Evanescence – Whisper

Hello there! Lost my internet connection last night before I got the chance to publish the post. Anyways, here it is. 
Today’s song is Whisper by Evanescence. It was published on the album “Fallen” in 2003. The lyrics you can read here.  
I’ve been wanting to write about Whisper for such a long time, but then I got other ideas for new posts, so it has just been postponed over and over again and it has slipped my mind. But now is the time, I give you now, “Whisper” by Evanescence!

It’s such an epic song! I simply just love the playing, and the choir is awesome. It really gives the song an extra push. The guitar intro rocks, and so does the solo too. The lyrics are hauntingly dark, and that makes the song even more epic. It really fills my body with a pleasant feeling. Amy’s vocals are extraordinary, as usual, I’d say. I think, as I may have said before, violins and rock fits greatly together, so the violins in the bridge from the refrain to solo are perfect. The soft piano playing in the background has a nice melody, and it’s so great to be able to listen to the song over and over again and discover new elements in the song that makes it better. 
This song has several different versions, where in one of them with a sample intro from “O Verona”, and in another one you can hear an extract from the movie “My World Dies Screaming”, also known as “Terror in the Haunted House”. (Here is the O Verona Version if you want to listen).
The Latin words in the end are repeated several times, “Servatis a periculum, servatis a maleficum” means “Save us from danger, save us from evil”. Love the fact that they actually used Latin in the song, makes it special. 

“I’m frightened by what I see
But somehow I know
That there’s much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be blinded by tears”
(Whisper – Evanescence)

Update

Hi! Terribly sorry to have been gone for such a long time. I have missed writing, but I needed to concentrate on my homework for some time. I don’t know yet if I will be back for good just yet, but I will try.

I have checked the voting, and it seems that a lot of my readers would like me to write about Eminem, and some also about Linkin Park, and I got a comment stuffed with suggestions for other artists and songs to write about. I will do so, but since it’s my first day back, I thought I should write about a song that means a bit more to me, just to get back in the game. With that said, I haven’t closed the poll yet, so you can still go and vote for artists, the ones that are in there from before, or suggest new ones, and I will check it out.

I have also discovered some new music that I can’t wait to share with you, so I really hope I get the time to write more.

“Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity 
To seize everything you ever wanted, one moment 
Would you capture it, or just let it slip?”
(Lose Yourself – Eminem)

Visit!

Hey!
I know I haven’t blogged in a really, REALLY long time, and I’m sorry! I have had so much homework, and I still do, so you would have to wait some more before something new gets posted.
But since I’m way too tired to blog now, I will suggest you visit the blog of a friend of mine:
http://listenmusicdaily.blogspot.com/

 

He has a great music taste (okay, it’s a bit similar to mine, so of course I would say that, haha), and writes well.
His last post was on the song “Haunted” by Evanescence, really good!

Enjoy!

“Long lost words whisper slowly to me,
Still can’t find what keeps me here
When all this time I’ve been so hollow inside
I know you’re still there”
(Haunted – Evanescence)

 

 

 

 

 

New artists?

I have thought long about if this blog has enough variety in songs. That is why I created this poll below, in which I ask for suggestions for artists to write a post about. Well, it wouldn’t be about the artist, but a song by the artist. (If you want info on the artist, use Wikipedia, for God’s sake!) You may submit your own answers to this poll, if you’d like. I have just come up with some examples, that I actually may consider writing about if you want me to.
The only rule is, that there is some artists I won’t write about, no matter how badly you want me to. You should know what I’m talking about, and I don’t even want to mention them. This is a blog about the music that I like and love, not what fourteen years-old girls like…
You may also select several of the alternatives, just to have it said.
You can comment on the post if there are some special songs you want me to write about (and make it easier for me, haha)

 

“I hold my breath as this life starts to take its toll
I hide behind a smile as this perfect plan unfolds
But oh, God, I feel I’ve been lied to
Lost all faith in the things I have achieved”
(Away From Me – Evanescence)
