“Nightingale” (Demi Lovato) reminds me of “Cinderella” (from the Brothers Grimm).
Not only does the Disney version of Cinderella have her singing specifically about a nightingale, but the feelings of exhaustion and a certain degree of hopelessness in the song also remind me strongly of how Cinderella might have felt while with her stepsisters and stepmother. I can just hear her singing this to her (at the time, imaginary) prince.
“Can you be my nightingale?
Sing to me, I know you’re there
You could be my sanity
Bring me peace, sing me to sleep
Say you’ll be my nightingale.”
