BLACKMORE’S NIGHT – The 8th studio album, Dancer and the Moon, from Blackmore’s Night, was released on June 11th in North America, on Frontiers Records. The Folk Rock of Blackmore’s Night carries both a Renaissance and Celtic sound; I truly find Blackmore’s Night to be a wonderfully magical band!

Blackmore’s Night are led by (core/founding members) the legendary Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night. The Folk Rock that they have written and performed together over the years is deliciously unique; with their new album Dancer and the Moon justifying my every word!

Listen to and watch below, the official music video for the title track from Dancer and the Moon; the musical brilliance coupled with the beautifully captivating voice of Candice Night is to be savored! Metal be thy name!

Without Warning, This Song Starts Playing In My Head: Melanie – “Brand New Key”

Posted in classic rock, folk music, folk rock, metal odyssey, Music, rock and roll, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on July 27, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Do you ever have those days, where a song starts playing in your head and you absolutely, positively, don’t know why? It happens to me all the time, therefore I’m quite used to it. 99% of the time, the song that invades my brain is Metal or at least one from the many Rock genres. Today was different though. Real different. This was a Folk Pop song going all the way back to 1971. The artist? Melanie. The song? Brand New Key. Whoa. Um, whoa again.

I do remember this song quite well however, while growing up as a very young lad back in those early 1970’s. When Brand New Key was released, I was only five years old. Metal be thy name. While this reminder of my childhood days played out in my head today, I could vividly remember the smile it brought to my mothers face all those years ago. My mother used to sing along to Brand New Key while driving the car, God rest her soul. Hearing and seeing her so joyful from this song, made me feel like everything around me was happy, safe and sound. My sister used to sing along to this song as well, as it played on AM radio. I believe I sang along too… or tried to.

What prompted Brand New Key to play out in my head today? I just don’t know. I can’t explain it. The one thing I do like about having this vintage song popping into my head, is the reminder of easier and innocent days of being just a child and singing along with my mother and sister. Reflecting on a simple moment in time. Happy memories, especially when they are triggered by a song… are truly priceless. I’ll never underestimate the magic powers of music.

Quick Facts About Brand New Key:

God Bless My Mother and Sister In Heaven.
