B i o g r a p h y
 (by John Bush)

With a sensual, atmospheric sound inspired by Burt Bacharach and Brian Wilson as well as disco, synthesizer maestros Tomita, Jean-Michel Jarre, and Vangelis, new wave, and obscure Italian film soundtracks, Air may have been outliers in the late-'90s electronica boom, but they became one of the most influential electronic acts of the 2000s and beyond. Despite gaining quick entrance into the dance community (through releases for Source and Mo' Wax), Air's 1998 debut album, Moon Safari, charted a light -- well, airy -- course along soundscapes composed with melody lines by Moog and Rhodes, not Roland and Yamaha. The presence of several female vocalists, an equipment list whose number of pieces stretched into the dozens, and a Baroque tuba solo on one track -- all of this conspired to make Air more of a happening in the living room than the dancefloor.

Though Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel both grew up in Versailles, the two didn't meet until they began studying at the same college. Dunckel, who had studied at the Conservatoire in Paris, played in an alternative band named Orange. One of Dunckel's bandmates, Alex Gopher, introduced Godin into the lineup. While Gopher himself departed (later to record for the Solid label), Dunckel and Godin continued on, becoming Air by 1995. During 1996-1997, the duo released singles on Britain's Mo' Wax ("Modular") and the domestic Source label ("Casanova 70," "Le Soleil Est Prés de Moi"). Though Air often evinced the same '60s Continental charm as Dimitri from Paris -- due no doubt to the influence of Serge Gainsbourg -- the duo had little in common musically with other acts (Daft Punk) in the wave of French electronica lapping at the shores of Britain and America during 1997. That same year, Air remixed Depeche Mode and Neneh Cherry and joined French musique concrète popster Jean-Jacques Perrey for a track on the Source compilation Sourcelab, Vol. 3.

Signed to Virgin, Air released their debut album, Moon Safari, in early 1998. The singles "Sexy Boy" and "Kelly Watch the Stars" became moderate hits in Britain and earned airplay on MTV. Later that year, Godin and Dunckel mounted an ambitious tour throughout Europe and America, though they had originally decided to forego live appearances. Their early singles were collected in 1999 under the title Premiers Symptomes; the duo's soundtrack to the Sofia Coppola film The Virgin Suicides followed in early 2000. Air's second studio effort, 10,000 Hz Legend, appeared in spring 2001 with a subsequent tour of the U.S., but critics and fans alike didn't appreciate the darker, more experimental direction. They bridged the gap between the pop of Moon Safari and the experimentalism of 10,000 Hz Legend with their 2004 release, Talkie Walkie.

Along with touring in support of that album, the pair remained busy making music in 2005 and 2006: they collaborated, along with Pulp's Jarvis Cocker and the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon, on Charlotte Gainsbourg's album 5:55, and Dunckel released a solo album as Darkel. Cocker and Hannon also appeared on Air's fourth album, Pocket Symphony, which was released in early 2007. On one leg of the band's Pocket Symphony tour in 2008, the duo performed with just longtime collaborator and drummer Joey Waronker as their backing band. They kept this lineup for their next album, 2009's Love 2, which marked Air's first self-produced work and featured a more streamlined sound than some of their previous music. Dunckel and Godin went in a very different direction for their next album, which was based on an original score they created for the 1902 classic silent film Le Voyage Dans la Lune. The pair created the score in less than a month, working with collaborators such as Au Revoir Simone and Beach House's Victoria LeGrand, then expanded it into a full-length album that was released early in 2012. Later in the 2010s, Dunckel further established himself as a composer for film, embarked on with New Young Pony Club's Lou Hayter (as Tomorrow's World) and Bang Gang's Bardi Jóhannsson (as Starwalker), and returned to his Darkel project with 2015's lavish The Man of Sorrow EP.

Moon Safari

Sexy boy

Sexy boy, sexy boy ...

Où sont tes héros aux corps d'athlètes
Où sont tes idoles mal rasées, bien habillées

Sexy boy, sexy boy ...

