I Was Busy All Day Having Meetings and Recording Things and Not Writing, So, Here, Have Another Tinkly Moody Pretty Piano Song

This is “I Will Love You” from the band Fisher. It’ll cheer you right up, it will.
Beautiful voice, beautiful sentiment, but not what I was expecting from the adjective “tinkly”. I should probably have paid more attention to that other adjective, “moody”. It’s cheerful for Goth-level values of cheerful. I think I’m gonna go find some bubble gum pop, maybe from back in the John Hughes-era soundtracks mentioned in a previous thread. Or, oooh, I know, “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany! (At least I’m not cruel enough to provide a link :) )
Wait – writers have to have meetings?
I thought the point of working for yourself was getting away from these corporate substitutions for masturbation…?
My meetings are about pretty awesome things. But they are still meetings.
We have ALOT of meetings at work. We call our company Meetings.
Here’s a rambly moody piano song, Vienna Teng – Eric’s Song, (I assume you know who she is). Her later stuff is more ‘loopy’.
Love. Her song “Breakable” from the Great Expectations soundtrack saw many, many repeats during the wee hours of my late teens.
You want cheering up?
Been on a huge Vienna Teng kick since Aims came out.
John, after trying to listen to the last two songs you posted, I think you need a vaca. Someplace sunny and warm,
You’ve been cooped up inside too long
I blame the polar vortex.
Fun Fact: This song was going to be in the soundtrack for the Kevin Costner film Message in a Bottle, but the test audiences spent too much time crying during the scene it was played in so they pulled it.
Ooo. Now doesn’t THAT just slot in perfectly to my WIP’s writing playlist. Thanks!
