I can see a long way down
Heaven had the time to grow
Heaven had the time to grow

Now the fire's burned down low
Lying in the afterglow
Living in your afterglow

I can make it right for you
Even if you had to go
Even if you had to go

I can walk away from you
Only if you want me to
Tell me that you want me to

Even if you had to run
Even if you had to run

This would be great back-to-back with some Porcupine Tree/Steve Wilson/Blackfield... just sayin'
In this song they are PF/Genesis wannabes in a nice way.  
Because the world is round . . .

Q: Are we in a loop?
A; Sure seems like it.\
A: Sure seems like it.

Oddly reminds me of Bojack Horseman induced ennui.
I keep checking to see if this song is over so I can un-mute the station. 
Beautiful track from a superlative band.

Fantastic! Anyone could suggest more great-outro songs? By great outro I mean that it might just go on and on... My list so far:

Pink Floyd - A Saucerful of Secrets / Celestial Voices.
Pink Floyd - Echoes
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Sir Psycho Sexy (outro).
This one fits well, so: Supergrass - Run


 
you may want to listen to The Virgins Suicide by Air
I though it is Beatles

We were, we're at the end of that loop as of this moment. It's not normal for this station, but it's been happening a bit lately.

It seems there's one of these in the comments for every song in the RP playlist.
 
Its music! ;-)

Okay - I need more alcohol. Or maybe less manual dexterity and a keyboard that doesn't work (thank you, party who shall remain nameless, for unselfishly sending me the most awesome keyboard evah!  Oh, what the heck.  Thanks, monkeysdad. You rock.) {#Mrgreen}

 
brilliant...
That was really cool, subliminal and most excellent!
Supergrass...I heard that's real popular in Colorado,

And don't forget 10cc.

somewhere between the beatles and king crimson?
 


This was such a terrific band—inventiveness, humor, master craftsmanship, the whole magilla. One hopes that Gaz Coombes emerges from Supergrass like Albarn did from blur, with a sustained burst of creativity, novel exploration, music to confound and delight us all.
There's a Sesame Street song trying to break out of this.

One two three four five, six seven eight nine ten, eleven twelve!

Putain, qu'est-ce qu'on se fait chier !

Please do!

Yes.  I'm impressed too.  Please play more Supergrass.
"Seen the Light" is another great track on the album!

I didn't think, "Beatles", I thought maybe Pink Floyd, or Legendary Pink Dots.  
This is much better than most ELP.
Well, I love it. 

I think they borrow as much from T-Rex as the Beatles. 
SG at their most beatleish. Nice.
Nope, not having it.
A lukewarm, lazy ripoff.
Seriously, this is pissing me off.

Almost ambient.

Like it.

Funny, they sound like Jellyfish to me.  Of course, Jellyfish drew heavily on the Beatles too, but who doesn't?

It's like "how much more Floyd could this be?" and the answer is "none - none more Floyd".
...this surprises me...
if they made versions (covers) would be more still acceptable   -  4.


Sweet how they channel John's Number 9 Dream
Yeah
Beatles meets up with Pink Floyd and smokes.. supergrass!

"...their everything-old-is-new-again aesthetic can be heard in such albums as the Strokes' Is This It?). But, as this glorious record proves, there are few bands around these days who are as flat-out enjoyable as this trio. The world is a better place for having Supergrass in it." (Quote from allmusic.com review.)
nice, but not new...
Boy, did that sound a LOT like 10 cc in the opening . . . and for quite a while after.
The end sounds like something The Joker would have playing in the background at his lair...
Give Road to Rouen a listen to......it's a great album by Supergrass. BTW...they are excellent live.

That makes me... NUMBER 1000! What do I get, Bill? More Knopfler and SRV? YESSS!!!!
I thought this sounded a lot like early Pink Floyd (pre-Dark Side). Very very impressive. This group keeps surprising me, I am going to have to pick up some of their music.
:yawn: Seems forced and uninspired to me = 2. Neil
What's that on RP, an obscure John Lennon track? Nope, just Supergrass again. This time sounding like a former member of the Beatles, instead of a former member of Fleetwood Mac. Good music though.
Here comes the Sun King Here comes the Sun King Everybody's happy, everybody's laughing. or in my case... :yawn: :sleep:
All you need is love.
I'm sure I'm the 999th person to think: this intro..... so Beatles...
I dig!
not bad. would have to hear the entire album for a truer assesment. Agree, like Air.
Another good Supergrass song, having followed them from the very beginning. It does sound a little like 'Air' though, which is no bad thing at all!
Hrm, in reading everyone else's comments I guess my verdict is that I am just in a grouchy mood today, and that this song is not really obnoxious! I'll listen carefully to it next time, I promise. ;)
"Thank you, we're Supergrass!" And Then the Rock Out Continues

It's a really good one. I got to see them open up for Radiohead in support of this album--they are a great live band, too.
not bad at all, good effort
PLEASE, someone tell me...... are the other songs on this album like this one? I want it....
:sunny:

ME TOO! This made me stop what I was doing to see who it was, that seems to happen everytime there is anything by Supergrass on. LOVE IT
This is funny, the same thing happens to me ALWAYS with SG. Actually it just happend with their other song in rotation here 'Sad Girl'
I just bought Supergrass is 10. Now I must own them all. Supergrass = the awesomeness
