The recent quarantine era reaffirms something that we are not usually willing to accept, we are alone in this world. And it is precisely in this tragic times that we want to pay tribute to a singer that, thanks to his undeniable talent and in spite of his popularity, portrayed his real feelings of loneliness in the track “Living on my own”.
Of course we speak about the great Freddie Mercury, and about a song that, even though has this energetic sound, also carries a message that fits perfectly to many of us in these last months.
Personally we must confess that these times have not been easy. Seeing the same four walls all day long, losing track of time, because every day is the same, knowing that many colleagues and close people are having a bad time, being away from our loved ones, staring through the window, remembering how life used to be and how things can change so drastically; are situations that make the feeling of loneliness, that we have always cherished, turn into something dark, and look for any possible way to stay busy, in order not to fall into a desperation cycle. Of course, this tune is the soundtrack that has been all along in our heads.
Living on my own is a song that we have adopted since the beginnings of XinniX, including a live version from Saarbrücken, Germany, into our first homonymous studio album, that is why, we have a deep esteem for it, and, since now more that ever it becomes the perfect companion in these times, we have decided to do a much more intimate version from our homes.
As Hollywood movies would say… “This time is personal”
