Nightwish Lyrics

The year 2006 began with good news for Nightwish: Their
"Highest Hopes" Best-Of compilation had not only crossed
the Finnish Double Platinum mark of 60,000 sold copies, it
was also Finland's best-selling album of 2005, having sold
more than 65,000 times. With the media frenzy finally
slowing down, the band members found time to concentrate on
the important things again. Tuomas had already written the
majority of the new songs, Emppu recorded some new tunes
with the Finnish hard rock band Brother Firetribe, Marco
returned to the Tarot More...

Review about Nightwish songs
A song of nightmares, yet filled with a ghoulish sort of beauty. | Reviewer: Shaku
    ------ About the song Scaretale performed by Nightwish

The song is epic. simple as that. It relies heavily on the symphonic side of Tuomas's style of composing, and is a good listen even as an instrumental, too. Feel-wise, it's dark, and sorta creepy, with a carnival vibe, and is distinctly harsher than most Nightwish pieces (kind of right there with Master Passion Greed, but with much heavier symphonic elements). The fusion of a rough, more gritty style of metal than most Nightwish, with the very prominent orchestra and choir can't be over-emphasized. It kinda reminded me of Advent: One Winged Angel, for those who've heard the Uematsu Nobuo masterpiece.

    ------ About the song Walking In The Air performed by Nightwish

I am old, but had never heard of The Snowman. I first listened to this song song on "Christmas Choral Classics" sung by the Crouch End Festival Chorus - Conducted by David Temple and backed by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. I think it is one of the most beautiful tunes, so full of longing and gorgeous key changes. I love it. -- from Keaau, Hawaii, USA.

    ------ About the song Walking In The Air performed by Nightwish

I have sung the song in the choir I belong to and the words you display are correct from the published music we sang from. Also how do you explain to someone when they insist Aled Jones was the original singer when all along I have known it was Peter Auty? Aled has a beautiful voice but if you listen carefully you can hear the difference.

    ------ About the song Ghost Love Score performed by Nightwish

I've listened to the original studio version and loved it. Now there is a video of the band playing live at Wacken in 2013, this song is so awesome, especially the last couple of minutes, it took my breath away. Literally. I was gasping for breath after it ended!
I'm not sure about studio stuff but when Nightwish play live with Floor up front, they are even better than with Tarja singing, and that is high praise indeed.

    ------ About the song Walking In The Air performed by Nightwish

Peter Auty sang the original song it was only two years later that Aled Jones released it. Peter was credited with singing the song when it was remastered in 2002. Great film/cartoon though, always a favourite. And a new version the Snowman and the Snowdog released for Christmas 2012, brilliant also.

The Poet And The Pendulum - My Favorite Song! | Reviewer: Marcus
    ------ About the song The Poet And The Pendulum performed by Nightwish

This song is really my favorite song right now. And I love the album "Dark Passion Play". Of course I love the songs that Tarja sang in, I love "Ghost Love Score" and "Nemo". But seriously? I don´t think that Tarja could sing this song, it´s made for Anette.

By the way, this song makes my day sometimes and because of this song I love longer songs now.

Brave new world for Nightwish | Reviewer: ivan
    ------ About the song Ever Dream performed by Nightwish

I really like several older songs, like this one, but Nightwish from Once to Imaginaerum (and onwards) is one totally new, grownup band with serious songwriting and orchestral structure. I'm so glad Tuomas took that way and didn't repeat himself like many other symphonic metal bands that all sound the same. We have Floor now, a modest princess with THE voice, she sings this song incredibly powerful and sexy, I'm enjoying it much more than ever before. The mood in the band is so good, I'm so very ecstatic and can't wait for my Showtime, Storytime to arrive and the new album!

Good, could have been great | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song The Poet And The Pendulum performed by Nightwish

This is one of my favorite Nightwish songs, but there's one thing that stops it from being one of my favorite songs period, and that is the spoken parts. They just come across as forced and pretentious, being there just to be there and not really belonging. I'd listen to this a lot more if it wasn't for those.

You never know | Reviewer: Ralph
    ------ About the song Beauty Of The Beast performed by Nightwish

Impressively, we never really know when we're ready to listen to certain songs. I feel like it's chosen me now, even though it sounds crazy.I simply loved every single detail of this masterpiece and I wish people could feel good as I do when I play it on my cellphone. Breathtaking!

Nice song, but... | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Elvenpath performed by Nightwish

High quality power metal song (of course, it's freaking nightwish). Only thing that really, I mean /really/, bothers me is that Tuomas rhymed world with sword. And Tarja pronounces it exactly that way... *shudder*
