Alec Benjamin – Must Have Been The Wind

“Must Have Been The Wind” by Alec Benjamin is an intricate, moving, and beautifully complicated song.

From the onset, the songwriting is masterful and layered with melodies that pull at you while the lyrics paint a vivid, powerful, and lived-in picture.

Despite the powerful imagery, there is an ambiguity to the story that explores the meaning of opening up to (and, conversely, being there for) a stranger (or neighbor) in need of a friend.

This song shows the unique power of musical storytelling and it absolutely floored me in a way that only Alec Benjamin could!
