I Never Dreamed Someone Like You Could Love Someone Like Me

Happy Halloween! Here's me doing that song from the film "Carrie" where she gets to dance at the Prom. Maybe it's not a trick and Tommy really likes her? It seems as though things are finally looking up for Carrie. Oops, nope. CARRIE WHITE BURNS IN HELL!

Did you know that the original song (written by Pino Donaggio & Merrit Malloy) is sung on the soundtrack by Katie Irving, sister of Amy Irving who plays Sue Snell in the movie? And that their real-life mother is Priscilla Pointer, who played Sue Snell's mother in the film? Well it's true.

You arrange stuff really beautifully. I haven't watched Carrie—I saw the Sissy Spacek one way back in the 80's and I am sure the 2013 version has a better prom song; and however you've modified it (I don't know the original) you've done a great job. This sounds like a very late-Pavement chord progression with some 90's type lyrics; good enough for me to pay attention to—but your arrangements are just so crisp and clear and bright.

Also I am a sucker for glockenspiel solos.

All the voices here work together really well. What's that kind of reedy/keyboardy voice that comes in around 3:11?

Thanks! Yeah it's a Logic keyboard in the Q-Sampler called "Circus Organ." Kinda goofy but I liked it.
