About the Song

"That's Life" is the first original song we have released since our debut album in 2012. A lot has changed in three years and we feel like we've reached another point in our lives where we have made enough experiences to write another thousand songs. We have progressed as musicians, changed as humans and have grown our limitless passion for music.

The song takes a look at life as it is, and we have certainly experienced, that no matter how hard people are trying to pretend, no one really knows what's going on.

Musically it is a mixture of a rock ballad with classical and funky elements, with a touch of Swing, and might come out great as film music in the right movie. (Hint, hint!)

We also produced a music video (download available here) for it. As usual, the "soundtrack" was recorded in our studio.

Verse:
I think I got it but I haven't got a clue
Still don't know what's it all about (we can't find out)
If life has meaning it's a meaning that's too mean to figure out
(There's) no doubt

Bridge:
One day I'm everybody's darling
The other day I'm just another fool
And I just might not get the answers from playing by the rules
Not cool

Chorus:
That's life
That's what you get
You better not bet that it's always coming up roses

Life
Give it a chance
Get up and dance and romance before the book closes

Verse:
If there's a better way to get us through the day
I wouldn't mind if you could tell (you might as well)
If life is wonderful I wonder if it's just a tragic spell
That makes it hell

Bridge:
One day I'm everybody's darling
The other day I'm just another fool
And I just might not get the answers from playing by the rules
Not cool

Chorus:
That's life
That's what you get
You better not bet that it's always coming up roses

Life
Give it a chance
Get up and dance and romance
Get up and give it a chance

Interlude/Guitar Solo:
You got a life to live, got a heart to give, Yeah Yeah
You got a right to live, got a lot to give, Yeah Yeah
Oh Yeyeyeyeyeah

Verse:
But since I love you and I know you love me too
There's little reason to complain (you feel the same)
Now life has meaning and that meaning feels like shelter in the rain
And you're to blame

Bridge:
Now everybody's everybody's darling
And nobody is anybody's fool
But boy, you also won't find any answers by breaking every (all the) rule(s)
Not cool

Chorus:
That's life
Nothing is set
You better not bet that it's always sugar and honey

Life
Is what it is
You better not miss what it takes to make your life sunny

That's life
That's what you get
You better not bet that it's always coming up roses

Life
Give it a chance
Get up to dance and romance before the book closes

About Audio Quality
We did extensive listening tests to choose file formats that come very close to CD quality and can get played back on almost any device like your computer, your smart phone, your iPad or your MP3 player. As you might know there is always a trade-off between file size and sound quality when it comes to file compression. We decided to go for quality rather than for file size because modern computers and other devices usually have more than enough space for audio files.

Our File Formats

At last we decided to provide our music in 2 different formats: MP3 (128 kbit/s) and M4A (256 kbit/s)
For those who don’t know, you recognize the file by its ending, the abbreviation after the “.” of the file title. (e.g. title.mp3, title.m4a)
MP3 is the most common audio file. It will work on any MP3 player, iPod, computer and most mobile phones.
M4A is the typical iTunes (Apple) format, which means it works great for iPods and the iTunes players on your computer. We chose the new “iTunes+ (plus)” quality.

In both formats we could hardly hear any difference to the original master but the M4A is technically better. The MP3 format on the other hand is the most compatible and also very close to the original quality.

Format Conversion

If, for some reason, you need a different format, you can either write us or use a program to convert it (just put “ needed format -converter” in your search engine). There are a lot of free programs that will do the job nicely. However, when you convert you should prefer the M4A file as source file because it is technically better and also has a higher streaming rate than the MP3.

As long as you’re using regular equipment and operating systems you should be fine with those two formats. If you are working on an Apple computer or use iTunes as your audio player though we would generally suggest you to use the M4A files.
