Soft hands my drug
You taste like home to me
Echoing reverberations
I am now remembering
Your kiss is a dream
Elations extreme

One step closer
I am one step closer to heaven

And now I'm never the same
Never the same girl twice
Oh no I'm never the same
Never the same girl twice
Not the same girl you loved last night

Mysterious chemistry
Someone's cookin' in the kitchen
Elixir of the pearl
A luscious berry swirl
I'm losin' some sleep
No company I'd rather keep

One step closer
I am one step closer to heaven

And now I'm never the same
Never the same girl twice
Oh no I'm never the same now
Never the same girl twice
Not the same girl you loved last night
(Not the same girl you fucked last night)

Never the same
Never the same girl twice
Oh no I'm never the same now
Never the same girl twice
Not the same girl you loved last night
Not the same girl you loved last night
Never the same, never the same
Never the same, never the same
Never the same, never the same

I think you need a new screen name....
Morcheeba with a better name? Still groovy.

I get such a "The Corrs" vibe off this song - and that's not a bad thing.  
Too bad they didn't just do a cover of the Turtles. IMHO a much better song, and that little drum machine blast is just not for me.
Never the same girls twice . . . . just SINGS the same thing over and over.
Alright.

Just LOVE LOVE LOVE this group.
Oh God! I haven't heard this in ages! Thanks. I think it was in Six Feet Under. That was some show. Cool band name and cool tune.
10 for the name of the group, and if that sounds frivolous you're right!



actually I really like the music.
There is a short story called "Elephants Never Forgot". Perhaps someone should give it a read. 
As smooth as it gets really *record scratches*
The Lightning Seeds ~ You Showed Me (Rip Off?)
Sounds like a mashup of Hooverphonic and The Cardigans. I like it.
I'm sure Flo and Eddie could use a royalty check.

Great observation.  Paul's Boutique is a definite classic (Check Your Head and Ill Communication aren't bad, either, and if you have any interest in experiencing the very beginning of Rick Rubin's genius, Licensed to Ill is it).  Another influential early hip hip recommendation (and glaring absence in the Radio Paradise library): De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising.  Awesome.

 
DJ Shadow Endtroducing. Nothing but samples (and scratching, which is manually controlled record sampling so, yeah nothing but samples). One of the best albums of the mid 90s. If ya haven't listened to it, and you like either Paul's Boutique or 3 Feet High and Rising then you owe yourself a listen.

Hell, even if you hated both, you might enjoy Endtroducing

Yep, they sampled part of that song in this, and about 20 other people have posted something about it in this thread.  
Love the general mood and the voice but could do without the little record scratches and a couple of the other effects.
"You Showed Me" by the Turtles anyone? Edit, someone already said that!

Unless you're working in a grade school or a convent, I don't think there's much to worry about.

Yes, I heard the borrowed notes as well but not so sure about the job well done.

Ever listen to the Beastie Boys' album "Paul's Boutique"? That album is almost nothing but sampling — over 100 songs are sampled — and I think you'll find it's quite original. Almost 20 years after its release, serious hip-hop critics (such as Source Magazine) still consider it one of the greatest rap albums of all time, and I can assure you, it's not because of the rapping.

Loving the sneaky whispered "F Bomb"!

Aha! So i downloaded this track a year or so ago, and was really grooving to it for a long while. Have since lost lots of music, and have been trying to remember who sings this song. Thanks for jogging my memory. Really dig this, think i heard it first on Veronica Mars. kinda sounds like it could be the opener for a Bond movie, though, doesn't it?

Yummy song.

Absolutely! It's a rip off of the old 'Turtles' tune..."You Showed me"
Oh, well. One person's groovy sample is another's blatant rip-off.
She said (whispered) it again. HOT! This whole album is really nice and great for cocktail/lounging parties!
meh.
Loungy goodness, with a pleasant aftertaste. Tasty.
I love SBOL. I have this whole album and it is in constant rotation!

OK, I see it's already been noted that this starts like the old Turtles song. This is the second SBOL I've heard and like them very much, even though I don't really like sampling.

I agree. I have to sit down. And it ain't the word, it's how she says it!
Love the song! :good-vibes: Hate those pod chairs that the girl is sitting in on the cover. They hurt my back! :headache:

I like the tune, but I have to give it a 10 just for the band name... :lol:
supercool nostalgia, although i always thought the use of the f*** word spoils the groove, less is more aint it?

Tony, I cannot beleive you said that! I thought this was Morcheeba at first.

You're absolutely right -- the strings are sampled from the Lightning Seeds' cover of THe Turtles' "You Showed Me," which is on the Austin Powers soundtrack.
Oh thank you. My brain was about to explode trying to figure that out.
Quite nice and good. Her voice really grows on you. :tongue:
I think I dated her. It was hard to tell if she was the same girl I *dated* last nite.
Great name for a group!
No comment. Except this one.

haha. funny how music hits us all differently: I actively dislike Portishead, but can tolerate and sometimes enjoy Supreme Beings of Leisure. both highly overrated, though.

FInally! A track that hits the spot. Too bad I have to turn this off and leave my job now.

Is this sampling (or sampled by) another song? That falling string section... where have I heard it? I'm thinking it's on a song on the Austin Powers soundtrack. I'm not dissing it, just trying to place it as I liked it then and I like it now.

SBOL and RP! Perfect! This whole CD is fantastic. Play at your next patio party.
Garbage. No, I love it, but it sounds a bit like the band Garbage.
I hear Portishead and Skunk Anansie. What a combo, eh? :nodhead: I really like this song.

The Police' Don't Stand So Close To Me maybe? At least that's what it reminds me of. Funny how, besides that, she sings 'I'm one step closer'!

Moments in this song almost fool me into thinking I'm about to like it.
Great band name!

the only thing this has goin for it is the lifted string hook...at least the turtles had other things in their song that were memorable...and their string hook was new then :headshake:
Slick! :bounce:
Run DMC and Jam Master Jay :yawn: :beat:
kinda nice, in a Turtly sort of way.

This sounds a LOT like Sheila Nicholls. Too bad she doesn\'t get played on RP.

exactly right. it was sampled on de la soul's "transmitting live from mars" as well. the song is enjoyable, but beat jacking is beat jacking. what's the point of reusing a sample someone else made famous, especially when it's just looped?

That's exactly what I thought it was when it started. It was a remake done by the Lightening Seeds for Austin Powers, but I don't know the name of the song either.

Yeah that's what I could say when I hear the same four chords in every pop and rock song with the same cliches for lyrics and the same BPMs. The music being sampled doesn't make it un-original. It's what you do with it. I'm not trying to make enemies here but you must not know much about music because that kind of statement seems really ignorant to me, a musician.
oops, meant to say de la soul :roll:
I\'m afraid that I don\'t know the original source of that sample but I can tell you that 3 Feet High and Rising also used it...groovy, or should I say daisy age?!?
