  • Lyrics
  • The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, who got some attention when their song "Around The Bend" was used in a commercial for the iPod Touch, is a Danish group led by singer Mette Lindberg and bass/keyboard player Lars Iversen. Lars told us: "That must be the most happy and cheerful song that we have. It's about dreaming yourself back in time, back into the '30s, '60s, '70s - whenever you feel like there was something going on that you missed, and that you weren't a part of because you weren't born at that time. It's about that feeling of walking down the street and dreaming yourself back to these cool times of Frank Sinatra or Jimi Hendrix." (Read more from Lars in our Asteroids Galaxy Tour interview.)
  • The song features prominently throughout Heineken's international 2011 90-second commercial entitled The Entrance, which sees a man battling some quirky characters in a hotel lobby.
