Hi friends!

We've already reached the fifth track of this music club endeavour and this time we've done something we rarely do: recorded a cover song!

So here it is, fully Violated and translated to English: TV-Resistori's ever-so-wonderful 'Näen tanssivan sun uudestaan'!

As some of you might know, we've done quite a few covers (you can find a badly out of date list from pophurts.com), but we have a policy regarding them: we've never played and never will play a cover live for more than once.

We've also always been very hesitant towards recording covers. Actually we've only done it once before as we covered Iconcrash's Chains Around My Heart on our split ep with them in 2004 and even that was kind of disputable as Iconcrash's own version was actually released way after we did the cover as it was based on a private demo.

So in a way this is our first cover. At least of a track hopefully you people have heard before. If you haven't, please make yourselves familiar with "Respa" as soon as possible as they're easily one of Finland's finest indie pop acts! They've had a new album in the works for quite some time and hopefully they can get it done fast!

Anyway, thanks for sticking up with our shenanigans. For those of you, who are getting weary of the dance floor mania we've had going on lately, I hope you'll be happy to know that next month's track will (at least according to our grand plans) be a pretty classic dream pop endeavour!

'Til then, take care!!!

Tommi

Lyrics

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
You move, you move me so
Let the music flow

Hey baby, just don't stop
I'm your captive on the dance floor
I want to see much more

I can't keep up with you
I get out of step
This is too much
Make-up's running down.

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
A kiss is what I'm longing for
One look and I'm all yours

Hey baby, just don't stop
The night is young
oh no
I'm already getting slow

Do I have to keep going on
Don't you already know
you have to take me
home with you

Oh how you dance
You have to take me

Oh how you dance
This is too much

Oh how you dance
You have to take me
home with you

Hi!! :D I love this song and I think you did a great cover :D and I would like to hear TV resistori's version as well, but I can't find anything...but it's ok. (:
I always thought that "Chains around my heart" was by you hahaha, now I've realized it isn't :P
I've seen your covers list, and I'd love to hear all of them! they look so interesting! *-* well, Good luck and Congrats for this one :) well done.

Hi Claudia! Thanks for liking

Hi Claudia!

Thanks for liking the track.

Yeah, the original doesn't seem to be anywhere on the internet! It's a shame, since it's AMAZING! But then again, most everything by TV-Resistori is!

Chains Around My Heart is in many ways by you, since our version and the one eventually recorded by Iconcrash have very little to do with each other. We got a really early demo draft of the track from Jaani (of Iconcrash) and changed it very thoroughly for our own version and then he ended up changing his own version even further for the version they ended up recording! The lyrics are - more or less - the same, but musically they really don't have anything in common. :)

The covers list... damn that's out of date. We need to get on it tout de suite!

I really love your music and

I really love your music and I'm always asking myself, why don't you have a MySpace page? I think it would be nice...
Greetings from Italy!

Yep, Lassi has it right. I'm

Yep, Lassi has it right. I'm afraid we'll have to wait until we're the only band in the world without a MySpace. Then we can join.

No rationale behind this. After all, we are in all the other services, but MySpace we skipped for one reason or another.

I really really really hope you'll continue to love our music nonetheless!

Thanks for the comment!

If I remember correctly,

If I remember correctly, Viola had a commitment of being the last band on Earth to be on MySpace. :)

Mahtavaa! Majesteettiset

Mahtavaa! Majesteettiset synatomit jäivät tosin veks, mutta ehkä niille taas tilaa löytyy jostain. Takatukkani muuten hulmuaa tuulessa tätä kirjoittaessa.
