Growing in numbers
Growing in speed
Can't fight the future
Can't fight what I see

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

Efforts of lovers
Left in my mind
I sing in the reaches
We'll see what we find

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

Slow slow slow, come come
Someone come come come
Even love is goin' 'round
You can't ignore what is goin' 'round

Slowly rebuilding
I feel it in me
Growing in numbers
Growing in peace

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together
People they fall apart
No one can stop us now
'Cause we are all made of stars

People they come together
(People they come together)
People they fall apart
(People they fall apart)
No one can stop us now
(No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(We are all made of stars)

We are all made of stars
People they come together
We are all made of stars
(People they fall apart)
We are all made of stars
(No one can stop us now)
'Cause we are all made of stars
(We are all made of stars)

Moby has made some wonderful work but this sounds like a poor man's version of this Bowie classic to my ears
Just some people are made of brighter stars than others.

Oddly enough, I had this rated at 9....not sure why....just down voted to a 7....i'm guessing the 9 was due to the sentiment of "we're all made of stars" which I truly believe.  Anyways, maybe next time this disk is spun I'll change my rating again, again!  Long Live RP!!
 
And today I went +1 to 8....it's the bassline that did it to me....LLRP!!
the best thing the Lil Fella ever did
See these Bones (Nada Surf) followed by We Are All Made of Stars (Moby) - I see what you did there ... Very clever!
Bad
Rating 7 down to 5 
Interesting comment about the repetitive nature of 'background' music.  The genre does exist (maybe not intentionally sometimes).

When the matter hits the fan is when one notices the repetitive nature of lyrics.

In this case, we seem to be made of stars.... (repeat ad nauseam)

It's at that point the song becomes excruciating.

Of course this song is but an example.

'Hey Jude' gets muted pretty promptly (in my case)... {#Cheesygrin}

It wasn't good in the day, either.
Oh. It does stop.
See These Bones —> We Are All Made of Stars

Nicely done, Bill.

That is funny. I've always been rather indifferent about Moby, but this is really annoying.

And?

Vivaldi's Four Seasons is a top-rater on RP. That was written in 1723.

(PS - I'm a sucker for Tiesto's remix of this one - a proper off-yer-tits hands-in-the-air rave classic)
Friends don't let friends release clunkers like this.

I guess it pays to whine: Bill is now playing CSNY's "Woodstock" right after this. 

Deja Vu was a great, great album but it's 44 years old. Maybe Moby didn't hit it out of the park with this one, but I don't think you can exactly claim he's ripping off Joni Mitchell or CSNY. 

And Carl Sagan wasn't exactly the first physicist to claim that life on earth was based on stars. 

Oh by the way:

He's ripping off Carl Sagan's "We are all made of star stuff." And, the music's lame as well.
A real let down from Play.
Sounds like Gary Numan...
This is the only song on "18" that I would listen to more than once given a choice. I just listened to it yesterday out of coincidence,to see what the fuss is about. I don't get it. At all.

I guess I'm just dull then. The main reason I like electronica and ambient is that it is repetitive and easily backgrounded perceptually - music for working on another task.
Read somewhere, a long time ago, that this guy might be a Genius... Hummmmmmmmmmmmm!!! I don't think he is particularly gifted (no more than me with English language though!!!) :o) But he sold so many albums... Do "Stars" have such a bad taste?

Unattractive person making awsome music. Moby this song reverberated worldwide thanks!
I haven't heard much of Moby's material and I'm wondering -- Is Moby an Eno clone in his own mind?
What a crappy song. Agreed that Play was a good album. And I even liked Soul Coughing's "Screen Writer" which was played a few minutes ago. Moby has arrived in Reseda.
timo maas remix of this is completely fantastic

Less creative than his ohter albums...
Yes, this album seems like a carbon copy of "Play"... Which doesn't make it bad because that was a pretty good album, but why would I want to buy this if I have the original :smile:
Less creative than his ohter albums... And a bit sleepy song, even with the samples... :yawn:
That song sucks. I never liked it. I don't get why poeple jump up and down while listening to some arranged artifical sound-clips without any kind of heart in it.
Great guitar hook.
right we get the message we are made of stars...... shesh

Science on RP! Yay! I liked your short intro about us made out of atoms from stars, Bill. Totally true and always a humbling thought. Not so sure about the song, though...
You know, I wasn't at all opposed to the commercialization of "Play". I felt that licensing the tunes to just about anyone who asked was a great way to get the music out there. So long as the music was good, what difference did it make how it was marketed? It's too bad Moby couldn't hold up his end of the bargain. Everything I've heard from him after Play has been utter shite. It's a shame, because he's done some great stuff in the past.
I just threw up in my mouth a little.
:yawn: -mt-
I like some of Moby\'s stuff, but this is pretty wimpy. The lyrics are sappy, too. Let\'s put flowers in our hair.

