I close my eyes and try to remember
Lookin back on it now it seems so much like a dream
All the places I ever wandered, all the kisses I ever stole
Yours are the ones I still remember, they never grow cold
They're just under the radar

My heart is a mountain, I'd walk on fire to get back to you
Reaching out for your touch, I'm clinging to your sould
Thought I'm not far from sight
No I'm not far from sight now
I'm just under the radar

Under the radar
It's a place where all is forgiven
Under the radar
Where love never grows old
It's lying just below the timber line
Under the radar
Where the spirit goes on and on

The time has come and gone, all my options blown to dust
When a gentle tap upon my shoulder left me reelin from my past
I was standing on a stretch of highway, going back to see a friend
Thought I'd reached the point of no return, but came back under the radar
I've been there ever since

Under the radar
It's a place where all is forgiven
Under the radar
Where love never grows old
It's lying just below the timber line
Under the radar
Where the spirit goes on and on

You can trace your thoughts of darkness with the movements of the sun
When you see what stands before you and allow yourself a dream
Though it's not far from sight now
No it's not far from sight
It's just under the radar

Under the radar
Where all is forgiven
Under the radar
Where love never grows old
Lying just below the timber line
Under the radar
Where the spirit carries on

Under the radar
Under the radar
Where love never grows old
It's lying just below the timber line
Under the radar
Where the spirit goes on and on and on and on and on

Yeah, I totally agree. I love reggae when it's done by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, etc., but I think Little Feat are at their best when they stick to their element. I love "Under the Radar" - not this version, though. I never did like the UB40 version of "Red, Red Wine," either - that stupid rap interlude in the middle always makes me think of Jeff Spicoli.
This is very nice! More LF!
Saw Little Feat at the Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH last night. Great show - they've still got it. It was an 'acoustic' show, which basically meant acoustic guitars instead of electric - they still got a wicked good groove going. Fred Tackett is an amazing musician - he must have played 5 or 6 different stringed instruments, as well as the trumpet.
:cowboy: Play more Little Feat

This reminded me of The Radiators. Can we get something from them on the playlist? Thanks.
I agree. I thought about the Radiators too. Something like the classic "What lovers do" or "Red Wine" maybe. (pimp)

You might feel differently if you spelled reggae correctly. If not, well, get help before it's too late. Zweiblumen wrote:

For Reggae, Little Feat smell quite sweet.
I\'m surprised at the rating for this song. I would think it rates a little higher.
I like this.
RP is a very tasteful and stylish place to be. Well done for your intelligent programming, keep it up. I don\'t always like the songs, but I know they\'re the best of their genre, and that opens my eyes to music I would not otherwise expose myself to. This is a good thing.

Not sure what you mean by that. According to littlefeat.net, Shaun has appeared on "Representing the Mambo" and "Shake me Up" and became a full member of the band for the "Ain't had Enough Fun" album.
To regaee for me. This one definatley doesn\'t need to be played again.
God I love this band....tasty indeed. First album with female Shaun Murphy sharing lead vocals.
Wow! Never thought I\'d hear this on here. Thank you to whomever uploaded this! I do like the original better, however. This version just never caught me.
