How's it going my gumdrops? Are you ready for this Memorial Day Weekend? So far, I have nothing planned. Unless blogging and sleeping in COUNT as "plans"?
Hopefully, no self-serving opportunists decide to invite themselves over for a free meal. After this chaotic week, they are the last people I need or want to see.
Ever have those types of holidays, that make you dread uninvited "guests"? Some people simply love to impose themselves on others because they believe the sun, moon, and stars revolve around them.
Speaking of blogging, I had the hardest time deciding what to share for today. I wasn't sure if I wanted to share a patriotic or anti-war song for Memorial Day Weekend, or to share another creepy song.
Then, I stumbled upon Medwyn Goodall's "Behold The Darkness." It instantly gave me the creeps, which is all the more reason to share "Behold The Darkness." Listening to the song sounds like it would be a part of a score to a Horror TV show or a movie.
In fact, I imagine Goodall's "Behold The Darkness" being used for a show or movie comprised of vampires and werewolves. It has that type of tone. The more I think about the song, it would be perfect for a Vampire TV Drama.
To explain a little more about Medwyn Goodall, he is a New Age Music composer originally from Yorkshire, England. He currently lives with his wife, Wendy in Cornwall, England.
At 10 years old, this man taught himself how to play the guitar and noticed, that he had the ability to learn how to play musical instruments very quickly.
By the time Medwyn Goodall became a teenager, he started composing his own songs. Soon, Goodall earned local notoriety with his band, Trax. Years later, he learned how to play over 20 instruments. These instruments include the mandolin, piano, drums, harp, flute, glockenspiel, panpipes, vibraphone, and a synthesizer.
At 26 years old, Medwyn Goodall released his debut album. Today he has released over 75 albums. You cannot say this composer is untalented and is never busy.
Earlier this morning, I visited 1 of Goodall's websites and left a message for him on his Guestbook page. I informed the composer, that I would be sharing a song of his today for my latest Song Saturday blog. Hopefully, Goodall sees my message, reads it, and responds.
Considering how busy this New Age Instrumental Music composer is, he is probably feverishly composing his next albums. I'm very curious about how Medwyn Goodall manages to find the time to compose music.
There are only so many hours within a day.
When you are listening to Medwyn Goodall's "Behold The Darkness," I encourage you to sit, embrace, and absorb the sound of this composition. Also, pay CLOSE attention to the unofficial music video below.
Does the overall tone of "Behold The Darkness" give you an eerie feeling?
Listening to this song and watching this unofficial music video makes me think about the Gothic Horror Soap Opera, Dark Shadows, Grimm, and that evil character, Dio Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
Patrick Seitz voicing Dio in English makes the villain sound just as evil as the way he is written. That reminds me, Toonami better hurry up and air JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's 2nd season because the block is boring with the exception of Tokyo Ghoul airing.
Anyway, here is Medwyn Goodall's "Behold The Darkness" for today's Song Saturday.
