Music Monday: “O.N.E.” by Yeasayer (From the FIFA 2011 Soundtrack)

Every Monday, we highlight one song that you may not have heard of, may not have heard in ages, or one that we just can’t seem to get out of our heads. Enjoy!

I’ve been listening to this song, “O.N.E.” by Yeasayer, basically on repeat all week. Kevin’s working on a cool feature about video game music (keep an eye out later this week!) and this was one of the first songs that locked it’s spot on his list. It’s catchy, got a crazy music video, and is so upbeat it just makes you want to keep playing the game.

 Check out the tune here:

Full “O.N.E.” Lyrics: 

One’s not enough
I won’t stop ’til I’ve given you up
Here, right as I am, it’s hard having fun
It’s much easier said than it’s done

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

No, you don’t move me anymore
And I’m glad that you don’t
‘Cause I can’t have you anymore

But I thought you should know
You don’t move me anymore
And I’m glad that you don’t
‘Cause I can’t take it anymore, oh

The room’s still now when I’m lying
‘Cause the well of the night has gone dry
When they ask to behave I paid them no mind
Now I doubt if I’d have been so kind

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

No, you don’t move me anymore
And I’m glad that you don’t
‘Cause I can’t have you anymore

But I thought you should know
You don’t move me anymore
And I’m glad that you don’t
‘Cause I can’t take it anymore, oh

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

Hold me like before
Hold me like you used to
Control me like you used to

No, you don’t move me anymore
And I’m glad that you don’t
‘Cause I can’t have you anymore

But I thought you should know
You don’t move me anymore
And I’m glad that you don’t
‘Cause I can’t take it anymore
But I found you should know

It feels like being tranquilized
I know the separation kills us so
But I won’t stop falling like raindrops
Because I like it when you lose control

But I thought you should know
(It feels like being tranquilized)
You don’t move me anymore
(I know the separation kills us so)

I’m glad that you don’t
(But I won’t stop falling like raindrops)
‘Cause I can’t take it anymore
(Because I like it when you lose control)

But I thought you should know
(It feels like being tranquilized)
You don’t move me anymore
(I know the separation kills us so)

I’m glad that you don’t
(But I won’t stop falling like raindrops)
‘Cause I can’t take it anymore
(Because I like it when you lose control)

But I thought you should know
(It feels like being tranquilized)
You don’t move me anymore
(I know the separation kills us so)
