30 Day Song Challenge: Day 4 (belated) – A song that makes you sad.

One song that is guaranteed to make me sad is this one, Oliver Schroer’s Field of Stars.

When I first heard this song I literally bawled my eyes out. It is played by the late Oliver Schroer who died of Leukemia at the age of 52, and he recorded it in one ofthe many churches on the Camino de Santiago Pilgrim Trail. I did have this song pegged as one I wanted at my own funeral, but I’ve actually got one that’s more apt for that in my eyes and it’ll come up over the course of this challenge. This tune doesn’t make me think about death so much as the idea of just walking into some of New Zealand’s pristine majestic wilderness and disappearing, never to return.
