8877Re: Amazing Grace
- Dec 21, 2003The lyrics of the song are so moving and poignant, they're seemingly
haunting and strike almost the center of a person's being (if this is
a song that moves the person).
It wasn't until a year or two ago that I happened to find out about
the life of the man who wrote it, and how he was "compelled" to write
such a piece. It was such an epiphany for the man, such a complete
turn-around. It makes the song more meaningful on many levels.
... and when I hear it played by a lone piper in the mists or with a
single light upon him ... I'm moved to tears.

> Interesting that me and a friend were just talking about thisidea. I was saying that I believed in a song like "Amazing Grace"
because it is not marketed or packaged but yet everyone knows the
tune. The fact that no one know the author demonstrates that the
work became larger than the writter. Kind of like removal of the ego
literally. The object takes a life of it's own and moves away from
the creator. I am the first to admit that I get influenced and sold
by marketing but maybe songs like "Amazing Grace" Stand on there own
and have recognition for a reason. They are actually good.
