Music Monday: Haunting

As Heather Dale states the video intro, this song is about Joan of Arc, “who is a creature of  darkness or light, depending on which side you saw her from.”  Heather writes on her website that “I had been trying to use her as a metaphor for independence, but [songwriting partner] Ben rightly pointed out that she could also be viewed as a violent zealot who blithely killed in the name of God.”

For me this is a song of commitment, a song that grabs me and doesn’t let go.  Lyrics are here.
