Love Song For A Vampire

This is a cherished song in my life from a really fantastic movie, I really can’t believe it was made back in 1992, I feel very old. Anyway, I knew I wanted to do a version of this song by one of my musical idols, Annie Lennox, but was adamant that I couldn’t step on toes. I took the basic melody and the haunting lyrics and messed with the keys a bit to give it a totally new feel. I really hope you like it as it was a lot of fun to create – took me quite a while though.

As always, feel free to download this and use for anything you like, all I ask is a link to my website. Enjoy. X

    This has always been one of my favourite songs. I played it constantly when I first got the Dracula soundtrack.
    No disrespect to Annie Lennox, but if I could only ever listen to one version again it would have to be this one.
    Absolutely brilliant job, Karliene. Thank you!!

    Wow, that’s a true compliment right there. Thank you so much. I’m flattered to pieces. X

    I have no words. This is absolutely magic.
    I’ve been listening for this for weeks and it still makes me cry as the first time I listened to it.
    One of the best song (version in this case) I’ve ever listened to.
    Thanks for this. Really.

    this is beautiful, somehow better than Lennox version…more…idk fitting for that couple. I mean with the way he loved her…”I have crossed the oceans of time to find you” this version can be summed up by those.

  11. Karliene July 4, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Thank you, i’m so glad you see it that way. I do love Annie’s version so much but I loved putting my own spin on it and making it a little darker. I love that line “I have crossed oceans of time to find you” it’s so romantic. x

    Holy crap!! I stumbled across your music when I was watching a video made about The Hollow Crown, so I just had to investigate!

    Your voice is just gorgeous! Hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to show your stuff to my students (I’m a music teacher), they will go nuts!!! 🙂

    All the best for your vocal health as well!!!

  13. Karliene July 15, 2013 at 7:12 am

    wow, of course I don’t mind. I’m incredibly flattered, thank you so much. Hope it goes down well. 🙂

    Simply transcendent.

    Big fan of all you have done, I’m not prone to leaving remarks on websites and such but, this song stopped me in my tracks and compelled me to add my praises to those deservedly being heaped upon you. Fantastic voice, Your my favourite bard.

  15. Karliene July 18, 2013 at 8:22 am

    wow, well thank you so much and thanks for going out of your way to write on my site. That means so much to me. I’m so happy you’re enjoying the songs. x

    Hey Karliene,
    Your voice is truly stunning and unbelievably soulful. It’s been a honor and pleasure to listen to your songs. Now, I do have a question pertaining to this song: Love Song for a Vampire. I have attempted to find lyrics online but they don’t match up to your version. Can you lend me a hand? I want to perform it for my husband on our anniversary next year.

    Get to me when you can, I know you’re busy!
    -Kylie

    Hi Kylie,
    Thank you so much for your kind words, that’s so sweet.
    As for the song, my lyrics were a little changed in that the line “be mine forever” was repeated a bit more but generally they are the same lyrics as the original song.
    Here’s a link to the one’s I used : http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/annielennox/lovesongforavampire.html
    I wish you all the best with your rendition for your Husband, I hope he appreciates such a lovely and personal present. X
