This is something bigger you can't live without

If you signed up to Opendisc you will have received an unexpected musical gift today in your inbox: a nice little video and a couple of songs from Salem: "Astronaut" and "The Others" (a.k.a. "One of the Others").

(I like the way he has recorded the video message in his kitchen: it's like another little "Kitchen Session" isn't it!!)

If you heard Salem's Berwaldhallen concert on Swedish Radio on 1 January you will have heard "One of the Others" and you will also have realised just how fantastic it is. The first time I heard it I was so moved by the melody and the arrangement.

I had that same feeling tonight, hearing the recorded version for the first time. I felt so emotional that my eyes were almost filling up with tears of happiness. Lyrically clever and musically upbeat, this song is just so fabulous I can't put it into words. (So I won't even try).

If you haven't signed up to Salem's Opendisc it's still not too late. All you have to do is pop your "This Is Who I Am" CD into your computer whilst you're connected to the internet, follow the Opendisc links and sign up.
