Story behind the song

Almost every movie I have eve seen has a scrolling of the credits for it at the end. Typically this includes music playing as one reads the listings. So, I wanted to simply write a piece of music that could be used in a movie. Sometimes motivations are really easy to conjure up and in this case it couldn’t have been easier.
