If you have a look
Outside on the sea
Everything is white
It's so wonderful

I met so many
People in my life
I've got many friends
Who can care for me

Just feel everywhere
At home tomorrow
Is a brand new day
Let's go somewhere else

No wonder. 
Ooo.  New to me.  I like.
You need a soul trapper 😊 Sorry.
That keyboard sounds nervous.
Someone should have sent this act a few bucks to buy some lyrics.

hee hee hee! I grow borage too. I think she meant 'barrage'. Not to be confused with Bar-age, a late night jonesing for beer. ps, pretty fluffy stuff from two guys who feel the need to wear leather driving gloves. Kind of stalker-ish...

Actually, no. In sci-fi movies, they always have to test the air to make sure it's breathable. In this case I think it isn't.

All these pops can't really be part of the song, can they? This sounds terrible. It reminds me more of my old LP's skipping than anything else.
Those are socalled tictocs...

That would only make it sound fluffier

More like an anal bubble bath. I usually like Air, but this is annoying. Is my computer frying out, or is the upload of this song filled with annoying pops and clicks? Either way, have to mute until the next song comes up.
air makes living possible.
I love Air and have all their albums but I dont think this is one of their best.
:chillpill.gif: Great chill out after hard day as well as a great part of hi-Q album. Fully recommend! :chillpill.gif:
How passive would you have to be to enjoy this Song??
Air is perfect for when you don't want to think about anything. Like a momentary pause in the massive borage of information going on in your head ya know? Oh yeah, and it's good to breathe too. :goodvibes.gif:
Air is absolutely brilliant in their approach to songwriting and production.

While I don't agree with your rating, I find your expression of it quite witty, in my nerdy IT sort of way.
Goodness, I love Air. Everytime one of their songs pops on RP I'm delighted.

Actually that's also what I hear, no matter how hard I try to teach my brain that it's supposed to be "Universal traveler"... It's quite typical for French people to use the wrong accents on foreign words :)

Air++. Very good.
So you're NOT on a mission to hate every artist that I like. Just kidding. You like at least three other songs that I like. Agree on Air though. Very good music.
Air++. Very good.
I cannot decide which is more irritating to hear - this song or my neighbor's windchimes...and I hate those windchimes (three sets on one porch...why??)
This song became the most listenable to me off this album.I still really like it.Makes me feel like im travelling through time.

Me neither! Still funny. :lol:
I should hate this song, but darn it, it's just so darn catchy!
ConFOUND it, this is catchy!
This one would segue great into Eulogy by Tool... I know, never gonna happen. But a guy can dream.
I like what you wrote. Are you a keyboard player and if you are then what do you like about synth pop today... please email me back es36021@earthlink.net ladyj wrote:

ok, but getting a bit overplayed, both on RP and elsewhere.

Shawn Phillips? The long-haired-hippie-12-string-acoustic-guru from the 70's? Put down that crack pipe son.....

What can I say? Of all the new music I've picked up at RP, this is my favorite album and this might be my favorite song. Thanks, Bill.

God I've lost it here on the other side of the "Pond." Dig the song, love the disk.

Amen to that. <-o<
I didn't know I needed a soul traveler.
I love this song, but the intonation on "universal traveller" just cracks me up. So French!

In a screw cap kinda way, in the case of this cd.

That explains why I like it. Thanks. Now I can buy the CD w/o regrets.......
Not bad, but definitely background music. Nothing more.

Saw these guys live a month ago......BEST show I have ever seen.
Maybe my favorite song on this album, but I like Premier Symptomes and Moon Safari much better. I thought the lyrics went like this: I met so many People in my life I've got many friends Who can kill for me I kinda like it my way better...
They are very fresh although being an older band. Always sound good.

Intriguing song. Completely light-weight and engaging at the same time. There shouldn't be enough here to like, but I like it a lot! Perhaps my tastes are more superficial than I realized.

Oh so very redundant!
Talkie Walkie is growing on me, but I'm most fond of the Virgin Suicides score... haunting.

This is the first time I've heard Air, though I've read quite a bit about them. Like the cut, it's got some nice musicality if a bit milquetoast vocal.
