This one took a while. First, I was traveling home. Second, the internet is terrible and my site didn't want to load. Third, I had company visit and want to socialize. And lastly... it's another song where I couldn't find the person to attribute them. Or rather, I couldn't find anything active of theirs. I know who it is. It's Claire Littley. And the song is her rendition Fly Me to the Moon. But... usually I like to tag them or give them a link on YouTube. Sadly, I can't do that.
Firstly, let's look at the song. It's a beautiful song no matter which version you go with, but I like Claire's take and, frankly, the bossa nova feel is just... lovely. I shared Girl from Ipanema a long time ago, and the reason I liked it is the same with this song. It's a great cleanser. When you're writing dark, disturbing scenes, when people are dying and everything seems to falling to parts, this is a good song to cleanse your mind. Not everything has to be dreary in a dark novel, and this song lets me enjoy a little little feel when I need it.
Since I couldn't find any signs of her being active since MySpace, enjoy this random YouTube channel featuring her song and my favorite version of Fly Me to the Moon. Thank you, Claire.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
