Mornin' Come (Sun Don't Shine) is a single by Kuboian television personality and singer Ericka Streets. The song, which is a cover of "I Got The..." by Labi Siffre, was used as the charity single for A Vision In Kids in 2005. The song also features vocals from Blade Holter, Andre Hung and Spy Fandel, who are all credited as "Kickstart Hosts", due to them being the four hosts of Kickstart at the time. The song was released as a single on 13th March, 2005.

Mornin' Come (Sun Don't Shine) peaked at number 2 in Kuboia. It reached number 1 on the Karuboia Bubblegum Chart as well as the Kids Top 30 chart in Jetania.

Background

In July 2004, it was reported that Ericka Streets would be releasing a cover of a "classic song" as the charity single for A Vision In Kids in 2005. Originally, Ericka was choosing between covering "Why?" by Bronski Beat, "You Make Loving Fun" by Fleetwood Mac and "I Got The..." by Labi Siffre. In the end, she chose "I Got The...", though the other two songs were included as a B-side for the single. Ericka was originally going to perform the song on her own, though after her colleagues showed interest in collaborating with her, it was decided that all four Kickstart hosts would perform the song, though with Ericka taking the lead role.

The lyrics are near identical to that of the original Labi Siffre version, however, the first part of the song has been completely omitted. Ericka said "I didn’t really like how the original was technically two different songs, and I prefered the second half, so we thought that we should just get rid of the first part of the song altogether."

A day before the song’s official release, on 12th March, all four artists performed the song on Kickstart.

Music video

Although there is technically not a music video for the song, a video which features the clip of the group performing the song on Kickstart with the official audio replacing the clip’s audio was premiered on Nick Go! on 15th March, 2005, and has since been used by other music channels worldwide.
