I know I posted about this months ago, but I wanted to post again. Do you have novel “theme songs” or music that helps inspire your story?
I sometimes lose track of all the songs I have. 😛 I haven’t found too many for Lady of the Snow yet, but one that I simply love comes from the popular anime movie by Miyazaki called Princess Mononoke. Both versions are short but the lyrics are so powerful and really make me think of Miyuki, even though the song was written for a completely different fictional character.
Here’s the English version of the song. It’s only about a minute and I encourage you to give it a listen. To me it’s one of the most haunting melodies I’ve heard:
Here’s the Japanese version. It’s a little longer and I’m not sure the lyrics are quite correct, but it’s haunting just the same:
Each version nearly moves me to tears every time (of course I’m uber sensitive :)).
Do you have songs that make you think of your story? Or do you have any songs that are just simply haunting and stay in your mind forever?
