Story Behind the Song

I don't believe that there are many songs delving into the carribean mythos of Brigitte and Salmudi, though voodoo has been touched upon in films from Live and Let Die to Angel Heart - so starting with a tom beat and some spacey sound effect I tell a tale of perhaps meeting voodoo royalty.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very unique and clever piece with a very pleasing riff. Instrumentation and arrangement sounds topnotch.

    - MGB

Intro really grabbed my ears, could have gone on like that! The main lick is a nice little earworm. Lead guitar really sings too, adds some spice to the song. The arrangement has the most imagination of any other part of the track, for me. Really nice how it shifts the mood. Excellent musicianship behind that arrangement too.

Lyrics

- salmudi, come to me -

down by the border I met a gypsy queen
took me by the hand, showed me things I'd never seen

power of love

said her name was Brigitte, had a rooster feathered black
stole my heart with a simple spell and she ain't going to give it back

power of love
power of love was in her soul

she kept calling me her Salmudi, told me it was my fate
I hear chants, see mystic realms, it's too much for me to comtemplate

power of love
power of love was in her soul

burning with fever, consumed with fire
to die in her arms is my one desire
she made me love her, I had no chance
I'm an unwilling partner in her voodoo dance

power of love - endless temptation
power of love - endless possibilities
power of love was in her soul
