I Carry Fire For You - same riff - 
 
  Both songs feature numerous riffs from similar "Middle Eastern"-sounding scales - probably Phrygian dominant for one.
  Anyhow, this song predates "Carry Fire".

Pita alone is purposeless, it's like asking for more buns at McDonald's.
 Hummus, babaganoush, muhamara and tzatziki are useless without Pita. Pita, brushed with good olive oil and lightly grilled, can stand alone.
More hummus, beyotch!
Im down with it
Chick Peas

Most people believe that the attention span of a gnat is around 3.4 seconds. But what you don't know is that gnats don't fly around you to eat your sweat. They are listening in on your brain waves and conversations. Their attention span is about 34 hours.

It wasn't his belly that got shaved in the version I learned.

 
Yeah; I guess it could vary based on how drunk the sailor was and which ship he was on.  Of course they could always put him in the scuppers.
And ditto.

Hey I resemble that remark{#Drunk}
I think this would be great for belly dance warm ups in class.
...what shall we do with the drunken sailor?

Do you also not care for the album title? They kind of go hand-in-hand....

Gotta love it, and that hint of Good, Bad, and Ugly takes it even higher.

This is my Pandora channel. But I actually spend more time with RP!

 

Happy Feet music...

Let's dance-!!


Really getting into this, would love to hear something else by them.
This reminds me of a James Bond movie.

Sounds like a pretty groovy station.

Great Song
Put this back to a 9. . . so I could give it a 10 again!
Tricky business amnesiacs.
Never again
This song is featured prominently in Steven Soderbergh's recent film Side Effects.  It's a pretty good movie, and the song is played in a very interesting and key moment in the film.  It's also played in the closing credits.
  
It'll be my luck that there is a hell and that Satan can't stop playing this song.
Here we go again
Not again
Shakin' my ass.{#Yes}
This song by Thievery Corporation has a pretty prominent spot in the movie Side Effects https://soundtrack-movie.com/side-effects/

This song acurately captures how loopy I feel right now all jacked up on cold medicine.
Love TC and have this album but always skip this track as its WAY too repetetive.
NOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooo.......
5X in 30 days way too much 
Great belly dance material !{#Yes}
PSD time once again.
And someone's 'borrowed' my 'Best of TC' CD and never returned it...  hmmmm, will have to revisit the likely culprits! 
Even though this is a Generation Wuss band, I like them.  {#Flamed}
..sergio overtones, more electronically..

..pls invite me..
5 Times in one month. Enough already
 i love these guys, every cd they've made is worth listening to over and over and over. if you suffer from musical ADD (i'm sorry) and can't take this one any more, start over with mirror conspiracy. you won't regret, or my name isn't a question it's an answer ..and one i really don't care for
I know many don't care for this group or their music, but I love them
 
{#Dance}
I presumed you were playing this for the Gowri and Ganesha festival.  Don't know much about it, but my staff in India told me about it.
Very close to a sound track cut from an old DOS game "Silent Thunder"  if you can find this old game on CD it's worth it for the 12 music tracks ....
Love this song! discovered these musicians through RP
Love this song!  {#Good-vibes}
Again with this song?
This song is played way too much. Please put it away for a few years or 10.

And he has a Bluetooth in his ear and a 6 gig pin drive in his holster.
Imagine Bill doing turkish belly-dance in the studio {#Clap}
"The Good, the Bad, and the Funky"?
Nothing lower than a 1? PSD, here I come.
The more I hear this, the more I love it!

Another great reason to listen to RP. Listen to one track, like it, discover more about the artist.
good groove

It doesn't have to be biodegradable soap, does it?  'Cause if it does...

Cool!
I actually liked this song the first 100 or so times I heard it but not so much now as its wearing thin...

You mean like Pachelbel's Canon in D major? 

{#Naughty} I don't agree with your statement in this case.

I actually like this song (and the aforementioned Canon).

{#Clap} 

I really want to see this band live...   {#Angel}

Well said.  This is probably the single song I hear most on RP .  I could be wrong but.....

This group has many many pieces of music worth listening to. Maybe we might hear another one someday?
This piece needs a vacation.


Thumbs UP!!
how repetitive
re:  Lewis Cooper's photo a dozen entries below.

When Theivery Corp played at Atlanta's Fabulous Fox last year, they borrowed heavily from the local hip-hop crowd.  Had a couple of ladies dancing to this; had singers and other musicians joining them on and off throughout one of the ROCKINGEST concerts I've ever seen.  (If that's not a word, I hereby copyright it and retain all Artisitc and Intellectual Property rights.  RIAA?  You paying attention?)

The groove and repetition are by design - components of the genre.  You may as well complain about Fauvist paintings having bright colors.
