Song of the Day: Aftermath by Tricky

Back to English today with some mid-90’s trip-hop, if you want tooo listen? Maxinquaye of 1995 was Tricky debut solo album after leaving Massive Attack but really it’s wasn’t totally solo because it included vocalist Martina Topley-Bird very heavy plus Alison Goldfrapp, Ragga and Mark Stewart all performing additional vocals. Tricky is co-produced but I guess, the main thing is Tricky written and composed all minus a couple of the album’s tracks. Did you know? Both Topley-Bird and Tricky had one daughter Mina Mazy born on 19 March 1995 and she sadly died on 8 May 2019. So she was born one month after the release of Maxinquaye too! Aftermath was the very early lead single/video which was released in January 1994 put out over one year before the album, Maxinquaye did finally appeared in February 1995.

For world, for someone
For him, for she
For world, for someone
For him, for me
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people’s plan
I’ll be here for my baby, for my baby I’ll be near
So many things I need to tell you, things you need to hear
So this is the aftermath
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people’s plan
I’ll be here for my baby, for my baby I’ll be near
So many things I need to tell you
For world, for someone
For him, for she
For world, for someone
For him, for me
For world, for someone
For him, for she
For world, for someone
For him, for me
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people’s plan
I’ll be here for my baby, for my baby I’ll be near
So many things I need to tell you, things you need to hear
How can I be sure
In a world that’s constantly changing?
How can I be sure
How can I be sure
In a world that’s constantly changing?
How can I
How can I be sure?
Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
How can I be sure?
