Yeah! It’s Dayvan Cowboy!

Honestly, I didn’t think this was ever going to happen, but I found a slam-dunk crystal clear vocal sample in Dayvan Cowboy a couple nights ago.  Got me all pumped, all tingly in my scalp and spine.  I live for moments like that.

At 3:09, (listening to the Trans-Canada Highway version now for reference, but i heard it in both) there’s a crescendoing cymbal buildup that’s followed by two big cymbal crashes.  Around 3:12, right after the second big crash, a quiet male voice in the left channel says “Yeah!”  It’s a quiet voice at the peak of the song, so it will doubtless take a few listens.  It’s there, though. I promise.

I don’t think much analysis is needed.  It’s an uplifting track, and I’m glad this disembodied voice is as into it as I am!

There are probably several more voices waiting to be found in this track.  I’ll keep you posted.

Update: At :07, I hear a whispery voice saying “Goodbye”.  “Good” in the right channel, “bye” out the left, and then a very quiet voice to the left, sounds like it’s descending, and I hear it say “everyone.”

That’s all I got for now.  Goodbye everyone!
