Sunshine (Original Ride The World Around The Sun)

from Presents The Farm Tapes, Vol. 1 by Todd Parker



Sunshine was recorded at our Second Avenue apartment in the East Village in 1992 and was a staple in the Tadpoles 1992-1993 club shows. We didn't end up re-recording it for the Tadpoles debut CD, He Fell Into The Sky, for some reason. The tune was reborn with a different lighter and spacier feel as Ride The World Around The Sun and it was featured on Tadpoles second CD, Far Out, in 1996 as well as on 1998's Destroy Terrastock Live. This original Sunshine is more effected and psychedelically lethargic than the later Tadpoles versions.


Ride the world around the sun with me
Pack all your things
Your ticket to ecstacy
Ride the world around the sun
Checking it out
You're gonna have fun
Ride the world around the sun with me
Check it out
And see what you can be
