It is the day before Christmas so wanted to add something for the holiday even though I’m not the biggest fan of Christmas carols and the typical stuff that seems to dominate every public speaker system this time of year. So we’ll be adding Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence a piano piece composed for the movie of the same title.
It’s one of the songs that I love to listen to to help pick up my mood as it starts off fairly somberly, but picks up more and more intensity as it progresses without changing the melody, but simply through the emotional and presence of the pianist.
The movie was released in 1983 as British-Japanese drama about a POW camp in Japan during World War II. It also stars the late David Bowie as one of the prisoners of the camp.
Hope you enjoy the song with your favorite hot beverage~.
