Melodic Mondays: Nightsky by Tracey Chattaway

Hey, all! So I actually have a story behind the song today (yay me)! See, I have this Cinderella-retelling idea going on in the back of my head, but focusing on minor (and original) characters of the story rather than Cinderella and the prince. Basically, the idea I started with was looking at other people who might’ve been at that ball, for instance, a nobleman or a relative of the prince also finding love among the girls there. I was originally thinking it would be a flash fic or a short story, but as always happens when I attempt to write short, the idea exploded. POW. So now, it's definitely going to be a novel. Hopefully a short one? But definitely a novel.

Oh well.

Anyways. I don’t want to say too much about it because it’s not a main project and it’s gonna be ages before anything happens with it, but I’ve been gathering ideas and attempting to actually do a little planning this time before I dive in and pants the thing. Obviously, there will be love, ideally forbidden, because strangely, I’m kinda into that. And as I was considering the love story of two characters in particular, I came across this song and realized it was perfect for them.


I love the wonder-filled tone of Night Sky, and the lovely rise and fall of it. I can almost see the outing the two of them are on (definitely at night ;) , probably stars and other gorgeous nature stuff to look at), the whole evening almost surreal, wild, exciting, rising, rising, till the moment where they reach the top, that perfect second where time stands still and all seems right because they're together. And then of course, reality comes crashing down as the song falls and ends, and they have to go their separate ways.

If you couldn’t tell, I’m minorly enjoying brainstorming this idea. ;)

So, what did you all think about the song? Also, what have you been listening to lately? I’ve been wanting to find some new music with lyrics, but I’m having trouble finding some I can really get into. If you’ve got any recommendations, definitely comment them! Can’t wait to hear from you all!
