do you realize?? flaming lips singleIt’s hard to tell right away when a song is going to be a classic, but its been been eight years now since the release of The Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??” and the song still holds up better than any other from the past decade.

“Do you realize that you have the most beautiful face? Do you realize we’re floating in space?”

It’s a simple statement that says so much about humanity’s tiny, fragile existence and forms the beginning of multiple musical crescendos that make you want to gesture toward the sky like Flaming Lips’ lead singer Wayne Coyne.
