Cover Wars: My Immortal by Evanescence

“My Immortal” is a song by American rock band Evanescence from their debut studio album Fallen (2003). It was released in 2003, as the third single from the album. The song was entirely written by guitarist Ben Moody, with the exception of the bridge, which was later written by lead singer Amy Lee, and it was produced by Moody. “My Immortal” is a piano rock song written in slow and haunting tempo. Lyrically, it talks about “a spirit staying with you after its death and haunting you until you actually wish that the spirit were gone because it won’t leave you alone.” Critical reception towards the song was positive, with critics complimenting its piano melody. In 2005, it received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. The song was also commercially successful, peaking within the top ten in more than ten countries.

An accompanying music video directed by David Mould was filmed entirely in black-and-white in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, Spain. The video shows Lee sitting and singing on various locations, but never touching the ground. Shots of Moody are also shown but he is never together with his band or Lee. The video was nominated in the category for Best Rock Video at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards.

Usually performed by female artists, our Cover Wars this week features female, male, duo, and instrumental versions.

Hello, my name is Arlene Allen, and I love all things nerd: genre tv and movies, books, loud rock and roll music, kittens, conventions, books, graphic novels and superheroes, RPG and tabletop games, and did I say books? Oh, yes. I spent 25 years as a librarian (nerd) mainly working with youth (creating nerds), a number of years as a teacher (more nerd indoctrination). I have my own spawn, leveled up to 22 and my partner in nerdiness. As a nerdy writer, I have found a home at Talk Nerdy With Us.
