It’s been 10 years since Morgan Page released one of his most memorable tracks, “The Longest Road”. Whether it’s the original or one of the many remixes; the stunning sounds of Lissie and catchy lyrics were what really made this track shine. In a recent Instagram post, Morgan Page described how the lyrics for the track were designed. “The Longest Road began as a concept about the desert. Lissie and I did a “stream-of-consciousness” session, where I'd loop an instrumental for 15 minutes and leave the room for a coffee break while she would sing whatever came to mind.”

Lyric Concept: The Longest Road began as a concept about the desert. Lissie and I did a "stream-of-consciousness" session, where I'd loop an instrumental for 15 minutes and leave the room for a coffee break while she would sing whatever came to mind. We pieced together fragments of ideas and eventually came upon the key phrase "The Longest Road," painting a landscape with phrases like "pastel trailer park, stars so bright to hide the dark." It's a song about a relationship that doesn't work out, but the desert provides the metaphor. The landscape is the vehicle that carries the concept forward. The actual Longest Road is the 62 freeway that passes through Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree. It's such a desolate landscape that it seemed the perfect way to describe a relationship that didn't take root and establish a lasting foundation. These are the original lyrics sheets. 🎶
There have been countless remixes of “The Longest Road” over these 10 years, all of which Morgan Page has proudly supported. “Remixes are all about giving a song new life,” Page states in a recent Facebook post, “I love licensing these mixes and making them legit.”