Dans leurs yeux des dollars
Dans leurs sourires des diamants
Moi aussi un jour je serai beau comme un Dieu

Sexy boy, sexy boy ...

Apollon deux mille zéro défaut vingt et un an
C'est l'homme ideal charme au masculin

Sexy boy, sexy boy ...

All I need

All I need is a little time,
To get behind this sun and cast my weight,
All I need is a peace of this mind,
Then I can celebrate.

All in all there's something to give,
All in all there's something to do,
All in all there's something to live,
With you ...

All I need is a little sign,
To get behind this sun and cast this weight of mine,
All I need is the place to find,
And there I'll celebrate.

All in all there's something to give,
All in all there's something to do,
All in all there's something to live,
With you ...

Remember

Remember together remember forever,
Souviens toi ce jour-là toi et moi.

You make it easy

" Never been here - How about you ? "
You smile at my answer,
You've given me the chance,
To be held and understood.

You leave me laughing without crying,
There's no use denying,
For many times I've tried,
Love has never felt as good.

Be it downtown or way up in the air,
When your heart's pounding,
You know that I'm aware.

You make it easy to watch the world with love,
You make it easy to let the past be done,
You make it easy.

How'd you do it ? How'd you find me ?
How did I find you ?
How can this be true ?
To be held and understood.

Keep it coming - no one's running
The lesson I'm learning
'Cause blessings are deserved
By the trust that always could

Be it downtown or way up in the air,
When your heart's pounding,
You know that I'm aware.

You make it easy to watch the world with love,
You make it easy to let the past be done,
You make it easy.

You make it easy to watch the world with love,
You make it easy to let the past be done,
You make it easy.

New star in the sky

My baby blue is a new star,
In the sky,
The world the world the world the world,
Just for you for nobody else.

The Virgin Suicides

Playground love

I'm a high school lover, and you're my favourite flavour
Love is all, all my soul
You're my Playground Love

Yet my hands are shaking
I feel my body remains, time's no matter, I'm on fire
On the playground, love. 

You're the piece of gold the flushes all my soul. 
Extra time, on the ground. 
You're my Playground Love. 

Anytime, anyway, 
You're my Playground Love. 

*** Thanx a lot to PietroPaolo who corrected this one ***

The word 'hurricane'

The word 'Hurricane' is the name given to nature's strongest storm.
A hurricane occurs when high pressure and low pressure masses of air come in contact with one another. 

There is often a significant difference in temperature between the two masses. 
One mass is warm, while the other is cold.
The warmer air rises, and the cooler air falls.
Likewise, the low pressure area slides down the sides of the high pressure area. 

They swirl in and around one another, creating the beginnings of the storm. 

Suicide underground 

Everyone dated the demise of our neighbourhood from the suicide of the Lisbon girls.
People saw their clairvoyance in the wiped-out elms and harsh sunlight.
Some thought the torture tearing the Lisbon girls pointed to a simple refusal to accept the world as it was handed down to them:
So full of flaws.
But the only thing we are certain of after all these years is the insufficiency of explanations.

"Obviously doctor, you've never been a thirteen year-old girl."

The Lisbon girls were 13, Cecile, 14, Lux, 15, Bonnie, 16, Mary, and 17, Therese.
No one could understand how Mrs. Lisbon and Mr. Lisbon, a math teacher, had produced such beautiful creatures.

From that time one, the Lisbon house began to change.
Almost every day, and even when she wasn't keeping an eye on Cecilia,
Lux would suntan on her towel wearing a swimsuit that caused the knife-sharpener to give her a 15-minute demonstration for free.

The only reliable boy who got to know Lux was Trip Fontaine
Who only 8 months before the suicides had emerged from baby fat
To the delight of girls and mothers alike.

