  • Enjoyed the first minute or so but it didn't develop into what i'd of hope. Not a bad song tbh, just not a good one either.
  • Love this, thank you...
  • Ohh, that piano!
  • Nice Version of this... ever being track, love it.
  • Relating to the sample at the beginning: 'Well, the aria is called "L'altra notte in fondo al mare" and belongs to the third act of Mefistofele by Arrigo Boito (the version featured on the Faithless track is performed by Penny Shaw). Here is the full text, sung by Margherita in a soprano register: L'altra notte in fondo al mare Il mio bimbo hanno gittato, Or per farmi delirare dicon ch'io L'abbia affogato. L'aura è fredda, Il carcer fosco, E la mesta anima mia Come il passero del bosco Vola, vola, vola via. Ah! Pietà di me! In letargico sopore E' mia madre addormentata, E per colmo dell'orrore dicon ch'io L'abbia attoscata. L'aura è fredda, Il carcer fosco...' http://everything2.com/title/Mefistofele
