Some songs just stick with you the very first time you hear them, and this was one of those songs for me. I’m not a huge acoustics fan, but this rendition of a song that’s also very good in its original version is one I keep coming back to time and time again.
Anytime I get in a bad mood it really helps to listen to this track. It’s a very cathartic experience for me. I think it’s the fantastic combination of total mayhem and the melodic, calming, piano part towards the end. Amazing songwriting and great execution equals one happy me!
I wanted something appropriate seeing as today is Valentine’s Day, and immediately thought of this track which I listen to on a regular basis. It has a lot of great qualities, and I definitely consider it one of the greatest tracks ever recorded.
I can readily admit–as one might have noticed–that I’m a sucker for long bombastic tracks that keeps building up as it progresses.
Apart from music, another big interest of mine is movies. Naturally, music in movies is also something I’m very much into. I have a few favorite composers, one being Danny Elfman (I know, shocking, right!?). Of all the music mr. Elfman has composed, Alice’s Theme from Alice in Wonderland is one of the tracks I consider to be absolutely amazing.
