Product details

This work originally appeared as a solo number for the character of "Carlton" in the musical Comets and Chocolates. In the scene and the song, Carlton looks back on his life from the advantage or 50 or so years and finds that his life was nothing like he'd expected it to be when he'd been a boy dreaming of his future. Instead, it was all much more thrilling and dangerous, with many unexpected events.
The song was performed in the musical by Greg Shand, who helped create the character and on whose life and career the musical is very loosely based. The premiere season was in September 2013 at The Seymour Centre, Sydney, as part of the Sydney Fringe Festival, where it was promoted, much to its creators' collective delight, as one of the highlights of the festival. This song is the most adaptable of all of the songs to a choral setting, and, considering the original show, a men's chorus seemed to be the best place to start! The music and words remain unaltered from the show version, except for the addition of harmonised chorus parts.
