Throwback Thursday- SoulDecision ‘Faded’
‘Faded’ is the debut single by Canadian boy band soulDecision. The song was written by Adam Stillman, who described the song as “being intoxicated and letting one’s object of affection know how you feel.” The song was very successful, reaching #1 in Canada and being nominated for song of the year at 2001 Juno Awards.
The song has three versions: one with the beginning lyrics “When I get you all alone, I’m gonna take off all your clothes”; an edited version with “When I get you all alone, I’m gonna move in nice and close”; and a third version featuring a verse by rapper Thrust.
The video was shot in Vancouver in an apartment building having various rooms. The video was released in 1999 in Canada and then internationally in 2000. The video reached the #4 spot on MTV‘s TRL and #5 on MuchMusic Countdown.
