Extreme ways are back again, extreme places I didn't know
I broke everything new again, everything that I'd owned
I threw it out the windows, came along, extreme ways I know
Will part the colors of my sea, perfect color me
Extreme ways that help me, help me out late at night
Extreme places I had gone but never seen any light
Dirty basements, dirty noise, dirty places coming through
Extreme worlds alone, did you ever like it planned?
I would stand in line for this, there's always room in life for this

Oh baby, oh baby, then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby, then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby, then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby, like it always does, always does

Extreme sounds that told me, they helped me down every night
I didn't have much to say, I didn't give up the light
I closed my eyes and closed myself and closed my world and never opened
Up to anything that could get me along
I had to close down everything, I had to close down my mind
Too many things that caught me, too much can make you blind
I've seen so much in so many places, so many heartaches, so many faces
So many dirty things, you couldn't even believe
I would stand in line for this, it's always good in life for this

Oh baby, oh baby, then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby, then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby, then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby, like it always does, always does

Copy Paste without any kind of artistic skills. By far the strongest of my rare misunderstandings with RP's stuff.
 
Time to take a deep breath.  He's every bit an artist.  
That screaming wailing tone in the background is drilling its way into my cerebellum!

not sure what it is about the borrowed background elements of this tune, they bring to mind old chop-socky fliks

When I hear this these days in various forms (which isn't very often), all I know is that the latest Bourne movie is over.
Did not particular care for the remake of this song used in the last Bourne with Matt Damon. Should have stuck with the original.

Movie was also not up to speed compared to the first 3.

It was, but a different newer version if I remember correctly.

Same playlist today(?!) Moby awfulness followed by a "cleanse" at the Elvis Costello Spa.
I don't care if Moby is classified as cheap / commercial music, this album "18" and the previous "play" never fail to catch my attention and put me in that comfortable, peaceful mood. I like what Moby does and it's a pleasure hearing it here once in a while :)
Can't get to the PSD button quickly enough. Terrible singing. Marginal songwriting. Repetitive. Sucko Barfo.
Just horrible. Pure crap, sorry. Milli Vanilli rhythm and some untasteful stuff over. (sorry for my bad English)
PSD!

Moby was halfway decent until he started trying to sing.   Really hard to listen to.

I'm pretty sure that much of the reason I like this song is its connection to the movie. Otherwise, it's a little drab. 
Oh man, now I have the greatest urge to watch the Bourne films!
Outstanding!  Got my attention while cooking!!!
This is a pretty good song besides the fact that none of the lines rhyme, and the words sound about as awkward as reading the phone book. I get the idea they banged it out the night before the release date or something.
Owie Vocals!
great morning song, as the sun rises
Add a little imagery to the music!:

I pretty much like EVERYTHING about RP except the release dates are "effed" on approx. 20% of the cuts.  I've been petitioning a change for Ziggy Stardust to the correct year of '72, and I can't get it done.
 
I'm going to say this without investigating specifics (i.e. your example): some of the dates are for various post-releases and re-mastered versions. Anything that is not an exact copy of the original (such as a master copy or maybe even a copy of the original vinyl) can be given dates that differ from what we know to be the original release date. Just a thought...

I f***ing love this song! I think I'll go and the Bourne Identity tonight!
cool
...i've always been suprised that the low-fidelity bedroom production style moby uses has succeeded as well as it has, and that given his success he hasn't bothered to elevate his game, since the financing's clearly there to do so...

Will we see another Bourne film? The Bourne Sequel? The Bourne Ultimate Ultimatum? The Bourne No Kidding I Really Mean It This Time? The Bourne Contractual Obligation?

Still, good song and I did enjoy those films. Thanks for playing this.
 

The Bourne Ante-penultimate Ultimatum?

The bike that is. The tune can speed into the trash, or the nearest gully. :) 
I liked the movies, but the vocals on this song are totally lame.
When Moby comes on, the headphones go on, and the volume goes up.

LOL! Good one. Laughing
This is the signature theme for the superb Jason Bourne series.  Over time, it has grown on me.  OK, it may not be among the all-time great tunes, but does it deserve all this pile-on slashing by you fly-by snipers?  Not even close!

