songs end up being more important to people than some mopey ballad (though I do love those…). BUT! That is another debate for another time!
    Overall, the best thing about this post is that you actually took the time to figure out who doesn't like Norway. haha

      Haha props to Katie for noticing that link! And (personally), I feel that
      songs are appropriate for whatever mood you're in; If I'm bummed, Aqualung
      it is. If I'm happy, Royksopp or Mutemath. See what I mean?
