Aron Wright’s haunting voice in And Still, the Darkness Comes had me instantly mesmerized. The song was played during my daughter Terra’s end-of-year dance showcase over high-quality speakers. Add low lights, lanterns, and dancers, and the song worked like a drug. Obsessed, I emailed the teacher to get the name of the song and artist so I could purchase it.
And Still, the Darkness Comes (posted by KungaMcD), like Unknown Caller, has a “high intoxication factor,” or HIF.
It is part of the Beyond the Music playlist, which, like To the “Tune” of Beyond the Precipice, will become public once it’s finalized and sequenced with Beyond the Music‘s chapters.
This song is a key ingredient because of how it lines up with more of Bret Killeen’s dark moments, this time due to different reasons than those faced in the first book. And Still, the Darkness Comes is therefore already featured on Beyond the Music‘s book page as a primer of mood and what to expect from the book. It is interesting to note, however, that I discovered this song exactly three years after the writing of Beyond the Music began. It is only in retrospect I snapped it up and added it to the playlist because of its fit.
