Guns N’ Roses | November Rain
This song gives me an intense comfort, in its groovy 80’s metal-ballady way. It always feels like it’s playing just for me, specifically, asking if I need some time on my own.
The part at the end when the guitars erupt into hellfire and then gently ease away like tinkling rain is delicious.
Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) - Chris Tomlin
This song was requested by an anon who had a recent death near to them. I wish I could have done a better job but tbh I was trying to get through it without sobbing because the last time I sang it was at my grandma’s funeral - I didn’t manage to get through the whole thing without crying but I kept singing so I hope it’s okay. I hope sleep comes swiftly and without pain tonight, sweetie. I love you.
okay so this is going to sound really really weird and i’m not sure why i’m even asking you this but… i haven’t been able to sleep for almost two nights besides nodding off for a few minutes because of a death that happened recently… and i was wondering if you could maybe record me a song tonight? to play over and over? a lullaby? i know you have covers but this song means a lot to me because of who died. could you maybe sing amazing grace my chains are gone? i think i’ve seen on here that you’re christian so i hope you know it. and if you can’t do this right now or just don’t want to i totally understand!!! but you have NO idea how much it would mean to me. your voice is my favorite thing in the world and i listen to your covers like every day. if you do it, can you maybe just sing it acca pella? like you did with your very first cover? i’m so so so so sorry to be asking this i hope you don’t hate me! I just thought it was worth a shot. feel free to ignore this if you want to!
