Okay, stick with me on this one. Last time I didn't use the song I wanted because I couldn't properly find attribution and I didn't want to just link a random YouTuber who ripped the song off a CD (I assume they wouldn't download it, of course.) So today I'm going the other way.
Now you should all know by now I'm a fan of Aurelio Voltaire. His songs are amazing and honestly, I could throw a dart at his discography and find the theme of my next story. I chose this particular song, however, not because of Voltaire's talent, but because of the talents of one of his fans. This video (along with Voltaire's amazing vocals) is fantastic. So... for today's Paladin Playlist I present to you, The Night by Aurelio Voltaire...and animated by fan Daria Cohen.
First off, the song. It's amazing. It's Voltaire, so that's a given, but follow the lyrics and how can you NOT be inspired to write? But this one goes deeper. Daria Cohen's animation is SO spot on. I could easily see this being something official from Voltaire. I mean, look at that vampire! That is clearly Voltaire himself. I almost wrote "if he were a vampire" but to be honest, I can't prove his isn't one in real life.
Anyway, enjoy the video guys! It's a favorite of mine.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
