How come you never go there?
How come I'm so alone there?

I went up to the window
Lightning banging on the cymbals
I ripped into the night
Came storm into your eyes

My horse had worked the fields too long
My bear had lost his innate calm
It's true enough we're not at peace
But peace is never what it seems

Our love is not the light it was
When I walk inside the dark I'm calm
While we look for where it went
It's only echoes in the melody

How come you never go there?
How come I'm so alone there?

We waste time on blame and weak revenge
Waste energy on projections
We're living proof we've got an echo
And stop looking through the halo

We carry on as if the time is through
You carry on as if I don't love you
And so we find the way to die
To cut the heart out of the doubt now

The room's full but hearts are empty
Like the letters never sent me
Words are like a lasso
But you're an instrumental tune

How come you never go there?
How come I'm so alone there?

I always thought this song was about anal sex.

Lol me neither! Cheers!
 
And I haven't even recognized the "F". I feel really stupid now!)
The only excuse I have, is that I've only seen the cover twice.

This last hour has been a great mix, nice job B&R.

(It may have been longer, only tuned in an hour ago.)


A highly underrated musician that plays a mean guitar too.
Thought it was Ricki Lee Jones until the chorus kicked in.

Nothing wrong with that though.
Nice! Hitting the right vibe today

New album any minute now...
 
The newest CD is called Pleasure.
I've listened to it all the way through a couple times.
This one's a little more "challenging" than her previous work, abrasive even, at times.
Not as melodic or pretty, but worth a listen, for fans anyway.

Fabulous and talented, but not my cuppa. After a few listens, I'm done. Thanks, Feist. Gotta cursor click that magic button. 
Love to listen to such talent

If you ask that question, then you don't completely understand repetition.  
everything Feist does is awesome

Along with Kathline Edwards..........perhaps it is a Canadian thing?
Just had to take this up a notch to a NINE imho.
is it me, or did she just drop off the face of the Earth? 
I could listen to more
an 8 
A triple play for Can Con.  Thanks Bill.

Reminiscent of her art work is the work of Ai Weiwei in Vancouver Canada.

He crafted a large F representing the Mandarin word for grass or some say the  F word, anyway it does look like a large tire spiked F.

Personally, I liked his coffee beans heap in Beijing, but that's another story.

Feist is the real deal !!!


She is absolutely stunning, a genius and a pleasure to hear and see. And the record is great. I saw her live in Copenhagen soon after the publication of Metals. It was one of the best concerts I've been to.
Yum Yum !

Everything new is old... seeing as Gertrude Stein said the same thing even longer-ago, talking of Oakland.

Meh. 
 
Yummier than ever!

Did I say Tasty?

 
Saw her at Harvest Picnic in Ontario this summer.  Incredible, incredible performance (this song included).  Prior performances in the day by Emmylou Harris and Sarah Harmer + pro-farm/local/organic foodies everywhere = bliss.

If you have a chance to see her perform live, it is totally worth it.
.....I LOVE LESLIE FEIST.....heart.....too bad she doesn´t realize....
Every time I hear this I love it more.
From another very good album of Feist!
Thanks for playing this!

If Feist would just ask me, I would happily go there.
No, not any more .  U should come again sometime.

Mumble,mumble,mumble.
Cooler than a cool thing
This song just keeps repeating itself over and over again.  This song just keeps repeating itself over and over again.  This song just keeps repeating itself over and over again.  This song just keeps repeating itself over and over again.  This song just keeps repeating itself over and over again.  This song just keeps repeating itself over and over again.  This song just keeps repeating itself over and over again. 
I'll Go There.
I heard this song was about oral sex.


No, I didn't, actually. But kinda funny. Maybe...
Not good - not bad!
Me too. I cringe but listen with interest.  Technically interesting but Feist never gets me to a state where I forget that I am listening.
Cool bananas
I like this song pretty well, but for some reason I cringe a bit whenever it comes on.  It's played just a little too often for me.

Anyway, on another topic, Feist is excellent.


 


Feist is her last name. She's Leslie Feist.
Love the time signature on this. 6/4 or perhaps 4/4 alternating with 2/4.
now that you mention it...

Fiest sucks! Horrible stuff!
 
You're sooooo transparent!

i really do plan on buying this album is some form

somehow


I usually like Feist but this song is really awful. Guess every artist is entitled to one bad song - but does it deserve air time?!!

My father was a bit of a glassman. Me, I prefer the boobs.

I'd never heard of her before RP started playing some of her songs recently, but I've been bewitched. Lovely voice, and the background horns and rhythm really make this a song to make you sit up and listen.
