These people have the same vibe as the Dutch band My Baby, bluesy, danceable. Love it!

Agreed, or almost anything by Big Country
Stands the test of time. Absolutely.
Had no idea these guys were Canadian.

Cool, eh

It sounded like Yoshida Bros! What? You're kidding, right? They play Japanese shamisen
 

This could sound amazing with Japanese shamisen.
nice!
I just went looking for this one on YouTube yesterday!
8===>9
VG Annie Lennox-like background vocals.
Upped it from a 9 to a 10.  Got those shoulders rocking and hips movin in my chair.  Whoo hoo!
Luv it {#Music}

Oh, brother. Last year, I gave my students the option of using this among five other tunes as a music project to create a video through Creative Commons licensing. About TWENTY of the 28 kids chose THIS tune! I had to edit, review, assess their videos ... listened to this song dozens of times. I would never have thought I'd hear it here!
Here's an example of the students' work, if you have a moment.

My daughter, a struggling artist, making her way through the muck of the business. Wish she'd catch a break. 
 
You're a very good and talented Father Mike
I hope your daughter catches a break and does music for a living......if not,she still is blessed with talent. 
Not a good set!

Midnight oil should 'have a word'
Annie!{#Dancingbanana}

Everyone at my bridge club loves this song!

First heard this song right here in 2001. Thanks RP!

Good thing litigiousness was not your career choice, because that is a highly dubious parallel.  I say that as a fan of both Euphoria and the Oils.  
 
my bed is burning...
..i might as well start this one at an 8, since i can tell it'll reach that on my scale sooner or later..

Was THAT your daughter's work??  Wow.  I love the song, but those visuals are awesome. I hope she catches a wave and rides it to paradise - she's got a wonderful vision. Did she take those pics? DETAILS, dammit! I want details. I know people who might be able to help, if they think she's got some talent.

Oh yes! I love this song, as well as many other offerings from Euphoria.
I used it in my promo video, take a look!
It's available in 1080p, watch it fullscreen!

Rene & Renato - I can totally hear that.

I guess that could classify this band as "eclectic".

Dude, are you even listening to the guitars?  No one was doing that in 80s electronica.  Methinks you're just fixated on the drums.

Had to crank this one too to appreciate the groove. Maybe I am listening to my music too low
Wow, this grooves. {#Dance}

I really love the beat. 9/10

Go ahead you "this sounds like" people. Everyone sounds like someone else. Regardless of who sounds like whom, I find most of Euphoria crisp and refreshing. So to me they sound like a freshly made salad. Delicious.

Just makes me want to get in the car and drive fast for a long time, with no interruptions...

I think you mean "Dead Heart".
Love it, but concerned about other listeners' comments of the group's inconsistency. Anybody else care to add to that assertion? Visited the details already and cannot find really discerning commentaries.
Cooks right along.
First time I've heard this. Outstanding!
Y e S! Can't get enough of this!!

Snoop Dogg brought it back in recent years, starting with some of his songs on Doggystyle, and continuing through his more current albums.
And every moron with a half-assed marketing degree thinks it works in every second commercial. Kill it! It stinks!

It means "for sure". The etymology comes originally from a word game that was first exposed in pop music in the song "Double Dutch Bus" in which they play the game on some kids' names. Snoop Dogg brought it back in recent years, starting with some of his songs on Doggystyle, and continuing through his more current albums.
This is ''Old Joe Clark'' with a twist.

OK. This one has been played WAY TO MUCH. I am sick of it. It is an ok tune, but over and over everyday...Please.. Not as often on the playlist...
Rocks your socks off. :)

ooo baby! Went out and bought this one right up! B
That female vocal part sounds JUST like a tune from RR's RED ROAD ENSEMBLE, nice. 8.

Euphoria can be inconsistent, but this is one of their better cuts.

No, "Dead Heart" has lyrics, and doesn't feel like a broken record. Like this does.
