Melancholy solo piano. Mysterious piano waltz accompanied by oom-pah piano chords. Builds anticipation with swells in volume and tempo, Searching, suspenseful and sad, sounding slightly French, Amélie-like, in a quirky European style.
Melancholy, cinematic solo piano. Quick, soft piano phrases. An emotional melody enters above the undulating broken piano chords. Then a slow section of despondent block chords. Nostalgic, romantic and sad, slightly French, Amélie-style onscreen heartbreak or inner emotional turmoil.
Acoustic version available.
Beautiful solo piano track. Soft, waltzing piano chord progressions become a fuller sound, a more urgent, emotional piano passage full of longing. Moves to dramatic high register piano to end. Thoughtful, reflective and romantic, perfect, Amélie-esque undulating piano to accompany an introverted character, finally opening up to the world; an awakening; a ray of sunshine.
Slow, thoughtful piano track. Slow-paced, piano chords, with a hint of Amélie-style European nostalgia. Pensive and emotional with a hint of hope. Would suit a commercial for a family-friendly service, saving for a rainy day or for a reflective, arthouse-style Film/TV sequence.
Melancholy solo piano. Amélie-style minor oom-pah chords, growing in intensity and embellishment throughout the track. Another line of piano plays a lyrical melody above the regular chords. An energetic chorus brings a modulation and intricate break. Back to opening chords for a finish. Emotional and wretched, yet passionate, would suit an advert or TV scene requiring Gallic charm and impulsive, reckless emotion.
‘Underscore’ version features chords only, no melody line.
Repetitive arpeggio on the left hand with a wistful, romantic yet melancholy melody above. European, emotive and serious, but with a hint of sunshine and hope, suitable for a rainy TV/Film sequence or a cautionary advert.
Mysterious multi-instrumental. Atmospheric feedback intro followed by oom-pah-pah waltz rhythm and childish marimba melody. Orchestral strings and accordion join with a Gallic-inspired melody, reminiscent of Amélie. The melancholy gives way to excitable, erratic rhythms on all instruments, before a dynamic final section with passionate violin and jumpy marimba. Magical, melancholy and manic, perfect music to accompany a rainy midnight walk through the streets of Paris, only to end up in a sleazy speakeasy at the centre of an absinthe-sodden freakshow.
Wistful solo piano. Dramatic, comedic chordal piano descent before Amélie-style European piano. Lolloping, waltz section, turns melancholy with low, stormy piano chords. Rumbling bass clef notes before the sun comes out with a bright tinkling segment, leading to a romantic waltzing around the keys. Indecisive, dramatic, tender yet troubled, would suit a European film set in on rainy Paris street, the character’s tumultuous lives at odds with their quaint surroundings.
French accordion waltz. Oom pah pah waltz rhythm on accordion with an emotional accordion melody moving between major and minor, happy and sad above. Nostalgic, plaintive and intriguing, would suit a advert or TV/Film/Doc montage referencing Amélie or French seaside kitsch.
Simple piano track. Piano arpeggios beneath an emotional piano melody. Tender, bittersweet and melancholy, a yearning ode to love lost and found, perfect for Amélie-style romantic adverts or pensive TV scenes.
