I’ve been on a funny kick of revisiting music lately, music I used to overplay on my MP3 player till I grew tired of it. Its fun revisiting songs that made me feel certain emotions or brought my book’s scenes to life. Today I decided to revisit a long time favorite YouTuber and musician of mine, Lindsey Stirling.
Lindsey Stirling has come a very long way in her musician’s career and I’ve loved every moment that I’ve followed her: She’s quirky but genuine and her violin makes awesome dubstep even more awesome. 🙂 I know many of you are also fans, so I thought I share my revisiting journey with you. 🙂 These aren’t in order, though, I just can’t pick a favorite. 😉
Electric Daisy Violin
I love the vocal track in this song, along with the upbeat tempo and melody. I listened to this on repeat a lot because I couldn’t get enough of it way back in 2011. 😀 A true classic to me!
Song of the Caged Bird
This song fights really hard to be my most favorite of Lindsey’s songs. The violin’s melody has always provoked a very strong sense of sadness and longing that clicked with my heart on the first listen. Plus the beat of this song is incredibly on point.
Beyond the Veil
Wow, ok, I remember hearing this for the first time last year and just being blown away. Not only is the song completely captivating, but music video is easily one of my all time favorites my her. So incredibly beautiful!
This song takes me on mental adventures, to put it briefly. I feel like I could fly when I hear the violin’s cry and rhythm on the percussion. No wonder she can take so many flying leaps to her song. ❤
And I can’t end without her gorgeous, heart-gripping song “Shatter Me”. Lzzy Hale sings Lindsey’s lyrics with a raw intensity of power; I often felt like she took my voice from my throat and screamed in pain for me. This will always stay one of my favorite songs, even if I don’t listen to it all the time like I used to. 🙂
Are you a Lindsey Stirling fan?! Which of her songs are your favorite (I won’t ask you to pick just one; that’s impossible, isn’t it)?
