12_The Long Goodbye (2000) (2012 remix)
(Paul Brady / Ronan Keating)
A major change for me stylistically, I’d always loved good mainstream pop but thought it was not for me. The demo I made of this in 98 was hanging around for a couple of years as we tried to find some pop artist to record it. Anytime anyone heard it they said I should put it out myself but I kept feeling it wasn’t me. Eventually I got over my hang up about it, expanded on the demo and put it out on my album ‘Oh What A World’. Ironically this was one of my most successful records, especially in UK. The song also reached No 1 in USA for Brookes & Dunn and was a hit all over Europe for co-writer Ronan Keating. This new 2012 remix shows off Fiachra Trench’s gorgeous string arrangement.
