One More

I am always on the lookout for Thorkelson Song of the Year candidates and while this one may not win, it's certainly on the shortlist for further consideration. It's "Digitalism in Cairo" by the band Digitalism, from 2007's Idealism. They're a German electronic/Kraut-rock band, they sound a little like Daft Punk. The song doesn't really jump out and grab your attention with the first listen, but it really grows on me each time I hear it.

The vocal sample used in the song is from The Cure's "Fire in Cairo", which was released in 1979. I used to really hate The Cure but the more I hear of their early stuff, the more I realize that perhaps I should reconsider my opinion of them.
