Song of the Day – “Riding to Work in the Year 2025 (Your Invisible Now)” by The Flaming Lips

Here’s a live version… which is decent.  How many of you out there have the album “Zaireeka” from 1997?  No one?

Zaireeka is an oddity.  It’s actually 4 CDs, but they’re meant to be played all at once start-to-finish.  Yep, that’s right.  The album is spread out over 4 discs, meant to be played on 4 CD players with 8 speakers.  That kind of thing can only be done with at least 2 people listening so that 4 hands can start the CD players in sync.

I’ve never heard the album that way, but it’s one of my favorite albums nonetheless.  It’s certainly my favorite Flaming Lips album.  I mixed all 4 discs together into stereo mp3 files… which is called cheating.

You know what?  here are some neat pictures!

Salvador Dali, of course.

Whoah!  Nice machine!

Laser titties!

I don’t know what’s with that last one but I like it!

Oh… I haven’t said anything about the song… let me think.  Uh… nope.  I can’t think of anything to say about it other than to tell you to listen to it.

I know… that “Your” in the title isn’t a typo.
