The Top Ten
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.
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.
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.
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.

This is the type of trippy stuff you'd come across on a long trip towards a distant red giant. Super bright and massive sounding, bringing out the most ethereal burst of energy. Like a star ready to unleash everything in a supernova - cjWriter1997
Pure Boards of Canada in every respect. A retrospective and nostalgic track that effortlessly drones from one section to another, revealing complex layers of textured melodies. Beautiful and morose in equal measure. My favourite track from my favourite of their 4 albums
Deserves to be in the top 5 I feel
This genuinely means something to me in my life.
By far their most underrated song. Mysterious vibes of melancholy and nostalgia garnish this simple yet emotional song.
