OC in Songs, 3

"Comptine d'un autre été", Yann Tiersen

I had to start with this beautiful piano suite from the movie "Amélie", as it is literally the first thing that used to come to my mind upon hearing the name -nowadays is sweet Ly.

I literally imagine this song as her theme, and I could see her strolling around the halls of Hearthstone Academy with this as a background.

"Cry me a river", Julie London

In a beautiful world, her brother approaches her to try and solve their conflicts, and this is the song she would dedicate to him.
"Now you say you're lonely, you cray the whole night through. Well you can cry me a river."

"Jenny of Olstones", Florence + The Machine

She is suddenly in the corner of her room back at her parent's place in Toulouse, crying as she goes through the pages of the familiar album and remembers all those sweet moments of the past.
"High in the halls of the kings who are gone, Jenny would dance with her ghosts."

"Let me down slowly", Alec Benjamin

art, cafe, and cities image art, fashion, and femme fatale image
In the midst of a mental breakdown, she wonders if she will be able to fully trust those around her and herself.
"Could you find a way to let me down slowly? A little sympathy I hope you can show me."

"Journey", Michael Salvatori

Music that represents her journey from the second she sets a foot in Catachan. It starts melancholic and it slowly becomes more powerful and empowering. (+ I can actually imagine dancing some parts of it)

"Concerto in E minor - Opus 4 No. 2: Allegro", Antonio Vivaldi

Huge throwback to that class that Mr. Samuel challenged her to play a piece as a way of punishing her for "looking down" his class. I do a younger Amélie playing this.

"Reminiscent", Yiruma

couple, love, and aesthetic image narnia, book, and Lucy image
The memory of a younger version of herself playing the piano with her mother for her father and brother one gloomy evening besides a fireplace and then eating comforting food as they laughed.

"Shallow", Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

photography image quotes, rebel, and albert camus image
Amélie reflects on her past and chooses to go beyond the monotony that her life was filled with and fill it with adventure instead.
"In all the good times I find myself longing for change and in the bad times I fear myself."

"Weight of the world", Keiichi Okabe (ft. J'Nique Nicole, ENG version)

Image by midnightdancing girl, lips, and skin image
The night she stood up for Louis but she felt as if she was unable to save her own blood.
"I wish that someday somehow, that I could save every one of us but the truth is that I'm only one girl."

"Cover", Day6

black, dark, and mirror image indie image
No more facades.
"I’ve covered it up, but as time passes, the coverings have fallen off and ripped. You’ve finally seen me..."
