Black is the colour, of my true love’s hair Her lips are like, a rose so fair
She’s got the sweetest face and the gentlest hands
I love the ground, whereon she stands
I cannot get enough of this song. The vocals are absolutely haunting and even with over 7 minutes, I always find myself thinking that the song was ending too soon. There’s quite a few remixes of this song as well, each which were beautifully done.
The Devine Intervention remix came out in 2007 and is still played to this day. From my quick search, it seems like MarLo is still quite a fan of the song, playing it several times a year in his sets, sometimes mashed up with another song.
I can’t remember where I had heard this song live but it’s standalone enough that my memory was instantly triggered when I found it again on Reddit. A bit of a chance encounter but maybe the same will happen again when I’m at the next ABGT.
