As long as the sun is out
The composition brings a timeless message of hope for moments marked by challenges, difficulties, losses, and doubts.
The author is the musician Sérgio Britto (1959), who has already released solo records and is also part of the band “Titãs”, one of the most famous and long-lasting bands in Brazil.
When talking about “As long as the sun is out”, which was among the top 10 songs on Brazilian radio in 2004, Sérgio says that he likes to compose works with a very strong melodic part, and this trait captivated the audience.
Other songs written by the musician are “Epitáfio” (“Epitaph”), “Marvin” (in partnership with Nando Reis), “Homem Primata” (“Primate Man”, in partnership with Marcelo Fromer, Nando Reis, and Ciro Pessoa), “Comida” (“Food”, in partnership with Marcelo Fromer and Arnaldo Antunes) and “Miséria” (“Misery”, in partnership with Arnaldo Antunes and Paulo Miklos).
One more curiosity: one of Sérgio Britto's solo albums released in 2006 is called “Eu sou 300” (“I am 300”). The title is based on a poem written in 1929 by the Brazilian Mário de Andrade. Check out an excerpt below:
“I'm three hundred, I'm three hundred-fifty,
But one day I will finally run into myself...
Let us be patient, short swallows
Only oblivion condenses
Then my soul will serve as a shelter.”
