(Ashla Bhosle)
Karmany evaadhikaraste ma phalesu kadacana
Ma karma phala hetur bhur ma te sango'stv arkamani
Paritramaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam
Dharma samsthapanarthaya sambhavami yuge yuge

(Michael Stipe)
Fall over myself
Don't mean to interrupt
I was miles away
Things I forgot
Are the footstools of God
That's how I behaved
I frighten myself and folded my hand
As you talked to God

I love the way you dream (9x)

Even my most base complaint my sweet
My aims were lower
And even though all my restraint my sweet
My aim was clumsy
And even if there's only one thing I want for you
I want for you

I love the way you dream.

I love the way you love the way you dream, one for me one for you
One for me, one for you.

Get The Frig Out.....Turn Up. Turn On. Turn Out. This blows 10_+ Ev Er E Time!
If you like this then you really should get hold of the DVD. If you're open-minded to what they were trying to achive then it will leave you emotionally challenged. It's even better with a big screen and loud sound system.

This album was introduced to me by my closest friend at the time, and became a turning point in my life when I was really at rock bottom. Time heals, friends move on, but emotions never leave, even if you wanted them to.
Started with a 4 and ended up at 7
Might be Sanskrit.

I find taste-policing annoying.
I love to dream with theim. Very nice voices, message of hope and understanding
I immediately recognized Michael Stipe's voice.  It works here, very well.

 Arab??  Seriously? You may think what you want, but this is just not Arabic. At all!
From your statement, it seems that you believe one can only listen to things that come from the same world as oneself. Might try a different radio then...

Any idea what language Cocteau Twins sing in? Me either, but it is also often haunting and beautiful music.
so hauntingly beautiful ..
Definitely a Scarecrow song. All by itself & outstanding in it's own field
Very good music. I like it.
WOW....This one always grabs me by the Boo-Boo.
Someone has listened to a fair bit of Dead Can Dance.  Not a bad thing..or influence.  But getting close.
just listened to the whole album for the thousandth time. it is ALL outstanding. solid 9

i really like dead can dance too! fela kuti. expensive shit.
One of the coolest things I got to experience by traveling all over the world was exposure to music of other cultures; Bravo, RP for this!
My aim is: Paritramaya sadhunam vinasaya ca duskrtam
ask you lemme see,
lovely and compelling..

Thanks for playing this cd Bill! 

 
I concur. Excellent world album. Love Eddi Reader's contribution on other songs. This makes Michael Stipe tolerable. Recognized it by the first notes. Just brilliant melange.

It sounds like a poor-man's Radiohead married a poor-man's Coldplay, and invited a poor-man's Death Cab For Cutie for a threesome.
But I'm willing to be shown to be wrong ... if there's a better track. 

"Passion" (feat. Michael Franti) is a personal favourite (along with this track)  This album has so many different styles on it, but they just flow together so well!  I'm sure if you give it a listen you will find something you like.

Thanks for playing it Bill! 

 

 


great song, great DVD - what a spiritual journey
Don't. Like. This. At. All.

Nice to hear the full version of this!

Add "Daphne" to your rotation.  My favorite song.  The DVD version is better than the one on the CD, but I'll take either!  Wonderful concept album.  So much better than "What About Me?" (the 2nd 1GL release).  I hope they have more coming!

This is exactly why I listen to RP - I've discovered SO MUCH since making this my daily station.  You won't hear beauties like this on mainstream radio!
R.E.M. is an awful dated college band that thinks they are gods. Yes, I've met them and seen them plenty since 1984. Not one good thing to say about them. I turn off anything with Michael "Tripe". Whine all the time. 
Phenomenal concept album. (DVD is cool as well.)

I was sure that I had already commented on this, but it seems I haven't.  So, thanks Mr Riley, I agree with you entirely. ↑9.

ps amazing album

Ignorant and inaccurate comments become annoying. I've listened to RP for years and could count the Arabic-language songs on the fingers of one hand. Maybe you just mean 'forn lingos'? Neither is every "thirs" (sic) song in a foreign language - for the millionth time, don't exaggerate.

I know no Arabic, but the sound of it is distinctive, akin to Hebrew as both are Semitic languages. Very gutteral. The Hindi (I think) in this song is as close to Arabic as Gaelic is to English, or French is to Japanese.
cool tune bill, ya

What Asha Bhosle sings is a verse in Sanskrit. 
Hindi does derive a lot of it's vocabulary from Sanskrit.





 

Some things are simply lost in translation...in life. And then found again in unexpected places.

I've always liked this "collaboration". Just yesterday friend of mine posted the simple comment of "I Love Dreaming!" and I said, "And I Love the way you dream!" I then went to share a video and found there are as many strange and weird version of videos as there are in the versions I heard of the song.

Peaceful, and thanks for the translation....
Bad song, annoying.
Happy Solstice!
I've long considered Stipe, a great writer and lyricist, a middle of the road vocalist, akin to, say, Jagger. They have voices suitable for what they do, but you wouldn't ask them to join Ella for a remake of the Gershwin songbook. These voices are their most telling on quiet passages—you can't shout your way through something you have trouble singing. Stipe's voice on this song is surprisingly melodious, a good thing.
Perfect song for my Friday evening unwind from a hard day at work..

