Текст песни: To pretend no one can find The fallacies of morning rose Forbidden fruit, hidden eyes Courtesies that I despise in me. Sour Times is a song by English trip hop group Portishead, from their debut album Dummy. It was written by all three members of the band. It was released by Go Beat Records in 1994 as a CD single, accompanied by three bonus tracks: It's a Fire, Pedestal, and Theme from 'To Kill a Dead Man'. The song uses a sample from Argentine composer Lalo Schifrin's Danube Incident, from the 1967 album More Mission: Impossible. Portishead speeded up the sample to a desired tempo which took Schifrin's. Portishead may not have invented trip-hop, but they were among the first to popularize it, particularly in America. Taking their cue from the slow, the video for Sour Times from Portishead's Dummy for free, and see the artwork, lyrics and similar artists. Sour Times isn't exactly the feature single from Portishead's first album, Dummy, but it might as well be. It's the one whose video samples scenes from their short film To Kill a Dead Man, whose images also make up the cover for the Dummy album. Let's start with To Kill A Dead Man. It's a short film included on the bonus section of the 2002 DVD version of Portishead's Roseland NYC Live. We'd be hard-pressed to describe it, beyond saying it's a film-noir assassination story, sort of like if David Lynch made spy movies. See it here. Sour Times. Portishead - Sour Times 1994.
