Never took a punch in the ribcage sonny?
Never met a soul who had no shrine
Keep this all in your mind and get inside my window
What do we become trying to kill each other?
You're faking it son gonna get you tonight
I suck another breath to the hearts of the Revolution
'Cos it still ain't right

Where did all the love go?
I don't know, I don't know (I bet you can't see it)
Where did all the love go?
I don't know, I don't know, (I bet you can't see it)

Can't see the signs of a real change a comming
Take another sip from this hobo's wine
Get yourself a million miles from this concrete jungle
This is a time full of fear full of anger
A hero's exchange for a telephone line
Whatever happened to the youth of this generation?
'Cos it still ain't right

Where did all the love go?
I don't know, I don't know (I bet you can't see it)
Where did all the love go?
Now I don't know why, oh why

The rivers on the pavement are flowing now with blood
The children of the future are drowning in the flood

Where did all the love go?
Now I don't know why, I don't know why

In this social chaos there's violence in the air
Gotta keep your wits about you be careful not to stare
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Where did all the love go?
I don't know, I don't know (I bet you can't see it)
Where did all the love go?
Now I don't know why, oh why (I bet you can't see it)

Love this one. They're one of my favorite bands, and I really hate that Tom had such colossally bad judgment that resulted him getting booted from the band. 
timely

I don't hear much Julian Cope in this song, but I would like to hear just about any of his music on RP.
yes, am digging this!  Thanx again for another "new to me" song dear Bill!!!{#Roflol}...love it! 123K
wHat a Ride....
I can't bear this band, they seem to nick all their tunes from others - I can even hear Showaddywaddy's  "Hey Mr. Christmas"  in this one.  
Simply bad
I dig their groovy sound.. {#Dancingbanana}
Cover art's cool....
Me likey like, very much so!
{#Bananajumprope}
Holy Sweet Jesus, Bill, you're on a roll tonight.

Hmmmnn....  does that also mean you dislike music from Spandau Ballet, Massive Attack, Iron Maiden and Catherine Wheel? 



 
Well, yes.  With a partial exception for a few Massive Attack offerings.  

(And, really, Iron Maiden...? Thankfully scarce here.)

Y'know, Stingy, you need to get out more. There is a richness of life waiting for you. Go on. Try it.
great song after you break-up with your girlfriend, or boyfriend.
Agree!

Disliking music by Spandau Ballet should be the law of the land. Any land.
i really thought i liked this the first few times i heard it but, like a piece of Bubblicious, it lost it's flavor quickly. 7->6
For some reason, I now want to hear Real Wild Child by the Igster.
Channeling Cracker.....come in Cracker....

Lennon influenced so many....
Trippy Beatles-esque sound, and the message is heartfelt. Love it.

Thanks, fred - yep, that'd be it.  I have GOT to get this onto my MP3 player. I'd dance like no one was watching (except I'd be wearing clothes.) I have no idea whether I'd dance differently if I was nekkid, but we really don't wanna test that theory.  

 


Haha! Now where's your sense of adventure? ;)
saw these bros at a fashion week event DAMNED GOOD ROCK AND ROLL!

Also creeping up the scale for me, now at an 8, and growing on me.

You mean like this? {#Dancingbanana_2}
Creeping up the scale for me.  Initially I didn't care for it, but something about it makes it hard to hate.  Maybe it's the infectious beat, the harmony, or the slightly unusual chorus.  It feels constructed, but not overly so to the point where it sounds formulaic.  There's a measure of "this sound would be cool here" yet an element of undisciplined chaos that keeps the song from being too predictable.

Guh...  I don't want to like it, but I can't help myself.

And I'll probably still feel the same about this song when I'm sober. {#Roflol}
 

I think your last comment sums it up..... {#Cheers}
love this band. if you are unfamiliar with them please look into them. their debut self titled album is fantastic, very electronic mixed with rock and their latest "West Ryder..." has been their biggest success and includes many amazing songs.

Parts of their sound, especially the vocals, reminds me of some of Eno's work.  Anyone hearing that?
I just hate being out of cheese and crackers.
This is good.  I also heard the song "Vlad the Impaler' by this group on our local student station.  Great song also. 
Love this song, love this video, love this album!!
Nice!

DEFINITELY!

