It’s said when a door closes another one will open. I closed a door on Saturday. Yesterday some doors seemed to open. That was an unexpected and unrelated change in life. Another person I’ve known for a while has stepped forth to join the crew for my library. And on Sunday, going back an additional day, another long time friend may have an option to help my library mushroom into a very large library in a matter of days. But the jury is out on that right now.
Today is going to be a day of putting some more music into the finishing stages. I’ve still got a bunch of songs that I had started some time ago. I have one that is finished, I’m still working on the mix and I’m getting remixes done by some friends as well. I do plan on finishing the mix on it today. Then I plan on moving on to putting words and melody to another one of the over 40 songs I’ve got to finish for my next release.
With no further ado, let’s get to today’s tune: Sweet Sacrifice by Evanescence. I have to roll with it because of the fact that i made a sacrifice and it’s now turning into something sweet or at least it appears to be. Though it’s not the same sort of sacrifice that Amy is singing about in this song. But the title appears to fit what I’m going thru.
Amy is no slouch of a singer. In fact, I’d have to say she’s got one of the more amazing voices I’ve heard in a few years. Especially for her style. I’ve had the pleasure of working with another vocalist Daniella Gaha who is astounding in her own right.
I personally love her vocal acrobatics. What kind of training goes into that type of skill? Of course the production is top notch, but if the songs aren’t there, the production can’t save it. I realize Amy is singing about soured relationships, yet I’m twisting the title to fit my will. What do you sacrifice? Why? Why do you feel it’s a sacrifice? Would this song be your soundtrack for it? I think so.
