Pour Anne - John Sercu

Author Comments

This is a song which I wrote for my first girlfriend when I was 16. She was 19.
Older then 19 she unfortunately never got because in the evening of the fourteenth of August 1990 she took her own life. You may ask why I wrote such a happy song for someone who ended her life on such a sad way. Quite simple. When I wrote this song she was still alive. I even remember playing it on my piano for her and she really liked it. And as if she sometimes could be very happy, I made a happy song of it.
After she died I wrote another song for her, which (obviously) sounds less happy. That song is called "Leaving You".
The sound of 'Pour Anne' is a bit simular to the music Richard Clayderman used to make.

Hope you enjoy... and if you do don't hesitate to listen to my other compositions.

With friendly regards,

John Sercu

aww man:(

seriously....i really really am sorry about your gf. i fell like sh*t now :(.
what you have done is amazing. its funny cause i felt kinda sad for some reason even though i didnt read until halfway through. 10/10 great work. just amazing.

nice!

I found the piano to lack.. realism however in its overall sound - was this recorded live? If not perhaps you need to invest in a better sample - or perhaps one thats less bright. You also have some peaking issues on your percussion. Overall a nice little tune though. Sorry about your girlfriend too. :(

-shawn-

beautful

nice song.

How wonderful...

you cared for her so much that you wrote a beautiful song. No matter what you cared about her, im sorry about what happened but its beautiful that you did such a thing.

Wow,

the storys you tell of your life! I can't really understand how you must have felt that day! I HAVE to go listen to leaving you now!

Also I remember your name from a dl I made not so long ago, camping les tourelles. Thats one of my favourite pieces from NG!
