Best Boards of Canada Songs

The best songs made by the Scottish electronic band, Boards of Canada.

The Top Ten

1 Everything You Do is a Balloon

This is the most famous song that BoC have ever made. It was also the first I heard of them and made me a big fan of this duo. That intro is just magical, gives me indescribable feelings of nostalgia. Everything sounds like old... And the darkness of the second part is amazing, that cold atmosphere is captivating.

2 Dayvan Cowboy

This gotta be one of the best songs to listen on those days when you feel really nostalgic. It proved that BoC can also leave the synths and do music with the same essence and substance of their previous albums but trying new genres like folk. First part of this song is amazing and serves as a crescendo that leads to the second part, which is even better.

3 Roygbiv

Clearly one of the best songs of BoC. It is weird, unique and captivating, like most of his songs, but actually combining layers. Well, actually, like the title says (ROYGBIV is a common mnemonic for the colours of the rainbow), this one has different vibes mixed: it is positive and happy but dark and nostalgic at the same time. Also, I always hear this song along with "Bocuma", that is amazing as well and serves as a perfect intro.

A song so groovy that even non-BoC fans can't resist.

4 In a Beautiful Place Out In the Country

I recently discovered this song, and it's been my favorite since. I love the creepy, atmospheric tone.

It's so hard to pin down exactly how this song makes you feel, but one thing is certain: it's absolutely beautiful.
