Moby with Wayne Coyne - The Perfect Life

Published on Sep 4, 2013
'the idea for 'the perfect life' video is pretty simple...wayne and i in mariachi costumes walking around l.a picking up a very random and disparate bunch of disenfranchised oddballs and leading them via trolley to a giant party on a roof overlooking l.a while the sun sets.'

The video is as good as Moby's description, the song is even better. Taking in 'Play' style gospel piano and vocals with an added lysergic dash of Flaming Lips leader Wayne Coyne.

One of the best things Coyne has ever done is his single 'The Golden Path' with the Chemical Brothers and I've often wished he had recorded more electronic music. This is nowhere near as dancey or as psychedelic as that particular masterpiece, but it is brilliant.

One of my singles of the year.
