The Dance Scene

In Cheri Part 3, there a scene where she is asked to play for a crowd of people. The setting of the story is in a very different culture than where the song she played originated, and so the people listen reverently as she plays a soft tune. As I wrote the scene, I imagined the tune to be very much like the beginning of this song:

And then she is set up on a table, and changes her tune to a lively jig. I imagined it to be very like the ending of the song above.

Suddenly, a contest is declared, and her friend Kiki decides to enter, challenging her to play something worth dancing to. Cheri plays something very like this:

Only, in my head, there's lyrics to this song, and everyone knows them.

The scene ends, and Cheri gets to go home, but as long as I'm sharing some of my favorite clips, I figured I'd toss this one in because it's just plain awesome! :-)

Have a happy day!

  1. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please email me: news@apolitical.info. Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:


    I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.
