The first time I heard “Breathe Me” by Sia was most likely on a commercial for something, maybe a movie trailer. Her voice is weird and I still don’t know if I even like it. But I do like this song.
There is a certain scene in particular from I’m Only Me that needed a song, a powerful, important, awesome song. I was stressing myself trying to find a match. Why was I stressing though? I mean, really, who cares? Geez, get a grip. But it mattered a lot at the time. I lead a simple life, what can I say?
Anyway, it’s not an obvious choice. At all. I think it’s perfect though. The mood of it especially is perfection.
The problem with this song is how people equate it to self-harm, suicide, depression, etc. Don’t believe me? Read the comments on YouTube. Wow. My scene is nothing like this, but I still stand by my choice. The core of the scene is Lily simply wanting Tyler to be there for her in that moment. So I think this works well for that.
If you’re not into Sia’s weird “I’m dying-get me oxygen” voice, listen to the instrumental. It is amazing.
Unless I find a way to be super cryptic, where I say something without saying anything, this will be the last soundtrack song I share. I may change my mind though. It’s my blog after all. 🙂
Till next time.
