This is the UK Songwriting Contest 2011 Overall Winner and also the 2011 pop category winner. This version of the winning song is by top producer and UKSC judge Stuart Epps (well know for his work with Elton John, Robbie Williams, Oasis etc). Stuart was very impressed with the entry and was keen to work with the writer, Ken Brown, to produce this stunning remix (part of the prize package in 2011).

    Cheers, Todds. Planning on releasing as a charity single next year. so maybe some radio play if I'm lucky. Has taken ages to get a video done to promote it, but it's now underway.

    Wow... should be a hit; where can I buy please? - tell me how and I will, thanks. She (do we have a name please) has a great voice and the composition is beautiful....terrific lyrics and atmospheric

    Boogynights each has their own opinion however but come on we could pick any combination of chords and they would be in a song some where...... correct me if I am wrong please do. : )

    In response to the comment from boogynights, one month ago: I don’t particularly choose to buy/listen to this kind (or should i say form) of music, yet I really do not think it matters if the chord sequence has been used over again throughout modern music (more particularly in pop, since the 1960's). Manny chord sequences are used over and over again, after all there are only so many notes and sequences of chords one can use 'till they make a piece of music that does not relate to people in any way and sounds abstract (i.e. only relating to an elite few, academics perhaps). What really matters is the meaning and how this music informs people and affects them. It's about art. The song is original in many ways. The other point I would like to make: Music evolves throughout time (history) by ways and means of listening. Music we listen to today are based on music from the classical period etc etc. It’s a language that is learned by individuals! All music influences one another! Perhaps the reason composers keep choosing that chord sequence is because it relates to many, that’s what music is about - available and understandable to most! Although any comments are welcome, I feel that comments like that discourage people from writing music that can really have an impact on people’s lives. Music should never be elitist. It should be accessible to all! Most people don’t think here comes chord progression I, iii, IV, V. Good job to the composer!

    Thanks Nikki. That must be the most colourful description of the song I've read :-)

    Stunningly painful, direct, sincere, shocking lyrics over a beautiful more traditionally influenced melody with some high quality recording/mixing technique is a very interesting juxtaposition in my opinion. And a crystal clear voice of the singer that doesn't express all the emotion to top it off! It's a striking combination and demands attention. I listened to the whole thing!

    Chord sequence C A minor F and G: the most tried, tested and popular formula - without in any way wishing to take away any of the winner's credibility. As heard in Sinead O' Connor's 'Nothing Compares'; Beegees' 'Heartbreaker'; Rhianna's 'All About The Money' ... I could go on .... shame the judges had to go for something so formulaic ....
