  • Lyrics
  • This is the opening track from French electronic pop duo Air's sixth studio album, Love 2.
  • Nicolas Godin of the duo explained to Minnesota Public Radio station 89.3 The Current that this space-funk number is, "our ecology song. It's about the imminent end of the planet so let's enjoy ourselves before it all goes." His Air partner Jean-Benoît Dunckel added: "Our lives right now are in danger from work, from life, from everything. And it's important to be happy now because tomorrow you don't know what will happen. Because we have to enjoy life right now because the end of the world might be tomorrow."
