Jesus on the radio
You took a photograph of me
On your yellow bucket seat
It's too high it's too wide
You're so low you don't know
To get through to go around

So don't look back

There ain't nothing there to see
Was once like you
Can't say I recognize that face
In that picture that you keep

It's too high it's too wide
You're so low you don't know
To get through to go around
To get through to go around

How about Mohammed's Radio
Great little diddy!!! Best live when everyone sings too!



Why have I not become a huge fan yet? This is great. I mean, they had me at the banjo, but this is quite wonderful.

I think I hear a Jew's Harp at the end of this song too.

And they put on a hell of a live show too!

That's funny — considering that Jesus was a Jew, so I guess they wouldn't mind having one of their own on their radio; he seemed to attract crowds wherever he went so he could have been a big hit on the radio over there.


Love love love this album...and Guster!
The harmony kings! I am a sucker for a good harmony!{#Meditate}

You'll never hear America (the group) here. {#Lol}
I've tried to upload a few gems from them here (R.Paradise) with no luck.
There's been 7 songs uploaded by them... all rejected.

70% of fabricated statistics are within 23.3% of being correct.
I just saw Guster at the Showbox in Seattle (September 22). They really put on a great show, and the audience loved every minute.

Actually, a good part of Guster is Jewish. Apparently it didn't bother them enough to stop them from writing the song.

60% of the people who "celebrate" christmas are actually athiest. Christmas in the west has grown into less a religious holiday and more of a national holiday in the last 40 odd years. so stop complaining, and perhaps start enjoying yourself. btw. merry xmas.

That may be true, but until Adam Sandler's "Channukah Song" hit the airwaves, you didn't hear any Channukah songs playing on the radio at the same time of year. And I'm sure there are quite a few people that would disagree with your assessment of what Christmas means to them, though I tend to agree that most people don't celebrate Christmas with its original intentions in mind. Commercialism reigns supreme that time of year. That being said... saw Guster a couple of months ago and they closed the show with a completely unplugged version of this song, the members of the band standing side-by-side at the front of the stage, and it sounded fantastic. Here's an excerpt from their website that pertains to the comments at hand:
Q: Are you guys a Christian band? A:Rather than answer this one with a simple yes/no, we suggest you check the following sources for clues: 1) Brian's last name -- "Rosenworcel." 2) Any photo of Ryan where you can see his profile. 3) The Guster Backstage Contract Rider, where we stipify that "the dressing room must be furnished with plenty of borscht, noodle kugels, potato latkes, gefilte fish and homemade rugulah for dessert."
:lol:
Well 1/2 of Guster is comprised of Jewish band members... JokesandJokesandJokes wrote:

Excellent! Check out the rest of the CD as well. It is very much worth it.
I have been with Guster since thier very first album. If there is a more talented, clever, or soulful rock trio from the mid to late nineties around, I have yet to hear them. Every album has a uniqueness. A feeling. Every song has depth, tactileness, and soul. They are the most exciting group to see live that I've encountered in the last five years, but make sure to get them in a small venue, not the big ones like when they tour with John Mayer, Counting Crows, etc... Buy, download, beg, borrow, or steal anything that you cen get your hands on with "Guster" on the label... If you appreciate anything tasteful, you will not be disapointed.
kinda crunchy...I like em! Please play more for us Bill...thanks!!!!
For all those that have been commenting on Guster lately, trying to classify them as a "Cure rippoff" or "Old school REM" or "Post 2000 Toad the Wet Sproket" Band... Although I agree there are similar traits that Guster may borrow at times I believe this song and further listening throughout Guster's catologue will show that they are THEIR OWN BAND with more than just one simple repeated style. I think it's hard to find bands of this quality lately and if anyone get's a chance to see them live, you wont regret it. Plus these guys have a a lot of fun and seem really down to Earth. I think I heard someone at Rolling Stone say that if there were any justice, Guster would have been made a huge nationally recognized success 2 albulms ago. I agree. That's just my oppinion, I could be wrong. -Dennis Miller
what a sound! what a groove! i'm diggin' it muchly! :clap:
Guster! I love these guys
One of my favorite songs from Keep It Together.
