Rather long song from a pretty much unknown folk metal group
Something in it just gets me right in the feels. The violin solo and the preceding guitar solo especially
I can't find "And So It Goes" by Roberta Flack, and anyway I much prefer this Cantonese cover version:
Sandy Lam - "The Slight Chill"
A lonely life, traveling on my own
The wind dries my love-lorn troubles
By chance I find myself on the street corner, in the night mist
Feeling as if I've lost the map
always makes me feel melancholy..
But I also love the song. Fucked coming and going
Paula Tsui - Deep in Autumn, I Stood Aloft.
I just love this song. The singer is one of my favorites in the whole wide world. I'm not entirely sure about the history of the song. The melody was written by Janis Ian, but not for herself. The original beneficiary was (I was told) an Australian female singer that I couldn't manage to track down. Then came a Japanese cover version called "Angel of Sadness", and finally, this Hong Kong version, with very delicate, evocative lyrics in Cantonese, penned by lyricist Zheng-Chuan Tang:
Still remembering, in early Spring, in my demureness
I acknowledged in silence
Deep in Autumn, I stood aloft
By the pillow I thought of the past
Still recalling that you have said
Your love will not stay lest your heart be broken
Gazing ahead, about -- the scenery recedes.
Tears mingle with the drizzle.
No more questions: past woes are like rain, like dew
Gently falling, on fields of new harvest
Tumbling along the wind to the wastelands.
Whatever has long gone; yoked hearts now weary and separate
At long last I understood it is all futile
Wind keeps howling, a solitary echo through the late Autumn sky
The willow leaves, witnesses to my love, pile deep
Why I alone is permeated by the fog, the rain?
Even in stripped down dual acoustic format this song is so fucking good.
Although I can only make out about 2/3 of the lyrics, this one still resonates with me quite a bit for some reason:
A bit of backstory for this song- I first heard it as part of the soundtrack for a pretty mediocre anime movie called 'Origin- Spirits of the past'. Her voice gives me the shivers, it's almost like the cry of a bird.
I'm a sucker for a balalaika.
My grandfather was a huge influence on my mother's music preferences, and in turn mine. When he passed away we made a playlist for him to play at his funeral to accompany a slideshow of pictures from his life.
I can't listen to either of these without getting emotional:
(double post, fuck, sorry)
The second theme breaks my heart.
The whole album is absolutely beautiful BTW.