T-REX and other 60's bands as well!

I saw them live in Cologne (so-so!).
The band-DJ - before the concert - played
nothing but...
old Who, Small Faces, T-Rex (!!), early Floyd
(the good Floyd, in other words)
Move and simelar stuff!

I must admit - hearing those old songs,
super-loud and in top-clear sound
was a revalation!

It was actually better than the concert!

They brought an extra guitar-player,
because "their man" was unable to do it alone!
Bizarre!

I was one of those who has "promoted" their CD
in this blog, but...
NO, sorry, the band promised more than they can deliver!

Frankly, meanwhile I wonder why they are still on rotation here,
while guys like Mellencamp, Graham Parker and even
Sting are "seldom seen kids"!

Not fair - seen from a musical standpoint!
KASABIAN is an "unfinished" band!
With a handful of rather good 60's-songs,
a good singer,
but not much else!

...ask BUSH!
this song really sucks
this song never fails to perk me up!  {#Bounce}

I feel the same way when the song starts up and then it grows on me very quickly....I think it's the retro 60's sound that does it!

Is that a mellotron I'm hearing in the chorus?
I love those things.

Anybody hear T Rex in this ?
"you can't tell me your feet ain't movin!"

ah-hahahaaaaaaaaaa!!! my '8' bumped it to 6.7!

love this tune. glad this one is an RP staple.

Stop playing such good stuff!  I'm trying to study dammit.

I'm going to have to turn on regular radio so I can hear crap that I don't want to listen to just to get stuff done.

Luuuurv it! Funny, it's got an early 70's Brit pop feel. I keep hearing the Glitter Band singing 'leader of the gang'. How's the rest of this album?

Yea, this is pretty cool.
This song is right on.  I wonder what the rest of the CD is like?
Loving this one - catchy little chord change reels me in

One of the better British bands out there now. Always liked them. I hope Keane, Coldplay and Razorlight are tuning in. This is good ol' rock'n'roll not the bland stuff they put out.

Greetings from London.

Waking up all pissed off at the world, come to sit down and lo there's Fearless to calm me down. What's on next but some hoppy, fruity Kasabian — a fine breakfast beer to go with the oatmeal.

Stingray - Why do you always shout in your postings??
I am a new convert to this band - and this is my fave track.  Nice and lyrical with a bit of Eastern influence.
Got the disc—very, very good. Owes a lot to Damon Albarn and Blur.

for the pleasure -
Coldplay meets T Rex.

It's growing on me from quite likeable to most excellent! Did somebody see them on a performance?

Oh and yes, I love the brittish accent in this song usually not that perceptible for foreign ears.

Maybe, but the drumming is pure 80's.

Whew!! What a relief. For a minute there, I thought this was Dan Hicks and His Spinal Tap. {#Propeller}

Sometimes just a straight ahead rock song is all ya need :)
I got this album a couple of weeks ago and I have yet to take it out of my CD player since putting it in to listen to the first time.

But pretty much "Cold playish" - don't you think (artwork)?

Song 8 - 9!


 
No way...... this kills Coldplay.
Ok, the pics not great art, but they look sinister, and the song's not.
That chorus is awesome.
Oh I get it now......The picture's Coldplayish......Got it.
Yes it is.

MY GAWD.   Where do you people find these old hoary photo's?

This either looks like the crew from the great classic, "Flesh Gordon" or a bunch of Frat Rats lined up for a sex-change operation during Hell Week.

Whoever posted this thanks for the laugh as it lightened up a dreary day at the office.

How did they grab Ian Hunter's voice and put it on that track ?

But pretty much "recent Cold playish" artwork - don't you think?

Song 8 - 9!

KASABIAN-STUDIO = 8
KASABIAN-LIVE       = 5 (two !!!!! additional non-band member musicians, as support)


Got back on at 1:15pm EST. Had a nice lunch at Applebee's in celebration of Vet's day. Since I put my headphones back on I have been blasted by nothing but good music. Every single song for an hour has been at near max volume.

This is the best day this week!

Please keep it rolling!
Never took a punch in the ribcage sonny
Never met a soul who had no shrine
Keep this all in your mind
And get it inside my window

What do we become trying to kill each other?
You're faking it son gonna get you tonight
