Oh honey don't you do that thing
Oh honey don't you do that thing to me, that thing to me
Oh don't you do that thing to me
Please don't do that thing you do to me

Oh honey don't you do sing to me
Oh honey to sing like that to me, like that to me
Oh don't you sing like that to me
Please don't sing all dark and low to me

Oh honey don't you smile at me
Oh honey don't you smile that way at me, that way at me
Oh don't you smile that way at me
Please don't smile that wayward smile at me

Oh honey don't you come for me
Oh honey don't you do come 'round here for me, 'round here for me
' Cause I just might fall for you
And that would be a damn fool thing to do

Saw her last night in "How to Steal a Million."  Classic 1960s farcical comedy.  Had me singing,:

Oh honey don't you do come 'round here for me, 'round here for me
'Cause I just might fall for you
that voice! majesty! {#Dancingbanana_2}
She sure made me stop and listen.
Defeaning drums. Tooo bad! 
Just for clarity's sake, what thing is it exactly?
I heard the Audreys 8 -10 years ago on trip to Sydney I bought the CD, Nice to see they have more recordings. Minor key seems to make them sad songs but we all need those once in a while.
First time hearing it & I'm liking it. 
Gets hotter every time.  Thanks Mr & Mrs G.
Sounds nice
Der Tramin

                                           Between last night and USA, all just likes you
                                                 Strictly so betwixt tra o fra me and us.

Um, Yogi is great but reports of his passing are greatly exaggerated (as of 7/5/2015).

mmmm, good stuff maynard!
This song sorts me right out.  Great stuff.  I'd love to be where they are.
"How come you never go there" plus "oh honey do that thing"

Just sayin', salacious minds do inquire ...

Plus the drum beat has a Spank da'Monkey beat ...

Yogi and Casey Stengel certainly came up with some jaw-droppers, gatorade. Yogi did some great TV ads with that schtick—AFLAC for one, I think.

On how crappy speakers can completely ruin a song

I hate to... ooops. Let me rephrase: I generally write comments about the songs I like rather than dislike.
I also believe that the first time one hears a song - the mood one's in - will set the way one hears it the following times...
The first time I heard this one, I really couldn't understand what they were trying to do. I was incredibly irritated/frustrated, and I didn't want to express such negative feelings... So no comment, because it would have been really dark.

Now I just heard "Oh honey" again, on BETTER speakers; first time was on the speaker of my smartphone (yeah I know... but I use it to listen to RP in bed when I'm too lazy to get up to turn on my sound system and my laptop is not at hand).
When I recognized the song, I immediately thought NO, not that THING again, feeling like conveying this through a comment. I thought I would look first what others had said about it, and at that time, the three, four, five last comments where all extremely enthusiastic, which made me think twice... which I was already doing, because the song was going on in the meantime, and I was a little surprised as I didn't feel that exasperation from the first hearing, and instead found myself liking what I heard.

That was because I suddenly was able to hear all that was missing before, meaning pretty much everything except for the voice; the first time I only heard the melody and the words... Not even the quatity of the voice quite carried over.
Now I've heard the WHOLE song. The great drums, the whole ambiance...

So this goes from no rating at all to 7 !

Don't listen to music through your phones, people, it's just murder! {#Cool}

 
I primarily use my cell phone for making phone calls (fancy that!) or occasionally texting.  On the rare occasions when I do listen to music on it, I use ear buds or headphones.  I agree though, there is a lot going on in this tune.

Those two songs don't sound very similar to me, but everyone hears different things.  Anyhow, this album came out about five years before that Feist tune was released.
Great drum work
Ditto
"How Come You Never Go There"  - Feist.
 
I like this song a lot.

This voice is Godess-like.....

Hmmm, lotsa nasty comments for this one.
Bucking the trend I guess: I like it.
Oh Audreys please don't sing this song to me
{#Naughty}
Just learned tonight that my so has finally taken some advice and tuned into Radio Paradise, says its a life saver, he is in Afghanistan for the second time. FOOD FOR THOUGHT.
Where is that animated thingy of the guy getting hit on the head with the sledge hammer? I REALLY need to post it for this song; which I find mind numbing!

There are very few songs that RP plays that make me STOP WORK, Log in and cause me to write a negative comment. Infact, this is the very first time.

Please stop the torture, argh! I cant take it~
Had to be there.
The concepts of "repetitive", "insipid", "extremely annoying" and "unnecessary quotes" kind of eludes you, no?  {#Beat}

Kind of like the old Boy George song, "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me."

After hearing it a bazillion times, the answer was a definite "Yes!"

 
So repetitive and so annoying. Wish Bill would stop playing this song so often....

There must be 20 or so, just different words and music.

Yeah, this song's pretty amazing from the acoustic pull-off intro to the loud and wide open "Levee Breaks"-style drumming!  There's a lot here to love on repeat listens!  7 —> 9  {#Drummer}

So true. Bill's set from tonight has been completely "True Blood" for me - and I'm loving it!


Chet Atkins - Jam Man
The Audreys - Oh Honey
Gomez - Bring Your Lovin' Back Here
Lucinda Williams - Can't Let Go
Chris Isaak - Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing

This drew me out of my cave. Like everything about this, including the cover art.
the song is awesome. a little sinister sounding
Lookin' for a segue into a Chris Isaak song. Nice!
There were 222 comments before I came along and had to make it 223.  {#Clap}

That's your opinion.  "Honey, won't you do that thing to me," sounds inspiring, in my opinion.

I like The Audreys. Thanks for playing, Bill.

You'd miss the occasional gem of a post, but on the whole posts are of the 'it sucks'/'it rocks' variety.

I rather like this effort, and I wouldn't mind having a go at the "thang" she doesn't want her honey to do to her :o)

 

Thank you, been screaming that one to those that attack negative comments as trolls, balderdash!

I don't see "happy clappy" as the only alternative to restraining oneself from declaring that a song sucks or the singer can't sing, or the other angry or derogatory declarations of negative opinions. What is the contribution of pissing in the champagne bowl? Good solid critiques? Simple declarations that you don't like this band or that song? Fine - that is good basic opinion sharing, and why this forum exists. Otherwise, why not let the musicians play without having to foul their efforts? They are a treasure, as is this station. I agree that there are many gems in these posts. Very informative, often emotive, heartfelt responses - just the thing that music can do to us.
