Zorbing

30 Aug

 

You will not have heard this one.

It is by a band called Stornoway, named after a town in the Hebrides. They were, however, from Oxford.

They were never hugely successful and I have no idea where I stumbled on this track, which was released in 2009.

There is something about it that always makes me think of Autumn, a new beginning, and a first love affair. It cheers me up if I ever sink low. I sing it loudly in the shower sometimes.

You might have to listen to it a few times to develop a taste for it. A bit like going zorbing perhaps.

The video is dreadful.

Zorbing

Conkers shining on the ground,
The air is cooler
And I feel like I just started uni
Walking backwards to my van
You’re at your window,
And I’m tripping every time I think of

Lying in your attic
I can feel the static
The storm has broken, Heavens open

Send my body out to work
But leave my senses
In orbit over south east London
Wind the window down and pinch
Me on the shoulder
Whilst I’ll be off to dream of

Lying in your attic
I can feel the static
The storm has broken, Heavens open
So electrifying, Oh I’m nearly flying
Lost my heart between the sheets of lightening

I’ve been singing you this song,
Inside a bubble,
Been Zorbing through the streets of Cali,
We were always meant to be,
Zorbing together, And i think its high time we started

Lying in your attic
I can feel the static
The storm is breaking, windows shaking
So electrifying, Oh I’m nearly flying
Lost my heart between the sheets of lightening

Lying in your attic
I can feel the static
The storm has broken, Heavens open
So electrifying, Oh I’m nearly flying
Lost my heart between the sheets of lightening

    I was trying to imagine you loudly singing this in the shower. Giggle … Delightful visual. : )
