Halloween is over, sadly but true. And to me that means that autumn is in the past and winter is taking over,
and with that said, Christmas is on the way.
Today I got inspiration from this image. The light outside this morning, was amazing. So when i sat down at the piano,
I finally felt inspired.
I've always dreamed of writing a really good Christmas song, I guess like many musicians before me.
But the thought itself is terrifying. There are so many simple, beautiful and touching christmas songs, so why do the world need
another one? And why do we love the ones that we love? Is it because they are extremely well written songs,
are they catchy, or is it simply because it's tradition? If you listen to them every christmas you' ll start to love them?
Hmm.. My problem, I think, is that I write wordless music, so how do I know if I have written a christmas song?
Are there any rules that I don't know about? Like which chords I'm supposed to use? Instruments? If I add some bells,
will it then sound like Christmas ?
Today I've written a song which is, I think, inspired by the great norwegian composer and pianist; Bugge Wesseltoft's legendary album
" It' s snowing on my piano", which is a cheesy title for an album 😂 but it's a brilliant album and the title say something about
what expectations you as a listener can have to the music. And it makes it automatical a Christmas album.
So I guess that's what I' m supposed to do, find a good title that includes snow, winter, bells or simply Christmas😅
Have a great Day!
Lot's of Love
