Why am I not surprised to find out that the late Gary Moore was Irish? I have a love of music. There are a few bits of suspicion that I may be a syntesthete. That is, I experience a ‘muddling’ of sensations, so music has a few additional layers to my experiences. I actually spend a lot of time listening to different versions of a single song and loving the differences in sensation, plus, I have to find the right sounding one.
I love and enjoy this song, however, since I am a natural storyteller. This is a story-song. That is clear right from the go. I do have to point out that I first heard this song as it was done by Nightwish.
