Song Beneath the Song

Everytime I drive, especially long drives like going back home to Pangasinan, I love listening to this song. It is entitle "Song Beneath the Song" by Maria Taylor. It was an OST of Grey's Anatomy but I don't know what season of the show it was being used. Another reason why I like this song is because "detachment" which is one of my favorite words is in the lyrics (interesting detachment? very interesting...).

Maria Taylor's voice is very unique, kind of soft, and very appealing (for me). The sound used was also very unique, cool intro, and at the end portion it sounds like a MOBY song which is still cool. The beat's kind of fast and the irony there is that it was sang slow (or is it pseudo-slow? like it sounds slow but it's not, get my point?). Oh, try listening to it, alright? You'll surely want to drive immediately! I used to imagine that I am driving along the expressway with a safe speed of 80kph while listening to it, driving a BMW Z4 top down with the air blowing my hair, like doing an MTV. Hehehe. The lyrics is very poetic, it's like every line has its own meaning. At first, you will never understand the meaning of the whole song but after several times of listening, you'll eventually get it. Her point was very clear, it's not a love song, it seems like a complicated love song but it's not because it's not a love song. It's that simple! Unrelated poetic lines are very appealing too, listeners can relate to the song like filling in every lines with their own different interpretations. Cute huh?

Overall? Soothing! Some said it was drowsing... If it is, then don't play it while driving. Hehehe...

Start you engines and here you go!

Cryptic words meander
Now there is a song beneath the song
One day you'll learn
You'll soon discern its true meaning
An interesting detachment
A listless poem of love sincere
Desire, despair
Overlapping melodies

And it's not a love, it's not a love
It's not a love, it's not a love song
It's not a love, it's not a love, it's not a love song
It's not a love, it's not a love, it's not a love song

And now the loops are reminiscing
Recurring dreams of minor chords
Metered time
Muted chimes find the beat

And in the pulse there lies conviction
A steady push and pull routine
Till cymbals swelled
High notes fell into reach

And it's not a love, it's not a love
It's not a love, it's not a love song
It's not a love, it's not a love, it's not a love song
It's not a love, it's not a love, it's not a love song

It's not a love, it's not a love,
It's not a love, it's not a love song
It's not a love, it's not a love, it's not a love song
It's not a love, it's not a love, it's not a love song