But few anticipated it would be so drastic.
The girls were pulled out of school, and Mrs. Lisbon shut the house for maximum security isolation.
The girls' only contact to the outside world was through the catalogues
They ordered that started to fill the Lisbon's mailbox with pictures of high-end fashions and brochures for exotic vacations.
Unable to go anywhere, the girls travelled in their imaginations:
To gold-tipped Siamese temples or past an old man with a leaf broom, tidying a moss-carpeted speck of Japan.
And Cecelia hadn't died. She was a bride in Calcutta.

Collecting everything we could of theirs, we couldn't get the Lisbon girls out of our minds, but they were slipping away.
The colour of their eyes was fading, along with exact locations of moles and dimples.
From five, they had become four, and they were all living in the dead, becoming shadows.
We would have lost them completely if the girls hadn't contacted us.

Lux was the last to go.
Fleeing from the house, we forgot to stop at the garage.
After the suicide free-for-all, Mr. and Mrs. Lisbon gave up any attempt to lead a normal life.
They had Mr. Henry pack up the house, selling what furniture he could at a garage sale.
Everyone went just to look.
Our parents did not buy used furniture, and they certainly didn't buy furniture tainted by death.
We of course took the family photos that were put out with the trash.
Mr. Lisbon put the house on the market, and it was sold to a young couple from Boston.

It didn't matter in the end how old they had been, or that they were girls,
But only that we had loved them, and that they hadn't heard us call; still did not hear us,
Calling out of those rooms where they went to be alone for all time, alone in suicide,
Which is deeper than death, and where we will never find the pieced to put them back together.

Electronic performers

We are the syncronizers
Send messages through time code
Midi clock rings in my mind
Machines gave me some freedom
Synthesizers gave me some wings
They drop me through twelve bit samplers
We are electronic performers
We are electronics

We need to use envelope filters
To say how we feel
Riding on magnetic waves
We search new programs for your pleasure
I want to patch my soul on your brain
BPM controls yoour heartbeats
We are the syncronizers
We are electronic performers

How does it make you feel

I am feeling very warm right now
Please don't disappear
I am spacing out with you
You are the most beautiful entity that I've ever dreamed of

At night I will protect you in your dreams
I will be your angel
You worry so much about not having enough time together
It makes no difference to me
I would be happy with just one minute in your arms
Let's have an extended play together
You're telling me that we live to far to love each other
But your love can stretch further than you and I can see
So how does it make you feel?

How does it make you feel?
How does it make you feel?
How does it make you feel?
How does it make you feel?

Do you know when you look at me
It is a salvation
I've been waiting for you so long
I can drive on that road forever
I wish you could exist to live on my planet
Well it's very hard for me to say these things in your presence
So how does it make you feel?

How does it make you feel?
How does it make you feel?
How does it make you feel?
How does it make you feel?

So how does it make you feel?
Well,I really think you should quit smoking

The vagabond

( feat. Beck Hansen )

Golden waves
In all directions
I could lose my soul right here 
Colour lights
On the runway
Makes a stranger feel unchained 

I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine
Summer days will come happiness will be mine
I'm lost in my words I don't know where I'm going
I do the best I can not to worry about things 

I feel loose
I feel haggard
Don't know what I'm looking for 
Something true
Something lovely
That will make me feel alive 

I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine
Summer days will come happiness will be mine
I'm lost in my words I don't know where I'm going
I do the best I can not to worry about things 

Like a vagabond through the distance
Looking for a song to sing
A song that lasts all night
And for the rest of our lifes

I'm lost in my words I don't know where I'm going
I do my best I can not to worry about things 
I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine
(I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine)
Summer days will come happiness will be mine
(Summer days will come happiness will be mine)
I'm lost in my words I don't know where I'm going
(I'm lost in my words I don't know where I'm going)
I do the best I can not to worry about things 
(I do the best I can not to worry about things)

I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine
(I'm running after time and I miss the sunshine)
Summer days will come happiness will be mine
(Summer days will come happiness will be mine)

Oh, shit!

