I must have been in one foul mood the first time I heard this and dished out a 2. Bumped to 7, probably higher next time. Here's to better moods.
Cheers for better moods! Friends don't let friends rate songs while grumpy... no need to add negativity to the world.
Unless a song really sucks, of course
Leaving my rating at 8,

If only. Kate Bush made and continues to make interesting music. Vienna sings nicely and her piano playing is good, but her music is in the end pretty forgettable.
Have to say I agree with Hannio, Proclivities, and Ziggytrix. Enjoy listening to Vienna Teng and own a few of her albums. However, it is ultimately pretty forgettable for me (except for "Passage", find myself singing that to myself from time to time, hmm).
Also, I'm not familiar with Augustine, but I was expecting to hear Tori

I cannot sing to save my life. I would so love to be able to stand in an open space and cut loose like this; I'd imagine it would be very liberating. I love Flo's voice. :)
+1. I imagine it's an awesome feeling. I always enjoy the energy in Florence and her Machine's music.
I just don't get all the hate on her music... I hear some music on here that doesn't push my buttons. I just chill out and let it pass.

I never get tired of hearing PT. Replace every Florence song on the playlist with a PT song and we're perfect.
Second the opinion on Porcupine Tree... but keep Florence on the soundtrack too!

this song is best described as a casserole of nonsense.
+1 for this description.
I do have to say the song grew on me by the end. I'm still reserving my vote, though...

Ejfalgo, there are 1000's of internet stations. I've been an RP fan for 10 years. My most favorite station period. The dynamic of music played here is amazing!
Not my favorite song, but sure brings back memories.

When I tune into RP and hear songs like this—hits from yesteryear that were simply beaten to death on FM radio—I worry that Radio Paradise is trending towards a very middle-of-the-road oldies station.
I really liked this song when it came out and still do, but it's a very safe choice. Queen put out more than 5-10 songs over their career. RP should a place where you hear the lesser-known-but-still-good works by Freddie and the gang. This song has been played way too much in my lifetime—though perhaps not here, admittedly.
Radio PAradise is one of my favorite stations—I don't even bother listening to FM because of it and a few other Web radio stations. After I finish whining here, I'm off to donate some money to RP. There are times, though, when I feel compelled to cough politely in Bill and Rebecca's direction and raise my mild concern.
I have to counter this with an appreciation that Bill and Rebecca have the balls to play a few mainstream tunes that are decent. Hard balance to strike, for sure, but I like what he's done so far! Second the comment that this is nearly the only thing I listen to anymore (definitely no commercial FM anymore, though I do enjoy some of the music on our NPR station).
That said, this song does absolutely nothing for me

|Still love the Counting Crows, and this song is particularly good. Might the stage of life or something, but I don't really care. Enjoy nearly all of their songs (at least the first two albums).|

Maybe, in light of this song, I should re-submit a couple of EBTG songs. I really love their stuff. My friend sent me the CD of "Amplified Heart," and it's STILL in my CD player, in rotation.
I like this song, too - Ms. Thorn's vocals are wonderful when backed with Massive Attack's instruments and quirky timing. Yep - good song. To quote Romeotuma (who has been scarily absent lately!), this song is SO good for the ears....
Yeah, actually pulled up the playlist to see if this was EBTG... Looks like they've been played recently! Throw my vote in for more EBTG.

Vienna Teng makes some great music, but I find it a bit of a downer if I listen to too much in a row :) I have to kind of agree with the Tori Amos comment below on this song, I thought "Tori Amos" when I heard the first few bars. I haven't gotten that vibe from any of Vienna Teng's other work (I'm not a big anti-derivative-bigot though).

Ecclesiarchy--a society led by the clergy. It seems as if they're trying to say...uh, well I still haven't got a clue.
The greek root of Ekklesia essentially means a "gathering of citizens" or a "gathering of those called-out", generally referring to the "body of the church" when used throughout the Bible.
Good question on what this means... A society led by members of the church? A society led by a large group of people? Is it only led when they're gathered in a specific place? Seems somewhat ambiguous :) Perhaps it's an extremely hands-on implementation of a democracy...
