Laid is the fifth studio album by British alternative rock band James. It was released on 5 October 1993. It was the first of several collaborations between the group and Brian Eno, who produced all but one of the album's tracks – in Stuart Maconie's authorised biography of the group, Folklore, they admitted that Eno didn't like the song "One of the Three" so they recorded it when he took a day off. The sessions also resulted in the experimental Wah Wah album.
"Laid" is the title song from Manchester alternative rock band James' 1993 album Laid. Emotionally evocative and featuring the risqué lyrics "This bed is on fire with passionate love, the neighbours complain about the noises above, but she only comes when she's on top", it quickly gained popularity on American college radio and remains the group's best-known song in the USA. The American release of its music video would, however, go on to replace the ending of its opening lyrics with "she only sings when she's on top" (although Tim Booth is seen to lip-sync the original line, and is accompanied by a subtitle reading "hums"). Today, a number of alternative rock stations, including Boston's RadioBDC, WBOS, Maryland's WRNR-FM, Chicago's WXRT and Philadelphia's WRFF will play "Laid" with the original controversial line.
While the song did chart on the Billboard Hot 100, its initial peak was #61. It made it on to the chart thanks to its cult status as a popular college song, which is what helped it to peak at #3 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song was much more successful in the band's native United Kingdom, where it peaked at number 25, becoming another Top 40 hit for the band before it was released in the United States.
LAID AS or simply Laid is based in Oslo, Norway. It is the first and only Norwegian company to design and manufacture sex toys. It was founded by Industrial Designer Line Iren Andersen and Business Graduate Karianne Rønning in 2007. The company was formed on the basis of Andersen’s Master’s degree project in Industrial Design at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design where she designed a sex toy set for couples. The fundamental thought in Andersen’s designs and following vision for the company, is to let form and design overcome the taboos that hinder the availability and purchase of sex toys. The company was formally registered in 2009 and introduced its first products in 2010. Its visual identity and communication has been developed by Skin Designstudio Through this successful collaboration Laid has received the Norwegian Design Council’s Award for Design Excellence (2010) and won Silver at the European Design Awards (2010) for its packaging, as well as Red Dot Design Award for Communication.