We bang on gold tamourines
In the cross hairs of some transient gun
Trading desires on the banquet line

The way you look tonight

( Japanese Bonus track ) 

I like the way you look tonight 
No blood in your vein, what does it mean ? 
Trashy art everywhere, on the screen 
Slow motion aftertaste, I've had foresight 

That's the way you look tonight 
I like the way you look tonight 

Free union rider in the sun 
Here comes the lord of audio beauty 
Do you really have a digital body ? 
People like you grim, lust for fun 

That's the way you look tonight 
The way you look tonight 
I like the way you look tonight 
The way you look tonight....

Venus

You could be from Venus
I could be from Mars
We would be together
Lovers forever
Care for each other

You could live in the sea
And I could be a bird
We would be together
Lovers forever
Care for each other

If you wear an illusion
I will make it real
We would be together
Lovers forever
Care for each other

If you walk in the sun
I will be your shadow
We would be together

Cherry Blossom Girl

I don't want to be shy
Can't stand it anymore
I just want to say 'Hi'

Cherry blossom girl

I feel sick all day long
From not being with you
I just want to go out

Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true

I never talk to you
People say that I should
I can pray everyday
For the moment to come
Cherry blossom girl

I just want to be sure
When I will come to you
When the time will be gone
You will be by my side
Cherry Blossom Girl

Tell me why can't it be true

I'll never love again
Can I say that to you
Will you run away
If I try to be true
Cherry blossom girl

Cherry blossom girl
I'll always be there for you
That means no time to waste
Whenever there's a chance
Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true

Stay with me
I feel sad
When you run

Sands of time

On my chest

Stay in bed
I feel sad
When you run

Stay like this
On the hills
Of my chest

Don't wake up
I feel strange
When you go

Stop the night
Hold me tight
Holy girl

Don't stand up
I feel strange
When you go

Once Upon A Time

No time before it’s too soon
No time after it’s too late
Time’s getting old, time’s over now
Don’t try to be on time
Don’t try to run after time
Time’s getting on, time’s over now

I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl
Once upon a time
I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl
Once upon a time
Time’s getting on, time’s over now
I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl
Once upon a time
I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl
Once upon a time
Time’s getting on, time’s over now

I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl

I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl
Once upon a time
Time’s getting on, time’s over now
I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl
Once upon a time
I’m a little boy, you’re a litte girl
Once upon a time

One Hell Of A Party

Please do not follow where I am leading
Someone must clear these things away
Here in the burnt out husk of the morning
Struck out with nothing left to say

Yeah this was one hell of a party
Nobody ever got to bed
But the morning after's killing me
And I have to rest my head

And just where were we trying to get to
I can't recall one single word
And the faces that pushed themselves before you
Congeal into one, nothing transferred

This was one hell of a party
And it's still living in my head
But the morning after shines so cold
So follow where I live

This was one hell of a party
Nobody got to go to bed
Let's face it now, it's over
But this morning after's killing me
And I have to rest my head

*** Thanx a lot to Damisco who corrected this one ***

How strange is your love
How strange is your love
How warm is your love

How tough is your love
How tough is your love
How tough is your love
How tough is your love
How tough is your love

Left Bank

Left bank, I'm waiting for someone
Someone to be my friend
Outside, traffic's running slowly
I hear it from my window

Without you, I'm getting lost
Without you, there's no release
I can't hold the sun
I can't hold the sun

It's raining, love is not around me
How can it get soak
Homesick, this is how I feel now
This is how you left me

Without you, I'm getting lost
Without you, there's no release
I can't hold the sun
I can't hold the sun

Without you, I'm getting lost
Without you, there's no release
I can't hold the sun
I can't hold the sun

Photograph

God would like to own your autograph
The angels cry to have your photograph

As if you were all sweetness and light
As fortune favours fools by candle light

God would like to own your autograph
The angels fight over your photograph

Put your record on the phonograph
Look at your position on the map

Mer Du Japon

J'en perds la raison

(I lost my mind)

Dans la mer du Japon

(in the sea of Japan)


