I was told about a second chance
Now I know it's not a rule in a game called romance
I was fooling around

We lie and we cheat, desire indeed
I knew where this would lead us to when I was fooling around
I was fooling around

No more
No more sweet music
Just straight
Tell me straight

(If you you gotta do what you gotta do)

No more
No more sweet music
Just straight
Tell me straight

We know there is no happy end
But still I'm tempted every time we're fooling around
We are fooling around

Now know there is no second chance
In this last game of romance, too much fooling around
Too much fooling around

No more
No more sweet music
Just straight
Tell me straight

(If you you gotta do what you gotta do)

No more
No more sweet music
Just straight
Tell me straight

(If you you gotta do what you gotta do)

Know there is no second chance
Not in this game called romance
There won't be a happy end
Know that there wasn't and won't be a chance

No more
No more sweet music
Just straight
Tell me straight

(If you you gotta do what you gotta do)

No more
No more sweet music
Just straight
Tell me straight

Henrymancini 

This IS a mix of Fantasy Island and James Bond theme music.
We like it.

Best Coen Brothers movie by far. 

When I recommended "The Big Lebowski" to my rather innocent parents, it'd been a while since I'd watched it. I'd forgotten a lot of the crazine
ss and cursing, including the scene in which Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) smashed the crap out of car with a tire iron while bellowing over and over "This is what happens when you FUCK a stranger in the ass!"

I realized my oversight while watching the movie on the tiny screen attached to a gym treadmill. I started muttering "Oh shit" each time Walter bellowed his lesson, which earned me a few odd looks from my sweaty neighbors... 

My parents actually liked the movie—my dad still giggles when hears the word "fuck", believe it or not. This still cracks him up:

The Stranger: There's just one thing, Dude. 
The Dude: And what's that? 
The Stranger: Do you have to use so many cuss words? 
The Dude: What the fuck you talking about? 
The Stranger: Okay, Dude. Have it your way.  

Nice, nice, double nice!  (Where's my white naugahyde chaise?)

Yes! This reminds me either of A) James Bond music (classic Connery era) or B) Captain Kirk lovin music. Hehehe!

Cool song tho, she has such a sweet clear voice. 
the opening sounds like that old-school song, "Unforgettable".... go figure, this song is def forgettable.

I bought this CD a couple years ago. I think it's an import. Anyway, it has two disks. Same songs on each disk. One is dance (which, to tell you the truth I've never gotten all the way through) and this nice easy listening disk. Kind of a strange idea but to each there own.

This reminds me of Snowden by Doves.

There is (as mentioned later in this thread) a music only version of this song, which is much better IMO.

The singer adds nothing to the original tune... except an annoying whiny voice which follows the leading melody almost exactly, and as a result; gets in the way of a great tune.

So, please make it stop! {#Wall}




This tune always has a sort of early to mid 60s moive soundtrack sound to me..

Funny, I've seen that film twice and completely forgot that this number appeared in it. At the risk of repeating myself, Hooverphonic are the best thing to come out of Belgium after the beer, and before the chocolate, and I'm forever grateful to RP for introducing me to them. Sadly, their lead singer will be leaving the band soon, and IMO she really make their sound and will be very hard to replace.

sounds quite nice for a resampled sample. {#Music}

I'm pretty sure that the actual sample in this song is from a song called Ocean Beach by the Black Mighty Orchestra, which in turn sampled the original Henry Mancini orchestration. 

I have two versions of Ocean Beach on my iPod - an upbeat version from a CD called "Departure Lounge" and the slower version used on this track called the "Cybophonia Cinematic Remix" from New World Paris, vol 1.  Both are great tracks if you like electronica.

7 => 6 => 5 and dropping fast. Starting to grate me on repeated listens. Definitely not a fan of the overly loud muzak background.
Ahh..Well Frank first I mis-typed - the film is Sexy BEAST. Septic is cockney rhyming slang for an American - septic tank = you can guess the rest. Of course your housing has probably not had to use such primitive sewage disposal methods for a long while, so you may not know what one is.
But we're only kidding you, of course!

Interesting transition, there, from the Liverpool F.C. fans at the end Pink Floyd's "Fearless" to this one.

Sometimes I'm glad to live in Europe. Been to three of their concerts, all good. Best album (and concert) of theirs is 'Sit Down and Listen To Hooverphonic' however. Go find it somewhere if you like this.
THis is the best music for my being... Count in the 54 songs before this one, and i'll be awake for some more...
wow I actually thought this was Henry Mancini's Lujon (heard it first on the Big Lebowski soundtrack) and gave it an 8. Too bad it was just a ripoff to start the song (which makes it a 2).
lush
I have a sudden urge to experience Shirley Bassey in all her glory.

7 -> 8 The violin swell with her vocal on top is captivating!

any rock climbers here? the orchestral sample they use in this is also used in 'absolute limit' on the end of the big up soundtrack, if i remember correctly. and the overall treatment there was almost identical, although her vocal style is a little better here. normally i love finding shared samples or the original tracks, but in both these cases i don't actually like the usage much. hm. not a bad song, no real complaints. -PL-
Bareboating the Caribbean. Perfect theme song.

Yep, it starts off like one of my Dad's "beautiful music" radio stations. Yech. Also, sounds like something that would be on Star Trek (the original TV series). Weird.....
