The man who has everything … lyrics

#1 Post by rashomon »

Help me!

What’s being sung by the female vocalist at the start of this absolute gem of a tune?!

Come on!
Come on!

Then … something about power?
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

"How long will you do some more?"

A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

I was also curious about it but on the live performances it really sounds like it. :)

Those vocals and many more were used on that period. Those cd samples you would buy, released in 1991, called:
Zero G Database
vol 1,2,3
on youtube you can find it

Also used pretty effectively by Orbital the same year (under their Golden Girls pseudonym) in 'Kinetic':

Original song from 1977, but made into the house classic it is today by none other than Shep Pettibone in 1983.
