Blind – Hercules & Love Affair, Antony, Frankie Knuckles

28 01 2008

Having already discussed how great the new Hercules & Love Affair single is, here is the video so you can see for yourself. The lavish vocals are provided by Antony of Antony & The Johnsons and I think this electro-disco setting really suits his vocal stylings. As I mentioned before, it really reminds me of ‘Voyage Voyage’ by Desireless but it’s also got a dollop of Bronski Beat and Yazoo in there. It would be nice to see him make a total departure with his next record and possibly explore his eighties/disco influence a bit more. I’ve also included the Frankie Knuckles mix below, though this is just the audio with a still image but it’s also pretty wonderful. I know it’s still only January but I’ve a feeling ‘Blind’ will feature in a lot of people’s best song of 2008 lists come the end of the year.

Hercules And Love Affair – Blind

As a child, I knew
That the stars could only get brighter
And we would get closer
Get closer
Oooooh

As a child, I knew
That the stars could only get brighter
That we would get closer
Get closer
Leaving this darkness
Behind

Mmmm-mmmm
Oooooooh

Now that I’m older
The stars should lie upon my face

When I find myself alone
Find myself alone
Oooooh

Now that I’m older
The stars should lie upon my face
And when I find myself alone
I feel like I
I am blind

Feel it
Feel it
Feel it
Feel it
Like I am blind
I am blind

I wish the stars could shine now
For they are closer
They are near
But they will not present my present
They will not present my present

I wish the light could shine now
For it is closer
It is near
But it will not present my present
It makes my past and future painfully clear

To hear you now
To see you now
I can look outside myself
And I must examine my breath and look inside
Ooooooh

To see you now
To hear you now
I can look outside myself
And I must examine my breath and look inside
Because I feel blind
Because I feel blind

I feel it
I feel it
I feel it
Like I
Like I’m blind
Ooooooh
The movie will
Mmmm, and feel it
Oooooh, I feel it

This is not the most beautiful or unique music or voice I’ve heard of; but for some reason, I cannot stop listening to again and again.
