B i o g r a p h y
 (by Jason Birchmeier)

Scottish producer Craig Armstrong scored countless soundtracks to much acclaim during the '90s and into the 2000s. His soundtrack work was in fact so successful that many big-name artists, such as U2 and Madonna, began courting him, while he simultaneously pursued a solo career as a down-tempo electronica producer beginning with The Space Between Us in 1998. Though his collaborations are too numerous to list, Armstrong's most successfully paired with film director Baz Luhrman, producing big-selling soundtracks for Romeo + Juliet (1998) and Moulin Rouge (2001). Born in Scotland, Armstrong began his production career in the early '90s. He composed music for several BBC and STV productions during this time, but his big break came with the Scottish pop trio Big Dish. Armstrong co-wrote three songs on the trio's Satellites album, released in 1991, and also provided string arrangements for the album. Three years later, in 1994, Armstrong worked with renowned trip-hop group Massive Attack on its genre-defining Protection album. This association with Massive Attack would pay dividends a few years later when the group released Armstrong's debut full-length album on its Melankolic label. By the end of the '90s, Armstrong had collaborated with such big-name artists as U2, Madonna, Hole, the Spice Girls, the London Suede, and Tina Turner, in addition to many other lesser-known artists. As mentioned, Massive Attack released Armstrong's solo debut, The Space Between Us, in 1998. The album didn't prove to be as popular as expected, but it nonetheless increased Armstrong's reputation as a noteworthy producer. During this same late-'90s era, Armstrong continued working on soundtrack projects, which remained his most acclaimed work. His work for Jake Scott's debut film, Plunkett & Macleane, was perhaps his most visible work, being released by Astralwerks in the States (as had The Space Between Us a year earlier). However, he worked on soundtracks for much more successful films such as Mission: Impossible (1996), Romeo + Juliet (1998), Cruel Intentions (1999), and — perhaps his most celebrated soundtrack work — Moulin Rouge (2001). Following the success of Moulin Rouge, and its second volume, Armstrong returned in 2002 with his second non-soundtrack full-length effort, As if to Nothing, which boasted a new version of U2's "Stay (Faraway, So Close)." In 2004, he provided the score for the Ray Charles biopic Ray.

The Space between us

This love

( Performed by Liz Fraser )

This love
This love is a strange love
A faded kind of mellow
This love

This love
I think I'm gonna fall again
And ever when you held my hand
It didn't mean a thing, this love

This love
Now rehearsed we stay, love
Doesn't know it is love
This love

This love
It hasn't have to feel love
It hasn't need to be love
It hasn't mean a thing
This love

This love loves love
It's a strange love, strange love

This love
This love
This love is a strange love, strange love
I'm gonna fall again love
It doesn't mean a thing
Think I'm gonna fall again
This Love

*** Thanx to Amy & Konnie for this one ***

Let's go out tonight


( Paul Buchanan )

Where the cars go by,
All the day and night,
Why don't you say,
What's so wrong tonight

Pray for me,
Praying for the light,
Baby baby,
Let's go out tonight.

Where the lights all shine,
Like I knew they would,
Be mine all mine,
Baby I'll be good.

Pray for me,
Praying for the light,
Baby baby,
Let's go out tonight.

I know a place,
Where everything's alright,
Alright,
Let's go out tonight.

Where the cars go by,
All the day and night,
Why don't you say,
What's so wrong tonight.

I pray for love,
Coming out alright, yeah,
Oh baby baby,
Let's go out tonight, yeah.

Baby baby,
Let's go out tonight,
Let's go out tonight.

Tonight,
Tonight,
Let's go out tonight,
Yeah,
Where the cars go by,
Where the lights won't shine,
...,
Tonight.

