Well we can't change the world
We sure can change the way we live
We can't only take
Also got to learn to give

People do wrong cause they don't understand
There's a book of truths
And a book of lies
Think with your heart
Read between the lines

Things aren't always how they seem
We've got to make the best of it
Eye for an eye
Tooth for a tooth
Sometimes we're blind
We can still see the truth

Well we can't change the world
We sure can change the way we live
We can't only take
Also got to learn to give

Sometimes you're lost
Sometimes you're blind
Think with your heart
Read between the lines

What's the name of that sparkly instrument? I hear that effect in several songs but I don't know what instrument it is.

Wow!  An astute observation.  Now I hear it.
I'm pretty sure that there's a couple of samples from "The the" in there. I'll have to dig to see which ones.
This has REALLY grown on me....solid 8.

Absolutely. Had the volume down and thought that's what it was

There is something rather naughty about the way the singer Bajka sings - but without being overly sexual - a sort of naughty Sade.

Me like! 
Punchin' it tonight. Stamp!

Bonobo is excellent! 9, solid.

Bajka

This hip, trippy music has a lot going for it —
including the intriguing, talented, exotic Bajka ~ DIG!

if only this could be the way it always "is" (be in the moment middy, beee the moment..)
First time i hear this. I was hooked from the second it sounded. Funny how a song can do that to you, now and then.
Great groove - quite nice!
Reminds me a bit of the band Ruby from their 1995 album Salt Peter
woah, a super nice rhythmic segue between two sexy songs ..Teardrop to this!!

Hidden answer (d): carefully-curated playlist that Bill makes, then uses multiple times.
I am sure it's me....but this song has very little life to it..and the instrumental (flute I'm guessing) has a root canal effect on me....  ok - More wine and I'm sure it will get better ;)   
Sounds like a Heineken advert

OK, now I've mistakenly heard the lyric as "But we sure can change the wee wee" — and I can no longer unhear it.
Getting to think these folks are simply fantastic.

Yes they are!
Bomp. Amazing how different music taste can be. Doesn't it destroy your CD player? {#Wink}
Since Bonobo monkeys do it face to face, the last 2 comments are apropos.

Sounds tawdry.
This beat has grabbed my butt and won't let go. Love it!
I'm sooo hungry....I just looked at this CD Art and thought of a donut...I don't even eat donuts.

It's still a great flute - but you're right. Ian Anderson is the flute-master. Not sure where I was when I posted the above - probably in another realm (note to self: NEVER go there again!

I keep hearing Bajka in different places, and she's really growing on me.

I love Bajka, and I dont know why really... She has a nice enough voice, but nothing really special.  It's what she does with it.
 
I guess that's enough.

Overdoing it spoils it most of the time.

Nice groove!!!{#Dancingbanana}
Play it again . . . and again!

It's thought that this helps diffuse any group aggressions. Unlike their hostile, war-like chimpanzee cousins, bonobos are rather calm and like to chill.

is it me or does this sound like Moloko?
 

Yes, but I think the singer here is this Bajka person, and the Moloko singer is R Murphy. Both great, in my opinion.
Sounds like the band nerds finally get the spotlight :D
this music = GR8 ,luvin the lyrix 2,WORD UP!

{#Cool}  Great song on this beautiful Friday afternoon!
Not sure if I'm digging the flute, but there's a definite groove to everything else.
I bought this album from listening to this track here (through the RP link obviously!) and I can recommend it as a real gem.

Fresh, interesting and superb production. -You like this track? Then buy the rest. . . trust me, I'm a doctor.


Bonobo's are monkeys that like to....um "entertain themselves" rather a lot.
These people a unique approach. Think with your heart. Read between the lines.

"If two bonobos have a fight, they may make up with a sexual reconciliation, which is typical for their species. So there's a lot of sexual activity that goes on that has more social meaning than reproductive meaning." Their sexuality also mirrors humans in a couple of other ways, too. https://www.geocities.com/RainForest/Vines/4451/BonobosLikeHumans.html

According to Wikipedia: Bonobo (IPA: /bəˈnoʊboʊ/, Pan paniscus), until recently usually called the Pygmy Chimpanzee (and less often the Dwarf or Gracile Chimpanzee),<3> is one of the two species making up the chimpanzee genus, Pan. Oh wait, did everyone else already know that? Hey, pretty darned good music for a chimpanzee! :-)
Me thinks this album will be mine in the near future ... very cool sound Bajka is a pretty sweet singer
Seems to be a number of great tracks on this album /me senses an upcoming purchase

I like this monkey grinder.
The bottom end on this song is outstanding. . . I am going to have to add this to my extraordinarily long "required cd" list.
jam! this song makes ya move...any way you want too!
I like the groove

Shake your monkey booty!!
Nope. Next.
In reference to the Album art...In the immortal words of Dr. Spock; "Fascinating"
Actually cool song, but who doesn't love the Evil Monkey...

Also much like humans, Bonobos are one of the few other critters that take part in "relations" for purposes other than reproduction. Their sex is considered among the scientific community about on par with our handshake or hug. Dolphins also have demonstrated sexual behavior which seems to indicate they do it for please (another sign that dolphins are extremely intelligent); Hyenas are the other I know of, but a effing hate Hyenas. Just to gross out a few people, Hyenas were thought to have both male and female sex organs. Only fairly recently was it discovered that, get this, both male and females have protruding sexual organs (yes thats right both have what would appear to be penises) one is connected to ovaries and males clearly have testes.
