SONGWRITING MONTH DAY 21: Contrast Love Song

PROMPT: Write a song about how much you love something, but write it in a minor key. Let the words contrast the tune, so the words aren’t said, necessarily, but the tune is.

OR

Write a song with really sad words but with a happy tune.

SONG OF THE DAY: Born

My favorite love song by one of my favorite bands, Over the Rhine.  The album this song comes from, “Drunkard’s Prayer” is incredible.  It tells the story, as this song does, of a couple who revives a troubled marriage.  It has some of the saddest, most beautiful songs on it I’ve ever heard–so sad and beautiful that I cannot listen to this album at all if I am in anyway broken-hearted.  But I’m not today, and hopefully you’re not either, so check this album out.  I suggest listening to it tonight while you make dinner.
