Have you ever loved a song, and then completely forgotten that it exists?
Edge of Darkness by Eric Clapton and Michael Kamen is one of my favorite songs, and I didn’t even remember it.
Last week I stumbled upon a CD case filled with mix CDs I made in early 2005. Listening to them has been a fun experiencing; I had pretty good taste back then… Only a few songs made me cringe with embarrassment, or wince in disgust. One of the CDs contained Edge of Darkness.
Anyway, Edge of Darkness was scored by Clapton and Kamen as the theme song to a BBC show of the same name. The original recording is alright, but nothing worth blogging about. This orchestrated version is a completely different story. It’s both beautiful and intense. The buildup is magnificent, and then it explodes with raw emotion. Have a listen.
Whatever my mood is, this song amplifies it.
