Thread: Ambient dance from '92-'93. "on a wonderful day like today"

  1. #1

    Default Ambient dance from '92-'93. "on a wonderful day like today"

    This is a cool ambient dance track in the same vein as "Selected Ambient Works" and "UFOrb." It appears on many mixtapes I own circa '92-'93. It samples an old song with the lyrics "on a wonderful day like today... I defy any cloud to appear in the sky."

    It has breakbeats, whimiscal whistles and tweeting birds. It sounds like a bit of a novelty, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was a white label track.

    If my description doesn't help, I uploaded a clip.

    Any help would be fantastic!

    I was thinking the same thing. Sounds like something from 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks' maybe?

    The sample is from an Anthony Newley song, "A Wonderful Day Like Today" from the musical "The Roar of the Grease Paint - The Smell of the Crowd".

    The track you're after is 'Wonderful Day' by Flag
    from https://www.discogs.com/Flag-Four-Tr...o/master/13039

    crackin' tune.
