Eduardo Noya: Versailles (Now and Forever I'm Your King)
Eduardo Noya – "Versailles:" One of the most riveting serials on TV is the $30-million Franco-Canadian historical production Versailles, about Louis X1V and his court in a district that then was outside of Paris. The opening music is haunting, in much the same fashion as Ennio Morricone’s film scores remains so today. Versailles' music info is buried in the credits and it takes quite a bit of searching about on the Internet to find out who the composer is. Surprise, surprise - it’s Montréaler Eduardo Noya, one-half of the electro-beat experimental duo NOIA (with Ashley Long). More searches have failed to find anyplace where this song can be found, but listen closely below (starting at 1:23) and if you can, catch the series. The muffled lyric embedded is as follows:
“I was the king of my own land, Facing tempests of dust, I'll fight until the end. Creatures of my dreams raise up and dance with me. Now and forever I'm your king."
