The Music Box Blues

There’s something about the music box blues that just gets under your skin. It’s that feeling of being lost in a moment, transported to another time and place. It’s the feeling of nostalgia, of longing for something that you can’t quite put your finger on. It’s a feeling that can be both sweet and bittersweet, both comforting and maddening. For me, it’s the perfect way to describe the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s music.

The TSO has a way of taking familiar tunes and giving them a new twist, a new lease on life. They have a way of making you feel like you’re hearing the song for the first time, even if you’ve heard it a thousand times before. And they have a way of making you feel like you’re part of something bigger than yourself, something magical.

When I’m singing the TSO’s music, I often feel like I’m in a dream. I’m transported to another world, one where anything is possible and the impossible is mere child’s play. It’s a world where there are no limitations, no boundaries. It’s a world where I can be anyone I want to be and do anything I want to do. And it’s all thanks to the music box blues.

The Singer’s Perspective

When I was asked to join the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, I didn’t know what to expect. I had never been in a rock opera before, and I wasn’t sure how my operatic training would fit in. But I was excited to try something new, and I loved the idea of being part of a group that was so dedicated to their art.

The first thing that struck me was the immense amount of work that goes into each show. We rehearsed for months before the first show, and the rehearsals were very intense. Every detail had to be perfect, from the music to the lights to the costumes. It was a lot of pressure, but it was also very exciting.

I had never sung with such a large group of people before, and it was an amazing experience. The energy of the crowd is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. When we perform, I feel like I am channeling the energy of thousands of people, and it is an incredible feeling.

Being part of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra has been an amazing experience, and I am grateful for every moment.


In conclusion, it can be said that “Music Box Blues” is a great song for both beginning and advanced vocalists. It is perfect for highlighting the range of emotions that the singer can evoke, from the wistfulness of the lyrics in the first verse to the powerful belting of the chorus. This song is sure to please any Trans-Siberian Orchestra fan, and is sure to make any karaoke night a hit!
