We know of an ancient radiation
That haunts dismembered constellations
A faintly glimmering radio station

While Frank Sinatra sings "Stormy Weather"
The flies and spiders get along together
Cobwebs fall on an old skipping record

Beyond the suns that guard this roost
Beyond your flowers of flaming truth
Beyond your latest ad campaigns

An old man sits, collecting stamps
In a room all filled with Chinese lamps
He saves what others throw away
He says that he'll be rich someday

We know of an ancient radiation
That haunts dismembered constellations
A faintly glimmering radio station

We know of an ancient radiation
That haunts dismembered constellations
A faintly glimmering radio station

While Frank Sinatra sings "Stormy Weather"
The flies and spiders get along together
Cobwebs fall on an old skipping record

CAKE are staggeringly good... I've seen them twice, and I have and play all their songs, but any of them can still impress me with their sheer mastery of over-the-top witticisms backed up and whacked hard by such uncanny timing and such incredible musical prowess!

 
CoJo - you continue to impress me with your succinct and spot-on song comments and a deep understanding of what YOU like to hear and why.  That's cool. 

And then you go and use CAKE instead of Cake, which is a clear sign that you're no poser.  I guess at least you, me and BillG like them a lot!!

BillG - re: the "this was just played" crap earlier posts mention, all I can guess is it's related to the cache feature and/or skipping/PSDing, possible with different devices.  And if you were to play a CAKE track more than 3x a month - well I say GO FOR IT!!!  Long Live RP...and PEACE!!

Am not fond of Cake either.  But I reckon RP would poorer without the band's music.

 
They have their cake and they can eat it too {#Wink}

Well the feeling that you "always hear the same songs" on RP is getting stronger for me, sadly. I am switching channels more often now since a few years back. And I don't trust the "played x-times in the last 30 days" one bit. This was on a few days back.

 
Previous play before your post (the only other play in that 30 days) was on May 25th, 3 weeks previously. Must have been memorable :-)


                                      Nope.

I really don't like Cake.  However, my waistline demonstrates otherwise. And, again, they just form a part of the fascinating tapestry woven by the artists at Radio Paradise.  By the time I've typed this, Fink are playing, so I'm comfortable again.  While others click PSD.  And so it goes on.
I like Cake. Many of their songs are original, different, and interesting.

I have long gotten over the fact that listening to Cake,  Oi Va Voi, or any other PSD worthy artist is a necessary evil here at RP.

I also realize that is an opinion, it might be exclusive myself or open to discussion...............

Time to complain about Cake again. Variety makes the world go 'round, and if all we had to read were sycophantic posts, life in the comment section would be extremely dull - much like the "music" Cake are offering.

On the contrary. I LOVE the negative comments on some songs. Personality!

This one's a nice 7 for me. :) 
This sounds great if you are not into music - after all, there is very little music to be heard here - like they are influenced by The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Rather than complain about Cake, I'd like to thank Bill and Rebecca for the PSD button. Problem solved.

Great guitars, great trumpet, great song.
Although I do not care for the subject of the song, I do love this song - love Cake - different
Thank The Lord, for a second I thought the track name was the artist and my finger hovered over PSD. Actually, Frank might've been better than this.....
