Malta: An Original Song with a Message

Rate this item
(2 votes)

One of the most difficult roles in the music industry is surely songwriting and whenever a vocal artist performs work which he/she wrote, it becomes something special as has been noted on several occasions by the likes of 2011 Malta Eurovision Song Contest finalists; Corazon and Wayne Micallef who have been writing several of their tracks for a very long time. Nevertheless, the focus of this piece is a brand new original track entitled Destiny's Call which has been composed and penned by Mark Micallef, whom I have just found is keyboards player with local band; Negative Spaces who are looking forward to releasing their respective material onto radio very soon. This particular song though features his raspy vocal performance alongside that of Simone Gauci who is best known for being the winner of the first edition of Passport 2 Indifest organised by Spiteri Lucas Entertainment last year and thus made it through to the 2012 edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza where she performed the song Id F'Id composed by Renato Briffa and penned by Keith Zammit.

Destiny's Call is a beautifully written track with a deep message which might bring heartache to those who not only listen to the true meaning but also have somewhat lived with the person in question, Sarah Agius who loved to travel alongside her mother and father and ultimately whose faith was unfortunately decided during a trip to Valencia, Spain last year bringing her life to an unexpected end at an extremely tender age of eighteen. The pop/rock sound does the song justice in a variety of ways to be honest and the guitar solo just before the bridge is a stunning addition to well penned track. In the meantime, the lyrics themselves are absolutely brought to life by the impressive vocal interpretation by Mark Micallef and Simone Gauci who are seemingly professionals in their line of work. 

Time has gone away, Sarah

You have found a away

Cause if you stayed with me

You would smile again

but not for eternity. 

It has to be said that such songs have always been in question on whether they become real due to the message at hand and it is to be noted that the song in itself could definitely be a standalone track, a possible single to kick start both of their respective careers in Malta. Professionalism is key and this is surely the case when it comes to the recording and the production which has been conducted by Peter Borg of Red Electrick fame within Railway Studios. In recent weeks, the renowned band member has worked with the likes of Aaron Benjamin, Cryptic Street and Kurt Calleja amongst others. Ultimately, we invite you to listen to the track just below in a lyric video that has been posted online by Mark Micallef himself. The editorial board of supports this song wholeheartedly and ultimately hope that you share it with your friends and families to always remember the memory of the girl with a daily cheery disposition.
