Tyrants in Therapy new Maxi-Single "Once Upon A Time" !!!!!!


The Los Angeles-based Tyrants In Therapy have combined forces with talented Greek DJ/producer Thomas Bainas to create an unforgettable dance record.
'Once Upon A Time" combines classic high energy, Italo disco, and a timeless melody by Beethoven to tell a story of a once in a lifetime love, sung with deliciously aching emotion by Abbe Kanter of the Tyrants.

"The Magical Facebook Odyssey of TIT’s "Once Upon A Time."
            If it weren't for Facebook, The Tyrants in Therapy's newest dance record might never have seen the light of day.
            "Once Upon A Time" is one of our most romantic songs ever, but it never really worked as a record until Thomas Bainas became involved," says Tyrants' lead singer AbbeAbbe.

            Based in part on Beethoven's "Fur Elise, " "Once Upon A Time" was first released in 2009 as a rock song on the Tyrants' High Class Trash cd. But Tyrant Michael was never satisfied with the results.
            "Even though I produced it, "Once Upon A Time" was, for me, a beautiful failure. Despite all my best efforts, it never really gelled as a track. I was disappointed because there was something special about the epic scope of the lyrics, and Abbe's vocal was magnificent." says Tyrant Michael.

            And the song might have languished in obscurity forever except for a chance Facebook meeting with a DJ/producer from the Greek island of Crete.
            In 2012, Thomas Bainas approached the Tyrants on Facebook, and offered to do an Italo Disco remix of "Perfect Love," The Tyrants' newest Hi-NRG dance record.
            "Even though it was already out, I agreed to let Thomas do a remix because I loved the music he was releasing in Europe," Tyrant Michael remembers,  "So we sent him the sound files of Abbe's vocals, and, lo and behold, he transformed "Perfect Love" into an Italo track that blew us away."

            In thanks for his remix efforts, The Tyrants sent Bainas a package of their older cds, including High Class Trash.
            "When I listened to High Class Trash, Bainas recalls, "Once Upon A Time” really stood out, and I said to myself, this a masterpiece that can be reinterpreted with a different approach, without losing the originality that makes it so special."
            And once again, even though the song had already been released, the Tyrants commissioned Bainas to do an Italo version of "Once Upon A Time."

            For Bainas, it was a labor of love that he embarked upon with a passion. "On many nights after DJing, I came home and spent hours searching for sounds, loops, and melodies. I recorded them into the computer with Cubase, using guitar, and synths. Then I mixed wearing my trusty Philips headphones."

            As the arrangements came together, emails with "OUAT" in the subject line were flying between Los Angeles and Crete, with mp3s of the song attached.
            "Thomas sent us works in progress, and we'd email him feedback as well as we could since we don't speak Greek," says Tyrant Michael. "In a few cases, I proposed what I thought were only minor changes, but Thomas would come up with creative solutions that were different, and in many cases better."

            The deeper that Bainas got into TIT's music, the more inspired he became.
             "Music should create positive emotions," he says, "It should be like closing your eyes and entering a wonderful new universe. And if our music motivates you onto the dance-floor, your soul will commune with ours in a magical way. Michael's ideas led me to create musical landscapes to surround Abbe's wonderful voice. Michael and Abbe are 'Artists' in the truest sense. This is what they live for, and what I live for too, so perhaps our connecting online was an act of Fate."

            And though they have yet to meet in person, the collaborators have forged a bond that spans continents and oceans.
            "Thomas's take on "Once Upon A Time" gave me chills the first time I heard it," says AbbeAbbe, "It was new and old, wild and controlled. I never get tired of listening to his "OUAT" club mixes."
            On The Tyrants’ Emotional Coathanger Records, "Once Upon A Time" is available on iTunes , Amazon, etc. and through TIT's website ." 

Once Upon A Time (M. Jaye / A. Kanter / M. Mann)

 Once upon a time there was a girl who left her home to see the World
Little did she know what waited there she didn’t care she had to go
She was so young, and so on fire and her longing hurt so much
Burning with deep desire for what her life was empty of
Once upon a time there was a girl who left her home she had to go

Once upon a time there was a boy, who knew the score but wanted more
Little did he know the Golden Path was just a trap, a rocky shore
He went searching for danger to strange and sacred places
Among the heroes and villains, he searched for fame and treasure
Once upon a time there was a boy who wanted more, went off to war

When I look into your eyes something seems to go right through me
Inside outside upside down love surrounds and whispers to me

Once upon a time a boy, a girl across the sea just chanced to meet
Little did they know what brought them there but just one look and Heaven shook
Without a word he bent to kiss her warm waiting lips, she felt so safe she felt so sure
This was what she has saved herself for
Once upon a time a boy, a girl, two souls complete,
A love so pure

When I look into your eyes I reach to the other side
Of the magical unknown two hearts, one soul coming home
Inside of me when you smile, calm surrounds and whispers to me
This is what is meant to be love has found and set me free.
