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 then outside of Paris.

The opening music is haunting, in much the same fashion as Ennio Morricone’s film scores remain so today. Versailles' music info is buried in the credits and it takes quite a bit of searching 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). The track is performed by French electro-pop act M83 More searches have failed to find anyplace where this song can be purchased, but listen closely below (starting at 1:23). 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."
