Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space is a song part of the third studio album by Spiritualized -also called LaGWAFiS- , released in June 1997.

The title of the album is taken from the philosophical novel Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder, the context being: "Only philosophers embark on this perilous expedition to the outermost reaches of language and existence. Some of them fall off, but others cling on desperately and yell at the people nestling deep in the snug softness, stuffing themselves with delicious food and drink. 'Ladies and Gentlemen,' they yell, 'we are floating in space!' But none of the people down there care."

OK, the song itself is quite a change of pace compared to some others we have published before in this blog ;), but somehow it has something that forces you to keep coming for more all the time... is like a spell cast on you which you cannot get rid of no matter how hard you try...

Some other listeners' comments:

*"This song is a strange kind of magic"

"Don't know why, but I just love the moment in the beginning, when the woman is saying 'Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space.' - her voice sounds so... sad"

*"Mesmerizingly beautiful. Something about this song really almost haunts (or maybe “lingers in” is a better description, since "haunts" sounds so negative) my thoughts and draws me to listen to it again."

Anyway, give it a try!

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
Only fools rush in
But i, I cant help
I cant help falling
Falling in love with you
