I don't want to be shy
Can't stand it anymore
I just want to say "Hi"
To the one I love

Cherry blossom girl

I feel sick all day long
From not being with you
I just want to go out
Every night for a while

Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true

I never talk to you
People say that I should
I can pray everyday
For the moment to come

Cherry blossom girl

I just want to be sure
When I will come to you
When the time will be gone
You will be by my side

Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true
Tell me why can't it be true

Cherry blossom girl
Cherry blossom girl

I'll never love again
Can I say that to you
Will you run away
If I try to be true

Cherry blossom girl

Cherry blossom girl
I'll always be there for you
That means no time to waste
Whenever there's a chance
Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true
Tell me why can't it be true

beautiful...
Way way way too much like elevator, monotonous and heartless music
Don't miss their groundbreaking album "Moon Safari"!
Isn't this Strong Bad? https://www.gamingsurvival.com/dev/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Strong-Bad-1.jpg

Just horrible.

Strong Badians are nothing like the French. And Strong Bad is way cooler than Spider Man.  I mean, pfff, who's a scared of a spider, man?

Oh, you made me laugh! Thanks!
Quite pleasent.
Holy crap!  this is horrible!

This one is OK (not crazy about the flute), but I appreciate RP introducing me to Air; it's opened up a whole new genre of music for me that I've come to really enjoy.  The duo's Mer du Japon (and the remixes) are my current favorites.
I like their newer stuff better.  And BillG wore this one out when it first came out.

Not their best track...kinda lame

I can understand this leaving you cold, as Air are a bit of an acquired retro taste, but "sounds like Wham" {#Stupid}? This is a rather long way from George Michael's voice and instrumental style.

put it on the make out mix

He may not be a badass, but I bet he draws a wicked espresso while giving you some serious attitude.

I can see him wearing those gloves while he types, too.

I love Air. Great band, great sound.
True...I've always had a soft spot for "Air" head guys. (J/K I have this CD and it's great!!)
Thanks for playing this, it's one of the better Air tunes.

Another British Album, Nothing Changes Under The Sun by Blue States, has been referred to as the best album Air never recorded! Worth investigating if you're an Air fan.
I'm french, they're french, they suck! They think they are genuises... Vaporous crap! NEXT!!!

I think these guys are wearing gloves so they won't leave fingerprints when they strangle the people making these inane comments! Wasn't OJ wearing similar-looking gloves when he did the deed? :angel: Great tune, by the way.

equations in diapers--HAH!

Thank you, thank you, Bill & Co., for lacing your playlist so heavily with female vocalists and surreal instrumentations. It gets me down that there is so little on the broadcast 'spectrum' that isn't crashing guitars and guys bellowing their lyrics like wounded bears. I mean, there are times when crashing guitars and the angst of young males sound fine, but that seems to be all that Clear Channel knows.
You said it!

As much as I love this tune and all of Talkie Walkie as well as Moon Safari, I simply can't play the CDs through. Feel like I'm gonna OD on cotton candy. This one, BTW, seems a distant relation to Silkie's "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" or the Mojo Men's "Sit Down I Think I Love You".
my girlie gave this cd to me. it's awesome.
meh.
CHICK TUNE!
The more I listen to this song the more I like it.
i've always felt that this album would act as the perfect soundtrack to "The Davinci Code"

Hmm, I wonder - chick as in tweet, chick as in for the ladies, or chic as in French cool? Either or is okay by me - enjoying the soft vibe on RP.
Good one Mack!!! LOL (I enjoy this - and Air - too!)

This is fine, but Air never has recaptured the magic of Moon Safari, which was the total package.

I just love this song. It's soooooo sappy, but it grooves me.

Agreed. One of the few songs that has had the honor of beign purchased by me on iTMS.

Fantastic! Loving the playlist!
Their cover art prompts me to wonder...is Air really the square root of Talkie Walkie? Does Stephen Hawking know about this? I've yet to hear an Air tune I don't like.
Excellent song. Try Air's album called 'Moon Safari' thats definately their best CD to date.

Perhaps some of it is becoming your style? I used to loathe all country, period. Then I heard some old Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, and wow, my mind changed. I still can't stand most of what passes for country these days, but it's a cool experience when some music comes out of a genre I normally avoid, and pleases my ears.
That's so cool. Here's to open minds, hooray! :)
This song is wonderful. The rest of the cd is a piece of shit.
why don't we ever hear alpha beta gaga anymore? that song blows my mind. this one is pretty okay too.

i LOVe this song! :jump:
I recently picked up this CD and I love it. There's only one loser track for me (Biological doesn't get it done, but it's not awful) and the variety of sounds is great. I have to say though, the three instrumental tracks are my favorites.
Then call me an Airhead!
If people who like the Dead are Deadheads... ('nuff said)
Different... but nice. Almost like Zero 7?

check out the video on atomfilms. Guaranteed to give you a new perspective on the haunting beauty of this song... 8O
There's a strange harmony that reminds me of a Beatle's song from Beatle's VI--? "Do what you want to do, go where you're going to, think for yourself cuz I will be there for you..." It seems like the vocal harmonies are a direct copy.
One of my favorite songs from this group....hear the sea gulls and the waves in the background?
