|The Rising Dawn - Maggie Young|
This song ''The Rising Dawn'' was a challenge; to see If I could write another Horror Song. Admit I found it a bit daunting at first, as thought how could I equal ''Sinful Streak'' However, not only did I enjoy writing and recording it, but the producer thought it was even better, than my first as we got to experiment with breathy sound effects; so don't worry ''I wasn't having throat problems'' LOL. ''The Rising Dawn'' (my second Horror song) which is a Broody, Rock/Pop song; is about a Vampire hunting down it's human victim, and trying to survive until daybreak. I find having a good imagination and an open mind, comes in handy for creative writing; and in this case song writing too!
Believe it or not VAMPIRES BATS DO exist – 3 types.They can walk, jump and even run. They are known as The Common Vampire Bat, The Hairy Legged variety and The White Winged Vampire Bat. These are mainly native to Central and South America; and they only hunt when it's fully dark. The only one that feeds off mammals and occasionally humans, is the ''Common Vampire Bat''. (Google it if you don't believe me) Must own up, as a teen, on a residential I caught a bat that had managed to get trapped in a dorm because someone turned a light on, which effected its bearings (it using a type of sonar) It was a fantastic opportunity to get a close up view of a non-vampire bat (since we don't have vampire bats in our country). We all got to inspect its sharp teeth and translucent wings. It just looked like a little flying mouse. All my friends huddled around to see this tiny creature I held gently, but firmly in my hands. I then took it outside and set it free. Though it was an eerie feeling as I let it fly off into the night, as it was a full moon that evening-WEIRD! A night I'll never forget, and one that has made my interest in bats grow even more including the paranormal ones lol !
I hope you enjoy listening to clips of this song “The Rising Dawn” I hope to get an instrumental version of this song recorded next time I'm in the studio, to add to the song and backing track. Watch This Space.
