Chance of Rain song by Josh, @nextdoornomad

chance of rain

The air is thick with the scent of oncoming rain. The simplicity of having to be nowhere on a gloomy day, is reflected in this mellow song. Steel acoustic strings reverberate, creating a sense of nostalgia. Like an old vynil playing on a 70’s record player.

la seine

The most cinematic of his songs, to capture the essence of the Seine River in Paris. The notes seem to tumble on like the running of water, capturing the emotion of when, by the Seine, the lovers experienced the magic of Paris reborn beneath the spring sun.

attendre

He waits for her to get ready before they go. She’s standing in front of the window, fixing her hair, and bathed in the dusty golden glow. Attendre (waiting) is a fleeting moment captured, inspired by the desire for coffee on the cafe terrace with one’s beloved.

rising and setting

Rising and Setting is for the sweetness of first light, and the silence of the night. It tenderly provokes emotions through winding melodic notes, reminiscent of a cinematic Parisian film. The song moves in a circular motion, like the cycle of the sun.

le petite salon

Tender notes remind of lazing about without any cares. Le Petite Salon was inspired by the love of the famous queen’s rooms of Petite Trianon, and the idealized lifestyle of a simplistic mood amidst opulent grander. The song almost transports one there…

chevet

Sweet and melodic notes form a romantic tune, inspired by slow moments spent in bed. The morning light pours through the crack in the curtain, and he watches her, waiting for her to wake up. “Chevet” means bedside, or also “beadhead”.

pensée profonde

Pensée Profonde (deep thought) induces a feeling of warmth and happiness through melodic and easy-going chords. A moment of bliss captured in this melody is a reminder of letting go of darker feelings to embrace lightheartedness. La vie est belle.

mèandre

Mèandre (meander) captures the energetic attitude of the night. It’s when the lamplights come on, and the city streets glow with the warmth pouring from windows and doors. The song promises adventure ahead, when Paris comes alive and the wine is flowing.

dimanche

The radio plays in the background, and the windows are open to the streets below, filled with slow-strolling passers-by. It’s afternoon, and the sweet and slow notes of this song give a taste of the simplicity of a lazy Dimanche (Sunday).

Nextdoornomad music: Le Palais

le palais

Reminiscent of old chamber music, and inspired by walking through the sunlit streets of Paris. This song is dedicated to the beauty found in a place so full of history- where by just being there, you can almost feel like part of a masterpiece.

romance de la pluie

Once, the lovers were caught in the rain, in Paris at night. They went from doorway to doorway, taking shelter from the downpour, finding romance in the glistening avenues. Romance de la Pluie (romance of the rain) is a musical memory, mellow and sweet.
