Hi, Jeenio here! :-) First of all, thanks to Ziphoid for inviting me to this compilation. Also, thanks for Scenesat, it's awesome to have it around. I first started working on this track during the same period I recorded an album with my jazz project. The chord progressions and melodies were at first more complicated, but I managed to make them more simple and audible. It had a jazzy feeling to it, but I decided to make it more soul/funk as the changes in the progressions were made. At first, the idea was to make it instrumental, but I got some inspiration in terms of words, and had to make it a "song". Unfortunately, I couldn't get a singer to work with me before the deadline, so I had to do it myself. Sorry about that. The main message is that there is a life besides computing. We use computers every day, and I'm no exception. But in these troubled times maybe we should go outside and forget a bit the digital world, live in a closer contact with nature and other people. The lyrics are (I know it's engrish, sorry about that): Once upon a time, in a land far away, I used to call my friends to play all day. We didn't have computers cause we couldn't pay, So we'd grab a ball, go outside and play. Even I could, I wouldn't have it otherwise, I was just too happy to have fun and socialize. Sorry but that's something that I cannot compromise, Fat, unhealthy kids, now that's something I despise. As I'm growing older, and wiser - I hope - All I need to live is to know that I'm free, But there are kids that are finding hard to cope With being the only ones without a PS3. I never had a console, not until last year, My parents thought that playing was an uncreative thing. And now you have to own one, it's what I fear, My son will say "playstation" before he learns to sing! Get out of your chair, Breathe some fresh air, Feel the wind in your hair... Take a look around, there's so much to see, Push away the ground, just fly and be free, Never looking down... Say good-bye to your PC and come fly with me.
