DJ Shadow - I've Been Trying Lyrics




Hi kitten, this ones for you...

I've been trying to get you to love me
I've been trying to get you to care
Put forth a lot of effort
But I just don't seem to get nowhere
I've been trying to get you to love me
I've been trying to get you to care
Put forth a lot of effort
But I just don't seem to get nowhere

I've been trying to get you to love me
I've been trying to get you to care
Put forth a lot of effort
But I just don't seem to get nowhere

DJ Shadow I've Been Trying Comments
  1. Cyan Dino

    Hold on is that an interpolation of the synth from I Can’t Go For That?

  2. jnyxtreme

    0:25 R Stevie Moore?

  3. atheg74

    The flute parts sound like King Crimson's I Talk to the Wind

  4. Ari Heinonen

    Try harder!?! Ha =)

  5. Vaggos X

    Music sample is from "Lover" a track by Bethlehem

  6. Josh Ryder

    false to all the ones saying its floyd. now i don't know who the original is, but i do know its not wish you were here guaranteed

  7. alexander js

    does anyone know the original version?

    James Lowe

    Bethlehem - Lover

    jazz strider

    now trying real hard to put that out my mind :) its hard!

  8. Tom Bradley

    Triad - Jefferson Airplane... that's what i'm hearing :)

  9. James Clayson

    This song owes a hell of a lot to 'Hong Kong beat' a TV theme tune from the BBC in the 70s

    Not taking anything away from it, I like the track.... Just adding to the sample source convo...

  10. Ryan Strochinsky

    Bethlehem lover is the sample

  11. justin holmquist

    the intro sounds a bit like floyds wish you were here as well as some darkside and piper gates at dawn., It is not wish you were here, i played the song for years on guitar, trust me. Love the song though, probably the closest anyone can match to floyd.

  12. Myles Hall

    My initial reaction was it sounds like wish you were here but i think the chord progression and the overall sound is the same as Neil Young's 'Down By The River' and Pink Floyd's 'Breathe'

  13. I don't beat my wife

    nope pink floyd.

  14. I don't beat my wife

    nope pink floyd.

  15. I don't beat my wife

    nope pink floyd.

  16. I don't beat my wife

    No. It's pink floyd wish you where here.

  17. I don't beat my wife

    the "beat" is NOT liquid visions by morning rain... its pink floyd wish you where here... come on guys... not that hard...

  18. Marcus Colvin

    this song is me in a nut shell

  19. Mista Dobalina

    down by the river

  20. Dharma227

  21. killingswitch

  22. killingswitch

  23. killingswitch
