His new record, ‘Justus Köhncke & The Wonderful Frequency Band’, was already in production when one man band Justus recorded this track about the clumsiness of perception. Justus recorded the song about the curious phenomenon of perceptual blindness at the last minute when another song on the record, a cover version of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Got to Give It Up’, had to go because of a publishing dispute with the Gaye family. This seductive track is just one a many geile numbers.

Unaufmersamkeitsblindheit

Unaufmersamkeitsblindheit
wie konnte ich ihn übersehen?
Unaufmerksamkeitsblindheit
Du bist ein Phänomen
Er stand da wie ein Geschenk
Ich sah ihn nicht
mein Blick beschränkt
allein auf das, was ich sehen soll
warum ist Wahrnehmung so ungelenk?

Unaufmersamkeitsblindheit
Unaufmersamkeitsblindheit
Unaufmersamkeitsblindheit

English translation

Inattentional blindness
Inattentional blindness
Inattentional blindness
Inattentional blindness

Inattentional blindness
How could I overlook him?
Inattentional blindness
You are a phenomenon
He stood there
just like a gift
I did not see him
my view adrift
reduced to just what I have to see
Why is perception sometimes so miffed?

Inattentional blindness
Inattentional blindness
Inattentional blindness
Inattentional blindness
