Silence

“Silence” is a song by the Canadian group Delirium. It features singer Sarah McLachlan (also Canadian) who also has a co-writing credit.

There are so many remixes, and a number of them came out at the same time, that it is hard to know what is the original version. The album (or radio) mix was about 4 minutes, and cut to sound “pop.” The Sanctuary mix which was released at the same time is over 11 minutes. This is a compromise at 6 and a half. (The song was released in 1999 in the UK, and the following year in the US.)

“Silence” is trance music, which is to say long, builds to at least 1 and maybe more peaks before ending.

I really like McLachlan’s voice; I find it haunting in some way on this piece.

If you are getting messages from YouTube about some videos not allowed on some sites, it because you are running effective ad-blocking SW. YouTube (Or should I say Google) doesn’t like that.
