lights and music :: cut copy

Hurray for iTunes free song of the week! Otherwise I don't know if I would've ever come across Cut Copy. After doing a little research using the great wikipedia, I found out that Cut Copy hails from the great city of Melbourne Australia, and that they've actually toured with some pretty big names in the indie-dance and electropop genres. For example, Junior Senior, Daft Punk, Fran Ferdinand and Bloc Party.
I like the song, I've found it's excellent to play in the morning when I'm getting ready for the day. It's not too vigorous so it's not overwhelming, but its catchy, repetitive and in a major key which all are important components of morning music.
The music video is a little trippy, and kind of reminds me of the music videos that get shown really late at night on VH1. Just the band kinda rocking out while there are pretty lights and colors around. It works either way.



This is where we walk today
For your birthday
Secrets that we held that day
Will be kept straight

All your friends have gone away
So let’s celebrate
With holding hope open for the one
Making new way

Lights and music
Are on my mind
Be my baby
One more time

Lights and music
Are on my mind
Be my baby
One more time

Fading will become of you
Seeing my face
Cold and crystal you can hide
But your tears race

I’ll be waiting by your time
Put your dreams away
With holding hope, hoping for the one
Making new way

Lights and music
Are on my mind
Be my baby
One more time

Lights and music
Are on my mind
Be my baby
One more time
