In Celebration of Valentine’s Day: Of all the unexplainable moments in life (and there are a lot!), few compare to love at first sight. That deep, magical sensation of familiarity with someone you’ve seemingly just met is captured tenderly in Peter Link’s ballad It’s You Again. Peter’s gentle voice blends wonderfully with guitar and light orchestration to recreate this sensation for us, and undoubtedly you will fall in love at first listen. This song is from Peter’s album Thru Me, a compilation of favorite songs written between 1980 and 2000, was produced, orchestrated and sung by the composer. Taken from both his work in the theater and from his own personal experience, the styles range from theatrical to pop. Here are Peter’s thoughts on this song:
“I’d like to believe in reincarnation. The truth is, I just don’t know. The Dalai Lama makes a pretty good case for it.
“Child prodigies who pick up violins at age 5 and just start playing them at a very high caliber do also.
“I once had an inkling that I was killed in another lifetime when my horse drawn carriage ran off the road into a river somewhere in France. But maybe it was the result of just an overactive imagination. I don’t know.
“Nonetheless, it’s always a fun speculation.
“One indication that we might just be returning souls is this whole thing called falling in love. Twice now in life I’ve fallen deeply in love and it was so instant, so powerful and so dramatic that there was a feeling of returning, a sudden depth of knowing, a connection that had a previous history to it.
“Sometimes, when I would look into her eyes I would see a soul that seemed to go on forever, that encompassed more than one body and that was so much a part of me that the years of this lifetime were not enough to sustain the depth and wonder of the relationship.
“This song is from my imagination, but based on illusive truths that I do not understand. Its reminiscence is an ungraspable ether.”
