Woke up with this song prominently singing itself through my brain. Typical girl liking the slow song of a heavy metal band the best. But this really is such an awesome song. I like Metallica, I like their heavy stuff too. It’s just this song is so full of passion artistry and meaning. It shows off many reasons why they are such a good band with the longevity they have had.
Another thing that shows off how Metallica is a musically awesome band is the show they did with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. I like the whole S&M (Symphony and Metallica) album, all the music melds well with the orchestral additions. So here is that version too.
The reason, most likely, this song was stuck in my head, is that I have been listening to a very interesting instrumental cover lately. Nothing says heavy metal like renaissance lute.
