  • Over the past few years
    To the traditional sounds of the English summer

    What were the skies like when you were young?
    They went on forever and they, when I, we lived in Arizona
    And the skies always had little fluffy clouds
    And they moved down, they were long and clear
    And there were lots of stars at night

    And when it would rain it would all turn, it, they were beautiful
    The most beautiful skies as a matter of fact
    The sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire
    And the clouds would catch the colors everywhere
    That's neat, 'cause I used to look at them all the time when I was little
    You don't see that

    Layering different sounds on top of each other
    Layering different sounds on top of each other

    Little fluffy clouds and little fluffy clouds and
    Little fluffy clouds and little fluffy clouds and

    What were the skies like when you were young?
    They went on forever and they, when I, we lived in Arizona
    And the skies always had little fluffy clouds
    And they moved down, they were long and clear
    And there were lots of stars at night

    And when it would rain it would all turn, it, they were beautiful
    The most beautiful skies as a matter of fact
    The sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire
    And the clouds would catch the colors everywhere
    That's neat, 'cause I used to look at them all the time when I was little
    You don't see that

    Little fluffy clouds and little fluffy clouds and
    Little fluffy clouds and little fluffy clouds and

    When I, we lived in Arizona
    And the skies always had little fluffy clouds
    And they moved down, they were long and clear
    And there were lots of stars at night

    And when it would rain it would all turn, it, they were beautiful
    The most beautiful skies as a matter of fact
    The sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire
    And the clouds would catch the colors everywhere
    That's neat, 'cause I used to look at them all the time when I was little
    You don't see that, you might still see them in the desert

    The most beautiful skies as a matter of fact
    Purple and red, purple and red and yellow on fire
    And red and yellow on fire
    The clouds would catch the colors Writer/s: DUNCAN ALEXANDER ROBERT PATERSON, MARTIN GLOVER, STEVE REICH

  • Matt from Omaha, NeThe identity of the man interviewing Rickie Lee Jones is not known. It isn't Levar Burton.
  • Valo from Moscow, Russia FederationAll these three samples were taken by The Orb without permission. But all of the artists liked the track a lot (especially Rickly Lee and Steve Reich) so they decided not to sue
