Angry faces, cursing loud,
Changing places, falling proud
Behind the bomb, no one cares,
Time is money
We're taught to tear

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance is never around

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance is never around

How can we show, how to feel
Situation ain't so real
Chopping wood won't stop the rage
We need targets on war we wage

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance is never around

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance is never around

You smash they grab 'til it's gone
Attempt to grow and fix undone
And I am the way it's all to scale
We're all companions on which we sail

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance is never around

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance is never around

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance is never around

It's all part of the process
We all love looking down
All we want is some success
But the chance

All we want is sunset sex…
I discover this sound through the headphones of two swedish girlfriends going by train to Hanoï. Since then i hear this album  with nice memories from Vietnam.
All my companions in the printing/DT publishing/graphic design field, –does anyone find themselves singing, "It's a four-color pro-cess" when this comes on? Or is it just me?!
she sings the chorus a full half-note flat!
am I the only one who hears this?

I REALLY like this song- love the major/minor hooks, the sound of the violin with the guitar and band- the way it's mixed and produced- like the SOUND of it... :)
 
 ... and I REALLY like your review. Made me stick around to check it out. You nailed it.
Isn't this that Beta Band song behind her?

Agree with the flat vocal comments. Too many missed opportunities to make this a stunning track, to my ears.
Sound like a mashup of Boys of Summer and Midnight Rider

More like internal belly noises to me, except mine aren't this continuos.

 Just noticed that this time. Maybe I've never listened to this on earphones?

The song's fine, however, the cat purring sound is unpleasant—makes me want to turn down my radio for four minutes. It's very annoying.

What are you on about? Shag is doing just fine, just talked to him a few months ago at his new LA store on Melrose.
Her voice is not enjoyable.  It's a shame.
Her voice is weak, thin, and tonally a little flat. This is how I sound when I sing. So I only sing alone in the car. It's like nails on a chalkboard.

Ugh. Started liking this tune...but it's slipping quickly on the conveyor belt of tunes for me.
filler

I find this band (and this song in particular) to be more about a mood and an atmosphere than about literary prowess, and it works rather well for me.  Generally, I don't find their lyrics to be simplistic - listen to "Blood Like Lemonade".  We all hear different things though.
Shag Lounge



 
Want that on my wall,

with Morcheeba on the 16.7 system too.

Oh, the 9 o'clock gun just went off bringing me back to reality.

PS Shag barely made it, I'm wishing him well.


And I used to think these guys were Kung Fu fans (more Chiba)
I like Morcheeba, but this tune is wearing on me.
Good stuff!!!
 
Just what are those strange noises that sound like they should be restricted to the bathroom? And what are they adding to this otherwise fine song?
I love this song, but that low rumbling sound reminds me of the the morning after an evening at Vinnie's Veggie Burrito stand.
Playing when I turned on this Christmas Morning. My favorite Morcheeba track! Happy Christmas to all at RP:-)
u turned me on to these guys Bill, and I can't get enough. SSoooooo mellow groovy. u need to play moog island on the bonus cut too, thanx mon

Bravo for posting a Shag painting. I have four signed/numbered lithographs (or are they serigraphs?), I never know the difference.

I have a rough time with Morcheeba - lyrics seem pretty simplistic (moon-June-tune...)  Still, sometimes they come through with a good song.  I like "Tape-Loop" because the lyrics are unexpected.  I always hate it when I can complete the next sentence/stanza/phrase/thought.

This is a good song, but not one of my favorites.

Would love to have been a fly on the wall when Skye Edwards quit the group.  That's her voice and it is pure silk soaked in honey.
 
I must agree with you about her voice. Smooth and sweet! {#Music}
Excellent - more 'cheeba!

Kind of?  {#Ask}

Kinda agree with this ... the first accords are boring-ish ... but I do dig the guitar and the fiddle as mentioned by another listener below ... the chorus is kind of cheesy ... overall, OK ... {#Sunny}

This makes me want to listen to the Sundays version of "Wild Horses".

Hillarious, that wet fart bit!

Swore this was Minnie Driver until I looked at the Winamp.
Rather enjoyed that.
Nice enough voice and song, though not as good as some Morcheeba I've heard on RP. Shame about the rolling wet fart sound in the background, though ;-)
Interesting— couple of reasons  I listened to some Morcheeba fews back and would not have picked her out here, cept knew I liked the voice and the musicians were tight! Also th{#Music}e comments are — interesting, if you have not heard some of early work give it a shot- the potential of this girl is I think unlimited
decent
I almost wrote this song off at first... but I am really digging the fiddle and slide guitar along with that sultry voice :biggrin:
Nothing almost about it, gernick. This is a groovin' song.
morcheeba have always hit the nail right on the head: Lounge music is meant to be forgettable. However the inclusion of country in this song almost makes it rise above the lounge benchmark

Morcheeba is kinda boring especially now when those two djs decided to change the lead singer. They simply sinked down to musical forgetfulness. Poor guys.
One of the better Morcheeba songs—and so true!
I'll have "less-cheeba" please.
YAY! MORE CHEEBA.

Didn't she make a solo album?
Mind How You Go was released last year. Browsing AMG revealed her "real" name is Shirley Klarisse Yonavive Edwards which initially is... Cool. :propeller: However, the current vocalist, Daisy Martey, is quite lovely.

I wonder that too. I really like this song and would probably buy the CD if I could get more of the same
This is typical of this album. Their first one was real dark, this one is more mellowand they keep getting more bubbly, until they got a new singer, and that album sucks. This album has a really funny rap song on it.
One of my favorite cd's. Some dj said they did a survey and found that more people had sex to this album than any other!
Isn't it too close to the end of the day for this junk?

Hearing bits of Jem in the vocals -
C&W vibe, yes, that's clear. But Turkish? I don't get that, or anything E. European in general here... But I LIKE this song. Is this typical for Morcheeba? kazuma wrote:

I just purchased this CD last week and it hasn't left my player yet. All the tracks are very cool. I really enjoy her voice.

Great track. Love her voice. Nice country feel. Even my father likes this.
One of the best they ever did - and just what I needed this morning - fantastic. :sunny.gif:
Yeee Haw G!
this is sewwwwwwwwwwwwww slick.......1st i've ever heard this.......issss wunnerful....will even change how i pronounce "process" ! :)
I just wish the beat was a bit more upbeat! The way it is at the moment makes me want to sleep
Not one of their best though I usually love Morcheeba...filler perhaps :-({|= ?? And what's with the country hick background?

Yep, the dyspepsic effect in the background does not make it for me either.

Not to mention the short dobro part.
Woohoo, I requested this yesterday and here it is. :D

this is catchier than i usually expect from RP, but i rather like it. it has a fun but not too repetitive feel to it.
