Come on children mind the gap.

Miracle people with marvellous hair,
And the knack to do anything better than anyone,
I got a home with electrical air,
And I live in a world smaller than anyone's,
I got a line on the new frontier,
I got a line on the new America,
All of the people are vanishing here,
I could be huge if I could just get.

From the outside of everything to the inside of you,
From the outside of everything to the inside of you.

Purest aluminium people are walking,
The streets of London so hysterical,
Nobody here gets a word that I say,
And the problems I'm told,
Are more than medical,
I got a friend from the new frontier,
And Galen, she says, this is not America,
You need a girl with electrical hair,
And the word that you wanted was aluminium.

From the outside of everything to the inside of you,
From the outside of everything to the inside.

I was in bed with the girl at the end of the world,
She said, I'm going home, you should come home too,
But I'm at the end of a new frontier,
Here at the edge of the flat earth ending,
I'm getting off to get lost in the air,
At the end of the world where the light is bending.

From the outside of everything to the inside of you,
From the outside of everything to the inside of you,
From the outside of everything to the inside of you,
From the outside of everything to the inside.
To the inside of you,
To the inside of you,
To the inside of you,
To the inside of you.

I'm a big Counting Crows fan, but this song is just godawful.  Hard Candy has some good songs on it ("Holiday in Spain", "Up All Night", "Colorblind", and yes, even the title track), but this is one of the tracks that they really, really bombed on.  For this album, the band went too far over into pop, and I think it cost them a lot of fans.

Luckily, Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings was a much better album, and their latest, Somewhere Under Wonderland, is their best since Recovering the Satellites.
This song \"killed\" this set. Blechhh.
I use the be the biggest CC fan. Now that I\'ve heard this song, I have no respect for them. :cry:

I thought it was. Deadbeat Club or whatever that one is.
Hey...I hate the crows...but this song is pretty darn catchy. Sounds nothing like the crows. And that\'s a compliment.
damn, I keep posting comments on the wrong songs, how do I undo a posted comment? Sorry gang...
sucko bigtime! :cry:
I have to laugh....after reading all the posts ripping the Crows for sounding like...well, the Crows, they finally try to sound like someone else for a change and get ripped for that! Unfortunately, the someone else they tried to sound like was Oingo Boingo.
Bill, on your rating system, you should have numbers running in the negative. I had a nightmare last night. I was a recording engineer and Adam and Natalie Merchant were doing a duet. Take after take after take after take. One worse than the one before to the point I jumped off the roof. I woke up before hitting botom and had to put on Marvin Gaye just to believe I was awake.

I quite like it, actually. In fact, it had been stuck in my head when I turned on RP this morning, and I was pleased to hear it. It\'s catchy and good for moving. If RP played it with the frequency of Pop Radio (tm), I might be sick of it after a few weeks. But they don\'t, and I\'m not.
I don\'t know why this song seems to provoke such antipathy. This sound has grown on me with repeated listenings.
So is this the \"contract fulfillment\" release? I couldn\'t begin to imagine what prompted them to create this sound.
Bill Please spare us so much of the Counting Crows. This New Frontier track has a particularly annoying repetative guitar riff that makes me want to punch out the sophmoric idiots writing this crap. Please make it stop!! :evil:
Almost has a \"Love Shack\" sound to the song. I give it a 7 :roll: ;)
Sounds like Counting Crows covering a newer REM song.
You know, I wish that were a Minimoog, but it\'s NOT. Nice try, fellas.
Do you think Adam ever visits the RP site? if anyone out there knows him, tell him there is a girl in Baltimore who is CrAZy about him (in a good way) and he should look up mrrmaid1!!!!
I\'m a big fan of the Crows, and I\'ve defended them on other songs. Not this one — it stinks. :frustrated:
\"All of these people are vanishing here\" I wish these guys would vanish.... utter bollox
New frontier, hmm? Let's make it the final frontier, then shove 'em out an airlock.
They just keep getting better! The CD is exceptional, and has a variety of stuff on, not all of which will appeal to everyone :lol:

same here. love the Crows, hate the '80s. this song still isnt nearly as bad as most real '80s craud, though.
Every time I wonder how bad a band can be, I just think of Counting Crows. These guys BITE! :frustrated:

Not quite as bad as \"American Girls\", but it doesn\'t really do much for me. A friend of mine bought the CD and says it is good, but I\'m beginning to wonder if it\'s just blind devotion :-)
This reminds me of all the 80\'s music that I never really cared for.

Uhh.. The album is \"Hard Candy\" not \"Rock Candy\". This is why I love this place. Only RP will play anything from a new album, not just what the RIAA decides we should hear. Pretty nice stuff.
I\'m not a big fan of Counting Crows, at least what I\'ve heard. But this song seems to have more of an edge than a lot of their stuff, and I like that.
