Twenty-Five Days of TSO – Day Twenty-Two
Forget About the Blame (Moon Version)
Letters from the Labyrinth (2015)
But you sit right there
Like you don’t care
And you tell me that your life’s not fair
But we all have our own cross to bear
Trans-Siberian Orchestra have songs about love, but this is one isn’t in the context of a story, it’s not part of some grand tale of characters that we’re following through Christmas or through the last night of Beethoven.
This rocker is a straight up song about love on the rocks. People love each other, and in our everyday lives we don’t have angels or demons or gargoyles on our side getting us to mend our broken relationships. Sometimes we need to sit down and do the work and focus on the good and forget about the blame.
Originally, TSO recorded this with a male vocalist (Sun Version), but decided to get the female perspective on the tune and enlisted Lzzy Hale of Halestorm to sing this version of the track. This version is my favorite of the two.
