A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Great song – thank you Trouble!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48am Ike:

Was that Sade song about Beto O'Rourke?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am sphere:

sounds like I have to try some of the Sade back catalog. The singles always worked for me but perhaps there's some more out there.

This World of Keith Haring comp is my jam.

Indian disco jazz, where have you been all my life?
Avatar 9:54am Itzall ClearD'me Nåu:

karlward, I just ordered this, can't wait to hear the whole thing. Got it on CD (!) so I can jam it in the car. Yes, I'm a throwback but also love the fact that CDs now cost roughly HALF of what records sell for. Thanks, kids, keep loving that vinyl!

Good Morning Trouble!!

@fletchernyc: woah, this Starbuck video just took my love for this song to the next level, the marimba solo in particular! www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Passaic River Blues:

That was first time hearing "Moonlight Feels Right": I am fully on board. PKNY is right, too. A marimba solo followed by a moog solo? FANTASTIC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25am Phillippe Bastille:

I like this subtle ska vibe. Did anyone hear Russkaja on Dave Dischel's show. Ska and Russian folk music sung in Spanish (at least the cut I heard)
Avatar 10:25am βrian:

I needs me a white beret and Sonny Bono mustache.
Avatar 10:30am Lixiviated Life:

relaxed vibe going right now.
Thanks Trouble
Avatar 10:31am Hubig Pie:

A white beret and a Bono 'stache were all the rage in "77
Avatar 10:32am Lixiviated Life:

Does anybody really need that?
I'm asking.

this song is AWESOME

EVERYBODY has a price. I love my home & property but show me the money, baby! The (old, beat down) house/property next door to us sold 2 years ago. For 3/4 MILLION DOLLARS (read in Dr. Evil voice)!!!

Sell your house to me, Trouble! I have Monopoly money.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Rich in Washington:

This rendition of je t'aime moi non plus is just begging to be mashed up with Whiter Shade of Pale.
Avatar 11:06am βrian:

Why does every flipper house have the same generic white/gray interior with weird cupboards appliquéed to the wall?
Avatar 11:07am βrian:

Oh, nobody sings this like Emmylou.
  11:08am Mr. Palchepo.:

The house flipping trend has been devastating to skilled labor.
  11:10am Bill W:

I am sorry that I neglected to tell the listenership that there was Michel Legrand karaoke at the French Institute in NYC the other night. Did anyone go?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10am Priscilla:

Hey I have a different version of this song
Avatar 11:11am βrian:

Oh, and those cheesy pre-finished wood-like floors with the damn channels between the boards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12am steveo:

i see Zeiguer has a Willie Nelson cover on this EP also... "name your price" on bandcamp

Frisson (French for 'shiver'), also known as aesthetic chills, musical chills, and colloquially as a skin orgasm [ew], is a psychophysiological response to rewarding auditory and/or visual stimuli that induces a pleasurable or otherwise positively-valenced affective state and transient paresthesia (skin tingling or chills), sometimes along with piloerection (goose bumps) and mydriasis (pupil dilation).

I have only seen le planete sauvage when Stephin Merritt showed it on a bar TV while he was DJing about 15 years ago.

I just watched Cria Cuervos. This song was featured in it. When this song came on the film I was like "How the hell do I know this already? Probably Sheila B or Trouble."
