Theyre all flashing past
So many others moving so fast
I feel my heart smoke
As we go under it and bow down
Nothing left on this island
Upon steel on steel
Through these cuts in me
Ive no question who was here first
Many dreams many lifetimes
Any of which could be me
Cept that im the one unable to move upon this machine
Upon this machine

Pardon caravan emotion
Loaded crowds just like me
I fell between the moments
I fell between the endings
Cuz when it runs around the windows
Nothing here is still
All the paths have collided
Through all these villages and hills
So many dreams so many lifetimes
Any of which could be me
Cept that im the one unable to move upon this machine


Theres no one else, no one else, no one else, no one else.
Theres no one else, no one else, no one else, no one else.

Theres no one else, no one else, no one else, no one can help me now
Help me im stuck in this moving thing
Nothing is what it seems
No getting off this machine

So much love for this song. Love that too.

What a great tune!
I lived in Scotland for a year and would walk to uni. The road that took me there was lined with Japanese cherry blossom trees. What a treat on the brisk spring mornings.  One of the best times of my life. It's funny how this song sort of feeds into these memories. It normally works the other way round.
Thanks for keeping it in rotation. :)

This was a band I never got enough of, and back in 2016 I was wishing this group was still together. 

Well here we are.  More content please!! :)

If you like this, then you might really enjoy the "Calling All Stations" Genesis album. Sounds a lot like this.




That's the one... Had Mike and the Mechanics in my head but couldn't quite place it!! Thanks

Outstanding playlist Rebecca! Is why I donate.
It looks as if I've only joined recently, but I've been an RP fan for over 10 years now. On those days when I'm undecided what to listen to, I just turn on the puter and click! Most days actually ;-)

HITS ME LIKE A SHOT OF TEQUILA; leaves me trying to figure out what's moving, where we're going, and when it all will stop...  Dig!

"the old lady dentist"?  Gotta love those mondegreens...
Pretty universally liked here on RP...a rarity for the almost complete lack of 1's, 2's and 3's....not many tracks don't at least ruin 10% of the listening audience's day by being played against their wishes...

Lekker nummer
Another song by a band I would of probably never of heard if not for RP! I love every song I have heard by them. Kind of surprised this wasn't a sound track form Snowpiercer. Thanks Bill and Rebecca 
Man, that is one most excellent & moody AF song!

If ya don't know, leave it alone!! More for the users who use, for more than just "stoned" purposes!!

Younger Brother is exceptionally talented at making me want to sit and vibe and sing along and perhaps comment about it…
This song makes me want to do something street. Rather than go to the country club pool. 
The Bourne theme is in there somewhere....I think...  I like it.

Sort of an Alan Parsons vibe for me.

Never heard of this band but I like the sound - a bit Porcupine Tree, and that's A Good Thing.
If you guys like this then really check out their first 2 albums, Vaccine is good but it's not a patch on Last Days of Gravity and A flock of Bleeps.

Simon Posford has done so much good stuff - I hear Shpongle on RP all the time - but In Dub by Hallucinogen and Hicksville by Celtic Cross have the most YB feel to his earlier stuff. Simon Posford is an electronic genius. Almost everything he has touched is electonic gold.

Huh? What's with all those genres I've never even heard of to the right? Just sounds mighty rich & fine. Would really dig this song driving at night through some strange woods, to achieve max effect. On a hot summer night. Getting to the point in my RP career by now that I get a feeling I've said that before, here, about this song. Whatever.

Sure, but then PF is no longer with us, so carry on Younger Brother.. Love this, and could only imagine how cool it would be to hear it sitting on a fast train staring out the window.
For an all-day train trip from Cartagena to Madrid this song was perfect.

I was about to post that I have been upvoting many, many songs that I have on my favorites playlist just because I enjoy listening to them. Anyone remember "Seasons in the Sun."
 
You bastard. I'm gonna have that dreck stuck in my head all day.

BTW, I've never heard the B-side of SitS, but I've been told it's even worse. I think it's called 'Leave the Bone In'. Make of that what you may.

This isn't my usual style of music (electronic), but this is pretty cool.

If you dig this, scope out Departure from the Northern Wasteland by the genius progenitor of this genre, Michael Hoenig
How can I upvote this song from a 10?  Every time I hear it I go into the space of "wow".

Oh, and while I was looking for that confirmation I found an interview Younger Brother did with Thorgerson. Dunno if it's any good yet, but I'm saving it for later.
 Check the "The Last Days of Gravity" cover. Pure Storm

this just does not get old!
I just snortred some marijuana myself.

I thought I'd finally heard a good song from Train since their first album  but no, this couldn't come from Train, only their younger brother.
Works just fine in bright, sunny 80 degree weather for me, You just need to turn the volume way up :-)

This song requires dreary weather to work its way good into you. A bright, sunny, 80-degree day just ain't gonna do it. Atmospherics. It's all in appropriate atmospherics with this one. 

 

I was in a club half a dozen years ago, trying to hold a conversation with a friend in the mid-afternoon when the dj cranked up this track to 11.
had no choice but to listen, enjoyed it ever since.

Funky song 'bout a guy who seems to have gotten himself get lost on a train.

masterpiece!

I listened this song back in 2011 for the first time and since then it doesn't get boring. Thanks RP for that!

ps: 6 years to figure out the train sound samples within the song, better late than later {#Whistle}
Had it on loud, awesome... 9 -> 10

New for me, but I like it a lot.

I rode trains almost daily in my 20 years in Japan, and all around Asia and Europe, too... This song really conveys the kinetic concepts!
9 -> 10
'bout damn time too 
I just watched Stranger Things on netflix (it's pretty good, btw) and the theme music is so similar to the intro to this song I had to check if Younger Brother did the score.  Turns out it is a band called Survive.  I haven't explored any of the rest of their catalog yet.

That's the end of that story... I know it didn't have much of a point, but not all stories do. 
Doubter Thomas sings; one dot, two dots, and already in love.

Amazing!
Thank you RP 
another band I never knew
and now find in my collection

how do I give this an 8

Ordered from amazon.ca by clicking through RP a couple of months ago.

Great CD.  Can be cranked up or turned down to background levels. 
Excellent segue from Zero 7's Give it Away!  Awesome!
Opening is very reminiscent of early Tangerine Dream (which is just fine with me).

{#Clap} For me, it's also very evocative of rail travel. Having just been on a long (by UK standards) train journey, this takes me back to sitting in the carriage watching the towns and hills and flatlands go by and just vegging out, putting the mind into neutral. I really wish I'd had this on my smartphone playlist during the journey.

It's the devil's own job tracking down YB on CD, mind, one I've still not cracked. Time to try again as they really are something special to my mind. An easy 10 from the tripped-out Nottingham jury.
Every time this song comes on I check what rating I gave it - and then up it one.  Love this song!
