Songfacts®:

  • This is a remix of a 1971 song by the short-lived UK group Colonel Bagshot called "Six Day War." The song is about war and regret, with the refrain, "Tomorrow never comes until it's too late." The video was directed by the Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar-wai, and stars Chang Chen from the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The video uses the song metaphorically, and tells the story of a man trying to destroy all traces of his former love, who has betrayed him. This video was released on DVD as a short film.
  • Two further remixes of the song are found on the 2003 DJ Shadow album The Private Repress: The "Soulwax" remix and the Mos Def remix. The Mos Def version was featured in the movie The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Phone Booth. >>
