SOUNDTRACK: It is difficult to try to find music to compliment this photograph of a beautiful and expressive child. What words would convey the right description of the moment? In the end, I thought of how her parents and family must think about her.
So I chose the lovely song “You’re my Everything” by Harry Warren, but I wanted it performed by a jazz musician with the words as an aside, because a jazz performance allows us to give the music its own meaning if we want to.
Yet these poetic lyrics do fit the theme and the music. It’s your option as to how to experience this song:
“You’re my everything underneath the sun
You’re my everything rolled up into one
You’re my only dream, my only real reality
You’re my idea of a perfect personality.”
“ You’re my everything, everything I need,
You’re the song I sing and the book I read.
You’re a way beyond belief and just to make it brief .
You’re my winter, summer, spring, my everything .”
Here’s The Miles Davis Quintet from the “‘Round Midnight” album.
