It’s more than a feeling (more than a feeling)
When I hear that old song they used to play (more than a feeling)
And I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)
‘Til I see Marianne walk away
Ah yes, who can forget Boston’s 1976 (until forever) megahit “More Than A Feeling”, the patron saint-song of the sound known as ARENA ROCK (or if you are a nerd like me, AOR).
I wrote a very unhinged essay you can now check out at Cover Me about the ludicrous, heart-on-the-sleeve magnificence of Arena Rock and why it is an emotional time machine like no other (uh, this statement will make sense once you read it, swear). Turn off your mind, abandon your cynicism & I will not only try to explain its wonders but also treat you to some blisteringly fabulous covers of Arena Rock classics that may shock you with their unbelievable goodness. Hey, at least come hear Kelly Clarkson sing “More Than A Feeling” because holy jeezus, it’s a monster.

Another unexpected treat! I enjoyed this so much, which you’re so good at, taking your readers someplace musically, out of our comfort zones. I was reluctant to go at first and then I had such a blast reading and listening to each of these. Favorites were Maniacal 4 and Rise Against but Tori V did so good with that stripped down version, wasn’t missing anything.
