I know this is probably really old news to some of you -- especially if you habitually refer to Warren Ellis for music recommendations -- but I whole-heartedly urge you to listen to the song "Four Color Love Story" by The Metasciences. Trust me. You'll realize why, after you've heard the lyrics, but the title alone should give you an indication ;)

Here's a link to the MP3 (it was posted on their MySpace, so no worries about the legality aspect):

And if you wanna check out the rest of their stuff:

For those of you using a dial-up, and can't decide whether it's worth the download... Consider this: the song is kinda "neo-folk" sounding, a bit like an 'Ultimate' version of Simon and Garfunkel for Generation iPod.

Just give it a chance -- you won't regret it, I promise! :D

*sigh* It appears that I need to "spoil" you all by posting the lyrics here, to get you to listen. Here we go:

"Four Color Love Story"
The Metasciences


Another day of work is nearly over
You must have seen the whole thing on TV
Seventeen more city blocks and I can almost smell you
Waiting at the windowsill for me

It's our forty-first anniversary
But we don't look a day over twenty-three

Not in this life
Not in this universe

We were still in high school when I met you
If you believe the continuity
I rescued you from robots
And untied you from the tracks
And you pretended not to know that it was me

We didn't even kiss
Until issue #26
This world still feels like 1963

I love this life
I love this universe

And you'll keep my identity a secret
And you will know the touch beneath my glove
I may go out every night and risk my life for strangers
But you're the only girl I'll ever love

Gwen Stacy isn't dead, she's only sleeping
And Elektra isn't evil or insane
Those bastards at the Pentagon can't really kill Sue Dibny
No more than they could kill off Lois Lane

And I swear to God there'll be hell to pay
If anybody tries to take you away

Forget this life
Forget this universe
You're everything I need

You are my life
You are my universe

They'll have to go through me​

You also forget that *I* was the one who recommended it to you in the first place, silly man.

And I downloaded it on dial-up.

Any one who is too impatient download 2MBs of music on a dial-up is a sissy. I download approximately 100MB of music A DAY.

What an odd bump. I saw a Google spider or something was reading this about five minutes before you posted this, so I listened to the song again. It really is cool.
It is indeed a cool song.

I bumped it up because I saw YOU reading it.

But this thread sucks because it is a failure as a thread. It's like the box office bomb of threads.

Box office don't mean ****. This may have gotten less replies, but it still beats the hell out of the "Monsters That Need Shotgunning" thread.:sick:

After listening to some of their stuff, I've decided that I like some of it. And don't like some of it.

This is my astute opinion. Cherish it.
