Oh, Evanescence, you have no idea how excited I was that this showed up on the radio. I love this song so much, Evanescence. Like, seriously love it. I wasn’t really paying much attention to music when this song was popular, but this particular song was on everywhere so I couldn’t help but hear it and I also couldn’t help but be instantly bedazzled. Is this considered goth rock? I don’t know what it is, but that otherworldly voice combined with the guitar plus creepy whispering, gaaaah! So good, Evanescence! As I was listening to it again, I started looking up videos of y’all and reading some of the annotations, but I very quickly stopped myself. I don’t want to know what you’re like in real life. I want to imagine that you exist in some other dimension, luring lost souls with your siren song, imploring them to save you. It might lead to a messy end, I don’t even know, Evanescence, but if this is the last thing one of those doomed folks here, I feel it’s gotta be pretty damn worth it.
Radio 81, side B, track 11: “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence
