I was a late arrival to the party that is this song, only hearing it for the first time in March 2018. As I listened I reminisced about all the people I knew from the 80’s & 90’s, our dreams and ambitions and what had become of us since. A lot has happened since then and the song has pretty much summed up my mood at events.
At the start of lockdown I was trawling through YouTube and found the isolated Morten Harket vocals. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to unofficially team up with such a great singer (whether he wanted to or not) and decided to try my own accompaniment. This is the resulting track which one friend has said is very Pet Shop Boys (a massive compliment) It’s purely a fan mix and remains the property of the owners and sadly for this reason I’m unable to publish this to Soundcloud (where there are lots of fan mixes using clips too btw)
The track is the first to be mastered on my new DAW and took about 3 months, which seems long but was not helped by the new iMac arriving over a month late, increased parental duties caused by lockdown and learning how to use Logic Pro. Also I started subscribing to Roland Cloud which is a MASSIVE library, yet amazing value for money. Another post on that later but for now I will say this track includes among others a Roland D50, Juno 106 and Korg M1 – all classic 80’s synths!
If you’ve found this page by chance and you happen to know me back in the 1980’s or 90’s, then this track is dedicated to you!
