Dream song

I may have posted this already, but I had a dream I was playing this piece, and it fairly accurately represents how I feel at the moment.

Summer 78 — Yann Tiersen

6 02 2012

Perhaps Fifth Avenue Cinemas does in fact have good taste in music.  I heard this playing in our lobby the other day, and was very surprised to recognize it.  It’s an instrumental piece, written by Yann Tiersen, from the Goodbye Lenin! soundtrack, one of my favourite pieces from the film.  I hadn’t heard it in ages, and after listening to it a few times that day, it really inspired me to pursue writing piano pieces again, since I’ve been unable to write songs to pour out my feelings.  I’ve always been able to write just piano songs with less difficulty, probably since it only requires the piano and no words (and I am very particular about lyrics).

Maybe I’ll get to writing next week, during my week off from school.  I feel like I need it.

La valse d’Amélie — Yann Tiersen

13 11 2011

Well, I tried to post a link to “La Noyée” by Yann Tiersen but apparently EMI doesn’t want Canadians to hear it for some reason.  So instead, here’s another Yann Tiersen piano piece, probably the most well-known one from Amélie.  Since I’m feeling kind of PMS-y right now, I’ll need some melancholic music to help with my random bursts of crying and emo moments.

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 10: A song that makes you fall asleep

19 04 2011

As I mentioned in my facebook post, I don’t have any song that make me fall asleep.  If a song bores me, I just turn it off or switch to a good song.  It was either this one or “Comptine D’autre ete” by Yann Tiersen and I’m trying to post song songs instead, so I decided to go with some Kelly Clarkson.

After listening to it again though, it made me kinda tear up in a sad way.  But “Irvine” isn’t just a song that makes me sad.  I can imagine myself, were I ever sleepy enough to stay up and listen to music, falling asleep to this song…
