While you were building your empires
I was still sleeping
I was still sleeping
While you were setting your woods afire
I was still dreaming
I was still dreaming

Now I will unsettle the ground beneath you
Send my waters ashore
Creep into your bed
Find you in every corner

While you argue it over
I am not waiting
I am not waiting
While you retreat to your comforts
I am not fading
I am not fading

I've done this many times before you
Old Shanghai, New Orleans
Amsterdam and Mumbai
Strange new creatures
To scavenge your pores
Oh I've done this many times before you
Ashen sky, lightning storms
Deltas to desert plains
Wartime on every border

I've done this many times before you
Watched the pattern take form
Children your time is done
If you say it's done together

Ego or not, it's a pretty good list. Pretty well lines up with my taste. Makes we want to hear the ones I don't know.
Teng clearly listened to Radiohead "Go to Sleep" and thought it was a good idea.

Vienna Teng's music always stops me in my tracks.  What an amazing artist!
Female voice among ambient angel sounds and then dark percussion. What?
8 —> 9 on this rainy morning.
Impeccable.

Stunning.

Gorgeous.

(Not you, this song) 
An astounding and beautiful segue from Erik Satie, preserving and amplifying the mood created by yer man's Gnossienne No. 1. Kudos, Bill.
This tune wouldn't be out of place on Game of Thrones!! I can imagine Cersei singing it.

Pssst don't tell Vienna Bill just put her on right after Ella Fitzgerald...

 

She once said that her label calls the group "jazz" for their German bookings (she found that amusing), so perhaps the segue is closer than you think.
What happend,  Bill?  This is not the normal good set!!!!

Everybody in my alien space craft loves this groovy song...  thank you for your words of wisdom, and I hope life is marvelous for you right this minute, AvoidingWork...
I'm a fan of the transition from Gnossiene No. 1 to this.
The music is interesting. Her phrasing, enunciation and voice are enthralling. I lean closer my Bose. 
Wonderful artist.  Very good song.

 

Or Ali Farka Toure.

Edit: Or after Satie, which segue I particularly liked. 7/22


Pssst don't tell Vienna Bill just put her on right after Ella Fitzgerald...
Certain string elements of this song remind me of the soaring grandeur of The Who's "Love Reign O'er Me". However, I'm NOT suggesting Vienna Teng and The Who are in any way alike :)

pretty much.
Hold on, Babalooie!  I thought F*ing songs were meant to be played while one F*s.  If so, then this is a fine example!  Does it follow that if someone does/does not like F*ing songs ...
 WhiteWater wrote:

That distribution defines a troll? Really? That probably resembles *my* distribution. I tend to only vote songs I like - meaning 7~9 and the very rare 10, AND the songs I really, really hate meaning a 1. Mediocre tunes don't inspire me to go to the computer to vote - or even to go to the computer to discover who the artist might be...

 
It's not the distribution of the ratings, in this case - it's the comment. Gleefully, remorselessly hateful - with profanity.  I'm sure my rating distribution is nothing to write home about, but at least I don't go through a particular artist's playlist and methodically post the same hateful, juvenile slam on every single song by that artist.  To me, that equals "troll."

...i swear i hear john phillips in the undertones...

Oh Bill, you had me at Erik Satie. Fantastic segue.

Here here!

I gave it a 1 too, but I have hundreds upon hundreds of 8-10 ratings as well, what excuse have you got for me? Could it be that some people dislike this band, don't you think that is a possiblity??{#Rolleyes}

 
It wasn't the rating. It was the TONE.  I"ve given my share of "1" ratings (most of which I don't post), and everyone is entitled to their opinions. Using abusive language to state an opinion is, in my opinion, TROLL.  sirdroseph, I have no excuse for you, but I love you anyway. {#Lol}

The difference is in how he expresses his dislike. He posted the same vulgar comment for all of her songs; that is spammer-like, boneheaded troll behavior. At least you try to vary your critical comments.

 

Thanks, peter_james_bond.  I hadn't verified t00lur's history.  And I rather love sirdroseph's comments.  Geez, I should stop posting. Too much stress.

love those dissonant undertones in the orchestration!
Love this woman's music!
8—>9
The structure and sound just works.

I never get tired of this song.  This is my tribute to it:

every forum has a troll.  Tag, you're it.  vienna teng, (you should
learn to spell her name right) has loads of talent.  Just because
a song is sad, it doesn't make it a "f'ing song."  Apparently
you wouldn't listen to her musical journey.  I'm sure she's
devastated because of your 1 rating.

