4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Boy July 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Sexy Boy" is what got me into the French duo Air. I was first exposed to this song when I actually saw the video on MTV back in the late '90s (when MTV still played music videos) and it was during the daytime too. I wasn't really into dance music at the time so this was completely a new sound for me in terms of dance music. I just flipped over the infectious melodies and synthesized dance beats. I didn't mind the repetitive lyrics so much. I just loved the melody and I still do to this very day. So I bought the single (another relic from the past) which contained remixes of "Sexy Boy" and a previously unreleased track called "Jeanne". The remixes weren't bad but I definitely preferred the original version of the song. Of all the remixes, I have to say that the Etienne De Crecy & The Flower Pistols remix is my favorite of the three. It stayed closest to the original version. As for the b-side "Jeanne", I definitely enjoyed that song. The airy, acoustic melodies of the song was a nice contrast from the mechanical feelings of "Sexy Boy". The female vocals were a nice touch. A gorgeous song overall. Despite its flaws, I like to pop in this single every now and then.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for Jeanne March 9 2004
By JR
Format:Audio CD
This really isn't a particularly great single because it is mostly made up of remixes and remixes are always a waste of your time and money, no matter who's doing them. However, Air are one of my favourite groups, and when I saw that they had done a track (Jeanne) with Francoise Hardy (someone who I have more than a passing interest in), I had to check it out. This song is a little gem, just what b-sides should be like. Why can't Air put more quality b-sides on their singles instead of all the remixes, to give their fans more value for their money? All in all, definitely worth it if you are an Air fan, since Jeanne is one of their best (it is sung in French though, for those who don't know). The Beck remix is the best of the rest, in case you're wondering.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great song - good remixes May 17 2002
By Westley
Format:Audio CD
I got turned onto Air a few years ago when I heard that Madonna liked them, and I've become a big fan too. "Sexy Boy" is definitely one of Air's catchiest songs, and about as close to pop-dance as they get. It sounds terrific on their debut album (Moon Safari), and the remixes here are very good. The highlight is the Sex Kino mix, which was done by Beck. It includes an odd sound bite of a person biting into an apple (?). It's kind of bizarre, but it works and really does sound sexy. In addition to these remixes, Air includes a B-side - "Jeanne." The lyrics are sung in French by Francoise Hardy, and it fits in nicely with their overall sound. If you like "Sexy Boy," then please check out "Moon Safari," which is one of the best techno albums ever.

2.0 out of 5 stars remixes not that great... June 22 1999
Format:Audio CD
Being a HUGE Air fan, I have to say that I was disappointed in the Sexy Boy single after listening to the remixes and discovering that they are nowhere near as interesting as the original version. Especially the Beck remix, which I had high expectations about, for obvious reasons. However, the other b-side, Jeanne, is great- a vocal tune (most of Air's stuff is instrumental) that has that familiar, more mainstream, less experimental French-love-song feel to it. It can also be found on the Pop Romantique: French Pop Classics compilation CD. If you're a diehard Air fan like me, it's definately worth getting, but otherwise, pass.
