Alex Genadinik is back with another tune that is both melodic and epic. Check out “The One Who Didn’t” below:
The track begins with acoustic strumming that is rhythmic and builds anticipation for something grand to come forward. Lyrically, the song is about a man who is uncertain about his future, and just then, he is visited by Beethoven’s fifth to inspire him into action. We learn that the symphony caused the character in the narrative to aim high in life, but that also led to him having second doubts about what it was all for. The song ends with him laughing madly as he continues to be inspired by the symphony, leaving the listener to wonder what truly became of him.
The pace of the song and the energetic drumming add urgency to the pace. The chorus is catchy and mixes backing vocals, strings, and guitar finely. The breakdown after the first chorus will surely have you taping your foot. Overall there are a lot of interesting instrumental sections and songwriting prowess on display here, and the highlight is having the actual motif from the symphony ingrained into the song.
“The One Who Didn’t” is a fresh strong with strong inspiration, meaningful lyrics, and is both traditional in nature and progressive in its delivery. It is sure to be a song that will inspire others just as Ludwig’s 5th inspired this story. To learn about this song and read the full lyrics, click here.
