Today’s subject is pining. What songs put you in the pining mood or inspire you to write characters who pine? Since so many of us write ‘romance’ (**shudders dramatically**) this should not be a hard one.
I was watching a great film this week-end called Undertow and I was reminded of one of my favorite ‘pining’ songs: Naturaleza Muerta by Mecano. As my husband pointed out, in the film it is the fisherman who pines for his love while in the song it is the love who pines for the fisherman. But, hey, it’s in Spanish and both Miguels are fisherman. Works for me.
