You're in charge
you always were
there's no denying
fire burns
i took alot
but now i'm gonna give
back to you
whatever i got

cos we are one
and we'll always be
you were born first
forever connected to me
connected to me

it's not always how you want it to be
we had no choice,oh desperately
i had to leave
now i'm coming back
we had to see
you're white and i'm black

cos we are one
and we'll always be
you were born first
forever connected to me
connected to me
forever connected to me

I think that album cover worked for any pre-Internet pubescent hetero male, regardless of his DOB. The lingerie section of the Sears catalog was enough to do it for me back then. I didn't have much interest in the opposite sex until the middle of the 7th grade but then the hormones really kicked in...
 

To digress….it was the Herb Alpert cover that was my go to. The one with the woman covered in whipped cream.  To a 12 yr. old, it was formerly unimaginable sheer joy.

They were formed several years before Goldfrapp - quite a different band really.

Here's a great and completely overlooked band that started in middle-of-the-road and then progressed into what I could only describe as some addled European's idea of a 50's Broadway musical mixed with electronics. This album is the apotheosis of that style. I saw them touring behind BT and their encore song was a lounge version of "Inna Gadda Da Vidda."
HER VOICE, and that time-machine '60s-style music, quickly grabs my mind and sends me to a very special and groovy place, with shag carpets, black lights, bead curtains, incense, and Formica... I have been impressed by many of their great songs over the years. 
I'm gonna have to look up this album. 
Dreamy.
More from this voice talent please

I just read this, thought I'd share it.  Didn't realize this was from a thematic album.  Now I want to hear the rest!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hooverphonic_Presents_Jackie_Cane
The story revolves around the fictitious character Jackie Cane who leaves her identical twin sister in order to become a professional singer. Driven to the brink of insanity by the pressures of fame, Jackie quits show business and returns home to attempt reconciliation with her sister. But, still bitter from years of being put last, her sister kills both of them with a poisoned Last Supper.

Wow, thanks for sharing that. I knew something sinister was going on here... {#Shifty}

Speaking of The Tijuana Brass and veering even further away from the topic of the actual song –

I was about 8 or 9 years old when my parents took met to see Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass at the Carter Barron Amphitheater in Washington DC.

They were good.

But what I really liked was the opening act.

Some unknown girl group that went by the name of Diana Ross and the Supremes.

They were awesome! I tried to get backstage to get an autograph but security wouldn’t let me.

 



 
That is a great story. Thanks for sharing it! {#Clap}

I can see that though I thought of Star Trek first.
Jesus Pete it's a mystery how I missed this band when they were fresh.  Her voice is timeless, as is their lounge-cool sound.  (Snapping my fingers on every other beat, behind a pair of dark Foster Grants.)

Sometimes, and this is one of them, HER VOICE, and that spacey '60s music, sends me to a very very special and groovy place, with shag carpets, black lights, bead curtains, incense, and Formica...  I am really loving most of the last hour or more here on RP!  Fabulous!

i'm feeling waves of contentment
First time I heard this tune was on RP about 2 years ago...another group I wouldn't have thought about checking out. Thanks Bill for expanding the horizon.
I always think of Connery's  Bond movies when I hear this album. And yeah, I hear the Star Trek wailing as well.


Her voice and the whole ambiance of the track is intoxicating—when you connect them to the right imagery ... {#Cheers}
"Strangely compelling"  I like your description of this one...it fits perfectly  1wolfy wrote:

I hear that, along with a bit of the original Star Trek theme.

And btw, she is HOT, as women should, "MEAT" in the right places is good, Bones are for sick girls that have BAD breath b/c they don't eat ..

Great tune, long live the 90's!

Nice CD cover (w/the Porsche 911 & the woman in red).  Did not like this particular tune ("One") but would like to hear more...{#Curtain}

Like the music, plus the woman's voice, but that left leg looks kind of "Hillary Heavy."
 
I agree - unless they're skin and bones and can't even remember the last time they had a decent meal (you know, the heaving, sweating, skeletonlike variety of women about to drop dead), it's just not worth it (!)

Interesting segue from Doves - Satellites, in that particular way which I can't quite tell yet whether or not I really like.
Perfect start on a rainy Monday morning. Now I think I'm ready to do some work...

Works for me. 7 for the song, plus 1 for the lady in red on the cover :heartkiss:
Song was pretty good, but the backing vocals made me think of the Phantom of the Opera.
was cool then, still cool

I think those ultra pointy shoes are hideous.
They're good for killing cockroaches in the corner.
Oh, I'd hit it, too. Especially if she was cooing in my ear with that sweet voice! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:
I'm buying this just for the album cover. She's perfect except for the shoes. I would like a more rounded toe, possibly an open toe, but definetly a strappy shoe. I think those ultra pointy shoes are hideous. My wife has some of those open back clog type shoes with a slight heel and a little strap and buckle on it. HOT HOT HOT!
She sounds like she's a stalker.

I love the Duane Eddy-style guitar in the background.

Yes, Geike is very likable. Especially her voice!
I saw these guys once with this guy friend of mine... The singer had such a stage presence and was so sexy, he completely forgot about me :( But the show was cool.

Ok guys, the very beginning of this song is the same tune as the old song from the 60's and it goes "see the tree, how big it's grown, but friends, it hasn't been too long, it wasn't big." I forgot who did it, but it was a guy and the song was a weepy song about his wife who died young. "Honey" I think it was called. Interesting how Hooverphonic samples popular 60's tunes...
Yeah, and this steaming pile is just as bad as Goldsborough's tune! :puke:

That must be Honey by Bobby Goldsboro. Brrr!!! Don't think it's a sample though.
You're right! Weird song huh. And I agree it's not a sample... but the tune reminds me of the other. Do you hear it?

Hooverphonic is grooooovin music! Anybody buy their new one? Is it worth the import price?
Some of Hooverphonic's music is magical, they have a very unique sound, how do they do that?
Pleasant. Would make nice background for your hot stone therapy session.
Nothing fancy, a fairly dull music-attempt, though I Hear potential in the various musical elements. :pray:

Well, I think their album 'the magnificent tree' or was it 'the maginficent three' is the best. And since I am Belgian, I know my Hooverphonic !
...late night mood...this woman's voice fits the bill...somewhat etheral... S.

When I heard the very beginning of this, I suspected it may be a R&B tune. :)

agreed, but i still think that their first disc was their greatest.

I can\'t figure out if I like these guys or not... I\'ve heard a few things by them now, and I think it\'s falling on the \"not\" side. Morcheeba and Zero 7 do this sound way better.
