I need to find the song for the music box in the story.
I hadn't really concerned myself with which song it might be, I thought I would save that for story draft #2, but then yesterday while looking up something else on itunes, I clicked on a non Elivis version of Burning Love, it was an instrumental that sounded very much like music box. And I closed my eyes, thinking of this song as the song played in the music box of the story, and it was sad and funny. And I thought, I need to find that song. The One. I can go with something that was always just instrumental or something that when you hear it, you know the words, and they play on inside your head accompanying the music.
It needs to be a love song. Though given to one character from another, I want it to work for all the main characters in the story. So I want both a husband and wife, parent and child, feel to it.
The box was given in 1970. (in Japan, but I don't think I will try to find a purely Japanese song for it, as I think that will be too hard to do.)
If any ideas, any classic such songs come to you, please do share.
I am off to research. To see what songs are in the category Music box.
