Will You remember?

lyrics:

 

Hello my friend,
it's me,
your first...
first computer,

I'm so sad,
I haven't seen you for a long time
I'm sorry...

I'm feeling old
and so tired,
nothing is eternal....
(and) you are not a boy now,

Time is going,
but I know...
I will...never...
forget you.

 

*****************


I still remember,
all those hours,
We have spent together,

So many games
and fun,
Your parents hated me,
Yes, I'm only machine.
 
I'm all in tears...because
I have understood,
Those days have gone...

Now all I want to do...
is to sing for you,
maybe one last time...


***************************


Are you still with me?
Friend... that's important to me,

Before I will rest,
I only want to say,
please, please remember me...

REVIEW BY exocytosis (25/11/2015)

"Will You Remember" is, simply put, an amazing piece of work - the slew of string instruments in combination with the unmistakebly SID-esque synthesizer sound make for a great C64 cover all by itself. What really puts the icing on the cake and makes this song stand out is how its robot voice manages to convey feelings of despair, sorrow and sadness. With the expected technological singularity mere decades away, counting CPU cycles and juggling IRQs seem like a hazy memory of an age that briefly flashed before our eyes. With the impending society-wide introduction of super evolved computers that will forever change the world as we know it, I can see why our Commodore computers already urge us not to forget them, and plead for us to remember. And I will. I wouldn't be the same person if my great parents hadn't bought me my VIC-20 or my C128. I will remember.

REVIEW BY LaLa (30/11/2015)

What a wonderful, clean arrangement: not a single note that's wasted, not a single note that's useless. But what really makes this remix is the lyrics: it's a mix of touching eulogy and techno-romance that may not seem so out of place today in the age of smartphones and smart TVs - but this began 30 years ago when it was not fashionable and commonplace to be glued to computer screens. One cannot be NOT moved by the lyrics, and, of course, by the synthesized voice that "sings" it: that unmistakable Commodore speech engine. My only technical note is that I wish the voice was put more in front of the rest of the mix. A remarkable piece of nostalgia. Dziekuje, Tomasz!
