The Flaming Lips have never ceased to amaze me, since the first time that I heard The Soft Bulletin. They have a certain atmosphere about their music that just grabs your attention, and just will not ever let it go. Even if you want to get away from it, you always come back. Well, at least for me, that’s what the Lips’ music does. This particular song is a more obscure one, but one of the most gripping at the same time. The first time I heard this song, was when I was watching their documentary The Fearless Freaks, which I HIGHLY recommend. They played a piece of the song about halfway through the film, and then the whole thing at the end, when they sadly announce that sometime before it was released that Wayne’s mom, had also passed away. This song just gives me chills.
Enthusiasm For Life

Last night I had a horrible dream
But the dogs barking in the morning
Came and chased it all away

Last night I had a horrible dream
But the sunrise in the morning
Came and burned it all away

Last night I had a horrible dream
But your smile in the morning
Came and took it all away

It’s not the least bit surprising that Ours and more specifically, Jimmy Gnecco have fast become my favorite artist(s) over the past 5 or 6 years. The music, the lyrics, the intensity and emotion that Jimmy Gnecco conveys so flawlessly and more importantly, incessantly is just awe-inspiring. The man never slacks off for a second. If you have ever had the pleasure of seeing them perform live, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. I picked God Only Wants You because I think it is the perfect example of what I am describing. It is a new song, and will be on their new album. This is a live performance from probably one of the best bootlegs of anyone that I’ve ever heard. Please listen to this, and venture into the soaring emotion that is Ours.
God Only Wants You

Can you see?
God only wants you to
God only wants you to be
God only wants you
Can you feel?
God only wants you to
God only wants you to dream
God only wants you to
Forever forever forever forever
Forever forever king
And it seems so hopeless

Can you see?
I only wanted you
I only want you for me
I only want you
Could it be?
If i was the only
If i was the only for you
I was the only

Forever forever forever forever
Forever forever king
And it seems so hopeless

Forever forever forever forever
Forever forever king
And it seems so hopeless
