Music: October 17 2012

This track was the first one with the new singer after the original singer, Tarja and the band had a … disagreement … about her attitude towards the band. Anette Olzen took over, but she has just recently parted company with the Finnish band as well. There is one member of the band who definitely reminds me of a Viking (Marco) who, when I see him, makes me think of Penny due to her love of all things Viking. I was supposed to be going to see these live in a couple of weeks, but the idea of going to a gig in London on my own scares the crap out of me. Nightwish. Amaranth.

    • They’ve been a favourite of mine for some time. I dedicated one song of theirs to my ex wife haha.

      Did you ever hear what I told you?
      Did you ever read what I wrote you?
      Did you ever listen to what we played?
      Did you ever let in what the world said?
      Did we get this far just to feel your hate?
      Did we play to become only pawns in the game?
      How blind can you be, don’t you see?

      Had it as her ringtone until the divorce came through, then it became “Excuse me sir, your ex-wife is attempting to call you, would like me to contact your lawyer?” 😀

  1. I did listen to those videos as I like Nightwish. My favourite is the poet and the pendulum, just great. I haven’t met many who like them. I should have known about the concert, I live in London.

    • LOL. I was going to put Poet and the Pendulum up at some point, but because of the length, people may get bored with it as it’s over 13 minutes as you know. But the differences in the music remind me Bohemian Rhapsody for the change of tempo

  2. Nightwish 🙂 awesome band .. fantastic clips .. beautiful soul stirring music 🙂 – as is Within Temptation … going on ones own? rather daunting yes … tho to sacrifice seeing them ?? hard decision lol

  3. I hate queues with a passion. Almost psychotically. But here’s a hint. If you’e going to stand in a queue, take a favourite book and read it. If someone comments on the book you may have found a person worth conversation. Awesome video. Not quite the same musically, but I suspect you might dig this – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fEDeyWQqoE

    • That’s a good idea. Although would people be willing to talk to a Star Wars geek 😉

      That music isn’t too bad. Certainly worth more investigation, thanks 🙂

  4. I am going on my own to London for five days – It’s great. I am going from the first of November and coming back in the early hours of November the 6th. I am going to be going to a training course on the Fri, Sat and Sun but I am going up on the Thurs and seeing Wicked by myself and then on the Mon I am going to the Warner Brothers studios to see behind the scenes of Harry Potter. Go and enjoy yourself, you will be fine and if you pass by me in London don’t forget to say hi!

    • Glad you liked them Penny. One of the best things to come out of Finland. I did have to check to see if Finland was Scandinavian first though hehe. Apparently it’s a contested claim. The majority say it isn’t.
