I Cannot Get This Song Out Of My Head - Truth By Alexander Ebert

Why does this song turn my senses on so much? Why is it so emotive? I will tell you very quickly. For one, it is as though he has drawn from the well on which Ennio Morricone composed his great Spaghetti Western tracks, then add into this little cauldron a whistle (all great songs seem to have a whistle these days), now use a little hip hop influence to create the lyrics so that the flow of the music has a staccato lyrical sing song to it - we are not done just yet, there is one more little thing to add. The lyrics. This is what brings the song together. Ebert had a messianic complex a couple of years ago and with that came the wonderful Christian ideals which have now flowed into his music. What are they? I hear you ask.... Well, let me clarify, he refers to shining light where there is darkness, that his enemies have become his teachers and that he is caught up with internal conflict much like Jesus in the desert as he says 'the truth is I never shook my shadow, every day it's trying to trick me into doing battle'. I just love this song.
