I've got a hunger
Twisting my stomach into knots
That my tongue was tied off

My brain's repeating
"if you've got an impulse let it out"
But they never make it past my mouth.

Baa bah, this is the sound of settling
Baa bah, baa bah

Our youth is fleeting
Old age is just around the bend
And i can't wait to go grey

And i'll sit and wonder
Of every love that could've been
If i'd only thought of something charming to say.

Baa bah, this is the sound of settling
Baa bah, baa bah

I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots.

Cracklin' Rosie missed the 60's by a few months; close enough.
 
These guys seem to take a lot of influence from the 1960's - like their band name for starters.  Bah-bahs can be good - I agree, and I guess Cracklin' Rosie was close enough to that era as well. {#Wink}

C'mon, there's always room for "bah-bahs", and "Cracklin' Rosie" was not released in the 1960's.

"Bah-Bah"s were big in the 60s (think "Cracklin' Rosie").

And what's your bands name?
Perhaps I wasn't clear . . . I love all three bands. It's just the names that are silly beyond belief. Sometimes bands come up with awesome names (Metallica leaps to mind) and sometimes . . . not.

This (DCFC) is probably one of the top three dumb band names around, along with the Toad mentioned above. The last leg of the stupid tripod is Arctic Monkeys.

This band, as you know, got their name from an obscure British group called The Bonzo Dog Band(which featured Neil Innes, who also wrote songs for the Monty Python troupe.) I haven't listened to much of their stuff, but if they like Bonzo, they obviously have class.
Didn't Neil Innes also write all the songs for the Rutles? I love Bonzo Dog Band! RP should have "Hello Mabel" on the playlist!

What about such garbled syntax?
I really love this song. Muchas gracias!

Maybe RP just isn't my thing. I get so tired of this type of sound. Switching to radioio now.

Their best album by far, though I prefer The Postal Service project. Funny how much they can sound like Semisonic, of all bands.
Two years ago I shared an office with a guy who would not stop playing this song. Over and over and over. Gah.
Yep. This is their best album.

I must admit it's better than what I'm used to from DCFC, but still does not go beyond a 4
Anyone else checking these guys out this weekend in Austin? Excited to check them out, dig this tune quite a bit! :D
Top notch pop. Don't like the genre but this is too much. Good album also not exactly in the same vein.
This rocks the rock out!!!! WOOO HOOO . Chair dancing here!!!!!!!! :bounce:
This is an awesome, upbeat song. I'm glad to see it's on RP.
My favorite on the album. :)
I love this whole album.... great addition to the RP playlist.
