Riff: The Flaming Lips – “Sun Blows Up Today”

Feb 13, 2013

Run to outer space/Seeing your smiling face/Everywhere it’s all together/On this epic day

from Sun Blows Up Today lyrics by The Flaming Lips

The soundtrack to a Hyundai ad first aired during the Super Bowl, which explains the relentless ‘and run and run’ jingle, this sun-soaked psychedelic freakout, complete with reference to recent collaborator Ke$ha, is arguably the shiniest and happiest post-apocalyptic countdown you’ll ever hear.
