Moving right along in this celebration of electronic music with my Favorite Electronic Songs series. We are at #6: "Sexy Boy" by Air. Air is an French (Versailles) electronica duo consisting of Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel. Quite popular within the genre, Air is also known for doing the soundtrack to the 2000 film, The Virgin Suicides. From their 1998 debut album, Moon Safari, "Sexy Boy" is a fun bit of electronica, and a fan favorite, as well as a concert staple (a highlight both times I've seen them.) "Sexy Boy" did fairly well for itself, reaching #13 in the UK, and #22 on the Billboard US Dance Sales chart, as well as #20 in Finland (oddly, it stalled at #65 in their native France, where electronica is huge.) The song was used in the movie 10 Things I Hate About You, and the British TV series Queer as Folk. It has also been covered by Franz Ferdinand, and Nena I've linked the video below. It's quite silly. (Info verified by Wikipedia)

Another one I didn't know of - that's pretty cool -- I like electronica but I'm so new at listening to it, I don't really know who I like or not.

It's one that you'll definitely know whether or not you've heard it before.

Never heard of Air or the song. Like many European electronic, a spacy feel and sound.
