The story behind "OUT" - A Very Nice Album

  From the "horse's mouth".  Chris Loung

Extract:

....If I am contacting you today it is because there is a page which mentions a live gig at the jazz café in June 2008 including 3 pictures taken on stage of Nigel, Xantoné and... myself...(the gorgeous blond woman of the"dynamic trio" that you are taking about)

I thought it might help you and the fans to know that my name is Chris Loung and that i co-wrote the lyrics of a song with Nigel and Xantoné: "Out".

The song is on the splendid album " a very nice album" released in 2008. This is why Nigel invited me to perform that night...

Please permit me to correct also a false information regarding my meeting with Nigel:

We haven't met at a birthday party. It was at the venue "the new morning" in Paris a few months before during a private gig for the filming of a live TV show...since broadcasted on the BBC and where i was just a spectator. And this night it was my birthday.....

I have been invited to this very private event by a friend, as a surprise and great birthday gift!!

Then....Nigel offered me one of the best birthday gift ever.....

As after this amazing concert he heard, without me be aware of it, the demo of my own music...which was given to him by a friend who happened to be his driver when he is in France. This great friend didn't told me he did that...and a few months later.....

Nigel called me and said he loved my music a lot and also my voice; He offered me to come to a studio near Bristol to write some stuff and sing on it...

One of the song became a duo co-wrote by Nigel, Xantoné and myself...and it would be one of the tracks of..."a very nice album".


I hope you that will help to correct this information........I would greatly appreciate that..as it is more honest and more interesting for people to know about how Nigel really is generous and a big heart with other musicians...and how open he is to work with others and experimenting all the time...which make the genius artist and musician he is...

End of extract.


Lyrics.

OUT
Around you life has new meaning,
You are sublime,
For you I have been dreaming,
I’ll be yours for all time,
Oh my love, you have knocked me out.


Dans tes yeux je voyais le ciel
Mon p’tit cœur tout plein d’étincelles
Ce p’tit qui m’shout chahute moi.

You are beyond a star,
My hopes and dreams are you,
Tell me we will live together,
Building ties that none may sever,
You knock me out.

Around you, life has new meaning,
You are ever sublime,
For you I have been dreaming,
I’ll be yours all the time,
Oh my love, you have knocked me out.

Dan tes yeux je voyais le ciel
Mon p’tit tout plein d’étincelles
Ce p’tit cœur qui m’shout chahute moi.

Around you, life has new meaning,
You are ever sublime,
For you I have been dreaming,
I’ll be yours all the time,
Oh my love, you have knocked me out.

Tu sais le vie est belle
Y a pas qu’les anges qui ont des ailes
Et quand t’as souris ça j’me souviens
Là j’ai rougi... oui... easy to see.

Dans tes yeux je vois un arc-en-ciel
Oh! Mon p’tit cœur fait des étincelles
Ce p’tit cœur qui m’shout chatute moi.

Around you, life has new meaning,
You are ever sublime,
For you I have been dreaming,
I’ll be yours all the time,
Oh my love, you have knocked me out.

Coûte que Coûte mais pas sans zèle
De quoi tu doutes j’ al mis des ailes
Nos deux Coeur font des étincelles

You are beyond a star,
My hopes and dreams you are,
Tell me we will live together,
Building ties that none will sever,
You knock me out.

Dans tes yeux y’a un arc en ciel
Mon p’tit cœur tout plein d’ éntincelles
Ce p’tit cœur
Qui m’shout chahute moi.

You have knocked me out.
You have knocked me out.
