sometimes I walk around town looking at faces
wonderin why their bodies go to silly places.
Walkin past the carpet mills looking in and takin stills,
your ass it draws me in like a Bermuda highway.
Oh, don't carve me out! Don't let your silly dreams,
fall in between the crack of the bed and the wall.
Two times I fell asleep in a dirty basement
snoozing in cobwebs and the cement.
Sometimes I wonder why that meek guy got all the fame,
maybe im to blame for his short bitter fucked up life.

Great song, but I still can't get over the fact that BERMUDA HAS NO HIGHWAYS.  I guess I shouldn't sweat it, though; there isn't a "Stairway to Heaven," either.
 
Maybe he was thinking "Bermuda triangle" which would kind of make sense - but it didn't scan.
he is a fine singer but the music slightly mechanical  for my ears

Thanks for the lazy 'album title' hint. GREAT SONG!!!!!

Right?  I had to go 8 to 9 after reading the lyrics....didn't realize how poetic he was here....Long Live RP!!
 
Lizardking -- I love the soundscape of this song, but I can't connect to the lyrics at all? Is there something esoteric I'm missing?

I stop to watch the YouTube video, and the fact that is just him and his guitar at Red Rocks is effing amazing. In fact I think this may be the same audio.

7 --> 9

and I just figured out the album title

The worst voice in modern music.
doesn't he mean, "fall in the crack between the bed and the wall"?

Love the music. 

STOP MUMBLING!!!!

I couldn't know the lyrics unless I read them here. Jeez.
His howl at the end ... that's me as I listen to him swallow the words. 
 
Hauntingly beautiful. Stopped in my tracks.
Famous mortal sin.

Is there an alternative?  This is a cool version - nice to hear them without what often comes across as over-produced, studio sound.
Sublime.
Certainly no cheap plug-in nor top-end rack can match that reverb on the vocals. Play live or don't play.
{#Hearteyes} that's the reason I listen RP!
{#Group-hug} we do like the last five
Really nice song, but there are no highways in Bermuda.

My sentiments almost exactly, rdo.

 
Yep, this is one of those times when I am for shure against the big market USA which forces artists to sing in English.   I predict RP will change that.   As I have stated here a few times, I am one who champions poetry, but the elements of music most important to me are not lyrical.

I seldom pay any attention to lyrics.  When I do it has little impact on my rating.  I would like to hear more performers singing in their native language.

Me too. Bumped it from 8 to 9 with this listen.

Could use a little more reverb.

Saw them with Wilco and Dylan in Tampa. Should have left Dylan at home and given MMJ and Wilco 30 minutes more.

I took my wife and kids to the Americanarama show at Shoreline in August.  I would have stayed till the bitter end, but everyone was ready to head out after 3 or 4 Dylan songs, so you made it longer that we did;)  Seeing Bob Weir sing with Wilco and MMJ definitely made it worth the effort!

Great song BTW...

So, if I were to download a cd by MMJ which one shud it be?

 
They are all pretty good but I love Okonokos (2006), it's a live double album.

Hard to say.  Can't go wrong with their latest.

Thanks for playing.

Music has that ability to take one somewhere instantly.

In this case back to winter of 2008 long languid nights of burning candles drinking wine and much more{#Kiss}



 
Hard to focus on work with that visual in my mind!

Beautiful....just beautiful :O)x
Must have had my head in the sand.  I don't remember hearing this.  Wow.  That voice is so cool.

should...just saying....
Loved this song - had not heard it before.  MMJ is one of the best live acts in music today.  Period. Of course that's my opinion and you all are welcome to check them out yourself. . .

Sorry, but I don't see the appeal of MMJ. Their music is weak at best.  Now the Monsters of Folk is another story. Those guys rock.
Beautiful. Enough said.

Truly, I had to check who was singing.

Quite a bit of beauty in this......7..


Thumbs Up!
Beautiful song.

And, even though people drive like maniacs here...there are no highways :-)

A good tune.

My Morning Jacket seems to have a great deal of intense joy in their music - even when the song is sad.  I think that's one of the things I like best about them.

Fu**ing beautiful!

I wonder what they'd sound like without all the echo?

Seems to be their trademark gimmick.
 Bill, nice song but if you go on like this I'm gonna cut my veins this morning! Please play something cheerful for the ones out there now in need like me! thanks
I love this, beautiful.

Thinking the same..WoW.. 8.

I seem to be very into the music today - perhaps because I wrenched my back and have been off work for a couple of days, so with not much to obligate me, I'm listening with both ears. {#Roflol} Lots of good stuff being played, and I'm actually rating songs!  Funny, though - I have a bunch of 7-10 ratings, but the songs I don't particularly care for, I'm not bothering to rate.

This one's getting a pretty high rating - I LOVE My Morning Jacket.  (And I love the group, too.) {#Sunny}
genius
love this

Thanks so much for playing this particular song at this particular moment - it always sounds like a ghost singing. Came at just the right moment for me...
Now that is a gorgeous bit of music.
Fluffybum are you 12 years old?? Grow up, your language is offensive. You can make a critical comment without being profane!

I know you've only been a member for a week, but could you talk/write without referring to your dick. It's offensive and quite honestly, there are plenty of other sites where you can express yourself like this.

Plus, this is Radio Paradise. It's one thing and then another, and then another, and if you don't like it, there are plenty of other places to go and behave poorly.

Like American politics (but that is going to change a little next week), so get in there while your still not as recognizable.{#Naughty}

Also, I use emusic.com, and they had it for download as well. Nice, DRM-free mp3s...

A 6...only cause they are from Kentucky..if they were from anywhere else..a 3

Truly excellent.

Hey MMJ, if you want to be good, maybe you should make an effort to make even one of your lyrics understandable.

{#Puke}

8/10 to start

Me, too, zipper. That's RP, doing it again. Breathing new musical air into my lungs. Must check this out. :clap:
Thought I was hearing some new material from Neil Young there. Good stuff !
More good stuff - you keep pulling them out :curtain:
Stellar performance! I'm buying the CD tonight!
After Plant & Krauss, this is like a breath of fresh air. Excellent.
:hearteyes: I've never heard this.
Very nice. I'd like to hear more from this album now!! :clap:
This is beautiful. Thank you RP. :clap:
:boohoo: :sleep:
finally, a My Morning Jacket song that doesn't bug the crap out of me.
