You don't have a clue
What it is like to be next to you
I'm here to tell you
That it is good, that it is true

Birds singing a song, old paint is peeling
This is that fresh, that fresh feeling
Words can't be that strong, my heart is reeling
This is that fresh, that fresh feeling

Try, try to forget what's in the past
Tomorrow is here
Love, orange sky above, lighting your way
There's nothing to fear

Birds singing a song, old paint is peeling
This is that fresh, that fresh feeling
Words can't be that strong, my heart is reeling
This is that fresh, that fresh feeling

Some people are good, babe in the hood
So pure and so free
I'd make a safe bet you're gonna get
Whatever you need

Birds singing a song, old paint is peeling
This is that fresh, that fresh feeling
Words can't be that strong, my heart is reeling
This is that fresh, that fresh feeling

That fresh feeling
This is that fresh feeling

Wrong choice, Helga
Nice!
Seems the Eels walk on a thin line between being
GORGEOUS and GARBAGE!

Guess what this is...? 

These guys did the soundtrack for the movie Yes Man.

If you're into melodic, romantic tunes, the stuff they put on that soundtrack is definitely worth checking out.

Love the Eels! Not my favorite song of theirs, but a good one nonetheless {#Lol}
and its a soap commercial.
most excellent song and album I think
I listen to EELS in a completely different way after seeing the guy on that Nova episode.  Interesting (not so good) environment he grew up in with his very eccentric, very intelligent dad.  Always around but never there (kind of)

 

outstanding Song, Like to hear more Eels on RP, never heard Eels on a radio station before
 
Dig that album art!
Feminine Protection Ad ... totally makes sense ... all they need is the lyrics to include spring rain
This would be a great song for a panty liner commercial...
more eels please
Great 70s string section. This song works.

Very Beck-ish for Eels..but they haven't half the talent.
I wouldn't say one was more talented than the other. They're both great; just different (except maybe in this case).
I love 'E' and eels, and I have to give this a 7 just because it makes me laugh thinking about douche commercials.

I thought it was Beck and had to check, since it seemed too poppy for him . . .

joyful, joyful, joyful. I try to keep this station on until they play the Eels. I am joyful.
Leaves me with that "not so fresh feeling." Give it a 4

This gets a 9!
This song is incredible. It's definitely the best Eels song, which is a tough title to assign. Way to go RP for playing this great song!
and boring
Only heard a couple of Eel tunes. I likey this. :cheers:
Awwwwww........ *sigh*
groov-eeee

Good to know. That's one nice thing about iTunes and the like - just download the winners and leave the wienners alone... Scott wrote:
I really like this song, and I bought the album (Souljacker) based on the songs I heard here on RP, but I must say that the album on the whole is *very* uneven. The songs that get play here (Fresh Feeling, Friendly Ghost, etc) are great, but the rest of the stuff - That's Not Really Funny, Souljacker, are at best mediocre. It's weird, because the good songs are *really* good. Put the best of this record with the best of Electro-Shock blues and you'd really have something.
Nice groove and that album cover earns bonus points for sure!
Nice
They've been around for a long time, but I still don't know much about the Eels. I have yet to hear one of their songs that I don't like though. I've really got to seek out one of their cds. Thanks RP, for turning me onto yet another great band.
I love this song. :boohoo:
When this song started I thought perhaps it was Sgt. Peppers.
Hmm, I've heard some Eels material before, but never this one. And I really like it. From the moment it started it 'drew' me in... :sunny.gif:

That's how I felt too. Hard to believe the same person/people wrote all the songs on that album.
I predict this song will turn up in a feminine or hygiene product commercial. :roll:
Great melody and chord choices, is there anything wrong with that? I don\'t think so.
I hate to say, but I went out and bought the Eels' Souljacker after hearing them here on RP, and was pretty disappointed, really. I don't know if their earlier recordings were better, but I'm not a fan -- wish I could have my money back. :(
getting a little tired of this one.
Are Eels hitting the mainstream? I just heard this tune last night on an episode of the NBC sitcom \"Scrubs.\"

Ahh, thanks. I needed this. It never fails to get me in a good mood :) Beck and E might do an album together? Wow. You learn something new every day. Now that's something I'll definitely have to buy if/when it comes out. Such extremely high levels of coolness. Phia is happy today.

Darn, you stole my comment ;) BUT, this could also work for toothpaste, mouthwash or gum! I can see it now...how fresh...

AFAIK Beck and E (the singer of the Eels) are friends and maybe they'll do an album together...
I love this song and I love this band. What orginally attracted me to this station was looking at the playlist and seeing \"Woman Driving Man Sleeping\". I thought \"if this station plays the Eels, it\'s got to be good!\" and I\'m not disappointed! :) A fantastic song for a fantastic radio station. I\'ve always loved this one. It makes me feel so happy listening to it.

A sweet, pop-y song from E. and the gang? I keep waiting to hear the sarcasm/anger that I love about his songs. But this is pleasantly pleasing. Kinda Fresh Feeling. I\'m goign to have to buy Soul Jacker now...
Definitely on the \"Buy Some\" list thanks to RP. Kinda has a Moby feel in spots. Like it!
too harsh for my tender ears
Nice vibe... Simple... Very, very nice. :)
I\'ve become a huge Eels fan recently, and this is a great song! I encourage anyone who likes it to check out their catalog--some really good music there.
Good song to start the morning with
Cool. I had never heard of the Eels before I started listening to RP, but they\'re on my shopping list now. Keep their songs coming!
