We Can Eat Salad

I’m joining a few recent musical dots again- on Saturday I posted Orbital’s Chime. Orbital’s epic and beautiful Halcyon had a backwards vocal part sampled from Opus III’s It’s A Fine Day (sung by Kirsty Hawksworth, a big hit in 1992). It’s A Fine Day was originally written and recorded a cappella by Jane and Barton and released in 1983. Edward Barton wrote it while living in Hulme, Manchester and it was sung by Jane Lancaster (his girlfriend). A haunting little song.

It’s A Fine Day

This is the wonderful rave-tastic Opus III version.
