Ballyhoo's Latest CD - "Defining Moments"

…Ballyhoo has just released their new CD “Defining Moments” which is topping the charts with their song titled “We are the One” and reaching for the Moon again!

“We are the One” was written by ex-member Mick Matthews titled as “I am the One” and was dedicated to a friend who spent weeks in Intensive Care after a grave motor accident. The song was presented to Ballyhoo for recording, and was changed to the plural by co-writer Fergie, to “We are the One” as he noted it being a song for everyone who has been given a chance.

It is an encouraging and inspirational song that evokes pride and mostly hope. The lyrics are patriotic, and pays homage to the changes that South Africa has overcome post-apartheid. The song also contributes strongly towards an anthem to all South African sportsmen and sportswomen alike. …a song that would be most fitting for a sports anthem!

“Defining Moments” includes other notable original tracks such as “Stop, Stop” written by Rick Woolf a fellow musician and producer, and “Better to have Loved & I’ll be Gone” written by Mick Matthews. While covering classics like “Just a Gigalo, The Dance and Paint it Black”, the complete CD portrays the great versatility of Ballyhoo’s music and displays credible vocal ability by its members Ashley, Derrick and Fergie.

The long awaited album totals 11 tracks and includes the ever so popular song “Man on the Moon”, 2 live recordings “All Shook Up” and a medley of “Queens” greatest hits ….It is a definite must have for any music lover’s collection. Ballyhoo certainly has done South African music proud, once again.

 

Latest Release - We Are The One

  There comes a time, in the life of everyone
A defining moment, you must decide upon
And don’t you let, that moment pass
For this is when the die is cast

Now is the chance, for all women and men
For we will not pass, this way again
And we will go, and with God’s grace
For this is our time, and this is the place

This is the time for us
to stand up and be proud
This is the time for us
to shout it out loud … “South Africa”

Chorus: We are the one, we paid our dues
We cannot fail, we cannot lose
We are the one, who had it all to face
And we stood tall, with no disgrace
We are the one, this is our time, this is our place x2
This is the time for us
to stand up and be proud
This is the time for us
to shout it out loud … “South Africa”

Chorus: We are the one, we paid our dues
We cannot fail, we cannot lose
We are the one, who had it all to face
And we stood tall, with no disgrace
We are the one, this is our time, this is our place x2

We’re going to stay, we will not go
And we wont go any which way the wind blows
It’s now or never, be strong and do not sway
Always remember, this is our special day
