Runaway. I saw it and I loved it so I picked a paper and pencil to write the name. Of course I wrote it completly wrong. But after a while I found the correct name so I downloaded as many songs as I could find and now I got all albums.

I first heard of this band waaay back in 1993- 94, while I was in high school. I saw the video for When you gonna Learn on BET , I was hooked :D . I was drawn to the funk sound, they were a little funk, hip hop, soul, and the look of the group was cool. They were easy to relate to. and i had a super crush on Toby :oops:

HAHA Jamiroquai on BET? awesome! Anyway, for me, it was the oh-so-infamous "Virtual Insanity" video that exposed me to Jamiroquai, and the follow up video to "Cosmic Girl". I've been hooked ever since

I'm not going to lie, it was when I heard "Canned Heat" in Napoleon Dynamite. That was my favorite part of that movie and at first when I heard the track I thought Jay was black, then I looked Jamiroquai up on Google and was very wrong, hahahaha!

Cosmic Girl was the song I heard. I remember coming to my grandmother's home from elementary school. The national kids television showed the music video for "Cosmic Girl" and it was an instant hit with me. Although being about 7 years old at that time I loved the beat and lyrics to the song, plus the video had all those wicked Italian sportcars in it.

Hi Riqu3lm3,

Here is a link to a very funny video interview done with Jay Kay a while back where he talks about the filming of various Jamiroquai videos and the mishaps that were involved in the filming of the Cosmic Girl video...including the infamous Lambo crashes. If you haven't seen it, take a look...it's a great interview! If you want to skip the first part and go straight to the Cosmic Girl story, then jump to 3:12...that's where Jay starts to talk about that particular video. :)

It's cosmic girl for me i think. The previous two albums didn't get much airplay in Ireland and i didn't have MTV in 1996 so i only really heard the commercial songs. My bro bought me TWM album for xmas and i played it over and over. About a year later i was at a party in college and some dj played the remix of Space cowboy and i just got totally hooked. I've all albums now and am looking forward to seeing them at a gig again soon xxxx :oops: :oops: :D :? :lol: :cry:

I was in Burger King one day when I was about 11 (i'm 19 now) and they used to olay the Space Cowboy Remix (David Morales Remix) sometimes. I think it used to come on the radio there, and I didn't know who it was by. Then when I first got the internet connected and I delved into the realm of playing music online, I ran out of ideas and thought i'd track down who sang 'that Space Cowboy song'. So then I came across Jamiroquai and heard the TROTSC and TWM albums and fell completely in love with every single thing about every single song on those albums. I wouldn't stop playing them! I decided to go a get one of them, as I could only get on e with my pocket money. But then when I went there they had this sweet deal on where you could get (and you're not gonne believe the coincedence) both of the albums for £10, which is something like 2 for 1. I must've spent weeks choosing between the two and was so happy to be able to get both It really seemed like fate at the time, because you don't know how totally into their music I was!!!
Yep i've probably gone off on a tangent here agin but there's my story :D
