J'ai connu cet artiste il y a bien 3 ans, avec le titre 'Writers block' (via le très bon remix de Thomas Gold), puis 'Triple tone eyes' .. deux morceaux que j'ai beaucoup aimé, sans jamais chercher à aller plus loin.
Il y a quelques temps, alors que je donnais un coup de main au tournage de One Shot Not, il était invité, et j'ai été littéralement scotchée.
J'ai illico acheté son album (All Night Cinema), et passé en boucle la musique qui m'avait bouleversée: The day I died.

Aujourd'hui, je vous offre son clip (enfin sorti !), et les paroles, tout aussi importantes.

Enjoy sweeties.





Drag myself from my bed around 20 past 6
Get my kids up make breakfast 1 egg 2 toast 3 weetabix

and as i sit down i look up
and your standing in the doorway sun at your back
in my old brown dressing gown
Well no one can love you more than i love you now, but i

Gotta go running for the bus
Coat flying and i try not to miss it this time
but the drivers waiting and that's strange
kids on the top deck quiet for a change
and there's no rain and no roadworks
in the bus lane and all my hurts run away
and i'm smiling as i'm punching in

the day i died was the best day of my life
the day i died was the best day of my life
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
everything will be alright
the day i died was the best day of my life

the secretaries they got a smile for me
and the intray on my desks almost empty
I get a memo from executive joe
saying Rob, the gob, is getting kicked out
for embezzling funds from the company account
and id be lying if i said i wasnt chuffed
cos i always hated rob
and now they'll probbaly offer me robs old job

and in the park at lunch
there's no whinos on my favourite bench
none of that drunk chatter none of that pissy stench
and the 20 little piegeons with the gammy leg
decide to dine from someone elses sandwich instead
and theres something about the city today
like all the colours conspire to overwhelm the grey
and this close to the fire i can feel no cold
but a rainbow halo around my soul

the day i died was the best day of my life
the day i died was the best day of my life
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
everything will be alright
the day i died was the best day of my life

so i leave work get to the high street and i miss my bus
should i wait for another no i can't be arsed
i begin to walk
and rush hour crowd seem to part like the red sea
and i'm stopping at the offy
20 cigerettes and a 6 pack to relax me
and as i cross back over the street
i guess i never saw that taxi

the day i died was the best day of my life
the day i died was the best day of my life
tell my friends and my kids and my wife
everything will be alright
the day i died was the best day of my life
