Light on the street, keep me blind
Sand on my feet, you're running me out of town
Out of my mind
Thousands of leaves, they bury me under her eyes
Mild breeze is telling me it's not my time
She's not mine

So day by day, I'll turn my dreams
Into a ministry, a ministry, a ministry of her love
Day by day, I'll turn my dreams
Into a ministry, a ministry, a ministry of her love

I'm lost in the sea of sweet design
Smoke that I breathe awakens me and she's divine
But she's not mine

So day by day, I'll turn my dreams
Into a ministry, a ministry, a ministry of her love
Day by day, I'll turn my dreams
Into a ministry, a ministry, a ministry of her love

Heaven up above, may lift my thoughts of you
Hand that touched the earth
Make me lovely and touch me, too
Make me crystal pure, cast my heart anew

So day by day, I'll turn my dreams
Into a ministry, a ministry, a ministry of her love
Day by day, I'll turn my dreams
Into a ministry, a ministry, a ministry of her love

Confession: Thought I was about to hear a Ministry song.
 


Looks like a few other people did too.
'Ministry' is the song title.
Karen O & Danger Mouse the artist(s).
Always channel this song to the love of my life, who passed away way too young for me to share it with her.
Gawd I love this song!

Everyday Is Halloween - Ministry

It's been two years since the last comment, 0 plays in the last 30 days, but I'm assuming that it has been played.
 

Good song. Not played enough here.

Michael Kiwanuka also collaborated with Danger Mouse. So I guess that's the reason
Whilst this was by far the best track off this album is was still worth the CD purchase. It comes with a really bad ass poster!

I suggest battered and deep fried... or maybe a good dipping sauce.

Jesus Built My Hot Rod is an amazing song, I've just gone to You Tube to remind myself how much I love it!
Wunderbarer Song. Habe mir aufgrund dieses Stücks das Album gekauft (übrigens extrem hübsch daher kommendes Vinyl-Album) und auch der Rest der Platte lohnt sich zu hören.
May this put a little Holiday Spirit in your step today!

I really like it. I'm not looking for potential similarities with other songs, I don't care. I just listen to it and I think it's good...that's it!

Sounds like a challenge that @BillG CANNOT let go...besides, you've got dipping sauces to help swallow whatever sort of hat you'll be eating whenever a Ministry tune is played.  
LLRP!!
Perfect, seamless  segue from Morcheeba Over and Over into this one, Bill.  Kudos to the master!
Cool how they start with a slo-mo version of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer". The rest of the 7.5 rating seems driven by the Wikipedia photo of the girl, lol. Come on, you know it's true. Otherwise a 6.

A darned good one. And it's "a" Korean mother and "a" Polish Father, Jerzy, or is it Jacek?

She grew up here in lovely New Jersey. Don't know what else to say to this.
Channeling the cosmic frequency for chill vibes and mellow moods. TY RP!
I hear hints of Broken Bells' Leave it Alone.  Danger Mouse in the house!

I feel like Danger Mouse is polluting music. Maybe not polluting it, but diluting everything he or she touches into the same melancholy tinged soup.

I like his work with Broken Bells and this tune but yeah, it feels like he is repeating his formula with every artist.
 


the transition fromthe National ‘anyone’s ghost’ to this was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoyed it
Just noticed all the negative comments. Although it's got a 7.3. Just fucking enjoy the track, it's great

I like Dangermouse, but that's a fair criticism, I think. There is no joy in Dangermouse whatsoever. 
Nice & glid- ie stuff. Excellent.

I couldn't agree more! In fact, I said so two months ago:


Posted 2 months ago by Kilroy:Exact same beginning as "Leave it Alone" by Broken Bells


This is pretty good, but sounds like a Broken Bells outtake. In fact, it sounds exactly like "Leave it Alone".

Thanks for reminding me about that great, bonkersmad track. I actually stepped out of RP for a couple of minutes to refresh my memory on that one. WOOOOOAAAAAARRRRGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Seems I like whatever Danger Mouse is involved in.

Before I plow through Danger Mouse's body of work, any suggestions as to what I should focus on?
 
Focus on something else. It all sounds the same.

Absolutely! And I fall for it every time.

Yeah, though if he ever does it would probably be something like their cover of Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay" (off their album Filth Pig).  That would be soooo RP...

Probably not very likely to hear here.
This gets better and better on subsequent listens.

Silky, down tempo, techno-ambient, ...., whatever, great emotional, head tune-up.
What an amazing morning of music today, and that's just so far!!
Thank you!!
Nice to hear new music!

Cool - kind of dreamy.
Compelling.  Nah, just sweet.
Sublime!!!
