They are to be commended for releasing the same song over and over and over again.... and making lots of money doing it.
So do you think they are doing that on purpose? I assumed that they didn't realize that all of their songs sound exactly the same (unlike the rest of the planet).

Nope, this has remained un-muted, because it's a ho-hum instrumental without the dire warbling of Townsend and Daltry - in one ear and out the other. As for your prize, get yourself photographed in that alley with a grotty parka and maybe you'll be in with a shout :)
The 'casio-style' dee-de-dee-dee in the background is just so reminiscent of the Stonehenge scene in Spinal Tap :o)
Ah, right, now the mute hits - that blasted Love Reign O'er Me is next. Love the rain, shame about the pretentious noodling and warbling...

This song, with Tarantino's direction, and Hayek's sensuality was the most erotic scene I have ever seen in the movies. I wanted to go back to drinking/drugging after 28 yrs sober if I could find this bar: perfect place to drink tequilla and do acid.
Yes but the attacking vampires would be a major buzz-kill.

I was about to slam this song, but then I realized that this is the stripped-down, stark, real version of it, without the "hahaha - bless my soul!" histrionics that, for me, distracted me from the actual lyrics. I like the Gnarls Barkley version for its danceability and sense of fun. And now, I like the Shawn Colvin rendition for the eerie, skeletal viewpoint.
Good song, whoever's version I hear.
I appreciate these observations. I too really disliked that "hahaha - bless my soul" in the original because it seemed like nonsense filler, but it is an otherwise great song.

Can anyone tell me what song RP played this past Friday evening....by Beth Orton (duet) It was great and I can't seem to find it on the RP playlist.
Last.fm says this album was released 10 Mar 2003.
It is what passes for a B side on the For What It's Worth maxi-single shown in the header. Damn hard to find and damn fine.

Some day you have to (or, maybe you already have) write a book (or comment) on what goes on in your Las Vegas hotel room. So many questions...like, why do you live in a hotel room? Why are there always people there, dancing? Is all of this merriment somehow related to work? My imagination has run wild with possible scenarios, but I'm guessing the truth is somewhat mundane. Some help would be appreciated. -Nosey in New York
Yes, and like, are these other people the same people all the time, or do different people come and go? Are you all talking or doing something other than listening and dancing, or are you all just listening and dancing all day? And what do you all do when that downer "Mad World" song comes on? Certainly can't dance to that. . .

I totally agree. The title track is really bad. The other tracks I have heard are better, but do not compare to their earlier stuff.

their zany stuff was brilliant and their attempts at mainstream were often appalling.
Sometimes I think Tim Finn didn't quite realize how off the wall he actually is. He seems to have spent his life struggling to be accepted as normal (which his brother achieves effortlessly because he's well, he's Neil). Tim is somehow tragically flawed but that is precisely the source of his brilliance. Without him I doubt Neil would have ever have had a career in music.
It is interesting that what is arguably Crowded House's best album - Woodface- is the one where Tim joined the band.
