"Sunchyme" is the debut single by British electronic music trio Dario G. It was released on 15 September 1997 as the lead single from their debut studio album, Sunmachine (1998), although early editions were stated to be from an album named Super Dario Land.[2] The song heavily samples the track "Life in a Northern Town" by dream pop band The Dream Academy.

The song reached the top 5 position in many European music charts. It also topped the Dance Club Songs chart in the United States following its release there in May 1998. In the United Kingdom, the song peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart whilst Elton John's "Candle in the Wind 1997" was at number one. This was the largest difference in sales between a number-one and number two song on the chart.

The English football club F.C. Halifax Town plays the song before home games at The Shay.

Music video[edit]

The music video of this song features a tribe of African people having their bodies covered with colourful paint to portray the animals of their native land. Later, they jump into a river to wash away the paint.
