i knew Jared Leto was in a band but didn’t know the name of it nor had i ever heard their music before the other day. While i was doing some work with the TV on MTV (i never do this, i usually have pandora on but for some reason i wanted to see some music videos) this song came on. As soon as the video started i had to look up to see who was wailing so soulfully… and to my surprise it was Jared Leto… then the strings came in… the violin (i swear the violin is the voice of my soul, i wish i could play it) playing a melody that I’ve played— with my very limited abilities — on the piano which as far as I’m concerned consists of 3 keys that I don’t even know the names of off the top of my head… i was immediately hooked… the more i listened the more i was drawn in… didn’t know the lyrics but his voice and the melody just really resonated with me… then the chorus came on, something like “…would you kill to save a life, tell me would you kill to prove you’re right…” and it made me want to pay attention to the rest of the words… anyway, i love, love, love this song now… still don’t know all the lyrics, but if i keep replaying it like i have i’m sure i’ll get it eventually. i really like this unplugged version of the song because of his wailing in the beginning and its simplicity… the official video has “adult” imagery that reminded me of the French film “Irreversible” which I didn’t much care for because I think it took the attention away from the song and the voice. As an art film, I might like it better… but Jared Leto does look very nice in it :)

2 cellos from croatia… saw them on a repeat episode of the ellen show just now and was completely captivated by their headbanging style of playing the cello… and they are kinda hot as well :)
