Temple of Love is an amazingly peppy, high-octane, full of energy song that you wont be able to ignore. Definitely the best Synthpop song I have ever heard. This one really enthralls my broken heart. Been feeling quite sad of late & Temple of Love helps me get over those blues. Its brilliant. Pure bliss. One of my all-time favorites.
Lets dive deep into the technicalities. Temple of Love is an uptempo, upbeat song written by Alexander Bard & Anders Hansson & sung by Martin Rolinski who are a part of Swedish Synthpop band BWO or Bodies Without Organs. It first featured in Melodifestivalen 2006 where it stood 2nd. Then it was released as a single from the studio album Halcyon Days & reached to # 1 on Swedish chart. Song kicks off with a long delicious intro. Doesnt follow the common verse-chorus-bridge-postchorus style. Chorus is just amazing that repeats many times. Since its a Synthpop number, you'll feel Synthesizer sounds all over. Martin puts all his energy in singing & song's production is just outstanding, hence overall feel is a treat. This is one of the songs where production outshines singing. Synth sounds are engaging, melody is gorgeous but production is class apart. Melodifestivalen's live performance only adds to the already engaging experience. Its a treat to hear. Watch & hear to your heart's content. Watch the gem (live performance) below.
