Pikachu – Incredible song from De Staat (so true!)

Pikachu – Incredible song from De Staat (so true!)

Yesterday – we shared some valuable (but clearly obvious) insight about technology – and how it’s affecting humans in society. Moving so fast that most of us cannot even comprehend or even recognize what is happening. Which is why this awesome new song from Dutch band De Staat, “Pikachu” is so amazing.

1. It has incredible “club” beats from the 90’s era. But it’s not a mindless club song. Most instruments were manual – with digital effects.

2. It treats cell phone usage as a comical addiction or perverse oddity. Especially the voyeuristic aspect of “Instagram” and how it consumes brain-dead people all over.

3. Just perfect in its madness.

De Staat talks about Pikachu – and how it was recorded

For their latest album, De Staat recorded a video discussion about their latest album, track by track.

Here is what they say about Pikachu – and the meaning behind it (see lyrics at the end). Love these guys more than any “new” band in the past two decades or more. So happy we discovered them in America.

Before anyone “judges” this band – you have to go back and listen to all their releases completely. Their range is phenomenal. Our downright favorite band this year – and probably for years to come. Doubt any “new” artist can even come close to replicating how much we love De Staat.

We’ve written several times in the recent past about De Staat Our initial review – and a fun “Christmas” song “Let it Snow.”

If you give them a shot – you’ll be in for a refreshing treat not available in America today. If you don’t – well, sorry, your loss!

PIKACHU LYRICS – DE STAAT

One Two Pikachu
Wanna peek at you
Cause I’m a looky boy
Lookie-loo puppy with a toy
You know you’re all good Hollywood
Party like you should
I’ll be that quiet boy in the back
Quiet in the back

Whip it, Whip it, Whip it out
Tap it, I’m good to go
Pikachu
Whip it, Whip it, Whip it out
Tap it, and I’m good to go
Pikachu

One Two Pikachu
What you gonna do
I’m gonna hit you up
Type you in
Tap and follow you
Cause you in top ten
One percent
Living like you can
I’m at the window looking in
Window looking in

Whip it, Whip it, Whip it out
Tap it, I’m good to go
Pikachu
Whip it, Whip it, Whip it out
Tap it, and I’m good to go

Cause I’m a quiet boy
The quiet don’t fit the club
Find me at the window looking in

One Two Pikachu
Wanna Pikachu
I’m on the outside different place
Staring at your face
You know it’s all good Hollywood
Party like you should
I’m at the window licking in
Finger licking in

Pikachu

I’m at the bus stop

Outside the club

I’m in the bathroom
Pikachu
In bed at night

Whip it, Whip it, Whip it, Whip it
Whip it, Whip it, Whip it out
Tap it, I’m good to go

Whip it, Whip it, Whip it out
Tap it, I’m good to go
