music video of the day: "The Perfect Life" by Moby with Wayne Coyne

Wayne and I first met in 1995, when the Flaming Lips and I were both opening up for a Red Hot Chili Peppers’ European tour. We became friends, shared a dressing room and the same bad craft services, and watched the Chili Peppers from the side of the stage. I thought of Wayne for this song because the Flaming Lips have evolved in this very open, celebratory band when they play live, and that was the perfect vibe for what I was imagining for 'The Perfect Life.' I texted Wayne and said, 'Hey, I have a song-- want to sing on it?' Thirty seconds later, he texted me back: 'Yes, send it to me, it will be great.' 

Moby to Rolling Stone on this great combo


Pretty great right? Sigh. Indeed. So lovely.
Lovely like the impromptu L.A. sunset singalong below.  Enjoy.
