The loneliness at times
I can feel it open wide
I can wander through the past
And believe it for a while

We were younger
Oh the way you turned my head, ooooh

The things we used to have
Are fading all too fast
Like a castle in the sand
Well some things they're meant to last

We were younger
Oh the way you turned my head, ooooh

I wonder if I'd care
If I saw you again
Would you hurt me like before
Or would happiness be there

We were younger
Oh the way you turned my head, ooooh

Ok, but remember its all about the curing.......oh! wrong site......
I was gonna say, "that sounds like a low-tuned guitar," then I noticed the song title. 
I thought this was a John Lennon solo song I had never heard before.  Interesting!
All the tracks I've heard from this punfully titled* album are nice. Which is a pity as the earlier Supergrass albums were far from "nice" - raw edgy quirky and a lot more fun and kickass. I've driven the highway in France through Rouen... it too is nice; safe and bland.
Low C, does that have any thing to do with Low T?

This is actually better than most of the crap John did post Beatles. But yes a good model to copy most of the time.

Despite the obvious influences, Supergrass still has a very distinctive sound.  One of the most under-rated bands I can think of. 
{#Bananapiano} I think john would like it !
ahhhh -

Spring time and Supergrass - a great combo that goes great together. 
I hear Julian.
Great album!

I remember that kind of ethereal, yet entirely physical 'high'....
Beautiful song - great use use of acoustic guitar and piano.  
Also a great video for this song, if you happen to be interested.

If your a fan of Supergrass and appreciate similar music from a band that is long lived, check out Sloan.

They are about to release the 10th album of their 20 year career, "The Double Cross". 
 
Alas. . . from the 11th June 2011, Supergrass were no more. . . shame.
This album is both good and important—it does it all, and its influence continues.

Agree, but it really makes me appreciate all the more the ones that stayed together.

I totally agree.  And if not for RP, I never would have bought it.

Can do.




I think this song is underrated. The music and lyrics build great images of nostalgia.
Sounds a lot like the beatles...which is a good thing, of course.

I keep hearing this CD, and everything on it sounds good. Maybe I should buy it, huh?
This evocates a mixture between Lennon and Harrison, somehow (that voice)


Hey, it's Bob Seger's "Fire Lake"..with different lyrics—-and sung by John Lennon!
crapy song
They have a new album out. It's much more rockin than Road to Rouen. I like it a lot more. Reminds me of their older material.
YES BRMC !! artmaven wrote:

Yep. I hear the BRMC in this and I hear the occasional Lennon in Howl which has seldom left the CD changer in my car.
 


Life forms all have influences. This is really enjoyable music that appears to be made by people who enjoy making it. I thank RP for exposing me to this band and this album.

I really enjoy this album, another RP enlightenment! They obviously take influence from The Beatles, as well as many other places. I don't think they're overtly copying anyone, just trying to capture some of the same elements, with success. Well produced music, IMO. It's definitely one of my top 20 album purchases of the last couple years.
Completely agree. The first time I listened to them, I thought The Beatles meet Pink Floyd :music:

What's so wrong with wanting to aspire to greatness? children wish to be like their role models artists wish to be like the masters musicians wish to be like the greats and on and on... sounding like the Beatles is a great compliment as far as I can tell...if you're into the Beatles sound. sounding like Otis Redding, or Marvin Gay, or Brian Wilson, or John Mayall, or Herbie Hancock, or Wynton Marsalis, or Charles Mingus, or John Coltrane... painting like Monet, or Klimt, or Kandinsky, or Van Dyke, or Rothko... playing like Tiger, or Ripken, or Unitas, or Pele... living like MLK, or Ghandi, or Ben Franklin, or Carnegie, or whatever diety you choose for that matter writing like RW Emerson, or PD Eastman, or Frost, or, Samuel Clemens... and on and on...you get my point. whatever you aspire to or believe in, right? isn't this how we define greatness to some degree? if no one ever grooved on the work of those we collectively consider great...wouldn't those supposed "greats" just have been masturbating all along? i would guess that one could only hope to someday be referred to as "sounds like, or writes like, or lives like, or plays like **insert supposed greatness here**"...what a statement of high regard...assuming you're not a gimmicky, no-talent hack of course.

if you get a chance to see Supergrass live.......go for it, they put on an awesome live show! Just saying...
Totally bland.
God, everytime I hear this I think its a young Lennon.
Is it Supergrass or rather Supertramp...? :ask:
I think the backing female vocals are processed through a Leslie Speaker (or a Leslie simulator).
I just bought this album after hearing a couple of tunes here on RP. The whole album is great, except I don't really see how the song "Coffee In The Pot" belongs on the album. It's growing on me, but I don't get that song.
Huh. Sounds like a lost Beatles/Lennon track again...must be Supergrass.

Not that you asked; I'd supercede OutKast with King Crimson's Starless and Bible Black (or "Red" if you like really angry music; never mind that pussy rap sound, it wont last)

Wow could've swore that was Lennon's voice I heard...very cool
Been hearing alot of Supergrass on RP....very Beatle-esch. Is that Julian?
"Who wants to go to Fire Lake..." Oh, wait. Nevermind. It's John Lennon. Oh, wait. Nevermind.
great video: https://exodus.interoutemediaservices.com/deliverMedia.asp?id=1907467e-f3bf-430c-aeaa-6ddfead57d20&delivery=stream
Such a gorgeous song...
Sounds like a lost Lennon track, for sure. How else would I know it's Supergrass?

Sure does.
One of the few major uk bands of the indie/britpop generation that have truly stood the test of time. A tribute to their ability to evolve musically from those early times. A far cry from the early days but a damn good far cry!
I think Supergrass is just... super! :yes:

Thanks--I'm there.
For a current band, these guys sure capture the retro spirit effectively. They sound like something we should have heard on the late night Bleaker Street radio show...Did anybody else used to listen to that in the late 60s, early 70s?