 
Don't feed them - and this one's not even old enough to drink.


...this would not sound at all out of place dropped into the middle of claim...
Not always a fan of hers, but I just had a delicious Indian lunch, and this seems like the sonic equivalent of a good curry - rich and full, some contrast, more than the sum of its parts.
I wonder why t00lur even listens to RP, it's obviously far too classy.

Just a lot of sounds making me feel nada ! #2.
And I'v tried to like it.{#Yes} next time,I'll spend some time in LRC.

sad shit. again . 1 . again
Sounds a bit like Portishead in parts. In case that's not obvious, that's a Good Thing(tm). I don't think she's trying to sound like Portishead, my brain just has to compare it to a song I've heard before. Maybe if I hear this enough, I'll say Portishead sounds like Vienna Teng. :-)
 
To me, this is rather un-ordinary, and I love it.  It certainly fits in with the mood Bill has created, of layers of powerful female vocals with varying flavors.  Even Tori Amos's cover of a Nirvana song fits well in this set.  {#Meditate}{#Sunny}

I tend to agree. Personally, I find it very hard to rate anything a '1' - partly due to the fact that I couldn't do any of this stuff myself.

I'm not always in the mood for her stuff, but I am always impressed with her abilities and the overall musicianship of her music.
Wonderful artist who I discovered here on RP.  This is her best CD since Warm Strangers.
Lovely voice-a bit reminiscent of Allison Krauss
Mother nature... more powerful than we'll ever be.

Thank you for playing this Bill.  Vienna Teng plays such beautiful music, and after watching her live performances on YouTube I've been wanting to go to one of her shows for a long time now.  For some reason, hearing this song today reminded me of that.  So I looked up her tour dates, and what do you know?  She'll be in my area 2 weeks from today!!

The transitions are almost everytime perfect! Key and rhythm fits perfect. That's the difference with random computer playlists and playlists that are thought about.

Pairing this with Air's Alone in Kyoto was brilliant and raised my rating for this song.
{#Meditate}
Really fantastic
Saw her in concert at the Berklee Performance Center in Boston a month ago. She's truly fantastic live.
Cool stuff.  A little jarring when her vocal jumps to being mixed so close. But a lovely song, beautifully arranged & recorded.

Neat story. I read somewhere that VT is a classically trained concert pianist, and has been playing since the age of 5.

 
Right you are (from AMG): "A pianist since the age of five, Teng took piano lessons before moving on to improvisation." (What a terrible sentence, yes?) At any rate, the full magilla is here: https://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&opt1=1&uid=SEARCH&sql=Vienna|Teng

Yep. I'm likin' this.
What does this tune remind me of? What other tune that is.
Lovely noise!
Noise.
Saw her (w/Alex Wong) and met her Friday. Wow. Brilliant show.
I     LOVE      THIS     SONG.

heh heh - respect Tori's talent and if she'd slow the machinery of her mind down a minute, as peter_james_bond so aptly phrased it, she might unfold like this ... but maybe we like Tori tightly wound? anyway Vienna wins on the smooth touch

me too. this is beautiful. I thought she was duller than this.
love her music so much, but there are better songs on Inland Territory
Gorgeous.  Did someone use the word "majesty?" Yes, that is spot-on.

Nicely said.

Who IS this newbie? Easy on the bashing, pal (and the diction). Just tag along with the rest of us and enjoy the music.

Don't listen to him. He's OD'd on Teng and seeing orange.

 

There is an episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" in which Larry David crudely suggests the name of "Tang" to someone who is adopting a baby from China.  "It's even a drinK"  he says.
Ohhh I like this... her keyboard work is always so evocative and lovely.
Very nice.{#Yes}

Hey Bill,

Any chance the Vienna Teng - Live at Radio Paradise cut will get played again? Some of us joined long after that appearance so we missed it but we'd love to hear it. Was it taped? I often wondered if any artists dropped by RP for an interview or a promo, maybe Vienna is the only one.

Cheers,
PJB

Great comment.

Beautiful, tender and yet strong.  Sometimes the hardest part is waiting until songs like these are played again. {#Curtain}

Love the rhythmical syncopation of the lyrics.


I was really, really lucky and watched her show a few month ago in a tiny club  (https://www.objekt5.de/ ) in Halle/ Germany.
Quiet an experience.
