I hold it all to the love in her eyes
Lord knows I can feel her, see her, in my mind
And her spoken words ring through my head
Though I'm lost, I can hear them calling me there

Hey, the song, do you feel (feel)
Leave your light on through the night
Love (love) and loss so dear
You know it's a long way home

Well a lonely road to the promised land
May be long but I see the end some day
To broken lives on the mountain side
Out in the cold, kinda hurried shifting sands

They're in the other world to where you lie
Pulling your heart then the ravens say goodbye

Hey, the song, do you feel?
And leave your light on through the night
Loss, from .... so dear
You know it's a long way home

I guess I'm the only one who hears George more than John. I thought of Harrison immediately. 
Echoes of Blue Jay Way in terms of voice distortion (or however they did it back then) 
Nice song regardless.
Edit: Correction...found two others from 14 years ago.
Nice transition from Pearl Jam's Given to Fly đź‘Ś

The flaming Lips with John Lennon
Beautiful melody, but way too depressing lyrics for my taste.
This sounds like that Pearl Jam song that sounds like the Zeppelin song.
With this following that oasis song, surely a beatles track is next. I am hoping...
Does he get that effect on his vocals by singing through a Leslie speaker?

I think you mean 'Given To Fly'.

Always seems to catch, reach out to me.  Touches something sentimental, takes me to a time, a place.  Not something i'd seek out, seems to seek me out and draw me into a reminiscent state o mind.  Something i like in this rotation!

Fits my chillin state o mind!

An end perhaps, but based on some of the lyrics, maybe not the loss of a living lover:

Wow. Tonight your suggestion REALLY makes sense, and hits home to my core.
8 becomes 9,  and Long Live RP!!

A superb, well-done song. Shimmering vocals and ringing strings (like West Indian Girl) transport me somewhere else. TRIPPY BLISS

 
Agreed!  I'm going 7→8 today, finding that I REALLY like this track.  I wonder though...is 'Fin' a reference to the French word "End?"  As in, the end of a relationship? 

Actually...nevermind...I'm enjoying this enough w/out any lost love concepts.  Long Live RP!!

Ok I have a crummy little speaker in my hotel room but I thought it was something I missed by John Lennon!

Good luck with that, Perry Mason.
Reminds me of that Flaming Lips album that was produced by George Martin....
I love this song, but I really thought it was Ween at first!

I'm such a sucker for the vocal processing in this song...
Gaz Coombes new album Matador is terrific in my humble opinion….
Ahhhhh, I played this entire album at work today. This is such a nice ending to a great piece of music. 
Laid back, relaxed sound
Are we SURE that is not Daniel Ash singing?!!
I was thinking about Pink Floyd, if it resembles so many styles, maybe it got something in it {#Group-hug}

Does no one think this vocal resembles Annie Lennox?

Maybe. But it more resembles Lennon's Beautiful Boy in music and lyrics.

Yeah, 'cause we know that Zeppelin isn't guilty of ripping music off.  I guess two wrongs don't make a right though...
Have to agree on the Lennon similarity.  Exactly the song that popped into my head.

I like this band a lot, but this tune is a bit smarmy.
Yup, we're going to california here :)

this song just shimmers like the reflection of the sun on the sea
Nobody really needs super grass,
avarage homegrown does the job!

But even supergrass cannot help this boring piece!
Another song that borrows the melody of Going to California.  The PJ song is Given to Fly.

Nothing wrong with that — steal from the best - good tune.

this song already makes me feel nostalgia for a few summers ago.
ahhhhhh...Im in my happy place now...

They are no more from tonight. Last concert in Paris.
 
After many years of spreading global bonhomie, releasing a collection of classic singles and six great studio albums, SUPERGRASS announce that they have split due to the 17 year itch. 

The group will play 4 farewell shows in June, starting at Glasgow Barrowlands on June 8 and ending with their final ever show in Paris on June 11. 

The group formed in 1993 and their first single, the era-defining “Caught By The Fuzz”, was released in 1994; since then they have gone on to carve their totally idiosyncratic and not insubstantial niche in rock music over six studio albums and some of the punchiest singles of our time. 

The group said today: “Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years. We still love each other but, cliché notwithstanding​,​ musical differences have led to us moving on and of course we all wish each other well in the future”

Super Album!
Supergrass brings it. Not sure what "it" is, but it's the $hit.
Yes.....{#Meditate}

Yes this song and many others on this CD are derivative of the Beatles but is that a bad thing.  

 No.  Late 60s psychedelic Beatles. Sheer genius.


nice and dreamy.
Follow this up with John Lennon's Beautiful Boy.

sounds a little "Ween"ish, huh.  This is a good album that I wouldn't have purchased if I hadn't heard 'em on RP.

I like to think that they are just wearing their influences on their sleeves with this one.

Oh, we're going to that place today, are we? {#Sad}

beautiful song, great selection!

Funny...I thought the same thing.

Sounds like Led Zeppelin's "Going to California"...

All I could hear was Goin' to California

"Someone told me there's a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair..."

Just that one musical phrase that almost matched completely (till the end where I think it dips down instead of up) with the Led Zep tune.


Delicioso.. así sea el final...
lennonized definitely
need to starch it up a bit boys

if they made versions "covers" would be more still acceptable  -

mmmmm
Maybe the time was not all ready for Supergrass then, or maybe they drowned in the sea of all the other bands. This is great
great tune heard it for the first time today :clap:
"super grass" I had some of that back in the 70's
Love the high chiming guitar tones! Good vocals, too.
The intro made me look... Oh, it's that album again. I'm afraid my wife will curse me once more for an impulsive buy.. until she hears this!
LOVE this, and this album.

They've changed quite a bit since the old days haven't they..? Nice though. Apparently they're a major influence for Dave Grohl(sp?) and the Foo Fighters..

You could do worse than being musically influenced by Lennon. Having just recently started looking at the comments section of the RP play list, I find it interesting that many seem to be compelled to make negative comments ... as if doing so somehow makes them "hipper than thou". Making a negative comment is easy, any fool can do it. It does'nt give the critic more artistic sensibility or give the critisism more credibility because the comment is negative. I listen to and support Radio Paradise because of incredible mix of music ... from Apple to Zevon and everything in between. I'm not going to rush out and by every CD I hear, but I am educated and grow musicaly by every selection I listen to. Music is a wonderful gift and there is something to appreciate in almost every offering here on RP.
Very well stated! And true...
Where's the "overplayed" rating?
Bill, stop playing with our ears! First pearl jam's given to fly, then this song... 100 € say that this set will finish with the real Going to California :D More, more, more I feel like a hippie already! :group-hug: :daisy: :group-hug: :meditate:

Same here. Had the volume on low and thought it was a cover.
the first part is very much given to fly-like... it must be the tour they did together that inspired them :)

mmmmmm hmmm... hey man, you want some of this heroin?
to the other music comparisons, i'd add cocteau twins -
Honestly I thought it was some Lindsey Buckingham one-off or some lost Fleetwood Mac track. What is the nice way to put it? Something about flattery? Great track though.

Can't understand why someone didn't tell them when they were recording the song, 'Hey, Guys, uhhhh, sounds a lot like Going to California, you know Zeppelin'.
