Blog Post #3: In My Veins

Posted on Updated on

Alright, it’s time for another musical update. I first heard this song in Castle in season 6, when Caskett finally picks out their wedding song. Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot more, and I’ve realized actually how amazing it is. Andrew Belle is just a phenomenal artist, and his voice is incredible, but this version (!!!!) with Erin McCarley’s vocals is simply dizzying. I love it so much.

I don’t really have much else to say about it, but I guess it can relate to The Scarlet Letter in some ways.

“Nothing goes as planned
Everything will break

I really love this beginning because of its fragility. It talks about a delicate circumstance, and the music and Belle’s voice add to it. I feel like it really parallels to Hester’s current situation, because her entire life and everything she’s ever known suddenly is ripped out from under her and she’s left on her knees, trying to find mercy to reintegrate herself into society and her old life.

I don’t really know, I just really want everyone to love this song as much as I do. 🙂