J'en perds la raison
Dans la mer du Japon

Somewhere Between Waking And Sleeping

Without blindness, there is no sight
You'd see further if you'd only close your eyes
In unconsciousness I can find peace
Inside prison walls I can find release
There is a place that I have seen

Somewhere between waking and sleeping
Down at the water’s edge
Somebody waits for me
Is it too late for me
It's never too late, he says

[Left Channel]
Without blindness, there is no sight
You'd see further if you'd close your eyes
Unblock the failure
[Right Channel]
Without blindness, there is failure
People gather by the river
They were talking

There is a place that I have seen
Somewhere between waking and sleeping
Leaning over the side
Trailing my fingertips
Feeling the water slip
Into the quiet night

Viewed from the wrong end of a telescope
I see myself, so far below
Still and silent, rest in peace
The thread unravels
Merciful release

There is a place that I have seen
Somewhere between waking and sleeping
Now I can almost see
Figures upon the shore
He's gathering in the oars
Where are you taking me

*** Thanx a lot to Tom who corrected this one ***

Redhead Girl

When the redhead girl goes by
The course of time stands still
When the redhead girl goes by
Goes by
Goes by

When the redhead girl goes by
It's a dream with a blue knife
When the redhead girl goes by
Goes by ( X4 )

Love 2

Do The Joy

The world is on the brink
The brink of our extinction
The end of an era
The end of a genre
Do the joy, do, do, do
Do the shouts, do, do, do
Do the cries, do, do, do
Do the smiles, do, do the smiles
Building a sepulture and fading to the ground
Laughing on our ashes and holding our own lashes
Slapping all the species from all over the seas
Do the joy, do the joy, do the joy, do the joy
Do the shouts, do the shouts, do the shouts, do the shouts
Do the cries, do the cries, do the cries, do the cries
Do the smiles, do the smiles, do the smiles, do the smiles

Love

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love

So Light Is Her Footfall

So light is her footfall
She walks like a bird
She's an angel
Such a familiar stranger
I wish I could help her
She's in danger
She's all alone alone alone alone alone alone
All alone alone alone alone
So light is her footfall
She moves like a ghost
And I lost her
In the mist of dawn
She's already gone
And I miss her
She's all alone alone alone alone alone alone
All alone alone alone alone
And I miss her
And I miss her
She's all alone alone alone alone alone alone
All alone alone alone alone
So light was her footfall
So light was her footfall
So light was her footfall
So light was her footfall

Be A Bee

Be a Bee
Be be be a bee
Be a Bee
Be be be a bee
So many things I refuse to be
I'd like to be be a bee
So many things I refuse to be
Be a Bee
Be be be a bee
Be a Bee
Be be be a bee
So many things are bothering me
But you know bees are free
So many things I refuse to be
I'd like to be be a bee
I'd like to be be a bee
Be a bee
Be be be a bee
Be a Bee
Be be be a bee

Missing The Light of Day

Partying all night long
Sleeping around
Waking up so late
Missing the light of the day
The light of the day
Mixing bad people
Arguing with friends
Getting so much stress, getting so much stress,
Getting so much stress, getting so much stress
Missing the light of the day
The light of the day
Missing the light of the day
The light of the day
Partying all night long, partying all night long
Partying all night long,
Sleeping around, sleeping around, sleeping around
Waking up so late, waking up so late, waking up so late

Heaven's Light

On the way to the heaven's light
Where the time doesn't matter
You're so fine
Take my hand
Put me on the top of the world
On the way to the heaven's light
You were hiding behind the moon
You're so fine
You walk in my mind
Put me on the top of the world
On the way to the heaven's light
Things go up things go down
Our love stays around
Put me on the top of the world
On the way to the heaven's light
On the way to the heaven's light

Sing Sang Sung

You are such a workaholic boy
That you kill everybody's joy
Fill your head with some time to lose
With some time to lose

Sing sang sung sing me a song
Do did done don't be so down
Ring rang rung give me a ring
Please, please, please, don't be so long

