I was her
She was me
We were one
We were free
Anf if there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

We were young
We were wrong
We were fun
All along
And if there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

When you get to where you want to go
And you know the things you want to know
You're smiling
When you said what you want to say
And you know the way you want to play it
You'll be so high you'll be flying

Tho' the sea
Will be strong
I know we'll
Carry on
Cos if there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

When you get to where you want to go
And you know the things you want to know
You're smiling
When you said what you want to say
And you know the way you want to play it
You'll be so high you'll be flying

I was her
She was me
We were one
We were free
And if there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

You chose THIS song to comment negatively on? There are sooooooo many other worthy candidates.... Tori Amos, Vienna Tang, Goldfrapp.......
 
Vienna Teng? I would ask why, but it is difficult to communicate with retarded people. Please stop spreading your moronic opinions. If you try to disrespect someone, at least get their name right.

Please, have a Mummy snack. It's extra crispy...

Sorry

World Party 7 - Robbies boring cover 3
ehehe, seems that there is a debate as to which version is best. I didn't know this one existed. I only knew Robbie's version until today, maybe that influence my judgement but this one here doesn't seem to have much energy and makes the song very soppy . Plus, I can't help and visualise the video clip Robbie Williams has done to this song, it's such a cool and funny one. I'll give him the lead even if it is not the best song he has sung. Robbie 6, World Party, 3.
Robbie Williams in the UK killed this song stone dead, sadly.  
Too bad. I usually like World Party, but this one is just ho-hum. I'm a 3
High number of "3" ratings for this one.  Hmmmm.
A beautiful song, thanks Karl
Hey! This sounds almost like - yep, World Party.....hmmm.  {#Think}

Just one single word comes into my mind:

Why?

very nice!
One big LIKE.
I'm a big fan of World Party, but I'm not sure about this one...
Not a big fan of World Party - but sure like this one.
Cool !  I think World Party might be even better than the Water Boys

Great Tune 
I've always loved this song...
love it
thankyou thankyou thankyou
More World Party is better...  Bumper stickers should be issued.

{#Clap}
World Party is good

The only version I have heard is not by Robbie Williams or World Party and it was much better than this; does anybody know who else did this song?{#Question}

Indeed it did.  It was used to very good effect in The Matchmaker (which is, incidentally one of the funniest movies of all time).  Love this song and love that film {#Hearteyes}

Clip of film on YouTube

For me Robbie Wiliams was first, too. Didn't know it was a cover version either. In my opinion Robbie Williams' voice added something more wild to it though, I like his version better - considering that this still remains a boring cheesy song after all.

Now THAT is funny... {#Bounce}Thanks for the laugh as I can just picture Owen Wilson deep in thought as this tune plays over a montage of good times / bad times in their "on screen" relationship (e.g., Jennifer Anniston). {#Rolleyes}  I just saw Marley & Me over the weekend...

I walked down the aisle to this song. Very sad to hear Robbie Williams did a cover of it....

this is so much better by world party - first time i hear it, its a different song!
This song is pretty decent, but the bad news is I heard Robbie Williams' version first, therefore ruining it forever for me. That guy is such an imbecile.
I adore Karl Wallinger. There. I've said it.


Fantastic. 


Insipid.
ah, i love this song. world party. nice.

Great band, nice song...spoiled forever as I can't get Robbie Williams's version out of my head...just shows how little talent he had, can't write or sing, and when he covers another song..he tries to sing it just like the original.
Totally agree - RW - shouldn't that stand for Right Wanker!!! Do like the song - first time I've heard this version.
First time I had heard them was live in concert in San Diego. I was blown away and have been a fan ever since. Yes, Goodbye Jumbo is one of my favorite albums.
Back to the music now... Karl Wallinger and World Party were so fabulous in their day...until serious health issues derailed the music for a while. This is a lovely song, but - as others have noted - you should check out the album Goodbye Jumbo in particular, if you don't know the band. It's easily one of the best albums of the '90s. Private Revolution that preceded it and Bang! and Egyptology that followed were all excellent as well. For you 'Greatest Hits' types, try Best of Show from last year, which is heavily tilted toward the first two albums. :sunny:

That sounds right... I can`t imagine Robbie having the imagination or songwriting skills needed to write a song as good as this one.
Hmmm........always good to learn something, Robbie Williams covered this song. I didnt' knew that.
repetitive...repetitive...repetitive...repetitive...repetitive

Private Revolution. Goodbye Jumbo from '91 was great, and the song "Way Down" is very stone-esque. In a good way of course.

