Justin Thornburgh: Sweet Dreams

One listen. I heard the song last night, decided to write about it and so the below now exists. I think in this particular instance it would’ve been better if I were more familiar with the song, though likely what affected the writing here was more thinking about what some of the song was rather than thinking of the whole picture. Had I switched off I think overall the below would’ve covered more of the song.

Justin Thornburgh’s “Sweet Dreams” is from Beyond the Mist, a Final Fantasy IX tribute album.

I hope you enjoy.

Possibly a music box plays out whilst something underneath seems to warp into reality. A last note and a warm synth spreads out from underneath and covers all. It encompasses a grand space and holds a peaceful moment before waving a little as something a feeling off, then grows in intensity.

Suddenly it stops and keys play out something small and peaceful. They play with the idea of resting, then they continue on for a moment. Something ominous stretches long and reaches out and the keys return, spaced and distant; almost too distant to stay with the sound. The ominous sound fades away, leaving something humming to fade out as the song ends.
