In December 2021 Sixx:A.M. released the piano vocal version of their song “Life Is Beautiful.” Today it was recommended to me on YouTube, and I am absolutely shocked that at the moment this version only has a little over 40,000 views.
Hopefully that counter will skyrocket soon. This version of “Life is Beautiful” is absolutely incredible, powerful, and will take you on an emotional roller coaster.
One of my favorite parts of the song is when James Michael sings “I know some things that you don’t, and I’ve done things that you won’t. There’s nothing like a trail of blood to find your way back home. I was waiting for my hearse, what came next was so much worse it took a funeral to make me feel alive. Just open your eyes, open your eyes and see that life is beautiful.”
Also, I really liked a comment that got left that says “they could release 100 versions of this song and I would buy them all. Life truly is beautiful.”
Earlier in the week I was talking about another song that was a cover. I have come to the realization regardless if it is the original band reinterpreting their song(s) or a cover from another artist, it is absolutely amazing how the meaning of the song can change.
In this case I’ve heard “Life is Beautiful” before and enjoyed the song. Since hearing the piano vocal version though, I cannot get enough of the song and have been listening to it on repeat.
