Every year in February I try to think of new things that I can discuss around the theme of love because let’s not be ignorant, it is that month AND it is a leap year – that’s meant to be special right?! Last year we celebrated the fact that the best things comes in twos anf looked at the word of Twoprov (not as couples but the way the comedy format is stealing and owning the stage), we have also looked at the comedy film and comedy as a whole! This year we head to the world of music.
Some of the songs I love are not necessarily my favourite songs, instead I find this is a sort of completely different topic all on it’s own. A song that I really love must do a few things to me – firstly make me smile because of the experience of listening to it whilst also making me feel a lump in my throat. All of these songs that I talk about over the next 29 days are songs I really do love and adore and I think their music construction, lyrics and song as a whole are wonderful.
At the start of this paragraph I said that these songs may not be my favourites – well that is true, whilst some may be ones that are, there are ones that are not but that does not mean I truly respect them as songs and these songs make me happy and sad at the same time I know they are in a completely different category and that is what the difference is.
Day 4 – The Kill, 30 Seconds To Mars
Why This song?
Words cannot describe how much I love this song, it is so unique, it is so amazing in it’s music structure and no-one can sing like Jared Leto. From the start to finish, this song is just one I love to listen to, it is so powerful you can feel the emotion in it and it just gets me everytime. Also as a video editor I adore the music video both the short and longer version – there is always so much to look out for.
Why do you love this song?
Jared Letos voice, the guitar melody that intertwines in and out – need I say more? I have so much love for this song, I remember the first time I heard this song, it was like no other and it stood out by a mile. Jared has such a powerful voice and when he hits those high notes in the chorus – wow just brings a lump to your throat. A song you need to play loud.
