I’ve always loved Claude Debussy’s Clair de Lune.  It’s featured in the movie Frankie and Johnny with Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer (if I see that this movie’s on TV, no matter how late it is, I always watch, I just love it to bits).

This piece makes me feel sad, wistful, hopeful and dreamy all together and whenever I hear it, I always stop what I’m doing to listen #sappycheeseballalert.

Have a lovely weekend.

  1. Oh I’ve always adored Clair de lune. It’s so nostalgic for me, it reminds me of my grandmother who was a magnificent pianist. This was always the first tune she would play whenever I visited and because she passed away when I was young it’s a dreamy happy/sad memory for me. So beautiful.
