    "Remind Me" (and in late 2002 "Remind Me"/"So Easy") is a song by Norwegian duo Röyksopp, released as their fourth single. The single version of "Remind Me" is substantially different from the album version (it is more upbeat and has more vocals). The vocals on "Remind Me" are sung by Erlend Øye. "Remind Me" (Someone Else's Club Mix) is currently being used in the soundtrack for Sephora stores. The song was also used in a September 2006 U.S. commercial for GEICO.

    After "So Easy" gained popularity after it was used in a T-Mobile advert in the UK, the single was re-released, with "Remind Me" as the A-Side and "So Easy" as the B-side.

    Response

    The single was released in July 2002 a few weeks before the album was officially released August 12, 2002. When the single was released in U.K. it reached #21 on the UK Singles Chart.

    GEICO Commercial

    In the fourth GEICO caveman-themed commercial, a caveman is on a moving sidewalk at an airport. He spots a billboard for GEICO featuring an overly silly representation of a caveman, along with the insulting phrase, "So easy, a caveman could do it." "Remind Me" plays in the background throughout.

    Music video

    The song "Remind Me" is also famous for its animated video, directed by the French motion graphics studio H5. It features a day in the life of a woman working in the London's Square Mile solely through infographics; this includes labelled close-ups of everyday objects, product lifecycles, schematic diagrams, charts, and is generally illustrated in a simple isometric visual style."Someone Else's Radio Mix" is used for the audio track, instead of the original release.This style has been imitated in multiple television commercials since the music video, for example a commercial for Areva.
