Quiet Bounce: I Had A Vision Of You

I've always had a bit of an unhealthy obsession with Jamiroquai. It all started when a former love of mine introduced me to Return Of The Space Cowboy in college. For six months after that, this album and especially this song were played so much that my roommate eventually acquiesced and succumbed to its power. Jay Kay--Jamiroquai's frontman whose birthday I share--is known as a never-ending cheeba-toker, enfant terrible, and super-wealthy vocalist who is likely trying to figure out which Lamborghini to drive today. I can't say that I'm mad now that I'm revisiting this song this many years later. It's beautiful and greatly encapsulates a time in music when Brand New Heavies, Incognito, and others were dominating the world music scene. Luckily, music is able to perfectly remind me of warm memories that this one is able to bring back effortlessly.

  1. The record that did me in was "Traveling Without Moving." After listening to that record, I bought all the rest of their stuff.
    Does anyone know when the new record is coming out?

  2. Love,Love,Love Jamiroquai. Sometimes soothing, sometimes heartfelt, sometimes so funky-as-hell-you-have-to-shake-you-booty. They can do it all. Synkronized was the album that pulled me in. Soul Education, Falling and King For a Day? Classics. At least for me.

  3. I got every single Jamiroquai cd, I got hooked when i heard Blow Your Mind off of Emergency On Planet Earth.

  4. Yessssssssss...yes indeed.

  5. "the return of the space cowboy"! what an album!, they are coming back to this style for the new album....definately my favorite band

  6. A classic! JAMIROQUAI is one of my all time favorites. His collections of songs are incredible. True musicianship. Oh, and they stay in heavy rotation 😉

  7. This song wonderfully encapsulates this era, as well as Sweetback and a few others.

  8. AH! Jamiroquai is my favorite all time band. They can do no wrong. I didn't realize they were coming out with a new album. That just made my day. I think Return of the Space Cowboy is my favorite Album.

  9. ill mami I had this album, but never got around to listening to this track. I'm a lil pissed. This would've been on rotations with George Howards "Shower You With Love" and Incognito " Spellbound and Speechless".

  10. Il.. this track did it to me too. Man I heard this and got taken back to a former college lover who used to play this during the midnight hours. His talk was as smooth as this beat. Living in Sydney though we get to hear way more JK than in the states. Thanks for this post.

  11. This song takes me back. Jamiroquai has so many songs that define certain moments in life. Gives me the warm and fuzzies...
