Twisted Nerve

So lately, I have been obsessed with the show American Horror Story. I mean, I have always been, but more than usual lately. Anyways, in the first season, there is a song called Twisted Nerve by Bernard Herrmann. It's not typically a song I would listen to, but it's haunting melody is so taunting that it makes you want to listen to it. This song doesn't actually have any lyrics, but it has a rather catchy whistling tone. It is an older song, which is one of the reasons why it is not typically a song I would listen to, but it's so hauntingly beautiful that it's to irresistible. This kind of song is a song that you would associate with and orchestra or music of that genre. It is not a song that you would find playing on any of today's radios. Most people today probably can not say that they do know the song. I highly recommend this song to everyone who has the slightest interest in hauntingly beautiful music.

This is Gospel

Recently, and by recently I mean in the past hour, I have been listening to Panic! At The Disco's song "This is Gospel" the piano version. I, an in the process of learning to play the piano person, am absolutely in love with this song. The song shows the emotions that singer, Brendon Urie, outputs through is loud vocals and strong piano playing. The song itself does have two different versions, however, the piano version is my personal favorite. You can just feel the song run through your skin and it almost brings tears to your eyes. The song is often thought as Brendon's final thoughts on Ryan Ross and Jon Walker leaving the band. It is often said throughout the song, "If you love me, let me go." I take this as Brendon telling Ryan and Jon that he loves them as friends but is willing to let them go on and do things as they please. I personally believe that this song is a song that represents the death of someone. If you love someone, you should keep their memory with you, but should let them go. They will still be with you in your own way.

Death of a Bachelor

This week, I have been listening to the song,"Death of a Bachelor," by Panic! At The Disco. This song was inspired by the one and only Frank Sinatra. The song is very well written and has a great beat to it. It flows really nicely, and singing it is very pleasant. It has a very jazzy feel to it, and it makes you think of the 1940's Vegas Strip. Many people would have little to no trouble trying to sing or recreate the song. My mother actually thought that I was singing church music once while I was singing the song. The name of the song actually it was inspired the band to call their new album, "Death of a Bachelor." In the video for this song, lead singer, Brendon Urie, is set in a reception area of a hotel, kind of like how most venues are. Singer Urie had set the song on Frank Sinatra and his own wife, Sarah Orzechowski.