This is so awesome.  I'll be purchasing this on itunes.
Ah, thank you Bill!

I have been requesting this version of this song for some time, now. I love it!

Here is a translation of at least part of the Hindi lyrics:

You have Adhikara (ability, choice) over your respective duty only,
but no control or claim over the results.
The fruits of work should not be your motive.
You should never be inactive.
Whenever there is a decline of Dharma (world order) and the rise of
Adharma,
O Arjuna, then I appear (or manifest myself).
I appear from time to time for protecting the good,
for transforming the wicked, and for establishing Dharma, the world order.

And that bit at the beginning that was partially lost in the lovely segue is:

"Only Silence remains... because I have to listen to him,
I have to listen to the silence. I have to experience him."
{#Meditate}

What a voice. When Maoris in New Zealand are being tattooed by the old method, they use her singing as pain relief. I prefer it without the pain.
I much prefer the shorter version of this
Overrated. Downvoting.

I'm on record as making fun of this song, but it's really grown on me. I like it a lot.

this is a great album. well worth picking up. there's a very cool documentary out about the whole project. i recommend picking that up too.

Stopped and looked.  Off now to download.

Really nice.


LOVE IT!
Won't have a word said against this lovely track.......
...really enjoyed the first part.  But at the end it becomes a techno song?  I like plenty from that genre, but it seemed out of place at the end of that song.
Both rating as volume control are at "9".
this does nuttin for me
I definitely prefer this version to the other one in RP's library. Much prettier, and Michael Stipe sounds vocally smoother in this version.

What the hell...? How did I miss this? Two gorgeous and completely unique voices. Thanks again for digging out a little gem I would never have heard otherwise.

This is a GREAT album. I bought it a few years ago after watching a late night tv show about how these guys basically just toured the world picking up all the music as they went around. So for example, the two singing parts on this track were recorded totally separately. Its a really good album to introduce people to new music, if for example they would normally only listen REM or to Robbie Williams, who sings on an earlier track.

It sounds like a 12 year old playing with a digital editor.  Sorry.

Tempted to post something like 1 Giant Heap but I'll give it another listen before I do that.  Right now it's barely holding a 6.
1 Giant Leap is an excellent album, start to finish.  Please play more of it.
Most Excellent!

Me too. Makes the other version feel rushed. . .even though I never thought that before hearing this one.

Hi everyone, this is my upload. The song was indeed already in the playlist, but it was the single version, which is only 3 minutes long. I've proposed to Rebecca the "full version" (8 minutes) which comes from the album. It is longer, but far more interesting and beautiful IMHO. :)
 
It's beautiful. Glad you offered it up.

Has me thinking about our brothers and sisters enduring the violence over in India this morning...my thoughts are with you.
I try to be open minded about other peoples taste in music and it's extremely rare that I ever post a negative comment, but this thing gives me the most incredible headache. Please, please, please, if you have to play this, go back to the 3 minute version. Thank you.
My God!  It is still going!!

I always go to make a cup of tea when something awful comes on.  That way, I don't have to hear it and the chances are something decent will be on after.  I come back and this mindless, repetitive nonsense is still £*$*ing going!  AAARRGH!

On the plus side, I have finally figured out to get the pound sign on a Czech keyboard.  Silver lining and all that. :)
Thanks Bill & Rebecca - a truly beautiful and classy track.

You've more than doubled our suffering! 
I will try to forgive you for that...

...this version gets a gold sticker!..
holy sh*t this remix blows.
Brimful of Asha and Stipe on the 45 from the morning past the evening to the end of the light :chillpill:
*logging out*
I like this one a little more than the one with just Michael.
OUTSTANDING CD. Really great to listen to if you need to chiiilllll.
Damn, you people are whiney! This song is pleasant enough...and I'm not even a Stipe fan. Lighten up!
great baseline / drums

I don't mind the Stipe-only version, but this is definitely a better cut.
Huh... is this a longer version now?
I bought this song the first time I heard it on RP and I love it. It is so unique and beautiful-tranquil.
1 Giant Leap for crappy music.
Is this a droning, ponderous song or did I just take another pill?
Bought this and several other 1 Giant Leap tracks after hearing them here. Good stuff to work to!
I've heard this crap at least once a day on RP for the last 4 years and now we get the stinking remix. Why are we subjected to such repeatition when there is so much geat music available?
So this track got extended, neh?
Terrible naggy song this one.. annoying.
hadn't heard this before initially got a 8 progressively went down to a 6...

Superbe. Merci pour l'effort.
That took one giant leap to an 8 (groan)

prefer the other version, more stipe! :think: :think:
michael stipe stopped trying... it should come as no surprise that he and Thom Yorke are friends. :grumpy:
please, no more! :pray: :stop:
I'm actually digging something a little different in the background. This is cool.
Amazing, love the Indian vocals. Wow. Happy New Year, indeed.

Absolutely stunning. Thank you.

Wondering what Yoko's been up to
oh lord here we go again
This song gets longer every time I hear it and I don't like it.
ugh. 3 minutes would have been plenty now if you can get Rebecca/Bill to play the full 45 second piano chord at the end of A Day In The Life, that would be great. Red_Dawn wrote:
