Your mind and your experience call to me
You have lived and your intelligence is sexy

I can tell you taste like the sky 'cause you look like rain

You look like rain
You look like rain
You look like rain
You look like rain

You think like a whip on a horse's back
Stretched out to the limit, you make it crack
Send that horse round and round the track
I want to know what you got to say
I want to know what you got to say
I want to know what you got to say
I can tell you taste like the sky cause you look like rain

You look like rain

In Seattle, the appearance of the sun prompts
numerous calls to the police reporting a yellow

My opinion about most things Morphine.
You look light grey, you look light grey....
Morphine sound, unmistakable
 No Doubt before Mophine, there 's something wrong here...

No Doubt    1

Mophine     10


Bless their hearts, Morphine; a stoner's fave band live, like, ever. Long long LONG time ago, of course. (Just in case potential employers troll RP comments.)  
These guys always get their 7. Always.
no sir........for once TODAY in Seattle it looks like SNOW!
This is SO sexy...
Some of their songs make me feel like wearing black, skinny pants and black be-bop sweater and walking around snapping my fingers... {#Daisy}

I think that was the beginning and end of your career as a humorist.

Today it look like SUNschine. 9pm, sitting in the garden with a good glas of cold whitewine, 25 degree celsius, listen toRP ....
Looks like rare summer rain gonna hit Sacramento very soon.

As a wee lad, I thought they were singing that Puff's green scales "fell like grain."  I think I pictured wheat chaff or something.

Yep.  They got the saxophone in key on this one.

It's graining here right now, gats and dogs.
Interesting—each time I hear it, I rate it a little higher . . . .
Wow.  Nice shot.

"you have lived, and your intelligence is sexy"
possibly one of the sexiest things ever said

this is nice...smooooth. The rains been threatening here for days, now. got a little bit on the walk home from work yesterday, but would have been much happier with an all out downpour. 

Nice rain set:

11:48 am Morphine You Look Like Rain
1:43 am Bruce Cockburn The Coming Rains

"Hey, we bought this thing... cost us $8000, you're damn right it needs to be on every song!". Actually, I just looked up the Selmer MKs and the are like 16k these days.
Fantastic band with a tragic demise.

And today. Bill seems to like repeating segues.
Time to pull in the rains, Bill.
Quintessential late night music. I like, but time is almost noon here and there is a blazing sun outside. I'm confused. :think:

That is totally what I thought too....in fact, having driven across Canada, through the Prairies, I appreciated the simile more before I found out it was "rain" Rain is wet, grey, cold. Grain is sensuous, flowing, smells like warm toast in the sun

Thanks, you've now ruined this song for me... on the upside, at least I'll laugh anytime I hear it now.
Good, but it sounds just like Cowboy Junkies' "Working On A Building."

Do a little research as to why "the band broke up" and you might regret how you put this.
Right. "On July 3, 1999, Sandman collapsed on stage at the Giardini del Principe in Palestrina, Italy (near Rome). He was soon pronounced dead of a heart attack and Morphine immediately disbanded." From (click here)
More Morphine.
Ooops. Sorry. I thought you said looks like grain.
"You look like grain, you look like grain, you look like grain".....thats sexy :rolleyes:

RP has been playing some tunes that have made me hot as the dickens today. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Aside from the fact that I'm at work and my sweetie is out of town. That part is wrong.
Gonna ask Bill to play it again. A twofer for ya. :drool:

Any dibs on RED RAIN playing next??
There is only one person I've in mind to "play" this one with ... Ouuuuu la la Sexxxy Stuff...
Beautiful cover, and I love the low sax sound. Is it a Bass sax? I don't know reed instruments. But I gotta admit, the GRAIN thing does get to me. Not in a good way. Otherwise a very likeable song. I am glad RP revealed Morphine to me.
I lovelovelove Morphine. Sandmans voice and that sax - YUUUMMM! I cant ever get enough. Lily
Agree with all the negatives below, and add that it and its darned horns go on forever. I can't explain why I hate the brass, especially the saxophone, so very much. Also dislike woodwinds. Somebody should construct a psychological instrument to explain what likes and dislikes in musical instruments signify. (Pun intended.) Allmusic.com fails to include "jazz" as a Morphine typing, but it sounds jazzlike to me. The band broke up in 1999. Not too ssssooooon.

Perhaps ,as in,the promise of refreshing change...pre-cursor to a rainbow....something that washes away tired layers, soul quencher. I dunno, song sucks. (kidding)

Sure, it's a compliment. He's not talking about a heavy downpour, with thunder, lightning and flooding. This is one of those sparkling rains that happen while the sun's still shining. You know, the kind that make you want to dance around naked and hold your face up to the sky. It's a sensuous, sexy compliment!
especially favorite in morphine.

Definite makeout music. I like it.
