Daddy's little racer in here brand new car
Top down for the weather and the sons of stars
Summer's soon, surrender
Eyes of blue, and time enough to shine

So come on, come one
You don't know it but you're coming right along

Baby's getting older under April skies
The road is getting warmer every day she drives
Old enough to know better
Time enough to know her left from right

So come on, come on
You don't know it but you're coming right along

Something's scrathing at the glass
All the angels drive too fast
Pull your dress off on the grass
See it falling
Summer's crawling over
Crawling over you

So come on, come on
You don't know it but you're coming right along

Not gonna read other comments - this is shooting from the hip. I LOVE it. It makes me want to fly, to write the perfect poem, to breathe the autumn air, to do everything I can possibly do in the time I have. Definitely gonna buy this one. They're inspiring.
 
An especially poignant comment now.

Sure miss the poetry of Cynaera's well-written posts.
I am VERY glad I found you. Long time ago I "did" radio at a College/NPR station (WNTI) and we were rabid freeform.  But real humans spun a yarn with their music, not unconnected strings of titles put together by a bot. This is the closest thing I have found to date. Support sent, T-shirt ordered. Rock on!

No way!  Way better than U2.
first listen I like. but I'm 1/3 irish scot lol its in the genes TY RP 1 more time
One band it does not sound like: the Posies. Ironic, since they borrowed the lyrics in the chorus from "Coming Right Along" from Frosting on the Beater. 

Let's play some Posies. 
Modern take on "Boys of Summer"?

But I can see you
Your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back
And your sunglasses on, baby

What a motivational set!!

  • Rubyhorse - Evergreen

  • The Jesus and Mary Chain - Head On

  • Led Zeppelin - Bron-y-aur Stomp

  • The National - Sorrow

I could listen to all four of these songs again - even in the same order!

Everybody thinks this sounds like a different band. Me, I thought it was the lovechild of Spoon and Dirty Vegas.
Never heard of this band. I really like this.

This IS pretty darn enjoyable.  Good background for the daily crossword.
...this is refreshing...
The vocals sounded a little like Gomez to me.
If Pink Floyd did chillout, . . . .
Sounds like these guys have been listening to a lot of Robbie Robertson
Nice prog rock elements.
I'm so liking the hell out of this tune.

Good Lord - this ISN'T U2? I thought I was hearing a "Achtung Baby"-era b-side.
I heard something U2-esque for a second or two at the beginning.....it reminds me a little of Daddy's Gonna Pay for your Crashed Car off of Zooropa. :think:

Dude, listen to the vocalist growling. Bono doesn't growl. No matter how much he would like to. apd wrote:

Like this. Good choice. :bananajam:
Tasty with a grabbing bassline... worth another look.
new stuff to my ears....I'm liking this very much :jump:

That's exactly what I was thinking. "Dark Side..." too. I half expected to hear that guy go, "I was really drunk at the time."

I always get Rubyhorse and Sparklehorse mixed up, something I can directly attribute to playing too much "My LIttle Pony"!

really rather cool stuff :D
Why have I never heard of this band? Thanks, RP!! :bounce: :bananajam: :clap: :bounce:
Resplendent introduction!
no great shakes!

This reminds me of Jesus Jones when he was good

V Nice. Feels right.
Not sure if this song gets a higher rating because it is a little more up-tempo than the rather dreary slow-tempo drivel that preceeds it. Eclectic means MIX IT UP. Give me a love, roller coaster, baby.
STEREOPHONICS , too.

Well, I think it is a happy song that makes me bounce around in my chair.

bwahahaha! yes. yes it is. ;)
I wanna be Sgt. Pepper when I grow up.......
Synth-pop. :frustrated:

Sounds like Zucchero!
Yes, yes, generic and unimaginative pop, with spacey moogy stuff that does not fit in the background. If these guys were landscapers, your yard would be a mishmash. ANd they can\'t sing. Suppress these dormice! This song seems like a ripoff of so many other people\'s. I feel sick. :cry:
Wow, we should all just stop listening to anything new and resort to the albums we already own. They are the only things that could possibly be any good. Play all oldies! I only like it if I've heard it before! Give me the local Clearchannel classic rock station any time! But you're right. This song sucks. :)

And "Evergreen"? I get the feeling there's some marketing wonk responsible for the names here, sort of like BP changing all their gas stations to a pretty green colour for "environmental friendliness." I can't think what Rubyhorse or Evergreen have to do with this music, which sounds like pretty generic pop.
snore :??: boring as hell
sparklehorse, rubyhorse, a horse with no name. I get so confused.
If you can see these guys live, do it. Great show. Kink of a Poster Children vibe.
Nice mix from that Young Dubliners song.
Im in the same boat here, I think this song would be great to listen to on a road trip. Perhaps while listening to XM radio (someday). :wave:
I hope they are not a one hit wonder. Play some more of their stuff, this is great.
Like this song....always looking for new music. Radio Paradise never disappoints.
First time I\'ve heard this song and this band. I agree they do sound VERY U2... however this is a catchy little piece... I like it
Liked this song first time I heard it a few weeks ago. Like it more and more each time I hear it played on RP. Gonna have to get the album.
Those Bono U. grads are never out of work. How about mixing this into Chapterhouse - Summers Gone.
Yet another singer who graduated from the University of Bono.
If you enjoy the sound of Rubyhorse, may I suggest Jesus Jones first two albums. Very similar good power-pop.
Ug, #5 on the "Top New Tracks" playlist. :p Such a terrible thing to do to such a nice song. :( Woo Hoo! It has dropped to number 25! There is hope after all. ;)
Rubyhorse is great live too! If you get a chance, go see them. --Steve

I was thinking of the IRA and the fights going on between catholics and protestants, though that's only Northern Ireland. U2 for instance refered to all the abuse taking place. Luckily it seems to become a thing of the past now.

This song lifts a lyric from the \"Basketball Diaries\" Soundtrack song, \"Coming Right Along\" by the Posies.

It's the Bono-like "...brannnd new carrrr" at the beginning.
