Song of the week: Nightwish - The Crow, the Owl and the Dove

So I decided to post about my favorite song of the week :)

For this week the song that I listened the most is Nightwish - The Crow, the Owl and the Dove from the "Imaginaerum" album

It's such a beautiful song!! This song is slow and relaxing compared to the other songs in the album  and it makes me imagine being in a fairytale, I love music that can makes me feel that way.

Tuomas Holopainen (Leader of the band) said: “It’s the only song on the album which is written by Marco [Hietala] and it’s a funny thing that the most metal head in the band has the most poppy song on the album.”

He also added  “It’s a fantastic song and it has quite a deep meaning behind it. I love Henry David Thoreau, the author and I read his book ‘Walden’ and that’s where I got the idea for the lyrics for the song.”

I highly recommend to listen to it and then listen to the other songs in the "Imaginaerum" album which are just wonderful!!

    Nightwish is great! <3 ... Tarja and Anette are quite different but that makes them unique and great in their own way. I really enjoy Anette's voice and I think it suits pretty good to the band :)... I'm so excited to see them live in less than two weeks here in SLC :)
