Darts of Pleasure (4:01)

Cover of Franz Ferdinand

From Franz Ferdinand and 33 other releases

Darts of Pleasure is the debut EP by the indie rock band Franz Ferdinand, released in the United Kingdom on 8 September 2003 and in North America on 18 November 2003, both through Domino Records.

Alex Kapranos explained to Q magazine that “the song is about seduction and the Darts Of Pleasure that hit you are actually words.”

The song ends with several lyrics in German, most famously the line “Ich heiße Super Fantastisch!” (“My name is Super-Fantastic!”, whereas “Super-Fantastic” is the name, not an adjective. Although variations in the German language occur, creating the true meaning to be “I am called Super-Fantastic!”).
