The Flaming Lips

I like the Flaming Lips.
I especially like their "Do You Realize?" track from 2002 even though I remember satirizing it a bit when it came out. One kids those one likes, I suppose. "Do You Realize?" was named the official rock song of Oklahoma this year. The FLips are now on their album-promoting tour and if they're coming to your neck of the woods, I recommend the show.
Also, you may listen to their new album Embryonic on which will be available till next Monday.
Watch this rather funny exchange between Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne and Stephen Colbert.

This is such a talented group of people. "Do You Realize??" is one of those tracks though where you don't know how to react right away. I tend to crack jokes about it when I hear it and, at the same time, I love it.
