Music Background info:
This track started out as a remix of Bonnie Tyler's 'Holding out for a hero'. But I changed so much that it is barely recognizable as such. While I was working on the track, my friend DJ XDC dropped by my studio. He listened to the music and though the track was based on Nelly Furtado's 'Say it right'. We were curious how Nelly's vocal would sound combined with my music. And lo and behold... it is actually quite an interesting match. However the acapella sample also contains backing vocals that are totally out of sync. That's why I limited the use of the vocal to the chorus.
The quality of the acapella sample was questionable at best. So forgive me that it's pretty hard to understand the lyrics. In case anyone wonders, here are the lyrics of the chorus:
"Oh you don't mean nothing at all to me
No you don't mean nothing at all to me
Don't you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me"
Video Background info:
This video contains some of the highest quality video footage I´ve ever had the luck to get my hands on. I think it has resulted in one of my best videos so far. But, 'you be the judge!' of course.
For this video I limited the use of special effects to preserve the quality of the original(s).
You might remember from the description of my previous video ('Wet') that I was complaining about the lack of computer power to handle the video editing. I have good news in that department. By the time you read this, I'll have received my super sweet new video workstation, that I ordered last week. Some specs: Intel® Core™ i7-2600K, GeForce GTX 570 / 1.2 GB on-board, SSD Crucial CT128M4SSD2, Corsair 16 GB DDR3-1333
So hopefully all this raw power results in better videos :-)
Credits / disclaimer:
First of all, let me credit Playboy for providing the high quality footage in this video! There´s no doubt in my mind, that the videos play a large role in introducing my music to the world. For several reasons, I had to cut out most the 'cracks and nipples' from the original footage. The original footage from Playboy was juicier. But I simply don't need a lawsuit from Playboy. So don't let me stop you from downloading the uncensored video from the playboy website. This requires a paid subscription. (just so you know). Big thanks to all who have contributed to this video!
