Royksopp borrowed for this various instrumental and vocal samples from a Bacharach and David song "Blue on Blue" sang by a Swedish group Gals & Pals. The best known recording of "Blue On Blue" was by Bobby Vinton in 1963.
This was Royksopp's first ever single release in 1999. Originally only 500 copies were made. It was re-released in 2002 as a double a-side along with "Remind Me" to tie in with the Norwegian duo's debut album.
Royksopp are Torbjörn Brundtland and Svein Berge, an ambient dance duo from Tromsø, Norway. The name means "puff ball" (like the fungus).
This was used in a series of television adverts for T-Mobile.
Melody A.M. was voted "the 00's best Norwegian album" - in Norway.
Taylor Swift's “Shake It Off” was inspired by how she'd learned to deal with all the false rumors that circulated about her. "The only thing we can control is our reaction to that ,” said Swift. "You can either let it get to you … [or] you just shake it off."
