The opening half-minute of this song, before the words softly come in, was used last year in a promotional spot by PBS
. The bit featured stars
, and this gorgeous
and instantly recognizable melody
. The scene was oddly reminiscent of the album cover
for And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out
. Watching tv one afternoon, I suddenly heard my favorite song of six months before, was initially very surprised, but then smiled and sighed. Aww...
So if you saw the promo and were wondering who wrote the nice background music, now you know.
