Elephant – Damien Rice

Damien Rice will change your life. There. I’ve said it.

You think you’ve heard emotion in songs before, you’ve think you’ve heard┬á‘love’ songs sung from every perspective, but you ain’t heard nothing til you’ve heard Damien Rice. His still remains the only concert where I’ve welled up. The pain in his face as he sings every song, like he’s re-living every shitty relationship he’s ever had, would be hard to watch if it wasn’t so enthralling.

This particular song is an early version of a song that appeared on the ‘9’ album, called ‘Elephant’. The MP3 was titled ‘The Blower’s Daughter Pt2′, and other than that, I don’t know much else about it. It’s live, but I don’t know where or when (apart from the fact I obtained it long before ‘9’ came out). It’s like being stroked with a feather, punched in the face, and then stroked with a feather again. But you’re much more wary of the feather the second time round. Just makes you realise the power of song, when you let out the breath you’ve been holding for the last five minutes.
