Clair de lune

I am a lover of Debussy. I was introduced to this beautiful piece by my piano teacher years ago when she was getting ready for a recital for all her students. I will be forever grateful to her for having me learn this song for that recital so long ago.

The emotion in Clair de lune is so powerful and thought provoking. It's simply enchanting. I become mesmerized listening to this masterpiece.

What makes this song even more intriging to me, it is the first song on the soundtrack of Twilight...you know, the book on the New York Times Best selling list, and the best love story written yet in history! I am even more fascinated with the movie, coming out two weeks from today!!

This is the song that Edward plays for Bella, if she could be a song, this would be her. How romantic and captivating!

Ahhh! I didn't know that! Oh I love that song too! My mom used to play it when we were little and than I grew up and learned it too! It is probably my favorite song in the world and I agree with everything you said about it- You nailed it! Now, I'm even more excited for this movie! woohoo!

I am impressed with your knowledge of the song. I can't wait for the movie to come out, going to the midnight showing with my girlfriends! Now I need to go listen to the soundtrack...
