That doesn't make it good, of course. But it at least was better than my average early song. I think what made it an improvement over the others was it was my first truly coherent song: I had a melody, a bassline, and a plan for what I wanted to accomplish. The melody was a simple 5-note sequence on a brass sample. It was a bit odd-sounding, but I figured I could make it work. I then put together a bassline and constructed the song from there.
I don't recall getting the samples from a specific song, so I think at this point I had figured out how to extract samples piecemeal. The "let the bass quick" vocal was from a song by Subliminal, but I don't remember the name of it. Incidentally, I thought it was funny to have a vocal saying "bass" to be played at a super high frequency. In retrospect, I probably should have left that out. The guitar sample I would eventually re-use in a lot of my other early songs, it was my guitar sample of choice for a while.
My goal with this was to transition from one style to another: from techno, to rock, to orchestral. I think the first two were okay, but the orchestral part was the weakest.
Like most of my early songs, I wrote this sometime in May or June of 1996.
About the title: In my chemistry class, our teacher (Mr. Kistler) liked to teach us new vocabulary words. "Segue" was one of them, and as I wrote this song about transitioning from one style to another, I decided that was an appropriate title to use. - arcturus
