Sometimes you come across with little musical jewels that change your life a bit. The Organ is one of those for me, I hadn’t mentioned this in a long time but there’s a special place in my heart for people who introduced me to music I love. This one came from a special friend from college and then became a lot more personal because one of this band’s favorite songs connected me with someone I love, it’s a very special band for me, it always brings back important feelings and memories, for that I will always be grateful to the one person who decided to show them to me.
It’s so very special because the band is like a shooting star, beautiful, fleeting, so very unique and memorable. Their sound is one of a kind and so many of their songs just make me feel like I’ve known them, loved them and sung them all my life, it’s really something.
This song captures their essence quite nicely, it’s very brief but powerful, really beautiful melodically, harmonically, and in terms of musical textures and color. It brings a special sense of longing which I can’t fully describe, but it also takes me back to a simpler time when everything wasn’t reduced to thinking about life or death, success of failure…
I really like the feeling it brings, like a connection from past feelings which give me comfort and remind me that life isn’t always a struggle for survival or constant fear. I think I’ve started to try to make something positive about the past coming back to the present, trying to turn it into something positive instead of just letting it make me sad.