But he does nothing, but ripping off good music. Selling out. Brainwashing your silly mind with shit music. Making money. Grow up, dude! :moon:

Moby "Dick". Pick a motif and repeat ad-infinitum. Bordom. "do one can stop us now, cos we are all made of stars"? Get back to you mobile phone ads, synth boy......

i agree, this sounds like he's trying to break the top 10 and failing miserably :rolleyes: :p

Hey Darcy and the sHunter, it seems Ann Arbor has big RP following. contact me if you want to meet at one of our two hundred coffee shops :jwischmeyer@msn.com and Dear RP, please play older Moby, this new stuff is pale by comparison. Thanks for what you are doing. RP is still the best thing out there.
rp really loves to play some moby... luckily i don\'t mind too much, but it does seem to be on an awful lot :)
See my comment for Poe\'s \"Terrible Thought\" song.

Probably you just don't know what you like most(?) If so, that's something different than a total lack of taste (have been reading your bio). ;)

Aha! i knew i saw the Shunter before! ;) The song is just okay from here, but i am not that familiar with the Moby canon either.

My like of Moby has nothing to do with hype. Since I am about as out of touch with the media as you can be in America. It might have much more to do with my total lack of taste. Since I am "The Shunter". ;)

I really like this, it kind of reminds me of Bowie.
the record is skipping
Not affirmatively bad. But, as with most electronica, makes me just ask, \"What\'s the point?\"
Have to say that I\'m really glad that I was away from my desk when this song played. I can not stand it AND it gets in my head and stays there!
Play, oeverall, was a great disc. This song, however, is really starting to grate on me. No real substance, just meaningless ramblings. Let\'s hear more of Moby\'s less radio-friendly tracks, like Everloving or My Weakness. I\'d be interested to hear something different off of the new album.
So this is Moby? What\'s all the fuss about?
moby is horrendously overrated :evil: :evil:
I knew Moby could be cheesy and above all just bad, but I didn\'t know he could be this bad. I should have guessed. Soem of his other stuff I do love, but this sucks.
Not this song again!
Right on Bill!!!
Tired
This song again..? I seem to hear this every time I turn RP on. It\'s a good song, but there must be some other Moby songs to play.
This is a good song, but not after listening it for a week every day! Couln\'d it retire for a while.
< Y A W N > This from a wacked Moby fan, too. Sort of dopey and Poppy -- or is it \"poopy\"? Haven\'t heard the other cuts from the CD, but I would hope they\'re better than this tripe.
Already tired of this one..
Ya know, I really *want* to like Moby, and I do enjoy most of his music. I just have this sinking feeling I\'m going to hear this song on some dumb TV commercial soon... :roll:
what happened to moby? his stuff 4-6 years ago was at least interesting and different. this is plain boring. is he just tired? this is in no way electronica.
While this is a good song, maybe it\'s a tad overplayed.
There\'s a whole lot happening in this song, without it getting in the way of each other. Which, alone, is an accomplishment already. Quite nice.
why is this playing on radio paradise? it\'s got a video on VH1! that means it\'s time to retire this song from radio paradise and open up these play slots for newer bands or newer songs from established artsits.
I liked a lot of \"Play\" but I don\'t like this. Carl Sagan is the guy who said \"We are all made of star stuff.\" And Joni Mitchell sang \"We are stardust, we are golden. We are billion year old carbon...\" So I have a hard time with something as poorly written as this, and it hinges on the \"cool\" title line - which turns out to be as old as the hills...:-)

Not the happiest bunch of people, are you? :p Moby sounds unlike most everything on the radio, however I've the feeling that soon the radio will sound like Moby. That's a lot like the shift towards The Replacements influenced sound in the 90s. Or, dare I say, Nirvana in the same decade. Or even the Dave Matthews Band feel we've been getting a lot of for the past five years. This is a welcome shift. Electronica deserves its day, and Moby's shining. It's good that he's not techno or trance - those styles have had their time. Blarg!

you hit the nail on the head with that one. I have never heard so many worthless, formulaic, made for top-40 radio, unimaginative, derivative songs come from one recording artist before. he is NOT electronica. (now let me tell you how I really feel :rolleyes: )

I actually was going to comment that this cut appears to be Devo for the new century, but Gary Numan fits as well.

If you pre-order the disc on Amazon, they let you have immediate access to a stream of the entire album. Shouldn't all music sales give you this?

Why do you say that? Haven't seen the video...or heard the song :( As far as relations, I think he's somehow related to Herman melville(sp) kevin

still like Play, but glad to hear something new. this song is intriguing.
I\'ve been a Moby fan since the early 90s and, with the exception of the PETA disk, like his entire body of work. I\'m curious to hear the rest of his new release, but like this cut already!
