Midnight to Monaco – One way ticket (new video)

Midnight to Monaco is an American musical duo comprised of Canadian singer Ricky Ducati and LA-based producer Donnie Sloan.
Formed in 2012, the band released their debut single “One in a million” last spring. Now they return with a brand new, summery single called “One way ticket.”
The music video, directed by Nicolas Randall (Daft Punk, Lady Sovereign), takes us on a wonderful journey through the 60s and 70s.
Speaking on the track and video, Donnie says: “I originally wrote the music as an idea for Empire of the Sun, another group I work with, complete with acoustic guitars and synthesizers, but when Ricky sang on the track, it really came alive and perfectly lent itself to the ’50s and ’60s doo-wop sound we’re inspired by. So much so, that the final version features backing vocals from Matt Jardine, the son of original Beach Boy Al Jardine. It’s an ode to Annie, the dream girl that never actually turns up, and perhaps only exists in your imagination.”

Lyrics:

I’m not ashamed
I’m not afraid
My list of regrets hasn’t filled my brain
Whats your destination? Won’t you come meet me tonight?

Just get on a plane or get on a train
drive through the night and just let me explain
Believe me i’m not asking, I’mma telling you what’s right

Cause’ i’ll wait at the station
wait at the quay
I’ll wait in the sun in the 40 degrees
don’t you take forever
don’t you forget about me, about me

Annie come on over
We can just pretend
Get a one way ticket
California end
Don’t miss understand me, I’m not telling you a lie
Get a one way ticket, comeback don’t say goodbye

Come back Don’t goodbye
Come back Don’t goodbye
Come back Don’t goodbye
Don’t miss understand me, I’m not telling you a lie
Get a one way ticket
Come back Don’t goodbye

So set your sails, go coast to coast
Go where the winds will blow most
Sooner or later, you’ll be at the borderline

‘Cos i’ll wait at the station
wait at the quay

I’ll wait for the aeroplane at terminal 3
don’t you take forever
don’t you forget about me, about me

Annie come on over
We can just pretend
Get a one way ticket
California end
Don’t miss understand me, I’m not telling you a lie
Get a one way ticket, comeback don’t say goodbye

Annie come on over
We can just pretend
Get a one way ticket
California end
Don’t miss understand me, I’m not telling you a lie
Get a one way ticket, comeback don’t say goodbye

Annie come on over
I need you tonight,I need you tonight

Annie come on over
I need you tonight,I need you tonight

Annie come on over
I need you tonight,I need you tonight
