PostSubject: The "You" Situation   Wed Aug 06 2008, 15:26

I guess would go here, since we're not technically talking about the sing's music...

We all know that we're not supposed to listen to it, because it's a very personal and emotional song for Amy.
But my questions are...

Do you listen to it?
Do you feel bad?
Do you think it really matters?
If Ben and Amy didn't want it to be heard why did they record it?

My answers...

I do listen to it, it has some of Amy's best vocal work and it's beautiful. I don't feel bad about it. I seriously Amy cares anymore about it, seeing as she's now happyily married. As for the last one I don't know.

What about you?

Great thread Kayleigh cheers

I have listened to "You", twice I think........well one and a half I turned it off half way through the second time Twisted Evil I did feel bad, I have to admit. You're probably right I doubt she cares anymore but I'd still prefer her to come out and say that its cool to listen to it. If she does I'll probably listen to it loads!

Looking forward to reading what all our members think about this! Very Happy

* Well, I must say that I have it. Yeah, you can curse me lol
But I don't listen to it. It's not one of my favorite songs. I understand why it is a personal song for Amy.
* Do I feel bad? Sometimes...
* Do you think it really matters? I think it doesn't anymore.
* If Ben and Amy didn't want it to be heard why did they record it? They record it for family and friends. Also Ben said thata guy put the song on the Internet:

Quote :
You is a personal song attributed to Amy Lee originally intended for a select few people. It important to note that it is not included in Amy Lee's registered repertoire on Bmi.com. It is a pre-Fallen song that the band asks fans not to download.
Ben Moody described the situation with the song on the Original Exodus Evanescence Board in early 2003 with the following post:
Since Origin, hehas taken the liberty of connecting himself with everything we've everdone. He even has gone to a studio that we recorded at (the owner of which was a friend of his) and made cd's of songs he was never supposed to have. One song in particular, was VERY private. He was FORBIDDEN toshow it to anyone, since there was no way I could actually be sure I had every copy. COUNTLESS times people have commented on that song andhow he showed it to them. When confronted, he just denies it or saysthat they heard it on accident or some bullshit. there's a very good chance some of you have it on your computer RIGHT NOW.

The Original Exodus Evanescence Board was a scrolling type board
hosted by boards2go.com at the time this post was made (meaning old
messages dropped off the bottom of the page and were not archived).
Talking about this song in the Evanescence fan community is the fastest way to become persona non grata.

At request of the band Evanescence and lead singer Amy Lee,
all websites containing the lyrics or mp3 to the song "You"
are supposed to remove said lyrics or mp3s immediately.
The song was never supposed to be released,
it was a personal song dedicated to her friends and family...
The band has made many announcements on their official site
to please stop circulation of said song.

I have the song, it was on a CD of older Evanescence songs that my friend gave to me a couple of years ago. I listened to it once or twice, but once I heard about the fact that Amy didn't want people to listen to it or have it spread around the internet, I stopped listening to it.

Do you listen to it? Yes. Only once, though. Because right after I heard it, I went to Evboard.com and found out that you weren't supposed to hear it.
Do you feel bad? Yes, I did.
Do you think it really matters? Yes, because you have to respect her wishes to her fans.

Do you listen to it?
Yes, I bought a bootleg CD [Not For Your Ears] in 2003 and it was included on the disc, at that time I didn't know EvBoard [or anything similar] existed and the only site I visited that was Evanescence related was evanescence.com, so I didn't realise it wasn't meant for people to listen to.

Do you feel bad?
Honestly, no, because I don't think the song probabaly matters to Amy anymore, the song existed long before Josh and Amy started dating. I strongly think it may have been written by Amy for Ben or about Ben, because in "The Document" biography DVD amy's father during his interview for the biography confirmed that they had dated.

Do you think it really matters?
I think it matters, I wouldn't go encouraging others to find it and listen to it, but sometimes, when I'm having a bad day, it really does make me feel better.
