You want to begin again. Pretend you're innocent.
If you believe, you can convince yourself. I'm sure you can convince yourself.

This town never gave you much back. Just rumors and a whispering attack.
This town is not your friend. Never mind the loose ends.

Take me with you when you go now. Don't leave me alone.
I can't live without you. Take me with you, take me with you when you go.

And I don't care about the things I leave at home.
Cause things can't really keep you company when you're alone now.

You want to burn your bridges? I'll help you start the fire.
You want to disappear? I got the manual right here.
You say you want my help? I can't help myself.
You want my help? I can't help myself.

Take me with you when you go now. (take me with you take me with you)
Don't leave me alone. (don't leave me alone)
I can't live without you. Take me with you, take me with you when you go.

Take me with you when you go now. (take me with you take me with you)
Don't leave me alone. (don't leave me alone)
I can't live without you. Take me with you, take me with you when you go. Ahh.

Without RP, I would never discover this absolutely unique band. So sad that Mark passed away.
Top Floor this song is!!!
I know; I can miss things, but I've never heard this before, and its amazing.

I agree. The saxaphone is amazing but together they were fantastic

I started listening to Morphine around the time Cure for Pain was released after seeing them play a gig at Toronto's Harbourfront. Cure for Pain is a great album, possibly their best, and while their intervening releases were OK, they never lived up to the promise of that sophomore release, except for this album. Dark, brooding, and brilliant. All the more sad that Mark Sandman went before his time, who knows what might have followed. RIP MS.
 

It's Like Swimming for me.
Uninspired sax. Not for me!

Unless you're my wife - she who does not metabolize Morphine - though she digs several of the Morphine tracks on RP....still an 8 and ALWAYS;  Long Live RP!!

BillG spins a few Morphine tracks here, my fav being "Top Floor Bottom Buzzer" 
Too bad MS and the band died back in 1999....Long Live RP and these great Morphine tracks!!

Anyone know if the Orchestra Morphine project is any good?  
Trying.

Still not my opiate of choice. 
{#Meditate} very much liked this final album
I like this track, although it sounded like (another) cover of the old Hank Williams tune "Hey Good Lookin'" - that dang melodic hook that made it into the Country HoF.  Anyways, I like the cool vibe on this one enough to counter-act that country twang in my head, so I'm gonna rate it an 8.  Long Live RP!!
badass
9 > 10 - Just about perfection.
stone groove - gets an 9

I love Morphine! Well, the band, not the drug.  Just makes me nauseous.

Love.

Creepy, needy ballad with saxophone? No thanks.
Sorry, I just don't like this band.

Morphine was not my favorite band because I didn't really get their style. But, having read (on Wikipedia) about them, Mark Sandman, and the other band members who've gone on in Mark's memory, I appreciate Morphine much more. Funny how that works…
Too contemplative for listening to any old time, but perfect so often. Can you imagine what he'd have done if still alive? RIP.
great comment! Love Morphine

Reminds me of every clingy, over-dependent boyfriend I've ever had.

Perfect description! No one that I know has ever sounded like these guys. Wish there could be no end to the music....

This song always sounds like an eerie premonition to me.
Still miss them, particularly since I took it for granted that I'd see them around town sometime, and never did {#Frown}. Don't pass up an opportunity to see a favorite!

Keep this hippie chick rockin', folks. LOL
Nice segue from John Mayall's "California" to this vastly superior song. Edit: one of my favorite Morphine songs.

More Morphine please....the band is good also!

 

I like so many others, missed these guys in the 90's and have discovered them thanks to RP.  I have 3-4 of their CD's now and can't get enough of them.  They are so cool.  Can't beleive Sandman died on stage.  Too tragic.
Morphine. So addicting

OK, how did I ever miss this band when they came around?  They're really good.

Were they banned in the Deep South USA?  (We do have narrow-cast radio around here.)
This tune was a nice slide from the Mayall.
This is why I listen.

Thanks for showing the kids how it was done.
Loved how relaxing and real it made me feel

MORPHINE is good - I like the band and their idea of music!

Still - guitar (or another lead) is missing,...somehow!

"7"

Strange: I heard this and thought how good it was, just to see that I had rated it pretty low already. It must be the right time for me now...

Love everything Bill plays of this band.  I think I'm becoming an addict.
Love that sax, only discovered Morphine once I started to listen to RP and now I am really into their music. 
Wonderful. As usual.
Morphine fan here. Like it.

Sax, drugs n rock n roll {#Whipit}

Weird. I have yet to hear a Morphine song that I liked.
 
It's an acquired taste. 

Nice groove! One more to buy from I-Tunes!
Near the end of the song, that bass with those sax melodies are just awsome!  Whole thing is a above likeable.

Great fusion of bass, sax, and strings. Awesome sax melodies with that bass riff.

Agreed. Simply don't like it that much. Something monotonous about it even though it has apealing aspects.
Never heard these guys. It sounds pretty cool. Dark and moody but then I've been a longtime Floyd fan so why not! This song sounded like a mutated Beck with Grant Lee Buffalo. How long have these guys been around?


the slutty sax can be as addicting as   . . . .

You know, if he and Chris Issak had ever done a duet, it might just driven me out of my mind...in a good way...{#Drool}

I got a older morphine album at the library a few months ago. It was good, but sounded a lot different than this.

I just commented that the last Mayall song sounded like Morphine.  Bill — Get outta my head!  {#Tongue-out}
morphine and that slutty sax. . . what a combo!

Morphine is compelling....  like bad drugs.

It's like I can't help myself.  I don't really like it that much but somehow I am compelled or forced to pay attention.

 

Nasty.  hehe

 

P.S. So Bill? What's the theme with this run of songs? Great male vocals?



Thank you for great music!
Thank you Mark
goodbye, gooluck mark!

Forget about me, just go.
Sax and Violins on TV, and Radio? How is that bad for you?
Saxy !
The peak of a great band IMO. What an incredible album.

What a seque from Mayall''s California. Bill, brother, you're in my head...
I saw them open up for Little Feat at Loyola College in Baltimore. It was a short set. Little Feat was smoking. supergroverx wrote:

Perfect accompaniment for old Scotch and a dark night.
now i know why i like this song. the harsh strings remind me of zappas willie the pimp.
Miss you, Sandman

I like the nighthawks-at-the-diner-esque mood in this one. Late night music at its best. :cool:
I think I've never heard a Morphine song I haven't liked. This dark song is full of longing and desperation.

True, and how cool would it have been to hear Wendy & Lisa with Sandman?!
WARNING: Not the Prince song.
if it's possible to love and hate a song simultaneously, that's what i'm doing right now. and i've got a soft-on and a hard-off at the same time, also.

Is it possible to write a song that doesn't have the same saxophone riff for a change? I have a fever and the prescription is NOT more saxophone. :puke:
You have a fever and it's needs more good taste. Morphine is one of the most inventive bands of the 90s.
Morphine - Take Me With You John Mayall - California Peter Gabriel - Lovetown great sequel! 8 on the average throughout

I believe this was Sandman's last album before he died on stage in Italy. This song is eerily ironic, given this background. Still classic Morphine, with more instrumentation than usual. More than ironic, very eerie. Completely grips me when I hear it.
I agree
Goose bumps...
Morphine are so very distinctive, where else can you hear this breezy sexy saxy sound? :dance: Take Me With You? :motor: ................ Please?
