The tune is very much built around Christina Courtin‘s lovely vocals from Trifonic‘s song ‘Sooner Or Later’, from their 2008 debut album ‘Emergence‘. The guys have generously uploaded acapellas of this album to ccMixter, but (surprisingly) they aren’t as high quality as on the album. Maybe the guys made them worse on purpose or maybe some re-encoding took place along the way.. who knows. Anyway, I did spend a good while trying to tweak them sound better but very little could be improved. A shame really.
The official package of my Breakpoint 2010 streaming music compo entry is finally online here. This archive contains both the compo and the original versions of my compo entry.
How happy we are today
The feeling will only escape
No matter who we blame it on
When the thrill is gone, it’s gone, it’s gone
This could be the best we got
And what we got is on our hands
Are you going to the countdown?
Sooner or later it’s all in the past
Sooner or later it floats above the glass
Sooner or later it breaks inside the cast
Sooner or later…
Concrete rubble for concrete dreams
Grains of sand floating in the sea
Passing trains, all the passing trees
Can you heed the whistle please?
