Wipe away the teardrop from your eye

I was watching reruns of Supernatural season 2 last night. (I know you're probably wondering why would I re-watch a show that was done with years ago but hey, the Winchesters are so much fun to gape at. Haha)

Anyway, in this one episode Sam (my favourite Winchester) has a fling with the victim who actually turned out to be the monster itself. When there was no other cure to help her, Madison, the werewolf-slash-monster girl asked Sam to kill her. Something about not wanting to hurt other people and know, the usually sappy drill. Sam was close to crying a river and Dean being a big brother that he is told Sam he'd do it if Sam couldn't bear to pull the trigger. But Sam knew he had to do it himself anyway.

Now why am I giving you a play by play here? Because it was throughout this scene that I noticed a really good background song. It complemented perfectly the entire scene of Sam being in agony for having to kill his *coughs* girlfriend *coughs*.

Then I went googling that song on the internet. The track is called Silent Lucidity by Queensryche. This metal / progressive rock band has been around since the 1981. How cool is that huh? And the track was released in 1990, when I was just 3 years old. It's an oldie but a goodie.

It's a really wicked power ballad (power ballads are slow rock songs for most general rock bands, not the Mariah Carey or Celine Dion kind of ballad) and halfway through the song there's a guy doing some mojo-talk in a really deep. It's hauntingly creepy actually because right after that there's a girl pleading "Help Me". Uuhhh???

Anyway, other than that I love the song. It has a symphony-rock feel to it. Like I mentioned before, if you could fuse orchestra-symphony into a rock track then you've got my vote.

**Charlie And The Chocolate Factory is airing tonight on TV3 @ 10 pm. Johnny Depp, Freddie Highmore *yeay!* and lots and lots of chocolate. You can't get any better than that. ;D **
