Hey There! Now it’s time for my first real post at this blog, and I choose to start this blog with writing about my favourite song, Bring Me To Life by Evanescence. (You can find lyrics here)

(I’m just throwing in the video for reference, so you don’t have to search for yourself, there are so very few who bothers anyway.)
The video is greatly directed, but the quality is poor. I couldn’t find any better, and I’m lazy, so I didn’t bother to look for something that I’ve spent hours looking for earlier. Now I’ll stop bothering you with my random writing and cut to the chase.

I really love this song, and it is one of the most popular Evanescence songs. It is from their first real album, Fallen, which was published in 2003. I love this song because of its meaning. Amy Lee, the vocalist, is telling us to do something with our lives before it’s too late. I think that is a great message, and the way she is getting the message across to us is wonderful.

I love the way the song builds up from the slow start, with beautiful piano and soft vocals, into the rough guitars and strong voice of Amy. The song also features guest vocalist Paul McCoy from 12 Stones. Originally it was intended to be without a male voice, but since it was made the soundtrack of the movie DareDevil, the producers felt it would be more of a hit with some male contribution, since the movie is more of a guy-movie (kind of sexist, if you ask me!).
Anyways, it turned out to be great, but I really like the two demo-versions too, both with awesome guitars instead of the part where they sing “All of this time, I can’t believe I couldn’t see, kept in the dark, but you where there in front of me” and so on… You can listen to the two demo-versions on The Evanescence Reference.

Well, as I will try to do, which I also have done with my other blog, I will finish the post with a quote from a song, and naturally I will quote Bring Me To Life this time. I usually choose something that I can relate to with my own life. Here it goes…

“Save me from the nothing I’ve become”
(Bring Me To Life – Evanescence)


This is my first post at this blog. I’m not going to write anything interesting now, because I rather want to sleep at this hour. I will be writing about my favourite music. Songs of the day, good quotes from song lyrics, facts about my favourite bands, and other news and stuff. I can’t promise I will be super-active on this blog, but I will try my best to keep it up! That’s all for now, I hope for nice comments (no need for haters!)
Good Night, Sleep Tight.
