Rather than giving me five assorted songs, Amanda chose what she could find on YouTube for her favorite alternative-rock band Ludo's EP Broken Bride. The EP is a rock opera concept and the five songs tell the story of The Traveler, a man who loses his love in a tragic accident and 15 years later finally manages to complete the time machine he's been building in order to go back and save her. Of course, things don't exactly go as planned and The Traveler ends up back in the Jurassic Period before he rockets forward to the Apocalypse before finally getting to the point in time where he needs to be when his wife gets into the car for her fateful drive.
Per Amanda, don't watch the last three videos but just listen to the music as all she could find were Final Fantasy versions of the songs on YouTube. The first two are versions with the lyrics. I've listened to the EP numerous times while in the car - and around the house - and it's really not that bad; matter of fact, the last song has managed to put a lump in my throat from time to time but don't tell anyone I told you that - I don't want to blow my "tough" image!
