ACOUSTIC POWER: IN JOY AND SORROW

“In Joy and Sorrow” is the best track off Him’s 2002 release, Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights. The album had a more easy listening, mellower tone than the finnish rockers previous releases, and for various reasons, the band was said to almost break up during the recording process. Thankfully, Ville Valo and the boys managed to hold it together and are still going strong eight years later. Though the band has never truly broken through in North America the way they have in Europe, they’ve managed to string together a run of memorable singles over the years such as “Vampire Heart” and “It’s all Tears”.

Many of these songs have been honored with countless acoustic renditions from various fans across the Youtube landscape, and through patience and perseverance, we’ve managed to uncover two renditions of “In Joy and Sorrow” that offer both a male and female perspective.


In joy and sorrow my home’s in your arms
In a world so hollow, it’s breakin’ my heart
In joy and sorrow my home’s in your arms
In a world so hollow, it’s breakin’ my heart
