Favorite Mission Songs #6 - "Amelia"
July 12, 2017 8:19pm CST
Rather than a theme, this particular music countdown celebrates my favorite band, The Mission (known as The Mission UK here in the States,) with #6, "Amelia." The opening track their 1990 album, Carved in Sand," "Amelia" defies the band's goth roots with one hell of an angry song. "Amelia" is an anti-incest tune that focuses on a daddy that continually molests his little girl. As I said, this song is angry. Vocalist/guitarist Wayne Hussey sounds extremely PO'd as he sings. Forget goth, "Amelia" aims for the back of the stadium, showing The Mission's habit of leaning towards arena rock. Call it a serious song that deals with a very serious topic.
