Tag Your Name on Soundcloud: “Found a Star on the Ground” – Flaming Lips’ Six-Hour Charity Song

Six hours is exactly as much time as it takes a cop to book a DUI suspect, or for your television set to try and kill you, according to science. We thank the Flaming Lips for a much better option.”

“It’s taken us about three weeks. I think, in our usual overconfidence, I think we thought it would take a couple of days and it’s taken a couple of weeks.”
-Wayne Coyne to Rolling Stone

In the wee early hours of September 13th The Flaming Lips finished creating “I Found a Star on the Ground” – better known as their “six hour song.”  The band rushed to complete the track before heading back on the road to play seven shows between September 13th and 21st.   Exactly one week after its completion, Wayne Coyne personally sold the band’s first batch of Strobo Light Toys at Portland’s Jackpot Records.  By the next morning – September 21st – the entire six hours were streaming courtesy of Slow Nerve Action (unofficial Flaming Lips message board) - albeit split into three sections, two-hours each.

As previously reported, The Flaming Lips created a website in association with the project – flaminglipssixhoursong.com - which allowed fans to donate to two causes closely associated with the band.  Givers of $100 are named in the track by special guest Sean Lennon (yes, that Sean Lennon).  According to Wayne, “We kind of look at the list as like, there’s like a couple of movies out there where they read the list of all the people who have gone missing in the Bermuda Triangle. Over the past couple of nights we’ve had Sean Lennon, and he’s read this pretty big list. I’m not sure of the number, but it’s over a couple hundred by now – and he’s read this whole list over the phone in kind of this strange tone that I think sounds like his father.”

The proceeds from the track benefit the OK Humane Society (self-described “nonprofit animal welfare organization; promotes adoption, trap/neuter/return and spay/neuter programs to help end pet overpopulation in the OKC metro area“) and ACM@UCO (the groundbreaking contemporary music college program with numerous close ties to the band).  You may remember, the Lips substantially donated to both these causes in December 2010: a poster Wayne Coyne printed with his own blood was auctioned on eBay for $10,000.00, all funds went to The Flaming Lips’-associated music college and the Central Oklahoma Humane Society.

If you are one of these donators named by – in Wayne’s words’ “the ghost of John Lennon” – please tag your name on the sound file at soundcloud by leaving your name as a comment at the point your name appears here, here or here

Additionally, if you are on twitter, please tweet your name with the hashtag #6hoursongtag (preferably @FutureHeartDay).
