So fresh! So new! Getting deep into this, finishing up our jaunt through BoC’s road-trippin’, pop-record sensibility, mega-organic, twentysomething phase.
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!
