Day 69: The Power of Good-Bye

Posted by annagrace under Days 1-100

I decided that this project needed some music, because I haven’t had any in awhile! So I pulled out the trusty Smash Pop Hits of 1998-1999 book again and found a piece that was a decent key for recorder. I came across Madonna’s The Power of Good-Bye! I love that music video and think it’s so beautiful (although the chess playing reminds me of that scene in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, hahaha)! You know I love me some Madonna, so I was immediately like PERFECT!

I was planning on just doing recorder and voice, but the piano part was waaaaayyy too fast for my arthritic little fingers! And it was really high and shrill sounding on soprano recorder, so I transposed it for alto. After I wrote out the piano part and recorded the recorder, I decided that I needed to record the words, just because I love this song! So it might have not been necessary, and it made it take a bit longer, but I like the way it turned out!
