I've been a pretty big fan for a while, but I'm one of those people that had to work their way backwards then forewords cause the first album of theirs that I heard was Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. Any ways I saw them live for the first time very recently at the Greek...
and I was only 6 or 7 and my brother called me over to him and showed the video he kept showing songs because at first I didn't like it but now this and a few other bands are the top of my playlists and the main things I listen to. I rarely ever stray from my list of music haha
i was introduced to them by somebody i fell in love with. he would play their songs over the phone :) couple weeks later a friend gave me one of the cd's with the songs he would play. it was so sweet and romantic and just a happy cozy time in my life.
My adoration of Flaming Lips is summed up with this simple song.
Eloquent, yet simply-stated:
"Do You Realize - that everyone you know
Someday will die -
And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make...
