about

The soundtracks to games, films and life of the 1980s are the pinnacle of high calibre design and infectious listening. Who doesn’t love the intros to those cartoons, or the driving rhythms of TV cop shows, right through to the keep the dream spirit of the action films that have shaped generations… mine, yours... and still it continues.

Retrograde is a collection of tracks that have manifested themselves from thousands of hours gaming, or viewing, each minute becoming more and more enriched by the influence. The hope is you will hear, and you will remember a time, it’s not the exact time you know of, but the recall and connection should feel familiar. Progress can sometimes be found in retrograde...

Track Name: Better - Feat. Rachael Jones
Verse 1

I know you better,
Than you know yourself.
You ain't a thinking, 'bout nobody else.
I'm seeing through you, your smile just so you know.
On and on, so this story goes.

You take your chances,
You blur all the lines.
It gets me thinking,
You're set in your lies.
You're gonna loose me, just so you know.
On and on, is how your story goes.


Chorus

I know you better.
(than I think I really should)
You taking me under.
(s’like you drag me down wit’a ya)
I'm too invested.
(To stop, get off this crazy ride)
My mind has change, its telling me to shake you loose.

I should have know better.
(then to fall so far for you)
I feeling the pressure.
(I'm reaching the end with ya)
Next time I’ll know better.
(to listen to the voice that says)
On and on, so the story goes.

Verse 2
More and more of time has gone,
Less and less you think I know.
I’m there every step you take,
You're losing your mind.
The people that your hanging with.
Are running games around you boy.
Give it up, start reading all the signs...

Chorus

I should have know better.
(then to fall so far for you)
I feeling the pressure.
(I'm reaching the end with ya)
Next time I’ll know better.
(to listen to the voice that says)
On and on, so the story goes.


Bridge

I want better
I need better
I Deserve better
Change for the better
Track Name: Talk Talk
Verse.
I’m all out of luck,
I hold on to this dream,
Giving all I got,
To make this work,
Time takes the other hand,
and leads me right away from you
and all I really want, all I really want to do,
is keep this crazy thing alive.

Chorus.
I don't know how long that you can go and listen to their talk talk, talk talk, talk talk, talk talk.
I'm here for you thats all you need now don't listen to their talk talk, talk talk, you mean more to me... than anything.

Bridge.
I want you...
to always know. I will won't ever
let you go.

I know you got a little place to, run away
I know you want to leave the town, someday
I know that you've heard all the talk, from someone
I won't let you down I'll be the man you want the only one

Verse.
I’ve fell into love,
Now I live this dream,
You are all I got,
This thing just works,
You take me by the hand,
And lead me right away from here
I got what I want, I got all I want,
And we'll keep this crazy thing alive.

Chorus.
Times moved by and we have changed the play, we don't listen to their talk talk, talk talk , talk talk, talk talk.
I'm here for and you're here for me we don't listen to their talk talk, talk talk.
Track Name: Motorcade
Verse:
Out on the road,
Out on the street,
A player with a part in this.
I'm working the game ,
Change up the play,
That's the way it is.

This ain't the time.
Tthere ain't no place
Nobody saw us leave for here,
I'll keep the wire online,
Wait for the sign,
Until we're clear.


Pre Chorus:
And There is no return from this.
I'll find a way to make it right.
And I won’t let you die like this.
If We're going down, Ain't going down without a fight!

Chorus:
When the calls out on the wire,
We've just gotta play for time,
Leave me just to work the room.
The targets inside,
Punch into drive,
With a Price tag on your head,
Got a bounty for your life,
Gonna get you to that court alive.
Your testify,
You're safe inside,
The motorcade.

Bridge:
And it won’t be long,
And it won’t be long,
The end’s sight I swear, I swear.
Just keep hold on,
Just keep hold on,
I won’t let nobody get to you, I swear.


Pre Chorus:
And There is no return from this.
I'll find a way to make it right.
And I won’t let you die like this.
If We're going down, Ain't going down without a fight!

Chorus:
When the calls out on the wire,
We've just gotta play for time,
Leave me just to work the room.
The targets inside,
Punch into drive,
With a Price tag on your head,
Got a bounty for your life,
Gonna get you to that court alive.
Your testify,
You're safe inside,
The motorcade.
