I've been accused I've been abused
Sometimes missused and yes confused
A loaded pen I dip again
Another trigger happy friend

I don't know why I continue to fly
In the face of reason
Something inside me just clicked
Like a tick from an awful season

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
And I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

I've been afraid to drive at night
I've been a sinner such a lonely sight
Not qualified not rarified
I persevere I give it all my might

I don't know why you continue to cry
That I'll never make it
At least there's some truth
To the fact that you know I just cannot fake it

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing

Under the gun under the gun
I'm swimming through the sun
I ain't tripping on a thing ...

Not these days, Fred. But back in the 90's when things were booming, it was a much savored staple!
THIS ALBUM was one of the coolest of the Millennium, for sure! This gal DEFINES sultry; even moreso on the song Never The Same

We are ALL under her spell

I can see that I am not the only one under Geri's enchanting spell... Indeed, she and Ramin Sakurai make some mighty tasty grooves!
Groovy

My introduction to this genre of music and it is good. The whole album is good. Yummy actually and delicious when working late. {#Bounce}

I'm sure you meant, "The Macallan"

The only bummer about Radio Paradise:  When you hear something really good, something that makes you sit up and notice — like this tune — it was usually released 11 years ago.

I guess if I've never heard it, it still qualifies as 'new,' right?

Morcheeba meets Hooverphonic with Massive Attack as godfather. Toe-tapping and cool. 8 from the Nottingham jury.
 

I tried to fix it. You did it for me. Thanks!

Also 8 is fine to me.



This entire genre doesn't really do it for me.
LOVELY
"Supreme Beings of Leisure"; something for us all to aspire to.

"Never the Same" is great and it plays here on RP occassionally I think but "Golddigger" has a great great groove too Yay SBOL!
It's got a good beat and I can dance...oh, never mind.
nice loops, no music
If they were really the Supreme Beings of Leisure, they would not have made me get up off the couch to mute this song.

Weird. This song just came up on my iPod as I was posting elsewhere on the site. Eerie. Bill now controls all my music. Soon all my bases are belong to him, too, I guess: resistance is futile.
Your life... as it has been... is over.

I totally agree
Urbane.
This was one of those songs that made me stop what I was doing and see who was playing (I really need to break myself of the 'check WinAmp' habit since it runs several seconds behind and this is NOT Blind Faith). I'm enjoying this!
This reminds me of Luscious Jackson. Any connection? "Supreme Beings of Leisure" What an awesome band name!! I certainly would love to be a Being of Leisure, supreme or not!

But, as you said, good. Can you imagine hearing this on "normal" radio? :cool:
