Madeon – Icarus (Collin McLoughlin Vocal Edit)

Posted by on April 23, 2012

Collin McLoughlin latest release, an uplifting Vocal Edit of Madeon’s Icarus, is nothing short of epic. Not only does Collin preserve the same exhilarating feel that characterizes Madeon’s music, but he also developed lyrics which expand upon the central theme of the original song. As Collin himself describes,

Feeling inspired by the song I set out to create lyrics that related to the original Icarus story

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the story of Icarus and need a quick refresher course on Greek Mythology, please allow Wikipedia to bring you up to speed:

The main story told about Icarus is his attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. He ignored instructions not to fly too close to the sun, and the melting wax caused him to fall into the sea where he drowned.

So take a moment, bask in the the production greatness that Madeon never fails to provide, and really pay close attention to the beautiful lyrics that Collin so masterfully composed.
