Charly Lownoise Mental Theo* ‎– Wonderfull Days

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
Vocals taken from "Help (Get Me Some Help)" by Tony Ronald, a Dutch Top 10 single in 1971.

In some cases, vocals on "Wonderfull Days" should be credited to Dutch singer Albert West
The original sample had not been cleared at the time of release and was thus replaced by West's vocals due to copyright infringement in various territories (mostly the German market).

As stated by Charly Lownoise & Mental Theo in the book 'Mary go wild: 25 jaar dance in Nederland'

referencing Wonderfull Days, 12", MM 1012
This was clearly inspired by a new German sound that was introduced in the Summer of 1994. It had the tempo of hardcore gabber (say 160-170 BPM), but also more melody and a more positive feel than previously available hardcore. Artists like Westbam, Marusha, Perplexer, Mark'Oh, Scooter and U96 added various new elements like bagpipes, musical samples and smurf-style vocals (the latter by sampling 33rpm LPs at a speed of 45rpm).

"Wonderfull Days" was created around the same principle. In this case, a sped up sample of a forgotten Dutch top 10 hit, "Help (Get Me Some Help)" by Tony Ronald, was used. However, as the record hit the big time and the source of the sample was discovered, they had to replace the sample by resung vocals. It charted in the first week of 1995, remained in the charts for 13 weeks and reached #2 in the Dutch Top 40, only held off from the top spot by a smurf cover of 2 Unlimited's "No limit".

This is the australian release of "Wonderful Days". The voice is a little bit harder than the original and the "Trance Mix" isn't the mix that we already know! It's another seven minutes remix. I'll remember me... This song was played on MTV in october 1994 with that special voice. 10 years later the "Rotterdam Mix" with that voice appears on the double album "ID&T presents Charly Lownoise" in 2004.
