Call me when you’re sober.
How many times have you wanted to say that to someone?
This is one of my ‘songs I like, but you might not have heard’.
I could have chosen any Evanescence track. I have enjoyed them since their first album ‘Fallen’ in 2003, though they were formed as far back as 1995. Delightfully gothic, and led by Amy Lee’s powerful and emotional vocals and piano they are one of my bands of choice when all I want to do is put on headphones, turn up the volume, and feel dark.
They are not all driving guitars and pounding rhythm. Tracks like Good Enough are haunting and beautiful.
I have chosen ‘Call me when you’re sober’ (from the album The Open Door) because the sentiment might resonate with some readers. And partly because it is one of their more accessible songs. They are not to everyone’s taste, but I hope you enjoy.
Oh, and play it loud.
