Since yesterday was the 10th year anniversary of Evanescence’s debut album Fallen, (and since I wasn’t able to post this yesterday) I thought I would post the very debut single off the album, and to this day, the most famous song by the band of all times, and my favorite song. Here is Bring Me To Life by Evanescence.

Congratulations, world, on the World Evanescence Day (yesterday, March 4th), and congratulations to Evanescence for a fantastically successful album and 10 great years with the amazing sound of it.

And also, here is the complete album for you as well, since I’m such a nice person!

Tracklist:

  • Going Under
  • Bring Me To Life
  • Everybody’s Fool
  • My Immortal
  • Haunted
  • Tourniquet
  • Imaginary
  • Taking Over Me
  • Hello
  • My Last Breath
  • Whisper
  • My Immortal (Band Version)

“Wake me up inside
Wake me up inside
Call my name and save me from the dark
Bid my blood to run before I come undone
Save me from the nothing I’ve become
Bring me to life”
(Bring Me To Life – Evanescence)

“Frozen inside without your touch, without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead”
(Bring Me To Life – Evanescence)

1 year!

As it is my 1-year anniversary of this blog (at least for a couple of minutes more), I decided to do a poll on how things have been up to now. I want to know what’s been good, what you liked, what you want more of, maybe some suggestions to what I should write about – what you want my opinion on. Maybe also you could say something about what I can do better (except for the fact that I need to write more often!). Said in an easier way: I want to know everything!
So, this poll is about what you want more of on this blog, and I have made it possible to click on more than one alternative (just for the record).

I hope you will vote, so I get a clue on how things are. You can also comment if there are other things that I have forgotten about, or if you want to say something about the other things I mentioned before that I would like to know of you.
– Thank you!

Still can’t find what keeps me here”

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”

Hello there! Did you think I’d forgotten all about you, or what?
I really didn’t, but busy days with homework and a little social life, plus no internet connection equals no blogging. I’m terribly sorry, though. But now I’m back again, sadly to say, not for good. What I’m gonna do, is to enforce what I like to call “Blogging Weekends”. I will do everything I can to be a regular blogger, but I’ll have to slow down a bit, so it won’t ruin my homework efficiency. I will blog all weekend, Fridays through Sundays, and whenever I find the time, I will write a little something in between.
Hope I don’t lose any readers, and maybe instead gain one or two! (Just hope my parents won’t get too upset with me sitting all weekend by the computer, haha!)

Evanescence – Haunted

New day, new song – in a hurry! I don’t have much time before I leave to go to my cabin, so this won’t be the best.
Well, today’s song is Haunted by Evanescence. It was first published on their album “Fallen” in 2003.
If you want the lyrics, press here.

This is not the Fallen version on the video, but if you search for it on youtube, you will see that it’s not so different. I like both versions, and I love the movie “Van Helsing”, which is the movie you see clips from in the music video, so I think it’s a great combination.
It will definitely hold just fine since they didn’t make a real music video for this song.

(Here’s the album version):

Well, I will start by saying, it really haunts you. It’s captivating, that’s what it is! The solo can be repeated over and over and over again. It makes me want to learn how to play like that, and I’ve never been interested in playing, so that says it all.
It’s so great that it has an actual story to it too, so that you know what the lyrics means.

Here is an insert from the “story”:

“A little girl around 8 or 9 in a little white Easter dress is walking down a neighborhood street bouncing a little red ball. As she approaches an obviously deserted large house with a sinister demeanor, her attention moves from the ball to the house. Not paying attention to her bouncing, the ball hits the curb and ricochets toward the house. As she chases the little red ball toward the house, the ball picks up unnatural momentum and bounces right into the huge gaping front door. “

The rest of the story you will find here.
