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.
