TUNE DIDI - Fast and Furious
'Fast and Furious' is a bit different when compared to my previous releases - this one is an out and out soppy love song! It didn't necessarily directly correlate with my life at the time but after all of the serious and ‘in your face’ songs I have written last year, it just seemed like a natural development. There’s only so much social commentary and angst you can take before you need a break!
I explored more metaphoric lyric concepts but ultimately, when you listen to the track you can see it's pretty basic! The lyrics to the chorus of 'Fast and Furious' came to me when I was sitting in a hammock on a couple of rare days of hols in France, and there was a motorbike parked in front of me with 'Fast and Furious' written on it, so naturally I wrote a song about it that had a nothing to do with the bike! I wrote this song in two parts, one of which was with an amazing London based artist called Russell Swallow. He was the main contributor to the final section of the song, the bit where it slows down and it is written to show the other side of the story. The classic and painfully imbalanced situation where one person is trying to push the relationship harder and faster, and the other person is just wanting to take it as it is, at a slower pace. But ultimately, the song is a bit of fun, soppy, and I simply love playing it live!