As if to nothing

Wake up In New York

(feat. Evan Dando)

Wake up in new york
Put a comb through your hair
Don't you ever want to lie down
When there's no-one else around
I want to say this to you

I know i hurt you
You know you hurt me too
Don't you ever want to lie down
Close your eyes and leave the ground ?
I want to get hold of you

I'll meet you in New York
By the drugstore on First Avenue
And then we will lie down
With the buildings all around
I want to say this to you
I want to say this to you

*** Thanx a lot to Nubu, Patrik & James for this one ***

Snow

(feat. David McAlmont)

Is there something I should know?
Something you won't tell me?
I can see it in your eyes,
There's nothing left for you to hide, my love.

Is there somewhere we can go?
Somewhere that we could speak?
If there is time, could we still find,
Piece of mind, some kind of love, my love?

But if you stay,
I know I'd throw it all away,
And if you go,
I know I'll find my way back home.

You say I give it all away,
Leave nothing to imagination,
Well it's all I know, although I know,
You don't want everything, my love.

But if you stay,
I know I'd throw it all away,
And if you go,
I know I'd find my way back home.

Stay,
Stay,
If you go,
If you go.

Is there something I should know?
Is there something I should know?
Is there something I should know, my love?

Stay (Faraway, So Close!)

(feat. Bono)

Green light, Seven Eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don't smoke, don't even want to
I see you check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning byt you're upside down
You say when he hits you, you don't mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Is that what it is?

Red lights, grey morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depend's on who's around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip synch to the talk shows

And if you look, you look through me
And if you talk it's not to me
And when I touch you, you don't feel a thing

If I could stay... then the night would give you up
Stay, and the day would keep its trust
Stay, and the night would be enough

Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio
With satelite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Berlin

And if you listen I can't call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout I'll only hear you

If I could stay... then the night would give you up
Stay then the day would keep its trust
Stay with the demons you drowned
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough

Three o'clock in the morning
It's quiet and there's no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground

*** Thanx a lot to Patrik & James for this one ***

Sea song

(feat. Wendy Stubbs)

The time has come
For me to leave this place
The light, the sound of the cars
Have left me broken

If you can't change your mind
If you can't change your mind
Going back to the sea

Your skin and the sky light
Are fading to the distance
The soul of the life I once had
Echoes through the building

If you won't call my name
If you won't call my name
Going back to the sea

If you won't change your mind
If you won't change your mind
I'm going back to the sea

*** Thanx a lot to Isabel & Andreas for this one ***

Let It Be Love

(feat. Steven Lindsay)

The light is fading in the park,
It's alright,
I'll walk with you until it's dark,
Forever,
If you could only make a sign,
If you could only say you're mine,
If there was one word you could say,
Let it be love,
Let it be love.

I hear you fighting in the snow,
God only knows,
The children running through the streets,
Nowhere to hide,
If you could only make a sign,
If you could only change your mind,
If there was one word you could say,
Let it be love,
Let it be love,
Let it be love,
Let it be love.

If you could only make a sign,
If you could only change your mind,
If there was one word you could say,
Let it be love,
Let it be love,
Let it be love,
Let it be love,
Let it be love.

*** Thanx a lot to Patrik & James for this one ***

As if you said nothing

( Kiss of the dragon OST )

I was thinking what I'd say
For I found out when you left me
It's the something I think everyday
That I long for to tell the story

I was wondering my love
Our love is something special
Here I found you could stay
Today isn't the same

As if you said nothing
Nothing at all
As if you said nothing

All the time you knew
I tried to be good
To do the right things
You can help me find my way

Je repense à ce que je te disais,
( i think again at what I said to you )
Ce moment où tu m'as quitté,
( this moment where you left me )
Ca n'est pas quelque chose auquelle je pense chaque jour
( it's not something I'm thinking everyday )
Je voudrais te dire mon histoire
( I would like to say my story to you )

As if you said nothing
Nothing at all
As if you said nothing
Nothing at all
As if you said nothing
Nothing at all
As if you said nothing
Nothing at all
As if you said nothing
Nothing at all
As if you said...
