It's peace and love, although in electronic form. It will do. 
There is just something so peaceful and attractive feeling about this song.
Cornelius...!!!!  A need to see show. Even better live. Fantastic experience.

It's a veritable aural chill-out!  And today, BillG plays Sinead O'Connor's "'Til I Whisper You Something" as a follow-up instead of the Flaming Lips track. 
Nice
This song is pretty, all the little sounds and everything, so naturey.

Came here to say the same thing.  Turn around!

This RP never ceases to amaze me.... I was enjoying Cornelius and thinking how clever the recording was and thinking how is RP going to follow that and yet we then sssssssslllllllllllliiiiiiiiiiiide into Flaming Lips .. I am astonshied and amazed of the proffesionalism of this Programme. I was talking to my friend today and trying to explain how RP presents its music and this was a fine example of that. Thanks RP...




Nice, wish I were in a nice place with grapes and wine as well, But pleasant enough to have my sack lunch with at work.

Cornelius is cool, even though he collaborates with David Byrne. {#Lol}
Yeah this is awesome - I feel like I'm sitting on the back porch with friends after the sun has gone down, enjoying some breeze and cheese and wine.... ahhh.

Sounds like night time in Animal Crossing....  I like it!

Not my favorite Cornelius piece, but a nice one nonetheless.

One thing to be aware of, is that he plays all the instruments: bass, drums, guitar and keys on his albums (with the exception of the odd guest) in addition to the programming and all the vocals. You should hear his vocals! Multi-layered harmonies with crazy syncopation. His stuff is electronic prog music. Check out the albums Point and Sensuous.

A phenomenal talent.

The amazing video for the track "Fit Song" off of his Senuous album:

I know this is obviously not the same Cornelius, but every time I see that name, I think of Planet of the Apes.  No offense to this recording artist or Roddy McDowell intended.  Cool tune - excellent groove.
{#Whisper}   Oops; I've just been informed that this recording artist took his stage name from the character in the aforementioned film series.
Sounds to me like an Enya song produced by Dr. Dre... Mellow with a beat. Not bad though.
I like Cornelius, specially the album Fantasma.
You know, I think there are a lot of artists that use these electronic sounds because they can't invest the time to come up with anything better. They sound cheap - and they are. Any cheapo drum machine can produce them. BUT, every once in a while, an artist takes them and creates a work of art. Kinda of like Andy Warhol did with printed art. This is a gorgeous piece - and a good use of that drum sound. Very nice!
well Cornelius is japanese TheFriendlyCat. I've never heard a chilled cornelius track before, normally a bit mental! certainly second the call for more Cornelius on RP

Good Idea, I'll upload a couple of tracks. Lets see if they Fit the Bill. ;) Like Crinky said, they tend to leap about stylistically, so the rating curve may get double-humped.

One warning about Cornelius: His albums are very stylistically mixed. A placid instrumental can be followed by a loud punky song. So, I would listen to his albums at night but I wouldn't go to sleep listening to them.
A good follow-up... \"Summer\'s Cauldron\" by XTC. And \"Buggin\'\" by The Flaming Lips.

All thats needed for that photo, is for it to be in the evening and then it would fit the mood of the song.
I agree, but couldn't find one... :think:

Really neat stuff. Great follow up to Euphoria. Give me some ethereal acoustic guitar any day. Thanks for this one, Bill. = )
Where's Zira?
Where is my bug spray? I'm all itchy from the jungle sounds...
Can't hear the name without thinking of the Roddy McDowell's stirring performance in Planet of the Apes which leads to the video for an Abba song where the blond dude looks just like Cornelius from Planet of the Apes.
What a cool tune. I love the layering and syncopation between the percussion and guitar work. I've got to pick this up. Does most of their stuff sound like this?
Most excellent album too...groovy stuff (yes, groovy's a good adjective) :cheers:

surprised this one didn't segue into tito and tarantula's sweet cycle...the cricket noise intro would have been a perfect match!
Or perhaps Pink Floyd's "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict".
It's goofy, I wish I had the Bose speakers plugged in to get the whole experience.
