Lost Soul – Dilip Seneviratne – Piano Solo
“SOME SOULS ARE TOO BEAUTIFUL FOR THIS WORLD AND SO THEY LEAVE” – by Dilip Seneviratne
The tune for “Lost Soul” Initially came about in 1995, Inspired by a very special soul, gone too soon in the year 1994.
For whatever reason, I never got down to recording it at the time. I started off writing a few lines to the melody but it didn’t come off that good. I thought of humming the tune into a tape recorder in case I forgot the melody, but I didn’t need to, since the tune was stuck in my head.
I shelved the project for some time and several years later tried adding lyrics to the melody once again, but nothing good came out of it and I gave up on it. A couple of years ago while seated at the piano on one of my mood swings,
I started thumping this tune at the piano and then realized that this melody should only be instrumental. But I still never got down to recording it until the lockdown came along. And so here it is 21 years later I finally recorded it.
