  • Running to 4 minutes 9 seconds, this Candice Night solo composition is further proof if any were needed that this lady is the complete package.

    In an interview with Miriam "NocturnalConcerto," she said it was "originally... a haunting ballad but then I changed the sound to be more reminiscent of a Kelly Clarkson song when I heard that sound."

    Although husband Ritchie Blackmore may not have contributed in any way to this song, it is not entirely out of character with Blackmore's Night, who are well known for experimenting and combining ye olde with the new. In this case, Candice has gone forward, the distortion, particularly of her voice, gives "Dangerous Smile" a pleasing techno feel. >>
