On 12 March, I was exhausted from the frequent aftershocks, the horrible news, the confused flood of informations on Twitter and so on.
I felt "Music is nothing for the time like this."
Then I got a mail from my friend, it said, "Sing."
He continued, "You might give them some courage with music."
At the same time, I saw the tweet which said, "For musicians, music is not guilty. It's a hope."
I decided to write a song. I thought carefully about what kind of song should I write.
There were already many cheering songs by famous musicians. If I started to write a cheering song from that time, it would not mean much.
I was recalling the children's book I had read in the elementary school days. It was one of the popular series called, "Zukkoke San-Nin-Gumi". Less than Harry Potter's popularity of today, but it was quite popular in that time. The story of the one I was recalling is that main characters face a huge earthquake and they have many difficulties after the earthquake. The boy dreams about the earthquake many times, and every time he gets up in his sweaty body.
At that time, my mother said "I can't sleep well because of the aftershocks in the midnight." Some of my friend said the same things on Twitter.
The song which eases the anxiousness of the people. "This might be what need to write," I thought.
For the people in Touhoku, and also for the people everywhere who can't spend nights at peace.
At the moment moment,
"This is the time to sleep,"
the humming of the first verse dropped from my mouth with the melody which I had hummed before the earthquake. It fit. (The lyrics were revised to "This is the time for bedtime" at the final version)
This is the story about how I started to write "Good Day, Good Night."
I'd like to write about how I made the video in my next post.
I'm sorry to you who are getting bored from reading the posts about the same song. This is going to be the last post about the song.
Thank you for reading.
