Daredevil wasn’t a great movie, but it did have a great soundtrack. One of the best songs featured in the movie is “Bring Me to Life” by the band Evancescence. The song perfectly fit the movie, and has become a huge smash hit all over the world.
With the popularity of “Bring Me to Life,” Evanescence’s first album, Fallen, has become a top seller. It’s currently #1 on the European album chart and in the top ten in the U.S.. Read on to learn more about Evanescence!

Dialog

1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Before being featured in Daredevil, Evancescence was a little-known band from Little Rock, Arkansas. They’re musical style has been called goth rock, but singer Amy Lee thinks differently. She says, “I wouldn’t call it goth. I would use dark instead. It’s dark and epic, beautiful, heavy, rock.” (VH1)
Amy has a unique and powerful voice. It’s a perfect combination with the eerie sound of Evanescence’s music. Her lyrics are also powerful. In “Bring Me to Life” she sings about the feeling she gets when she realizes that she’s in love. Everything about life seems to be better than before. Check out some of the lyrics:
how can you see into my eyes
like open doors
leading you down into my core
where I’ve become so numb
without a soul
my spirit sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home

Discussion

I’m usually not a fan of rap/rock music like Limp Bizkit or Linkin Park, but I have to admit, I like Evancescence. Amy Lee has an incredible voice. She sounds a lot like Tori Amos, who I love.
I heard a cool dance remix of “Bring Me to Life” at a club last weekend. I liked it even more than the original song. If you haven’t heard Evanescence yet, you should definitely check them out.
Rock on,
Migs
