It’s been quite some time since I heard a song that did not sound like a commercial one. A song that went straight to my heart and that I could not take out of my mind. When I was much much younger, back in my twenties, then I was up with all the hits and all the new artists in the musical world. Currently, I can say that I don’t know anything about the music, except for the eighties’ and nineties’ hits.
Once in a way I would hear the name of a new song I like, but for some reason I would not remember it even if I tried. That’s part of life. When you grow, you have other things to deal and worry about. Not too much time left for leisure.
Today, I came back home from Chicago. On my return flight, I was too tired to watch a movie and I decided to listen to some music. Since I don’t know any of the artists’ or bands’ names displayed on the screen in front of me, I randomly chose one, hoping it would help me sleep. I selected Hozier and played the whole album.
It didn't help me to sleep! Actually it did the opposite. It woke up all my senses. My mind and heart were delighted with the sound of his voice and not only!. Everything was simply amazing. I was blown away by the wide range of his voice, the beauty of the lyrics and the instrumental part. I don’t think I have listen to something as beautiful as this album in the past twenty years. Yes, it’s a bit dark, but it’s phenomenal. It was just the type of darkness that I needed to move on, forget about my bitter love story.
On my way home from the airport I had to stop and pick up the Door awnings Longueuil. While I was driving, I turned on the radio. Guess what was playing on my favorite station? Hozier. It was their song called “Arsonist’s Lullaby”. What were the chances to turn on the radio and listen to that song when I was just thinking about it? That coincidence made me feel some goosebumps on my arms.
After the song was done, I knew that I had to buy their album and have it downloaded it either on my phone or my laptop. I was enjoying too much. I was anxious to talk to my friend Paula about it. I was sure that she would love Hozier as well.
