Well hey, how's tricks man
Think I seen you before
Blank blank do ya
You looked a lot older
You been workin' out
Whats wrong with that

Well he came back and
Came marching in
Shot shot to the
He found a good reason
Do it for the money
Whats wrong with that

Control your bad side in to peril
We come down
Hold the line
You'll survive
Dead wrong

So please stop talking
Start puckering up
My ears are blank
Its the special occasions
You do it for the money
Can't go wrong with that

Explode or capsize
Provide my poet
If you're down
Town the line
You're so fine
Dead wrong

Love Gomez, but didn't realize it was them.  For a bit in there, I thought it was Morphine on speed.  :)

 
Love Selena Gomez, not this one. {#Cheesygrin}

Ha! I was just about to say it's Morphine on a caffeine high, but this works better.
My favorite group of all time.  Just wish they would put out a new album.  Keep pumpin' the Gomez
This whole album kicks ass.
This song KICKS ASS.
But this has a baritone sax — like what Brass Monkey should have used instead of that squeaky thing.

Song gets a 6. The "Bottom Burp" Sax gets an 8. Averages out to a solid 7.
I am going to use your "Bottom Burp" again!!
Thank you Mr. T!

My colleague just thought the same! And I agree. (I can read minds ;) )

This is where I started w/ Gomez.  Just a great band and as many others have noted, a killer band live!

 Funny-I'm listening to RP on Friday, 11/1/13, and the playlist is in the same order as you heard back then: McCartney, Gomez, etc...

Needed a palate cleaner after Mr. McCartney's "Uncle Albert."  This does nicely!

 


 Morphine meets Radiohead, for sure. Is there any singular appeal to Gomez? I mean, they're not bad, but I've heard nothing by them that really grabs me...

One can dream of a sax destroying a banjo, followed by an accordian, on it's way down into the dumpster.
AGREED!

Thank heavens you posted that ... I came on here just to find out what song this reminded me of! I knew someone must have already figured it out {#Roflol}
Thought exactly the same thing!

Is the rest of this album like this song?
 
Yes and no. No, not all the songs are like this one. The band has three different writers, Ben Ottewell, Ian Ball, and Tom Gray. This one's Ian Ball's. They're all terrific writers, so, yes, the rest of the album is as good as this song. Fair enough?

Is the rest of this album like this song?
EXELLENT!

Me Likey Gomez!
Love It!
The Beastie Boys don't get enough airplay on RP.
This is (really) GOMEZ...?

Do I have to take back,
what I said earlier?

Gorgeous power!
Wonderful!


It would posible shot shot at the midday, I hope I can....so Rock me Elvis{#Bananasplit} Ibagué


I never get sick of this one. Such awesome energy.

A lot of the parts in this really remind me of Radiohead's "The National Anthem"... the bass line, the Ondes-Martenot sound... Hmmm.
 
Absolutely.

This song is a teaser: The National Anthem -> Buena -> Brass Monkey -> The National Anthem.

This is about as close to sampling I've heard in while that does not credit the original artists.

hearing gomez anywhere else besides my own cd player makes me giddy.   {#Drummer}{#Bananajam}{#Dancingbanana_2}{#Bananapiano}
Yup.  {#Yes}
The sax in this song isn't nearly as slutty as the sax morphine does. . .

...a hint of BRMC...
Come on Bill, can we have a couple of songs that weren't already played this month? I imagine your collection and imagination is bigger than that! :stupid:

but doesn't every song with a bass sax reminds you of morphine? i suffer from that....=)

Sounds like it was sampled from PJ Harvey's "50 Ft. Queenie."

I think that Gomez is one of the best innovative and unique bands out there today. Each of their 5 CD's are interesting in their own right. In Our Gun is my favourite to date. I had the opportunity to see them at the ACL festival in Austin in 2004 and they are even better live.
Agree totally. Haven't seen them live yet, but hope to someday.

Gomez does morphine, quite addictive. ;)

Great. Now i'm going to have Brass Monkey stuck in my head for the rest of the day

One of those bands I think I should like but just don't. Saw them live at a festival and got bored. Vocals became monotonous.

freakin sweet!

More please? :jump:
Echoes of Morphine's "Honey White" in this songs rhythms and sax. Loving it!
Anything with saxes gets an extra point in my book. I like the "funky monkey" sax line.

Really surprised this band has not taken off in the States. They are rather fresh (although yes, they do have that ColdHead/RadioPlay/Doves/Verve sound). Alas, perhaps it's their very freshness that repels the masses.
Ahem... if all of that's a sound, then they're great, or then all of the above are crappy. :)

After hearing it a few more times, I've given it another point (still sounds like the Beasties).
original. brilliant. and.... it rocks.

I agree! The first time I heard the beginning guitar lick was on TV in a car commercial and I thought "Damn, what a PJ Harvey rip off! And to sell cars, no less!" I didn't realize it was actually a song by a real band. I thought it was commissioned to sound like PJ since they only play the guitar lick part. I like the full version!
I thought the Mazda commercial was a rip off of the Radiohead tune "national anthem" I thought this song was too at the beginning... but I guess there are only so many notes you're bound to repeat some...

I agree! I just saw them 2 months ago and my only complaint is that they don't have an actual horns section and didn't make too much of an attempt to simulate the horns with the keyboards. But that's not really even a complaint because the show was so faboo. Gomez are your friends.

I agree w/ the sentiment expressed here: I bought (through RP\'s Amazon link) this CD and thoroughly enjoy it. Clearly Gomez has made some money off RP listeners.

"In our gun" is an excellent album, different from "Bring it on" and better, IMHO
A very different track from them. Guess I\'ll have to order the disc...

gomez - INCREDIBLE - see them live and you will NEVER forget this band !
Here\'s an argument for free internet radio: If it weren\'t for RadioParadise, I would have never heard Gomez. And, I would have never bought one of their CDs. The local store only had one. After hearing that, I bought the rest of their CDs (special ordered) and the store put more on the shelves. So, although I originally heard the song for free, the band and record company made money that they wouldn\'t have made otherwise.
the best part of this band is that every song is great in a different way. Check out their other records, all of them are FANTASTIC! I recommend Liquid Skin.
i don\'t know why i waited so long to pick this up....... definitely very tasty ;) i like it very much. thx RP

This is definitely my favorite album of the year! :cool:

As usual Johray, your keen musical ear picks up, in this case, the similar Morphine sound (way before anyone else posted that). You are my hero. :cool:
Another masterpeice from Gomez... the UK's best band right now.. BAR NONE!! More Gomez, "Can't go wrong with that!!" :clap:
Sounds like Beastie Boys but better.
Is that the beastie boys - brass monkey loop in the background?? Ha! Anyone got more info on this artist? Really jammin stuff! v1
I am soooo diggin\' this tune!
I am completely jamming here at my computer!!! This is terrific stuff (And yeah, it does resonate a morphine-esque feel)
