I'm writing a play-well a musical to be more precise-that's using a mix of original and cover songs, albeit with slight differences. I'm doing this only for fun, not to put up on broadway or anything like that...(yet
but I'm a little stuck.
The storyline is a fairly simple one: This boy has a crush on a girl, but the girl's unaware of it. They're asked to put together a performance for a school, so they do, along the way falling in love and dating. Another boy thinks that the girl should be his, so he works to seduce her, but she resists (her lover finds out, but is unaware that she resisted). The next day, her lover doesn't show up so she thinks that he doesn't love her, but he shows up at the last minute, finding out the truth and the two are about to go onstage together, but she develops stage fright. He manages to give her the confidence and eventually they wind up telling the story to their children.
OK, that's the storylinefor you, but I'm stuck on songs. The cover songs I'm using are partially taken from Moulin Rouge and are:
-Come What May.
-One Day I'll Fly Away.
-Bits and pieces of El Tango De Roxanne (for the unfamiliar, it's the song that's played as the Duke seduces Satine)
There are three other songs I have in mind: a theme for the girl, a theme for the couple and a finale song. Can anyone give me ideas? Even just like little tunes I can take and possibly put into a melody and variations type song. I've put it specifically for the musical people here because I want these to be instrumental and as original as I can. One piece I did have in mind as a love theme for the couple was supposedly taken from Final Fantasy X...it's called Sky Theme, or Tidus and Yuna's theme.
