30 August 2022 - Cœur De Pirate - Off To Sleep

"So, it's been almost two weeks since we posted anything about Cœur de Pirate here.  Aren't we due?"

"We get it.  You watched iZombie.  Can we move on, please?"

"(sigh) Fine.  No, we're not due.  What else could you possibly post about that French lady?"

"She's French Canadian.  And she owns her own record label, so perhaps French-Canadian businesswoman would be more appropriate?"

"Wow.  I didn't know that!"

"How could you not know that?  Do you not read my blog?"

"My computer doesn't know what to do with the weird o-e thing and just drops it.  So the links just say Pirate Stray Dog or something."

"(facepalm) OK, well, she did a video game soundtrack.  The song you hear when you finish the game is really beautiful and quite possibly the most epic video game song ever written."

"What game was it?"

"Child of Light. By Ubisoft.  Critics loved it and it's been released for just about every major gaming platform."

"Wait - that's an old game and it's all childhood stories."

"I mean... 2014, but it's still being released for new platforms."

"OK, that's cool.  I suppose you're going to want to say something about the soundtrack and how Béatrice Martin wrote the whole soundtrack, not just for piano, but for symphony, and worked with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra to record a good portion of these tracks?"

"Um... yeah.  That's pretty much exactly what I was going to say."

"You know, I do pay attention.  Just don't post the whole album like you did with that other instrumental album she did."   

"How about I just post that finishing song?  Maybe a live version?"

"OK, that works."
