When Ed was trying to write a song about the Roskilde Festival tradegy (where 9 fans died in the pit) all he could come up with to express his feelings was Arc.
Also it has only been performed 9 times.....and probably will never be again.
I always thought footsteps was near the top of the list.
Black...no question...this is a song of pure and utter deep seeded grief. It goes beyond grief, actually... There are lots of PJ songs about grief, but then there's "Black"...
