Sarantos has released his latest single and supporting video “A Child’s Mind”. Emotional lyrics hit home and they paint a vivid picture in your mind. It’s this kind of consistent songwriting that keeps fans like me coming back for more. Sarantos has an amazing way with words and his voice is equally in top form. He is a poet in the true sense of the word. He has written rockier songs and ballads, moving through a myriad of styles and genres. These songs usually describe life and love in desperation, pain, devotion and sometimes joy. Here Sarantos tackles the theme of being a child, remembering the innocent childhood of an immigrant boy. As usual, anything Sarantos writes and sings could not disappoint. And neither does “A Child’s Mind”.
“This music is a slow pop melody about how innocent and pure a child’s mind truly is,” says Sarantos. “He remembers being a child and misses feeling a bit wild…I think we’ve all at some point missed being a child to a certain degree. Only once upon a time were we truly young and free. However, I don’t personally believe children should ever be hungry or malnourished and it is such a shame that this still happens in our world today. With how far we have come as a species in such a short time, it’s just not right for a child to be hungry and not enjoy his childhood. It just breaks my heart!”
Musically and lyrically “A Child’s Mind” is a very fine piece of musical construction. This new music of Sarantos is amazing and touches the soul like I haven’t felt in a while. He has done some serious singer-songwriting in his career and this is just another brick in the wall, so to speak. This is a pop/rock song with a great sing-along chorus and once you listen to it, it will stay with you for hours.
There is that contemporary rock orientation which does not take anything away from the melodic essence of “A Child’s Mind” as Sarantos’ vocal performance is once again impeccable; his unmistakable tone adds all the attack in the performance, separating the song from the majority of modern radio-rockers. If you are a fan of FM-rock, melodic rock and adult oriented rock, this single is the ideal purchase of the season.
33% of any music-related sales profits from this song are going straight to Feed My Starving Children. Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and they ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. Sarantos even participated in one of these packing sessions on a cold Chicago night recently!
This is no doubt that “A Child’s Mind” is the best single he has ever recorded and produced. His voice is so strong and beautiful. He just keeps getting better and better. This is a song all generations of music lovers can enjoy.