IMO those people take themselves too seriously and really need to get over it. It's their choice to be offended or not, actually. When someone says "Jesus!" or "Christ!", it has nothing to do with anyone else. It's just a common colloquialism. I can't be suppressing and holding myself back every time someone gets offended over this word or that word. Sure, there are some words that are truly nasty and have a really rotten history and I wouldn't say to anyone. But what if a whole group of people came along who decided to become offended every time someone said "man," (as in "Oh man, this really sucks!")? Would you stop using the word man like that? I wouldn't. Especially not in the name of peace. True peace comes from within, not from walking on eggshells every time we speak so as not to offend someone.
man, love this guy's voice. great track. great band.

Love this. Karl is da man!
Karl Wallinger does it the best. Shameless pop is just so darn disarming. I love this song for some of the same reasons that I love John Lennon's Imagine. It's got heart and soul.
:good-vibes:

This is the original. Robbie Williams' version was the cover.

If there was ever a band that didnt get the repect they deserve WP is it.
Damn... phone rang half way through that. :frown:
This song was whiney and boring enough when Robbie Williams sang it. How these guys have managed to make it sound more mundane is beyond me.

They're note for note identical! So it boils down to whose voice you prefer - in my case that's Karl's. :)
World Party? Sounds like a pretty damned boring event.
Except she's not, not really.

Completely agreed. This version pales in comparison to Robbie's. And Robbie is technically a one hit wonder here in the US- with "Millenium" But you're right- its amazing how huge he is in the UK and fairly unknown here......
Not only in UK, the whole of Europe is covered by Robbie-Maniacs. This year his Europe tour was sold out within hours. Only in Munich he announced two additional gigs, playing in front of 50.000 people on each of the 3 gigs in Munich. Two in Berlin and two in other major cities of Germany only. You should take a look at his DVDs called "What we did last Summer" from 2003. I didn't like the boy band he was originating from. But Robbie as himself is an entertainer who knows how to capture the audience.
Hmm - I like the cover version by Robbie Williams better - this one's really boring... But it's also one of the weaker songs sung by Robbie...
:yell: wood love 2 hear 'Ship Of Fools' from Private Revolution on RP!
The world is just full of stealers. True talent doesn't erupt from copycats! Viva la revolution! anyhow, this song is better than robbie's counterpart, and shameless to say, robbie's version sounds exactly vaguely like this which is an even BIGGER shame on him. Christ, I need a beer.
Actually spoiled by Robbie Williams, too much like Elton John now...
Wow, haven't heard this guy in years..lost track after the 'Bang' album - he's a shameless John Lennon ripper and i'm not sure if i like this one, but 'Way Down Now' and 'Ship of Fools' are classics.

Try looking up the original on "Life thru a lens" by Robbie Williams - it's even better.
Actually the song was written by Karl Wallinger of World Party and originally recorded by them and susbsequently covered by Robbie Williams. For what it's worth I think Robbie's verison is the better of the two.

Really the only decent song off this album.....please play almost anything off the "Bang!" CD....SO much better
Ooh, I love, love, love this song! It just gets to me, you know? Makes me wanna... :hug: Too bad it was played in a stupid movie.

"On the left, one cross each" KW gets the respect for writing this stuff, and also being a slightly under rated in my view.
Radio World Paradise Party!
I love World Party...as far as I know, the last disc was never even released in the states despite some great reviews in the U.K. press. Anyone know if Wallinger is still recording?
Great album... was hoping for more before vanishing.
Never heard this one before from World Party...man, I'm still waiting to hear those words in real life! 8)
Please play something from "Goodbye Jumbo".
Mmm. Luzzzz Wurld Pawrty. She da wunn! Dass a 10!
These are the guys that have the original right?

KW enjoyed some rather large royalties when Robbie Williams covered this. No grudge held, I'm sure.
it is about i heard some world party on this station. I love this band immensly! wow....soul touching voices, lyrics and mix. thank you thank you thank you!

I have it too, and never really gave it a good listen. This song stands out, as well as Love Is Best. Great songs. :)
Kinda slow getting off the ground, but the build-up towards the end was nice.

i always liked World Party. this song is nice...not thrilling but pretty good. sweet.
