Tune in, drop out of love,
Pull the trigger, I'm a hippie,
So said a truth, and blood,
Alive and well,
You push the buttons.

Standing in line of fire,
For the whole,
My soul,
Step codes,
The drums,
And sing,
Love the children,
Learn to live with everything.

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

Zoom in, cut out at sound,
Make it feel so trippy
Hung up, let down to ground,
Forget the kill it's far to sticky

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

Love love love, i'm a trigger hippie, yeah
Love love love, we're trigger hippies, yeah.

Certainly HOPE I'm dead in 50 yrs!!....Hoping to not have to endure much more of this "modern" world.....MANY times quoted...take me back to simpler day in time....30's would be fine....gr8 depression & all included!! Some things, like RP, they are nice in this day/age but, all else "electronic"/'net related....garbage. IMHO.

I don't think most people even look at CD covers anymore, much less make purchasing decisions based upon them.  It's sad, really.  Anyhow, it's not a very impressive cover - not bad, but it looks like the Adobe noodlings of someone who probably never attended art school.
 
Oh....it's not doodlings!....by ANY stretch!.... And, no matter if bought on cover art or not, that's one tasty lookin bud!! 😁

HI-larious!  Although, in sticking with the "HI" aspect of this tune, you know with the album cover photo and all, I wonder how many stoners will be able to remember to follow-up in 44 years from now....mental note made (SMOKE MORE WEED!)

Kinda weird, but with some likeable lyrical twists.

Rock n Roll was never music that was meant for posterity. RNR was/is/will be ALWAYS about that point in time in which was made. It's an artist's reflection of the times in which they live. Why can't you and those like you accept that?
one of my favorites. first song i ever heard by them.
I'd pull that trigger.

Isn't the paucity of talent under major label (studio) cooptation of campy folk music the stuff of the most recent Cohen Bros. flick about a struggling singer - songwriter falling down at the time of Dylan's emergence? 
 
Cooptation?

I guess we'll just have to wait 50 years to see if you are correct.

Let's see what was popular 50 years ago: May 1963:

"If you Wanna Be Happy" by Jimmy Soul
"Foolish Little Girl" by The Shirelles
"Can't Get Used to Losing You" by Andy Williams - (that's still on everyone's playlist).
"Puff (the Magic Dragon)" by Peter, Paul & Mary.
"Linda" by Jan and Dean.
"Reverend Mr. Black" by the Kingston Trio.
and many more familiar tunes, but don't know who is still listening to them.

Never a bad time for Morcheeba
Reminds me of Niel young's comment " I saw the middle of the road and headed for the gutter"

Maybe so, but I like listening to it now.  Lots of stuff I like will have no value (or be popular, whichever you mean) fifty years from now.  Hell, my favorite bell bottoms fell out of favor way faster than fifty years.  "Hippies" -- from the title -- didn't remain in favor fifty years either, but that doesn't invalidate our worth then or now.

Interesting comment.  Made me think, and I'm sure I'll be thinking about it long after I log off tonight.

I was a student living in Bristol at the time of triphop 94/97 i think it was, saw these guys at the uni.    the songs are still in my regular playlist.  Im just dissapointed that RP choose to play this remix.  it doesn't have the simplicity or finess of he first cut.
I just love this album! Still play it all the time.

Aside from the play on words (trigger happy) there is the background vocal saying "drop in," as well as the opening lyric "tune in, drop out."  All of that a bit of a play on Timothy Leary's "turn on, tune in, drop out."  Maybe it's an homage to hippies...  

Love this track, regardless.

A play on words.  Trigger happy -> trigger hippy. Something someone dreamed up while tripping?

Give it your own meaning. :)

not for this song thread, but I am certain things I am posting are being deleted later. Makes me not want to post anything.



I've heard this a milion times, never knew who it was til now. I like it, sorta.
Reminds me of Astrud Gilberto, or Mazzy Starr. Catchy hook.

classic morcheeba...la la love it...{#Clap}
I like this song, they remind me a little of Sneaker Pimps.
Mmmm... Shirley Klarisse Yonavive Edwards, where are you now?

Blah, blah, blah ....  ( accent the last 'blah' )


Seen them in concert twice.  SO great.  What a perfect day for Morcheeba.  Well, that's most days...
I remember the Bang Bang Club in Milwaukee  (funny footprints facing eachother)

These guys are so great! My favorite band since...........ages!!!!!!!!
Love them! They are awesome! {#Dance}
ahhh. first morcheeba i'd ever heard.

feels good.
and who can you trust, really?

Saw Morcheeba last week in Toronto. Fantastic. And the performance of this was superb(ly trippy)! :yes: :yes: :yes:
Love these guys! Thanks Bill. :bananapiano:

I think I could marry this girl just for her voice. there is just something about it that settles into my bones.
I used to dig this band, for a while, then it got too predictable.... I think I was trying to latch on to some hip-hop I could 'understand'. It must be me; there are certain kinds of jazz and most classical opera that just don't penetrate. For background, I'd rather listen to the Cowboy Junkies or Lou Reed. Like they say, tastes are beyond dispute.

I recommend you try doing the task yourself before you judge how much of a musician one can be in the remix role.

Love her voice. Evocative.
I didn't realize this song was ten years old already. They used this song in 'Enemy of the State' in the scene where Will Smith is in the lingerie store but it doesn't appear on the soundtrack.
This is the kind of music I'd play at my gogo or strip club, if I had one.

So where is the line between acceptable and overuse of engineering? By implication, your remark suggests only "live" recordings are most worthy of respect. Music is sound. Create the sound any way you can. Nice song. 7

I think the original album mix is better. The extra synths are unnecessary and ruin the atmosphere somewhat. Still good, though.

Wow, Skye Edwards (lead singer Mocheeba) sounds so incredibly like Kelli Dayton (lead singer Sneaker Pimps). I thought they were one in the same!
This was the first time we've heard this song - we thought for sure it was the Sneaker Pimps lead singer.. but I guess we're wrong. anyway this is a great song, we'll have to procure some Morcheeba. I've heard songs of theirs here and there but never gotten to know their music more.
I say goddam! How much do I love Morcheeba? It's hard to say. But this sure picked up my morning.
Trigger Hippie eh? Sounds more like Moose Factory.
