Welcome to this Months feature! Now, January is a time when it is the start of something new and everything fresh! With that means that people are always on the lookout for new music! Well, this feature may not bring you a lot of new music but it will welcome you into my world! Music is a huge part of my life – if i am not listening to it, i am playing my guitar or keyboard or even writing a post for this site (Off The Record).
So to start off 2018 I wanted to write about a topic I love and I came across this daily challenge so I thought why not turn it into an article! So here we go! Lets start with the first in this monthly feature – Lost in Music (You probably have that song stuck in your head now its by Sister Sledge)
A Song That Makes You Cry: End of An Era – Marianas Trench
I am not really someone who cries at music however when a song is such very well and passionately it can make me feel emotional and feel the power behind the song. This was a song that when I first heard it I wasn’t sure what to make of it but then I heard it live and heard the power behind it that it changed something in me.
There was a mini documentary that went along with the album that went behind the scenes of making it and what the stories are about on the tracks. A lot of the album is about heartache and this is the last track on the album and the thing I love about this song is the power and fantastic ending it is to the track.
The thing about Josh Ramsey is that he knows how to write a great song and he has a very powerful voice to really create the high notes. This song has so much passion behind it that when you listen to the whole album and listen to the words in depth its really sad and always brings a tear to my eye, metaphorically.
