The other day I was browsing through YouTube just like all of you were when I came upon a music video of Lisa Hannigan's. My thought process: Lisa Hannigan? Oh my god! Lisa Hannigan! I used to be in love with you!
I wasn't really in love with her. I was in love with her and Damien.
The combination of voice from Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan was really fucking spot on. Epic. EPIC. They have two of the best voices in the folk genre, but they were even better together. "Volcano" is the perfect example of this. Epic. EPIC. Maybe it's the sadness of both their voices. Maybe it's because Damien Rice is a musical genius and made songs that would perfectly exemplify their prowess. I can't really name it. But they just sound so good
together... I wanted them to get married... They were perfect... Fuck Sonny and Cher...
... and then on March 25, 2007, Damien wrote on his website that "his professional relationship with Lisa Hannigan has run its course." WTF. Like really. WTF. I was heartbroken. And I knew Damien would live on and Lisa would fall to the backdrop forever...
... but I was obviously wrong. YouTube told me. I was watching the video for "Lille." I wanted to love it. I wanted to love her again. The music wasn't bad. Her voice was still the same. But the video began and she was just so clean and she was wearing make-up and I just kept on thinking back to the little Lisa Hannigan with the messy braids and layered necklaces and bracelets and... *sigh*
I miss Lisa Hannigan and Damien Rice.
Video killed the radio star. The video for "Volcano."