Wikipedia says "
Although not a hit when it was released, 'Extreme Ways' has gone on to become one of Moby's most downloaded songs."  Apparently there is a fan base out there who are not commenting on RP...
Like some others here, I have liked some other moby work, but I am very un-impressed by this...sounds like mega-pop movie soundtrack stuff...maybe it even is that...but whatever, it gets my first-ever sucko-barfo rating

Is that a bollywood riff he's using?
Ummmmm, the release date should read:  2002

thanks!
Moby whines.  So sad, little Moby.

Bourne.  What can I say?  {#Biggrin}


I dig this song... Moby always surprises me... there is more to the song than I expect...  this is cool...


Lyrically shit
sounds like he's pilfering something from Achtung Baby
I usually really like Moby, so was disappointed to see his name on this track.  Just doesn't do anything for me.  {#Neutral}
Aha!  This is the song that I mistook this song for.

Just so darn tedious and flat..

...not quite as nice - too sketchy and demo-ish a production for public consumption...

Good call. I was just thinking about how I want to see those movies again now that I heard this. Well, maybe not the 2nd, but the others were fantastic!

Not so!  "Identity" was excellent, "Supremacy" defied the Law of Sequels by being even better, and "Ultimatum" was good, but a relative disappointment.

As for this song (which, after all, is what we are supposed to be commenting on, right?) I like it...  always have, always will...  no matter how vicious the critics of the RP Chattering Class want to get!

Thank God that just finshed.  I thought he was just going to moan and utter nonsensical drivel forever!  If I ever meet Moby, I will ask what kind of view he gets since his head is so firmly jammed in his rear-end.

Not a bad thing at all. It caught my attention when I saw the film and I had no idea it was Moby until the end of the credits. It's a great choice for the end credits, capturing the character's predicament.

That's sort of a low bar, isn't it? :think: At least as far as I'm concerned that is. :lol: Having said that, I will admit that I like the Bourne movies, and this song is good in that context.

I don't mind Moby sometimes, but this is certainly not one of his best.

I thought this song was by Matt Damon . . .
This song I like, but listen carefully... The chorus sounds like some other song out there... maybe from the 70s?? Help me remember... I knew it!!! The chorus sounds just like "Sorry I am a lady", by Baccara... a female duet from the 70s...
They use this on some PBS promo too.

What the hell is this? ??
Moby's main contribution to the music biz was his understanding early on that licensing your music to advertisers is actually more profitable than having a hit record; in fact, it was the licensing of tunes from Play that helped propel the album to multi-platimun status. Smart guy.
Never heard this before but it's strangely compelling.

I was going to say this must have been one of the ones that slipped through from the LRC, then I saw it was Moby... :redface: so its ok.

A few years, I already thought this deeply sucks... AND I STILL DO!!! THIS SUPER-SUCKS!!! Ciao, Moby... next artist, real one!!!
This guy's all about being mediocre at everything he does.
This has the exact same beat as "Natural Blues"...but the old bluesman's singing > Moby's singing.
Moby's music is just so formulaic... One measure of the melody, next measure move to the next chord, next measure bring in the hi-hat, one more instrumental measure, then bring in the sample or the lyrics. Always the same.
Moby should not sing. Ever. This album was an unmitigated disaster. He let his ego take him down.
Wow does Moby suck. I had forgotten just how badly.
Moby should not sing - IMHO
Not that great of a Moby song.

Straight up!
Starts out promising some Charlatans-style riffs on the keys...but then sadly disappoints...and goes on disappointing...sorry to be (rarely! I hope) negative, but this only reminds me how it should be better...
alright...time to run out to the car and unload the boys gifts! this endless loop of mumbo jumbo should go on for a while i'm guessing........
Am I the only man on Earth thinking this is crap? Moby's stuff is always the same, quite shamefull, drums are always ridiculous, and I prefer not to write about the "melodies"... that's is what I do think. Moby has his audience and it's huge... but he sucks!

The Bourne Identity will go down as one of my Favorite Movies! It is so action packed from the begining to the end. Matt Damon plays this role so well! The book (and all works by Robert Ludlum) are so fast, so full of terror, action, suspense, intrigue . . . and the movie fits this bill to a T. This song really ties the book and movie together. Simply Awesome. :bounce:
