We starve-look
At one another
Short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Somewhere
Inside something there is a rush of
Greatness
Who knows what stands in front of
Our lives
I fashion my future on films in space
Silence
Tells me secretly
Everything
Everything

(Seal with a righteous kiss)
That's me, that's me, that's me
(The rest is silence
The rest is silence
The rest is silence)

Singing our space songs on a spider web sitar
Life is around you and in you
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie

Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sun shine in...

Le putain de carnage !
I feel like I have just been scolded to let the sunshine in.  
Awesome piece of music!!!   (hey  kcar  there were a few dangerous stink-pots back then, like George Wallace, Barry Goldwater and young tRump's Master Roy Cohen eccchh  pure crap)
Great song, but why not just play the original version (i.e., from the Broadway soundtrack album)? It's much better.

I'm not rating it, because it's not so awful that I'd switch from RP to anything else, but I can't give it anything above a 4 at this point. Maybe one of these days, when the sun's shining, I'm stoned as a goat on good gin and all the dishes are done, I might feel differently! {#Mrgreen}
 

One of my favorite people on RP, regardless of current residence on any given plane of existence.

First time I've heard Julie Driscoll sing. Yes, a powerful voice but better than one would heard on plastered karaoke night, Dfitz. Definitely of a time and place but the little boy in me who barely remembers that era of hope and positivity gives this at least a 6.

Snicker all you want, but at least the 60s didn't vomit forth someone as awful as Trump.
Reel it in a bit, Julie. Ouch.
I rarely post negative things but Julie Driscoll's voice on this track is so annoying that I couldn't help myself. Really really don't want to hear this again!!!!
Its very fitting that "Streetnoise" is the name of this album because my ears kinda hurt.  She sounds reminiscent of a plastered karaoke Friday night where everyone says "quite a voice".

This comment by Cynaera gets a 10. I'll agree and give song a 4.
Sometimes RP just has clunkers and this is one of them. We won’t hold it against you bill
They did some great music but this isn't one of them.
Bill, can't we hear a better selection?
Just...not good.
Wow. Have not heard this for decades and could easily go that before hearing it again. Truly awful.
Ouch

I saw the musical Hair at the Fisher Theater in Detroit 20+ years ago. It was the uncensored version -- at one point the cast stands on the stage in the nude and performs a song. 

About a half hour after the performance, the entire cast came into the restaurant where my wife and I were having dinner. My wife pointed them out taking as they were sitting down at the next table. I guess I didn't recognize them with their clothes on...

Previous to today this song was last played on Nov 26, 2013. Long enough ago that this comment from Cynaera is still close to the top. I really miss her contributions to the RP community.

Nice to hear this.  This is from a great double album.  I had a hard time finding it back in the day in New Hampshire, but I'll have to dig it out and give it a play this weekend.

The overclocked voice is bad enough; but the real atrocity is the lyrics taken from your Applied Postmodernism professor's LSD-influenced lecture notes.
Please, make it stop I beg of you!

Some times it's best to leave well enough alone.  This is one of those times.

It is good to hear Jools again.

My exact thought, over and over until it was over.

Oooooh! Can we hear Up with People next?!! {#Rolleyes}
More emotion in Hair soundtrack / stage. BTW which came first ?

But I stand firm. In my ears it's a fascinating rendition of this beautiful song (Flesh Failures I mean), much better and sharper than the original version. And Julie's voice - I like it a lot, cool.
 
Don't take it personally.
We still like you.

I think it's ok. I like the Hair soundtrack, so doubtlessly there's some nostalgia value here. Nevertheless, not such a bad rendition.

Yikes, indeed.

I jumped in here to give this listen, but it doesn't get it. There are better tracks off this LP, to be certain, that show off Julie's work with the Trinity. This simply is not representative.

Yikes ... this is some awful singing. (ears bleeding)
Wow. It's been soo o o o o long.
Good song, was going to upload this next slot I get as it didn't show up as being there already...
