Evolution Series: #16 – Let Me Sleep
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: December 16th, 2021
Happy Holidays! Bet you didn’t see this coming. I know we promised that Crazy Mary would be next on the list, but we figured we’d take a festive detour to cover a song that’s been played 8 times in their history. Believe it or not, Let Me Sleep does have a pretty interesting Evolution.
A story of lore will tell us that the song’s creation happened earlier than we anticipated and that is a story we re-tell here. The song would be played once in 1994, and then again in 2006 to be featured on the Immagine En Cornice film, however that version wasn’t actually live. It would go 613 shows before being legitimately played again.
The story of the song actually has a lot of depth and a big piece to this episode is hearing that story sort of unravel as time passed on. It isn’t just a Christmas song, but a look into what life is like for others who aren’t as fortunate to be celebrating the holiday in the presence of loved ones. We’ll talk all 8 versions and watch it evolve!
