Trocadero - Contact

Contact serves as the theme song for the Chorus TrilogyRed vs. Blue's fourth saga. It was written and performed by Trocadero. The full version of the song is not normally played during webcast episodes, but was played during the Season 11 credits. A more tame variation of "Contact", entitled "Relay", is played as the theme for Season 12. A cover version of the song titled "Contact Redux", featuring guest vocals by Meredith Hagan, was used as the credits theme for Season 13.

LyricsEdit

Contact Edit

We've been here so long
Still I remember
The rainy September

Contact

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I transmitting?
Is anyone listening?

Contact

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I still willing
To foot all this billing?

Contact

We are green and gray
The longness of semper
Still I remember

Contact

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I transmitting?
Is anyone listening?

Contact

Riding on our shiny metal horses
Singing a rider's song
One of us won't be forgotten
The other one's wrong

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I still willing
To foot all this billing?

Contact

When I think of you
Your name's in the sky
Ninety feet high

Contact

Riding on our shiny metal horses
Singing a rider's song
One of us won't be forgotten
The other one's wrong

Contact Redux (feat. Meredith Hagan) Edit

We've been here so long
Still I remember
The rainy September

Contact

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I transmitting?
Is anyone listening?

Contact

We are green and gray
The longness of semper
Still I remember

Contact

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I still willing
To foot all this billing?

Contact

Riding on shiny metal horses
Singing a rider's song
One of us will be forgotten
The other will be wrong

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I transmitting?
Is anyone listening?

Contact

When I think of you
Your name's in the sky
Ninety feet high

Contact

Riding on our shiny metal horses
Singing a rider's song
One of us will be forgotten
The other will be wrong

Riding on our shiny metal horses
Singing a rider's song
One of us will be forgotten
The other will be wrong

Oh two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I still willing
To foot all this billing?

TriviaEdit

  • Originally the song was released as a single after Lost But Not Forgotten aired. Later it was included in Trocadero's album When We're Together.
  • The official release of the song is a different recording from the version played during the credits of Season 11 in Lost But Not Forgotten, specifically it being a different session.
  • When asked about his inspiration for "Contact", Nico replied "The lyrics came from watching a lot of war news stuff from Iraq and connecting it to what was going on in Season 11 -- being lost, far away from loved ones: isolation, fear, basic shitty life."
  • After Miles Luna saw Meredith Hagan's cover of "Contact" on her Tumblr, she was eventually invited to collaborate with Nico Audy-Rowland in what would become "Contact Redux".
  • "Contact Redux" features a number of subtle lyrical changes, but most notably changing One of us won't be forgotten to One of us will be forgotten. Meredith stated in her appearance in The Shizno that she accidentally changed them in her original recording, but given they fit the new somber tone, no one bothered to correct.
