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 and 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 28 – The Sacrament, H.I.M
Why This song?
The piano melody – I have no other reason why I fell in love with this song. The piano introduction at the beginning is beautiful and it is one of the reasons I got into H.I.M in the first place. I can’t remember how I cam across this or Love Metal but I really like their music. I spent a lot of time as a teen learning how to play this on the keyboard as it is one of my favourite pieces of piano music.
Why do you love this song?
It is just so unique, the way the piano introduces this gothic song, the lyrics are poetic, dark and are melodic. Every element of this song is wonderful and it really highlights just how amazing this band were. Also lets not forget the heartagram.
