❤ I Adore ❤ :: HIM and Ville Valo

It's no secret to anyone that knows me personally, I absolutely adore the band HIM. I've even thought about changing my religion on Facebook to HIM. I remember when the only way that I could listen to "Right here in my arms" was to find the specific chapter on the CKY 3 DVD by Bam Margera (I Adore him too, but we'll save that for another time).



I would rewind it and play it over and over (at the time you couldn't buy their music here in the US because they're from Finland). I couldn't get enough of it! And that lead singer! Oh my gosh, I couldn't look at him enough. Ville Valo is definitely one of my favorite singers. He's opera trained, and he just amazes me with his range. He puts his heart and soul into writing his songs, and his lyrics always seem to hit home. As a band they are constantly evolving, but somehow they always stay true to their sound.

Their music has always struck a certain cord in me. A bit sad, but in love at the same time. My favorite album is Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights. I could listen to it all day everyday. Okay, lets be honest here. I could listen to any of their albums all day, everyday. I don't even dare try to pick a favorite song (as I love them all), but I'll leave you with one of my favorite videos. It's called "In Joy and Sorrow", and I just love the cinematography in it.
