I always love it when people recommend me new music and musicians to explore. And a couple of weeks ago, Micah suggested the music group 2Cellos to me. As a fan of cello music in general, I of course did check out their music, and that little foray into the music world led me to this week’s writing music, an amazing cover of Hurt. This is another song that can be filed way into my list of ‘songs for sad scenes’ when I need a song to get me into the right sorrowful mood.
This is a very subdued piece, not over-the-top sad, but quietly hopeless. To me, it suits a scene set in a dungeon where a character is sitting in the pitch blackness, despairing of ever getting out, or ever achieving their goal. The song might also suit a scene where an exiled character is lamenting the loss of their homeland, or a person quietly grieving the death of a loved one.
Have you listened to 2Cellos before? What are you listening to this week? Recommend me some great music!
