I could dedicate an entire post to why I'm talking about this one today instead of months ago. To keep it simple, the song will sound better or worse depending on your mood. I loved it the first time, then I heard it a few hours later and the impact was completely different.
Even though I know what to expect from the song, what it does to me has been different just about every time since the first listen. It's pretty hard for me to write about something that confuses me, but I think I've finally got it down.
You know what? Scratch that. All I can tell you is if you enjoy it now, listen to it again later. It's refreshing in an odd way. Like hearing Jim Morrison on a spiritual journey.
Yeah.. Give it a listen.
I'm not sure what you guys will make of it. I'm sure not everyone will be in love with it, but I'm pretty sure there'll be a select few who really enjoy it.
The lyrics are up for interpretation. It won't take much to know it's about a relationship, but exactly how the story plays out is an interesting puzzle you could try to figure out. And the music complements the mood just right, real easy to get lost in.
If the song isn't enough, get yourself the album: Into the Labyrinth.
The album had a pretty similar impact for me, just a bit more versatile than the single song. Upbeat or slow, male or female vocals (the greatness of a duo!) and different instruments. When your limitation is 'World', there isn't really much of a limit.
It's an odd form of relaxing, a lot of people won't get it and I don't blame them. I will say that it's a special listen, though. An hour of interesting songs that are difficult to categorize. That's part of what does it for me.
I wouldn't have given them more than a few minutes listen if not for Melanie. So you can all thank her (again) at her blog full of delicious food (and occasional cocktails). And maybe make some delicious food while you're at it, listening to some Dead Can Dance.
