I've been let down
And I'm still coming round
I've been pulled down
And I'm still coming round for you
Coming round for you

Take away everything that feels fine
Catch a shape in the circles of my mind
Make me feel like I belong to you
Make me feel it even if it ain't true

Catch a train on a silver afternoon
A thousand miles and I'm gettin' there too soon
Take me there, when I should be going home
Tell me why I'm still feeling (all) alone

I've been let down
And I'm still coming round
I've been pulled down
And I'm still coming round for you
Coming round for you

RIP David
Have not heard this one before.   It makes me so happy.

I can tell you as a drummer that's performed in a lot of clubs - it was a club. People were drinking. You're not going to expect them to siddown and shaddap politely like it's a Yo Yo Ma recital.

You just play well and hope for the best. 

Totally agree - a complete album.

Most only know Mazzy Star from their "Fade Into You" single.  However, I have always thought that their follow up album Among My Swan was a great piece of work.  Thanks RP for playing one of my favorite tracks from the album.

Never cared much for Mazzy Star when I first started listening to RP - she always sounds like she's slightly drunk.  But I think finally, she's growing on me.  A 7 for this, for now.

 
It's not the singer's name you know...

One of my favorites!
Hey Hope...that makes two of us.

so Hope Sandoval (aka Mazzy Star) is playing a show at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston... and the crowd is getting restless... it is a very dimly lit show (at the artist's request) and a lot of people were there to see Hope b/c they heard she was cute... not a shadow on stage.. so a bit into the show a quiet crowd started chit-chatting, drinking at the bar and what-not. Mazzy stopped the show and started complaining about the crowd being too loud. Someone shouted out "We love you Hope!" to which she replied: "I don't need you to love me. I need you to SHUT THE F**K UP!" Amazingly bizarre moment out of all the live shows I've worked/seen. Almost the whole crowd turned on her. She was very apologetic after the show and is a TOTAL SWEETHEART in person. Just an off night I guess.

Damn, this woman is sexy!
Someday, if I'm lucky, Mazzy Star will sing me a lullaby. I mean that as a compliment.
They have a good sound. {#Clap}   Trouble is, every song sounds exactly the same. {#Ask}

I'll get me coat.

 
That's very silly indeed {#Roflol}

All Your Sisters and brothers love your music

A voice that just melts my brain housing group.  I discovered her while watching the psychological thriller, Down in the Valley, with Ed Norton (that movie is a discussion in itself).  Mazzy Star sang the theme song, and after the movie I ran right out and purchased three of Hope's CDs as well as googled the band to learn all about it.  Not only does her wavy, sensuous voice enthrall me, but she is a gorgeous Latina from LA, which, for some reason, strikes me as an unlikely possibility.
 
Huh?  What part is unlikely?

She was probably just getting in the right mindset for a potential upcoming tour with Oasis and Amy Winehouse.

candid, inspirer and very talent voice -   7 / 8.
I always wondered if she is the offspring of Arturo Sandoval....?

I think you mean "got all their albums" and "still love them dearly"
I know I've hears her lots of times on RP but I cant name or remember one of her songs. I just recognize the name.
