Bp's Song of the Week #87: Katrina Elam "No End in Sight"  


Katrina Elam “No End in Sight”

“There’s a melody in my head and I ain’t stopped humming it since I saw your face…”

That reminds me of: “I’ve just seen a face I can’t forget the time and place where we just met…” – granted this song isn’t on the level of the Fab Four, but from the first downbeat it has a driving rhythm that is undeniably a middle-of-the-summer-windows-down song. The guitar and percussion get the groove started building up to the anthemic, sing-along chorus and an uplifting lyrical theme, “how high is the sky, how long is time, with you is how I’m spending mine, like there is no end in sight…”

When I first heard this track I fell in love with the driving beat and the vocal: that gorgeous soaring chorus. Then when I saw the video, I was hooked. It reminded me of Glass Tiger’s “I Will be There” and Marillion’s “Easter” – the rolling landscape, circling cameras, singing on a cliff edge – you can’t lose. It was perfectly suited to the soaring feeling of the song. The scenery was beautiful and Katrina was equally as such.

Sadly the label was in turmoil when the 2nd album was being worked on and it never materialized (I think there’s more drama to it, but que importa – this is about this song). And it says something that I still love listening to this track 5 years after it was released. And she co-wrote it which is even better.
