The Flaming Lips' 6-Hour Song, 'I Found A Star On The Ground,' Is Here (AUDIO)
Well, that was fast. The Flaming Lips announced they were doing a six-hour song last month, and now it's here! We're only about one-sixth of the way through "I Found a Star On the Ground," but so far it's sounding as experimental as you would expect from a six-hour song. We can tell you that the words "I Found a Star on the Ground' are indeed in the song, and they are first spoken around the 3:15 point, when someone who sounds suspiciously like Deerhoof's Satomi Matsuzaki starts to sing.
The Flaming Lips previously stated that anyone could enjoy one second of fame if they paid $100 to have their name included in the song. The money would then be donated to the Central Oklahoma Humane Society and the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. If you're one of those people, you might be feeling a little cheated right now, as a lot of the words -- at least at its one-hour point -- are mumbled and incomprehensible. But hey, at least you gave to a good cause, and Wayne Coyne or some unidentifiable voice will be speaking your name.
