Wonderful Song by The Lemmings...Outstanding Vocal & Instrumentation...LISTEN:)
Time and time again I find that synchronicity comes along and unexpectedly connects me to some part of my history, my past. It's almost as if it has been written into a musical score for my life. Well, I guess things are written in the Big Book. We just never seem to give it much, if any thought until it bangs the drum. Tonight was such an occasion when I finally scheduled some time to come and have a listen to The Lemmings and found that it would take me unexpectedly on a musical and synchronous path half way around the world to South Africa where The Lemmings call home. They had left a message such a long time ago here at my station to come and have a listen that I'm sure they also long ago gave up on hearing from me. Well, I'm a living example of never say never. In any event, you can read the message that they left in my Shout box, but I can save you some time. It read: "Every word a picture, every song a journey." They also said I would love The Lemmings. Well, let me tell you, that is an understatement. From song to song on their page the music melted like butter and flowed like honey through all of my senses ... soft, sweet, gentle and warm ... beautiful in every sense of the word. And those vocals by Abri van Straten - sultry, seductive, and entrancing, and heaven help me Abri, I had to stop closing my eyes and seeing Chris Rea here, but I hope you take that as a compliment because it really is, and that is not taking anything away from your amazing talent. Speaking of talent, there is no shortage here with Warren, Ludwig and Brian combining with Abri making awesome beautiful music. The songwriting in these lyrics takes my breath away, lifts me up and moves me to that perfect land of Lemuria that The Lemmings describe on their MySpace web site. "Rain" - the song and the video is absolutely beautiful ... yes, every word a picture, and yes, the song was a journey ... Legendary in my mind.
