The Top Ten
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.
So good, yet so brief...it's like a beautiful moment that never outstays it's welcome.
It's just so catchy and satisfying
A song so groovy that even non-BoC fans can't resist.
This is brilliant! I love the perfect Ballance of comfort and eerieness. I know it's an obvious choice for number one, but still, what else would be worthy of that spot?
How is this not top? It's the perfect example of Boc. Its very comforting but also eerie at the same time. This is a masterpiece! - Slipperyjack40
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 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
Very little progression but I love every second of it. Gets better each time I hear it. - Slipperyjack40
It's so hard to pin down exactly how this song makes you feel, but one thing is certain: it's absolutely beautiful.

When the melody comes in, its amazing. Extremely underrated, - Slipperyjack40
Should be #1
This genuinely means something to me in my life.
The atmosphere tho
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
