Singled Out: Sprung Monkey's 'Save Me' featuring Mike Muir
Being in the music industry, I've seen more than my share of good friends and talent fall by way of drugs and alcohol. The song "Save Me" was inspired by the personal experience I had with someone very close to me. It's a very sad and frustrating feeling watching someone you love slowly deteriorate due to the effects, knowing full well that all your efforts are in vain until that person truly acknowledges that they have a problem and want to change their life. Only until they ask for help can they truly be saved. That is where the chorus of the song lies, "Save Me, can you Save Me from myself, can somebody Save Me, because I just can't do it by myself".
I believe Mike Muir, from the band Suicidal Tendencies, having his own similar situations, could really understand and respect the message that the song delivers. When he expressed his interest and offered his talents I knew "Save Me" was more than just a song. It was something special. It digs deep in one's soul. It touches the heart as well as the home. Everyone has or has had someone they know or love battling this disease. It's a nasty ride often times ending either cold and laid out six feet deep or alone broken down on your knees screaming "Save Me".
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
