So you're kneeled down, squinting cowardly and half asleep
You've been firing, only barely clipping her little wing
I'm waiting, with a mirror in front of me
Complicated dance move
I'm waiting, with a mirror in front of me
Complicated dance move
She's my sister, and she floats like a bird in the canopy
I'm listening, so let's go, sight locked, grit your teeth
I'm waiting, here I am brilliant, aim at me
Complicated dance move
She's my sister, and she floats like a bird in the canopy
She floats like a bird in the canopy

I'm in it for the music, not the brats.
Now I will try to stop staring at the human train-wrecks, and just appreciate a great music site.

 
Whoa!  What did we ever do to you?

I thought this was Beck until just now. Glad I'm not alone.
I love roses that come without seeking.
This goes beautifully with "white bird (in a golden cage)"

Played twice in the last 30 days.
First time I've heard this one.  I like it. Job done. S funny that a few have challenges discerning their Bs and Ts.  Get yer ears cleaned.  Or improve your listening environment.  Or just listen ;-)
Experiment IV-level awfulness. Must have a half-life of 10,000 years. 

Kate did warn you...

Like the ambience of this song
 
There is no song on RP that I loathe as passionately as this one.  Good lord.
Love this...

You sure got that right!

I like the song, but I don't need to hear it in such heavy rotation. White Socks Flip Flops it ain't.

Thanks, Dave. I will never be able to take this song seriously. You provide a great service. You should can it! Lol!

Not bad, indeed!

LOL. Definitely fits the tune's over-sedated suckiness. 

Oh—is it over? Too, too bad.  
boring :-((

I still think he's singing "complicated disco."

{#Cheers} CLEVER !

bumped from 7 to 8 for the decent suspended cymbal rolls... {#Lol}
completely overplayed... 1

Oooooffff. . .all rejected. Feel like I got the wind punched out of me. STILL. I stand by my assessment of this being a great album.

Go buy it! It's a great album!

But in the meantime, I'll upload a couple more and see if they can survive the wrath of the LRC. Those people can be brutal.

Yep! Very good to have them on Radio Paradise. I have always wondered why great CD's like Night Of The Furies and Life Like never made the RP-playlist. Great music, lousy marketing!
 
I uploaded "Silence By the Lakeside" from Night of the Furies to the LRC where it fared pretty well but didn't make it to the main playlist. I think what we hear on RP has more to do with the whims of the Goldsmiths than with any kind of marketing.

You are going to need to upload it yourself if you want to hear it.  As of now, this is the only song from this album that RP has.

First, I'll say that the music programming is normally top notch on this station. Great variety, which I love. But in this case, I think we've heard this song PLENTY lately. Could we hear one of the other tracks on this CD for a change?

I like this!
Just got this album yesterday. I'm looking forward to giving it a listen.
This is such a lovely experience. 
I actually found the song quite beautiful..alluring..and soothing..helping me study without panic..   {#Roflol}
I usually don't mind a little quieter, laid back music.  But that one put me to sleep. 
AWWW YEAHHH! Hushed Vocals {#Cool}
Nice feel here. Does anyone else hear a faint resemblance to the old INXS song "To Look At You" (also in play on RP) {#Neutral}
"... complicated dance move..."

Interesting band name. An ode to Citizen Kane?
 
Almost certainly:

Photo still from end of Citizen Kane.

I think Bill and/or Becky must have just discovered this band as they've been playing a lot of them from various albums over the last few weeks. Which is fine by the Nottingham jury, which awards an easy 7 to this song.

Lovely, but their previous CD Life Like is their masterpiece in my opinion.
I just discovered now this band, I like this sound!{#Dancingbanana_2}
Discovering and loving it, no matter the lirics are not that good.

The background electronics remind me of Jansen/Barbieri(ex-Japan guys) of about 20 years ago...

Interesting...  minimalism music, but complex production get the most from it...  hmmmm...

 
She walks alone down a sleazy backstreet
Around a corner, up an alley to a dead end
There under a small blue light
She enters an unmarked doorway
A low heartbeat, a low pounding escapes into the night
This is a place she goes to fulfill a very basic need
Something people have been doing since the dawn of man
To communicate without talking
If she needs something
She makes a gesture with her hand
And mouths what she wants
She wants to make a connection
A certain kind of connection
No this is not about something from the black market
This is about no questions
This is about smoke and sweat and beats
This is about no message
It's good to have some Rosebuds on the playlist. I like everything about this song.

...intriguing vocal blend...
Very nice. I'll have to go get this one. {#Yes}
Wow, I really like this. And they're from my old hometown of Raleigh, NC? Cool.

Me too! Made me sit up and take notice and turn up the volume.

Flowing....nice....I like!
Evocative of open-air, dreamy landscapes like the one shown on the cover ... interesting ... {#Sunny}