What are we doing here my friend
Take a breath push your pain away
Nothing lasts it's better that way
It's better that way

Sing sang sung sing me a song
Do did done don't be so down
Ring rang rung give me a ring
Please, please, please, don't be so long

Sing sang sung sing me a song
Do did done don't be so down
Ring rang rung give me a ring
Please, please, please, don't be so long

You Can Tell It To Everybody

You can tell it to everybody
There is something between us
You can tell it to everybody
There is something going on between us
You can tell it to everybody
There is something between us
You can tell it to everybody
There is something going on between us

Le Voyage Dans La Lune

Seven Stars

( With Victoria Legrand )

How long will it take you
To reach the stars
No man in this desert
Or where you are
No one could escape this
Behold the rise
No hand nor companion
When you arrive
Would you ramble on
Up to the skies
No one for the taking
You will be mine
Forever you're willing
The seven stars
The seven stars

Twenty seconds and counting, fifteen seconds
Twelve, eleven, ten, ignition sequence starts
Six, five, four, three, two, one, zero

No man in this desert
Or where you are
Do you know where you're going
The seven stars
The seven, seven, the seven

Who Am I Now

( With Au Revoir Simone )

What do I know, where should I go
Telling me things that I can't see

Who am I now, je suis enfant
Who am I now, il y a longtemps
The light and the chills, fermer les cils
Open your ears, listening leaves

Distance device, crossing the line
Taken in kind, rêves jour et soir
Lost in a maze, je restais là
Transforming views, l'esprit confus

Who am I now, je suis enfant
Who am I now, il y a longtemps
The light and the chills, fermer les cils
Open your ears, listening leaves

Who am I now, je suis enfant
Who am I now, il y a longtemps
The light and the chills, fermer les cils
Open your ears, listening leaves


Cosmic Trip

Welcome to the astronomic club
The rocket shell is now ready to take off

It's better not to know

Dreams, gigantic stars
Comets and meteors
Enormous mushrooms
Volcanic explosions

All of you will be back home safely
So don't hesitate, join us with no fear
On our fantastic trip to the moon

Non Albums Tracks

Easy going woman

Don't let the routine kill our life
Do you still want to be by my side
Remember the time we were both right
Like on the photos that you hide

Alright, alright, alright, alright
Just be an easy going woman
Alright
Easy going woman

I tried so hard to please you
That i forgot my own happiness - happiness
Don't play that game like you used to do
Do you believe what you say - what you say

Alright, alright, alright, alright
Just be an easy going woman
Alright
Easy going woman

I still believe that people can change
Please let me know if you want me to
How many years do we have to wait
For understanding each other - each other

Alright, alright, alright, alright
Just be an easy going woman
Alright
Easy going woman

Alright, alright, alright, alright
Just be an easy going woman
Alright
Easy going woman

*** Thanx a lot to Tera for this one ***

Jeanne

Jeanne met toutes ses billes dans la course au pouvoir, 
Au succès Jeanne n'est pas à cours de ressources pour séduire qui lui plaît
Jeanne connaît bien l'art des retouches et l'envers du décor 
Elle corrige la forme de sa bouche, les lignes de son corps 

Petite Jeanne deviendra grande quand ses rêves auront changé 
Petite Jeanne deviendra forte quand ses jouets préfabriqués s‘ront usés 
Jeanne aim‘rait dîner au champagne tous les soirs de l‘année 
Eclipser les autres par son charme, son talent, ses idées 
Jeanne voudrait avoir à ses pieds des amants riches et beaux 
Au bras de qui elle sourirait à la une des journaux 

Petite Jeanne deviendra grande quand ses rêves auront changé 
Petite Jeanne deviendra forte quand ses jouets préfabriqués seront cassés 
Jeanne voudrait dormir dans la soie, le velours, le satin 
Jeanne en veut, fait tout, croisent les doigts pour aider le destin 
Non, Jeanne n'a pas besoin qu'on lui fasse un dessin.
