The OST (original soundtrack) of the movie Serendipity features some of the rarest, and the most beautiful, romantic songs in the history of music. And, “Northern Sky” by Nick Drake is one such magical song that you would love to listen all your life.
Why this song?
For those who don’t know, “Northern Sky” was not originally composed for “Serendipity”. It is a song from one of Drake’s album called “Bryter Layter”, which came in the year 1970. This song is more than 40 years old, but its beauty has increased over the years.
Northern Sky is one of the best songs of Nick Drake, and is definitely in the list of the best romantic songs ever. The main reasons for this are as follows:
- In this time, where most of the so called Romantic Songs spread “Noise Pollution”, this sweet and melodious romantic song is a treat to ears. This song has a minimal but very melodious music.
- The vocals by Nick Drake are not just soothing to ears, but also takes this song to an another level. No one could have sung this song better than Nick Drake himself.
- What makes this song more special, are its beautiful lyrics. Northern Sky is filled up with soulful, and romantic, lyrics that will fill your heart with warmth.
Final words on “Northern Sky”
Every time I listen to this song, it fills my heart with love, and happiness. If you love romantic songs, you will fall in love with it instantly. It’s quite unfortunate that the songs of Nick Drake were not popular, when he was alive. And, even now, where Justin Bieber gets the highest views for his songs, this magical song is still unheard by a lot of people.
And, finally, the placement of this song in the movie “Serendipity” is just fantastic. The way both the characters finally meet each other, with this song in the background, gives the movie a perfect ending.
And, like previous songs, the lyrics are not included in this video. However, the video is very beautiful, and compliments this song perfectly. The following are the lyrics of this song:
