How Are Dan Vasc’s Covers of Dr. Stein and Amazing Grace Linked?
(All LINKS will open in New Tabs)
Though Helloween’s lyrics seem dark, nearly every song the band (even through many changes over the years) has written, has very meaningful content. Dark stories are told, with warnings, and then “the way” is shown, with the focus on LEAVING the Dark, and ENTERING (and then staying with) the Light. They also go on to explain the power that is gained once the Light has been recognized, in the life still lived in this world where Lucifer (named in several of their songs) tries to hide the Light from all in many devious ways.
If you’ve never heard any of the band Helloween’s music, you can check out the lyrics for their 1988 album, “Keeper of the Seven Keys II” (which contains the most current version of Dr. Stein), HERE.
Dan has chosen to cover the following songs in his HELLOWEEN PLAYLIST:
“I Want Out” (with Tim Hansen)
“Ride the Sky”
“A Tale that Wasn’t Right”
“Eagle Fly Free”
“March of Time”
“I Want Out” (Dan Vasc solo)
One of the songs he has NOT covered, is “Save Us.” (You can find the lyrics for that song, in the album link, above.)
On the other hand, for Easter 2022, Dan chose to sing a hymn, written by a man who had LIVED OUT the lyrics of the HELLOWEEN songs, most of his life, until he finally DID look toward the Light, walk into the Light, and then write his own story about the “Amazing Grace” that he found there.
You can find out more about that, if you take the time to read about John Newton’s life (that also impacted William Wilberforce, who was the man who worked so very hard, in England, to stop slavery). (There are other articles that pertain to “Amazing Grace,” linked within THAT article, on CBN.)
The link that sent me through this research, is on the end screen of Dan’s “Amazing Grace” where the music starts playing again. You can go straight to it by using the link, but there’s a screenshot of it below. If you go to the link, you’ll notice that you can click on the “Dr. Stein” cover photo, and go to that song. If you click on Dan’s photo in the middle, you can see the close-up version. Notice that his eyes are in shadow. One thing I tell people all the time, about “Amazing Grace,” is to WATCH DAN’S EYES very carefully, as he climbs up the ladder of discernment throughout the song. The third “button” on the end screen takes you to Dan’s version of “Adeste Fidelis.”
NOTE: Both of these covers Dan has created, were done in 2022, BEFORE “Amazing Grace” was posted for Easter, on 04/07/2023. The end screen simply shows the JOURNEY he also shows IN “Amazing Grace,” by his eyes, his postures, and his continued peace in the LIGHT, at the end. It was THAT song, that FINALLY got the attention of a whole lot of people, who had not previously even known Dan Vasc existed!
All who have become Dan’s faithful followers, know that Dan is Brazilian. However, not everyone knows that the Brazilian official language is Portuguese. Dan generally differentiates his native language from the original language, by calling it Brazilian Portuguese. I asked one of my newly-favorite reactors (MP Reacts), “Miguel, since you live in Portugal, can you explain to me the difference between “Portuguese” and “Brazilian Portuguese?” He explained that it’s like the difference between British English and U.S. English. There are a few different words, entirely, but mostly it’s a matter of “inflection.” For instance, we here in the U.S. talk might about (and eat) cookies with our coffee, whereas the British may talk about drinking tea while snacking on biscuits. That makes US think of the leavened biscuits that we make to go with a meal, but to THEM, they are picturing what we think of as cookies. Aha!
That reminds me of the fact that the song “Adeste Fidelis” was originally written in…Portuguese! Dan grew up with that song in Brazil, since his mother sang in the choir at their church. Here’s the link to THAT version (with lyrics and LOTS of history). You can follow along with the FIRST verse in Dan’s version, if you have that link open, Other than that, the verses are not the same. If you live in the U.S., you more than likely are familiar with the song we call, “O Come All Ye Faithful.” You can find the lyrics to THAT version, at hymnary.org.
All of the above, brings me to the final connection/link with these three songs. First of all, every time, until about a week ago (middle of September 2023), I had seen that end screen and noticed that “Dr. Stein” was referenced on the left side of the screen, I shied away from going there. Then I heard another reactor (I can’t remember which one because I’ve watched literally hundreds of reactions, now) say, just offhand, as he was exiting, “Hmmm…wonder why he chose to put a link to “Dr. Stein” there?! That seems weird!”
Suddenly, I was curious, also! It took me a few minutes to actually press that button and go to hear the song, because I really didn’t want to know if it was something like a song in praise of the devil. I should have known better, because I have diligently looked into every one of Dan’s covers, now, and have found biblical references (and/or references to the things people should take LEAVE of) in every one. Plus, I have gone through most of the Fearless album, “Chronicles of Ancient Wisdom,” and found all the scriptures that are buried in five of the 12 tracks, and followed the story, that actually contains entries from some of the “other” books from the old covenant (for instance there are several references from The Book of Enoch).
Once I started listening closely to “Dr. Stein,” I was at least put at ease, regarding it being totally an “evil” song, in itself. It’s when the song came to the lyrics about “…his computers…” that it HIT me! Who do we know, in this day and time, looking back into..the 1980s…who is one of the HUGE instigators of all the stuff we, here in the U.S. are living with right now, and that Dan and his family, as well as people all over the rest of the world, have been living with for much longer?! Bill Gates!!!
If you know anything at all about that man, you know that he is HIGHLY linked with all of the others trying to promote Marxism in OUR part of the world, along with all the other places where it has already been in power for many years. Most of you are probably also aware of the part he has played with the recent/still being perpetrated worldwide “pandemic.” If you don’t, then listen again to the Dr. Stein lyrics, regarding DNA, and look up the word “skina,” while you’re at it. You might also want to search out the kind of food Gates has pushed, not to mention the fact that he talks a lot about robots, and I’ll let you look further into that on your own. Yes…I know that Dr. Stein was published in 1988, but that only strengthens the fact that those were the years that Gates was beginning to push his non-biblical ideas, and his “solutions” for reducing the population on Earth.
It was after seeing THOSE things in the lyrics of “Dr. Stein,” that I began looking down through the other HELLOWEEN lyrics, and saying, “Thank you, Lord! You have just proved to me where Dan TRULY stands in his faith. Forgive me for any doubt I held–even that very tiny bit!” Glory to God and Hallelujah!
Check out “Breaking the Silence,” Reel that Dan made (which does NOT directly refer to “older, heavyweight women who have possibly dyed their hair blue,” as some of those very people have imagined because of his use of the terms “blue-haired landwhales and wimps”) right before the music starts to play. Then listen to The Whole Song.
NOTE: If you search for that “colorful term” online, you will find a whole BUNCH of possible definitions, according to a lot of different opinions, and only one of those “trending terms” refers to the above description. Plus, if you’ve watched Dan’s rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner,” then watched his video called, “An Apology” from a few days later, you’ll understand what he means by the term “wimps.” Considering the fact that he CLEARLY states that what both he and Erik (who is Swedish, just as is the writer of “Dr. Stein”) are talking about as “Breaking the Silence,” is standing against “the woke crowd,” and not giving in to the things they want to say that we HAVE to give in to.
At that point, you might also want to listen to Dan’s cover of Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life.”
