Moments of perfection
Idle in the sunshine
Over there in yonder
In another world

I'm not your kind
I'm not your girl
Dreams we had seemed bright
And passed the time

Cologne cerrone, cerrone Houdini
Cerrone Houdini
Cologne cerrone, cerrone Houdini
Cerrone Houdini

Sunlight in your eyes
Driving over stateside
Left the smoke behind us
Could we be together in another world?

I'm not your kind
I'm not your girl
See I'm in your car
But not your life

Cologne cerrone, cerrone Houdini
Cerrone Houdini
Cologne cerrone, cerrone Houdini
Cerrone Houdini

Sunlight in your eyes
Sunlight in our eyes
Like diamonds in your hair

Nice! She has a lovely voice. 
Sounds like it should be a Bond song. And that is good.
I turned my son-in-law onto Felt Mountain and he had the same reaction I did.  "I want more of this - I'm buying every Goldfrapp album."  Me, "well there isn't much more of that.  Their other albums are... different."  Except for a few tracks - like this one
Harry!Harry!
Suddenly I imagine Marlene Dietrich in a Hollywood movie or Madeline Kahn in Blazing Saddles. 
Shiver me timbers, that's a good song!

Cool groove in this tune.
Bit of a Serge Gainsbourg / Melody Nelson vibe with that bass and those strings. Sure it is not an accident. Love it!
Stunning.

That is one baroque song name, supported by a baroque album cover.
First casual listen and thought it was a new Kate Bush song.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Goldfrapp can do no wrong, it seems :)

Beware the pouty pirate with segmented eyes. Her voice will lull you in sure enough.

The cover of her latest CD, which I just bought, is much better.  I can't imagine you meant the song is the worst ever (OK, got that part), but the cover art is the best ever?
Something off the new CD was on last night and I jumped over to her website, and looked through the videos. I really like a few of her songs, but they have done a lot of crap, and made even worse videos for them. Makes you wonder what she could do with better collaboration.
the cover...she looks like an olsen twin.
I love this song.
Arrgh maties, A grand singin siren she be!

Complexity does not necessarily = beauty as simplicity does not deny greatness

You may be right; she must have been dressed like that to watch "the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells".

I rather like this (it's in my RP Favorites playlist) and don't find the lietmotif orchestral hits to be that annoying, although I can easily see how they could be! :-)

Just heard this one yesterday afternoon.  I still love it though.
I just love Alison. An extraordinary woman and musician

I'm giving it a solid "1"  I always regarded the terminology of the rating category "Sucko-Barfo" as in questionable taste but it certainly applies here, brothers.
 
Man I needed that today.  Thank you!{#Biggrin}
This song makes me want to run in mid air in slow motion.
Everybody in my street loves this song!

At least, I think they do, they keep banging on my door. They must want to join my party, I'll turn it up so they can dance in the street!

If it is...........it's a VERY old shot. Goldie is about 66 yrs old now.

I am sure, if I hear this song on a Goldfrapp record, it will not stand out this much as it does here in Bill's collection.
This like chemistry. It's not just the ingredients. It's also temperature and environment.
 
Amen to that!

I can't help it - I LOVE the album cover - that wash of sunlight, the look over-the-shoulder, those wide eyes... It's just pure art.  Don't get me started on the music. I resolve to buy a few Goldfrapp CDs, because the music is so compelling and has grown on me... {#Music}

The name is Bond, James Bond...
Well, you're wrong. This song is wonderful, I think. You may not like it, but that doesn't make it awful. Sorry. BTW, 8 from me.

Yes, it is a smooth groove, and the bass-line is quite cool.


Gosh, this song is awful. Rated 1. I hardly ever do that... {#Beat}

I do not like Goldfrapp at all and agree with your assessment of this song.

Thank you for playing Goldfrapp! So good! (Whenever I play her for others, they always ask, "Who is she?" Her Starbucks name is a little unfortunate, though.)

She's stunning in "Pilots" on YouTube . . .

Took time.


She's staring into my eyes while singing to me! Then I woke up! Really like the feel of this.
Beautiful voice. {#Sunny}
Not sure what I feel or think about this song...yet still listening. Want to hear more. Kate Bush hint near the end. Magical cover art.
I likey!

BTW, I just checked wikipedia, at 44 years old, she is no kid.
I really like this woman's range. She has this down to earth, almost raspy voice, but then she nails those extreme highs. Impressive.

7>8

Like candy!
Nice!!

Too much is just enough. The kind of theatrical pretentious puffery I really enjoy, because it's done for the sugary indulgence of it all.

Wow.  I was confident this was Jason Mraz - but no?  

Not bad. 
One of the very few songs on RP that actually make me switch to another station.

Silk smooth. Nice.
 
Tender, soft, with this combination of Cologne, Cerrone and Houdini it sounds very 1920s (sorry for Cerrone who is more like French disco of the 70s, later 80s and then 90s/2000s...)

Silk smooth. Nice.
Just perfect.

Love this and the rest of the album which is a great collection of James Bond-like movie music.

Bumping up to 8 - love her voice . . . quite the unique sound

 . . . see her hit those high bits - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQen6vViWf4


Every time I hear this lovely song It brings to mind 'One Summer Dream' by E.L.O.  Similar soundscapes {#Hearteyes}


Is this camp? Like it in a way (but which?).
Introduced to Goldfrapp by a colleague in my last job (thanks Antje!) and they really grow on me.

She sure knows how to sing, don't she. Great, great sound.

Morcheeba-esque!
Sounds strangely James Bond-y.

Jup, with healthy dose of 70:s kitch, a pinch of early 2000 brit, and a long mellow layering of ultramodern arrangement.
7 Lose the violins I'd give it an 8
I called them "Goldcrapp" from a previous song....and apologized.Songs like this well produced number can change my opinion.
in my view one of the weaker songs on the album with happiness, A&E and caravan girl being lots better
Nothing special ( for me ). Goldfrapp can do it much better...

This is way over my head I guess.  I find it depressing and meaningless.


Touch of the first album about this one - excellente !!
This song is so weird....like, 9 weird. Every time I hear it I like it more.
