My Folder

Plastic OperatorFor quite a time by now I’m hooked to the excellent Folder (click to hear sample) by Plastic Operator. On their website you can view the videoclip that accompanies it

The track sounds o-so familiar. The lyrics, rythm, high-pitched voice and electronic sound reminds me of The Postal Service (yes I dare comparing them to TPS, they’ve got more than great potential!). Above that I have a know weakness for “strings” (as in violins and such, you naughty person!) which gives that extra touch to the track. Kinda reminds me of “you” by “Das Pop” … the song’s also been given one sweet extra punch by the excellent orchestrawork.
If you continue reading, you’ll find out that one of the two people behind Plastic Operator is a Belgian dude and they are connected to the more than kick-ass Styrofoam (also Belgian) who even created a remix of the track … Bramus.Is.Happy 🙂

More samples (including the Styrofoam Remix) can be listened to over at JunoRecords

Oh yeah, in case you can’t remember the lyrics, here they are:

That’s why I copy and paste
Into your folder, folder
With your name
It’d be more than I could take
If I just told you, told you
What I feel

That’s why I copy and paste
Into your folder, folder
With your name
It’d be more than I could take
If I just told you, told you
What I feel

That’s why I copy and paste

You can drive me mad
If you tend to hide, but I admire
You can make me sad
And I want you to make it all worthwhile

Into your folder, folder
With your name
It’d be more than I could take
If I just told you, told you
What I feel

That’s why I copy and paste
Into your folder, folder
With your name
It’d be more than I could take
If I just told you, told you
What I feel

That’s why I copy and paste
You can lift me up,
A single smile can set my heart on fire
You don’t have to stop,
A gentle touch can fill me with desire

If I just told you, told you, told you
If I just told you, told you, told you
If I just told you, told you, told you
Told you, told you, told you, told you

Oooh oooh ooooooh
Oooh oooh ooooooh
Oooh oooh ooooooh

You’re intelligent, though ignorant
And I want you know
We can fake the start
And pretend that we have reached the end
If I just told you, told you, told you
If I just told you, told you, told you
If I just told you, told you, told you
Told you, told you, told you, told you

Oooh oooh Oooh Oooooooooh
Oooh oooh Oooh Oooooooooh
Oooh oooh Oooh Oooooooooh

That’s why I copy and paste
That’s why I copy and paste

Yes I know, it keeps flowing through the brain 😛 …

B!
